Russia and China have proposed at the United Nations that weapons of all kinds be banned from space. To its credit, the Bush administration rejected this proposal, opting instead for a policy of openness. The U.S. stands for no restrictions of any kind in space.

It's difficult to believe that anyone would be so naive as to believe that if the U.S. agree not to carry weapons into space, all other nations would follow suit. If history carries any weight, exactly the opposite will happen. More realistically, however, is that such a treaty would be entirely unenforceable, since even an "unarmed" object in space is, itself, a potent ballistic weapon.

I have not seen any Democrat reaction, but I predict that there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth at the "belligerent" administration stance, when we should be reaching out across the table to our enemies and former enemies in a spirit of friendship.

The idea is almost as silly as spending millions of taxpayers' dollars on a steroid investigation.

If Congress were worth its collective weight in anything useful, we'd all be injecting our steroids in space right now.
