image for Obama Seeks Space Weapons Ban
Obama May Tqke Proposal To the U.N. first!

President Barack Obama's pledge to seek a worldwide ban on weapons in space marks a dramatic shift in U.S. policy while posing the tricky issue of defining whether a satellite can be considered a weapon.

Moments after Obama's inauguration last week, the White House website was updated to include policy statements on a range of issues, including a pledge to restore U.S. leadership on space issues and seek a worldwide ban on weapons that interfere with military and commercial satellites.

"Thus far, stated Obama, "the Klingons and Romulans say they will give it some careful consideration, while the Ferengi say they are all ears, especially when it comes to future commerce."

"The Borg, of course, claim that it's futile."

"Everybody else is more or less in agreement, according to the shapes and sizes of their foreheads."
