I hate to say it . . .

But, Putin might have a point.

Asked about the Chinese test at a news conference in New Delhi after a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Putin avoided directly criticizing China, saying only that Russia was against putting any weapons in space.

Instead, Putin chose to issue a warning to the United States on the dangers of the militarization of space.

"At the same time, I would like to note that China was not the first country to conduct such a test," Putin said.

Not that Russia is perfectly innocent, but there is something a little wrong about the US attitude of, "we can have weapons, and we can create weapons, but you try to make your own weapons, we will consider you an aggressor."
