Light wars: space-based lasers among Beijing’s hi-tech arms
Chattering Teeth News - Initial reports of plans for a Chinese Space-based "Laser" may have been the result of a language barrier between Washington and Beijing officials, this CTN reporter has learned made up.
I was horrified when I read the initial reports about the Chinese military developing powerful lasers, electromagnetic railguns and high-power microwave weapons for use in a future “light war” involving space-based attacks on satellites.
I decided to get to the bottom of it. I don't mean to brag, but we here at Chattering Teeth News are on the cutting edge of breaking news and gossip - staying ahead of the curve with random google searches and a talkative inebriated homeless man and a hooker I keep on retainer.

Me: I have no clue what you are saying, so let me get right to the point. What about these Chinese space lasers I keep reading about?
Li: Space Rasahs?

Li: Yu sum kine of dum gai? Is sum ting wong wit yu?
Me: Huh? Wait! I think I've deciphered this code you're using. You're saying the Chinese are upgrading their current fleet of space-based straight razors with the new electric solar powered Men's KEMEI 5D "Razor" with nose trimmers? That the 5-ton Razor will be stationed in low-earth orbit in order to give the Chinese cosmonauts the absolute closest shave possible?
Li: Yu Got Tai Ni Po Ni!
Me: Thank you, sir... I think. Thank you for your clarification on this, and I thank you from a grateful nation.
