The Bush administration is seeking to develop a powerful ground-based laser weapon that would use beams of concentrated light to destroy enemy satellites in orbit.
The largely secret project, parts of which have been made public through Air Force budget documents submitted to Congress in February, is part of a wide-ranging effort to develop space weapons, both defensive and offensive. No treaty or law forbids such work.

terrorists lol all this terroist talk i see going on is just silly, no terrorist organization would have that much tech knowledge and captial without being under the direction of a national department and resources which would mean that the said terrorists are government employees or forces and not terrorists.

Wrong, at least one "terrorist organization" has the ability: Iran

Would they have the capital to invest in such technology though? I know America has one or the largest military spending budgets? And I presume Iran's is a fraction of America's? And I presume this technology will be extremely advanced and will require high knowledge and high finances?

IMO I don't think Iran would have either the tech nor the money.. but then again it is my opinion

I say screw the ground based laser. It's much more feasable to make a space based one and it can have more uses like missile defense,OCA,DCA,knocking out satellites and many more. I love this DEW stuuf it's so awesome.
