China starting to get more aggressive?

Alright, so China’s already aggressive in a number of ways.

Now they’re getting into the act by testing their laser systems on spy satellites.

According to Defense News:

China has fired high-power lasers at U.S. spy satellites flying over its territory in what experts see as a test of Chinese ability to blind the spacecraft, according to sources.

Given that China is the current leader in cheap lasers, I wonder what kind of power they’re holding back for military use.

If you keep looking over the fence at you neighbor’s back yard, you’re going to get poked in the eye, so it’s not surprising that China might be worried about U.S. forces stationed on their doorstep
