Russia and the spy satellite
Seems Russia is protesting the fact that the US wants to use a missile to shoot down a falling satellite. The US claims to want to blow it up with a missile so it will not fall to Earth with environmentally harmful fuel. Now Russia seems to think it is an excuse for the US to test its capability to shoot down objects in space. Well, my solution is for the US to say "ok we won't shoot it down"....then use the remaining fuel to direct it to fall on Russia. Then we can say "well you should have let us shoot it down!"
