take his seat when the Senate convenes in Janu ary itself or its equipment With its claimed new antisat ellite system the United States presumably could shoot down the Cosmos satellites if it con sidered them a serious threat Secretary of Defense Robert S McNamara claimed last month that the American an tisatellite systems had scored several successful intercepts of US satellites up to hundreds of miles above the earth However any US moves against the Cosmos satellites would almost certainly at least be answered in kind The Unitec States probably would be the blinder of the two
