I'd like to know which countries want to weaponize space and are against making a "peaceful space treaty".
To make myself clear:
I know more than 100 countries are parties to the Outer Space Treaty, including the US, Russia, China, India, and so on. Even though all of those countries are signed on this treaty, I still see a lot of articles about countries (such as those stated) testing anti satellite missiles (like this), about China wanting to militarize space (and at the same time about China being concerned about the US militarizing space).
This makes things quite unclear to me: Is the interest of those (and other) to weaponize space? Are countries worried other countries will weaponize space so they try to do so themselves (leading to an arms race)?
I'd like to ask as well, to make my point more clear perhaps, which countries will "be upset" if space militarization was prohibited?
