Joe Biden was on "Fox News Sunday" yesterday talking sense about space war. He was asked about the Chinese satellite-killer test, and chose to inject a dose of sanity into the conversation by reminding viewers that the U.S. has a number of ways to respond to the test without escalating the situation. (Diplomacy, anyone?) He also linked the test to the Administration's new policy regarding the militarization of space.

As for that space policy and its implications, you heard about it here first! We wrote about it , then the WaPo picked it up three days later and it went wide over all the media. (MSNBC News Analyst Jim Oberg argued that media coverage, rather than the policy itself, was creating a new arms race - a charge I answered here .)
Biden's remarks were a rational response to recent events. Score one point for the Senator from Delaware.
