Tried to find the source for this (or the story on another reputable news agency) but couldn't... interesting reading though.

Obviously the Chinese wouldn't be very happy about the US making noises about another Star Wars program...

...and what if the US pulled out of the 1996 treaty in which nations committed themselves to the peaceful exploration of space?

This is by far the most terrifying of all potential battle grounds as I would say there would little to no escape. Isn't Austrlia also flirting with the star wars idea?
