I was wondering if any of you have heard about microwave weapons, specifically orbital ones (Weaponized Satellite). I have looked around and found scraps of info here and there, including microwave weapons being tested on unwilling US Citizen subjects. I'm looking for something more destructive, something that could destroy a vehicle or building with pin-point accuracy. I'm sure it exists, so I'm sure some of you have seen something about it.

Thanks for your constructive input

It is true. But for some reason I don't believe that such a treaty would stop the "shadow government".

And RUSSO: thanks for the input, I found that thread very informative...

naw, i think uwave weapons are too problematic. they can be reflected back to the source kind of like lasers.

It's not a bill; it's an international space treaty meant to maintain neutrality of space.

Of course that isn't likely to happen considering how many weapons the US puts up there and how many weapons rival countries like Russia and China have to deploy up there in counter response.
