Pentagon urged to prepare for "space wars" with Russians and Chinese

27
On the Pentagon site appeared message from the head of the so-called Space Command of the US Air Force, John Haiten, in which he states that it is necessary to "counteract the threats posed by the US satellite constellation." According to the representative of the Pentagon, Russia is developing tools for hitting satellites. Allegedly, we are talking about developments in the field of laser weapons.



According to Heiten, in addition to Russia, China is also engaged in such developments today. At the same time, the head of the “space command” notes that similar developments were made in the USSR, in which “they succeeded in creating such weapons in 80's. ”

Heithen writes in his message:
Not in the very distant future they (Russia and China) will be able to use such means. We need to do everything to prevent them from realizing such opportunities. The best way to prevent war is to get ready for it. And we will make everyone know how well we are ready for war (in outer space).

.
According to Haiten, today "the threat to the American orbital grouping is high."

Such statements from the representative of the Pentagon refer to the epoch of the beginning of the implementation of the plans of the so-called "star wars". As you know, then the United States spent tens of billions of dollars announcing the threat posed by the USSR. Today, even more money can be spent, because in addition to Russia, China is called a threat.

      Judging by the age of this uncle, we can conclude that he is a victim of the very first Royal companion! Hearing, as a kid, that a Russian apparatus was flying with impunity over his America and beeping, he put on his pants and burst into tears, John suffered a serious mental injury for life ... laughing

          For a clear comparison, BlackMokona forum users have already posted the number of military satellites from different countries. True, he did not indicate for what year this information was.
          But still it turned out a very remarkable sight!
          The density of US military satellites is such that it seems: if you shoot at them, you won’t miss! And how much does it all cost !!!
          Yeah! The American military is definitely naughty !!!
          However, for Russia and China, such statements by the Pentagon generals are still not an empty phrase! Shoigu already stated this with concern that Russia should prepare for such a war.

    It’s strange. They cry that they are not ready for a war on earth, but then they swung to fight in outer space. It's time to decide.

      It has long been proven that all these laser masers are a dead end branch of development (at least for today).
      similar developments were carried out in the USSR, in which "succeeded in creating such weapons in the 80s
      Well conducted, well done, but it is not known where to stick it, because they are effective only in space, and oh how far before that. Did the Americans forget how many billion they bumped into their last useless Boeing laser? For starters, let people launch into space, and not on Russian engines, and then swing at "star wars". In the meantime, all their strength is only in the Fed's printing press.

    What did he say wrong? In my opinion, everything is on hand. Our General Staff will not hurt to quote again.

    They certainly don’t want to learn from mistakes! I remember when Reagan was already burned at the SDI, having entered a trillion into this useless initiative, having started a public debt, we now decided to round it by a couple of three trillion more !! wink

    According to a Pentagon spokesman, Russia is developing means to destroy satellites.

    Russians slowly harness, but love a fast ride. Once they develop, they will create a meaning, especially since there are others besides laser technologies. Let him read Bismarck slowly and thoughtfully.

    No one could have suggested that by acting on the Reagan Star Wars and ditching the USSR 30 years ago, his (USSR) reaction to this bluff would come in handy in the future.

    If I understand you correctly, a colleague, do cosmic engines object to their revision? Like, we normally fly without it. Secondly, where are the cosmic engines, if

    Yes, the United States, and so no one can compete in space. The USA is the first country to have a full-fledged spaceship, the X-303, and then the BC-304.
    By the way, the Americans gave us one ship of the Daedalus class, we called it Korolev. Alas, they profiled him at the very first skirmish with the Ori.
    And the Americans, meanwhile, are driving through other galaxies like Pegasus (a dwarf galaxy).

    The Soviet Union was able to wage real space wars. Skills are not lost. New technologies make anti-ballistic and anti-satellite defense generally insurmountable.
    You know people called "the father of space wars." But the very concept of "space war" came from overseas. And the PIO - a strategic defense initiative, of which the war in outer space was a part, is always associated with the name of US President Ronald Reagan. Why did you become the “father”?

    Anatoly Savin: The fact is that it was under my leadership that the system of anti-satellite defense was created for the first time in the world. It is impossible to talk about many things today, but I will tell you something.

    Since the beginning of the 1960 in the USA, they have been very active in the militarization of the Cosmos, and this is a historical fact. Although, as it turned out later, the declaration of ambitious intentions and their embodiment into metal is not the same thing. There is a saying: "it was smooth on paper ...". However, we could not ignore the fact that Washington headed for confrontation in near-Earth space. And they also began to work in this direction.

    We managed to develop a unique, even by today's standards, automated complex related to the protection of ours and the destruction, with military necessity, of the satellites of a potential enemy.

    Then it was not advertised for the reason that the USSR would not under any circumstances start the war in Cosmos first. We have developed tools that today belong to the Aerospace Defense. Protect, not attack.

    The first tests began in the 1970 year. Then our interceptor smashed the target into pieces. Directly from the KP, I reported by telephone about the results of the tests to the Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee, D.F. Ustinov and Minister of Defense A.A. Grechko. Then there were new tests and new defeats of target satellites. In 1979, our complex was put on alert. While overseas noisily advertised and tried to create their own PIO, the USSR destroyed up to a dozen target satellites in space. It was then that they began to call me "the father of space wars."

    The United States was only able to hit the target in space in 1985. That is, you are 15 years ahead of them.

    On March 27, 2016, Savin died unfortunately, but his work lives on. So the Americans have something to think about, given the presence of gray matter, of course.
