Is China Preparing for Space Warfare?

So China is working to militarize space? Big surprise they are ignoring yet another set of treaties they signed onto.

What people seem to forget about China is even though it is the worlds second largest economy, it still gets hundreds of billions in foreign aid from countries around the world.

Burgess stated in little-noticed written testimony prepared for an appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee that Beijing is developing missiles, electronic jammers, and lasers for use against satellites.

Much of the space warfare activity is being carried out under the guise of China’s supposedly non-military space program, he said.
