Chains Wants Space Weapon Talks

China wants to begin work on an international space weapons treaty. No, that isn't a joke.

China has always advocated the peaceful use of space, and advocates strengthening international exchanges and cooperation on the peaceful use of outer space," [Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu ] said at a regularly scheduled news conference.

Except of course when they created the largest Earth orbit debris event in history with a space weapon last month. But they said they won't do it again.

It is unlikely the US will be part of such a treaty, as President Bush signed an order last October opposing treaties limiting the US right to develop and deploy space weapons.
