Subject: India Needs To Counter Offensive Chinese Space Weapons
Softwar    6/17/2008 11:49:25 AM India's army chief said his country needs a military space program because its satellites are vulnerable to attack from countries like China, which shot down a disabled weather satellite last year. Gen. Deepak Kapoor's comments highlight the military's growing concern that China, India's giant neighbor to the north, poses a threat to India as it expands its power and influence in the region. The Indian Express newspaper quoted Kapoor, speaking Monday at a local conference on using space for military purposes, as saying that India urgently needed to "optimize space applications for military purposes." He pointed out that "the Chinese space program is expanding at an exponentially rapid pace in both offensive and defensive content."
