We think that the satalite is a rather large target. They keep saying this thing is the size of a school bus. Yet if you look at the size of the sky this is just a speck of sand on the ocean floor if you really think about it.

"Congrats on your accomplishments in anti-satellite warfare China, nut, we just did it with a missile that was first fielded 6 years ago. Thanks for playing though guys. Oh, did we mention that we can "Babe Ruth" the satellite that we're trying to hit? That's tight bitches, we can shoot parts off with these things, but seriously, congratulations. I'm just sayin'..."
