China, India star wars? Beware

Immediately after the successful launch of four satellites by PSLV, China fired an anti-satellite rocket and shot down one of their own ageing satellite to warn the world and of course India that they have the capability to shoot down orbiting spy and recce satellites. This is not a coincidence but precisely timed to warn India.
