Standing by the new space policy the White House issued last year, a U.S. State Department official said China's Jan. 11 test of an anti-satellite weapon in space is not cause to open negotiations on a new treaty that would place limits on what countries can do in space.

“We do not think there is an arms race in space. The United States believes that the existing body of existing international agreements — including the Outer Space Treaty, as well as the liability and respective compensation conventions — provide the appropriate legal regime for space,” the State Department official said Friday in a telephone interview.

Does anyone think that the recent actions by China will not lead to a new weapons war in space? I can't imagine what can prevent it. It's the same force that created the Arms Race during the Cold War and encouraged all of the countries in the world to expand their navies during the explorations of the new world in the 1500's and 1600's.

If China continues with the anti-satellite weapons, USA and maybe the UK will start up putting weapons in space. Its just a matter of time, like everything else.

Heres most, if not all international space weapons treaties listed on this site
