Shooting a satellite out of the sky is an abysmally bad idea. It creates huge clouds of space debris which could endanger countless other satellites.

Bacon!

A missile would cause tons of space debris which would add to the already dangerous amount in orbit.

Hmm.. what is better, one big lump going down and might hit something?

OR

Hundreds of tiny high-speed projectiles raining down on some area?

Yes, and China has already done this. +50,000 pieces of <10mm in size = space shotgun shell.

Negative Ghostrider, the pattern is full.

If the Army and the Navy ever look on Heaven’s scenes; they will find the streets are guarded by the United States Marines.

We should just play Nuclear Missile roulette. Send one of those huge long range missile up into orbit and let it fly around the Earth until it runs out of gas, wherever it lands, sucks to be them ^^

I don't know what would happen in this case, but they might end up light enough and as a result, fall slowly enough to avoid burning up.

When asking for help: state the goal, not the step.
