India says it successfully test-fires anti-satellite weapon

India confirmed it successfully test-fired an anti-satellite weapon on Wednesday. PM Modi said in an address broadcast live that scientists had destroyed a low earth orbit satellite with a missile, demonstrating India’s capacity as a ’space power’. Modi’s announcement is seen as the latest bid to flex military muscle as his party seeks to retain power in the upcoming polls.

Saudi: blows up Yemeni schools, oppresses women, murders journalists. US: Let's give them stuff. India: blows up satellites, wishes for nuclear war with pakistan. US: Let's give them stuff. Israel: in the top 10 most powerful nations, top 20 for economy. US: Let's give them stuff. Anything that benefits Americans. US: We can't afford it.

I would ask why you would ever want something like this, but I get it, Big guns are cool. They should probably come after taking care of that public health crisis you call cities though, just sayin.

Trump's silly space force doesn't seem super far fetched or out of this world anymore. (I apologise for the really bad pun. I can't help myself) it'll become useful in these decades to come

Yay another country who wants to put derbies in Low Earth Orbit. Hope they realized it'll effect the whole world and not just their enemies.

Good use of public funds coming from a country with no public care and a huge level of poverty.
