"China is targeting U.S. government and commercial computers for espionage," and has developed cyber espionage capabilities so advanced that the U.S. "may be unable to counteract or even detect the efforts," the commission said in the 2008 edition of a report it sends annually to Congress.
Such capability makes the U.S. highly vulnerable.

I wonder if these - (SPHERES) Synchronized Position Hold Engage Re-Orient Experimental Satellites - could account for the little white "orbs" that have been seen around the world by people. They have been seen in swarm like quantities - Mexico comes to mind.
So, why do you guys think? Or would they be too high up too see - even with a strong reflection of sunlight?
I really doubt it. I observed satellites with an uninstrumented eye in conditions of low light pollution, and these were likely large satellites. When it's not completely dark, and the object is small, forget about it.
I like the idea but it's not plausible.

Nice new toy that can stop One missile.
What if they send 500 or more very small missiles?
With mincheistion they and make a system that sends up a rocket.
And in space sends 500 small missiles.
About the only thing to stop that is a EPM missile.
When this starts it will be a great fireworks show.
As for lasers. No good. Just mirror coat the missiles.
