Today's blood pressure raiser

Comes from this otherwise well written article on the international law and treaty implications of the US 193 shootdown. While the meat of the article discussing the difficulty in writing and defining international space weapons treaties is good, it starts off by equating the modified SM-3 used to shoot down US 193 with the Chinese ASAT test last year. As anyone who knows what they're talking about can tell you, that's like comparing apples to bananas.
