#2 The SJ-21 then pulled the BeiDou out of its orbit and placed it a few hundred miles away in a "graveyard orbit"

#3 Why waste 10's of 1000's of High Level Tech hours developing something like a EEC (kh-12+). When you can snare one.

Of course CCP could just start claiming say 200 miles of sky / space over their Nation as theirs and clean it up for a technical / $$$ windfall.
Or license the that sky for a fee.
