I call B.S. on the Chinese!  Do they really think we're that stupid 
(fearless leader notwithstanding!)?  This is just a way of trying to 
mitigate criticism about developing space based weaponry.  What 
supposedly "works" on junk would work on an operational bird as well.

And which would you rather have to dodge?  One big piece of easily 
trackable junk or the likely thousands of pieces of still hazardous 
detritus that would be created and possibly pushed into an even 
higher orbit by their laser?
