For getting rid of war satellites like the ones that the news said Iran is sending up.

       Would be very useful if Iran were putting its war satellites at the right Lagrange Point. Otherwise, not so much.

       Some hint of a method might be nice.

       Sending something crashing into the sun is a lot harder than it sounds. You need a large gravity well you can place in the right spot to ensure its demise. Or a ray thingie.   

       By far the best and most economical way to “getting rid of war satellites” is to burn them up right here on earth on their launch pads. I understand your reticence to starting a global conflict by avoiding a terribly dirty battle right here on earth by removing the conflict somewhere far away, but the consequences would be the same eventually.   

       Maybe a Stealth Satellite Blinder?

       Orbital laser broom. I happen to have one (linky).
