Is It Possible to Ban Weapons in Space?

Hosted by

Russia and China today renewed a proposal the Bush Administration has been opposed to, an international treaty banning weapons in outer space. Is their real concern the land-based missile-defense program devised by Donald Rumsfeld? Can a race to "weaponize" space be avoided or should the US just try to win? Also, the nations leading lenders unite to help the holders of sub-prime mortgages, and while they're voting in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC, the candidates go on to Texas and Wisconsin.
