The US is preparing for "star wars"

25
Washington is increasing funding for military space programs, although it does not want star wars. This was stated by national security adviser Herbert McMaster at a meeting of the US National Space Council.


Space along with land, sea and air becomes the scene of hostilities. Although we would not want conflicts to spread to outer space, the United States will be ready in case this happens.
- pointed out MacMaster.

The US is preparing for "star wars"


The adviser noted that at present, the activities of Washington’s opponents in near-Earth space are becoming more active, without clarifying exactly who he has in mind.

McMaster also indicated that the draft budget for the 2019 fiscal year provides for an increase in spending on space programs by more than a billion dollars. In the next five years, they need to increase by another eight billion, he added.

Earlier in February, the New American Security Center announced that the US military was not ready to repel existing threats from Moscow and Beijing.

In late January, the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, said that Washington intends to spend billions of dollars on preparations for a war in space with Russia and China.

Our competitive advantages in all areas of warfare - in the air, on land and sea, in space and cyberspace - are lost
- noted the Minister of Defense, reports "Lenta.ru"

    "They are striding widely ..." - it would be necessary to unscrew the lock nut ...

        Maybe he meant the Martians?

        there is very little in common.
        during the Reagan there were provocations with the aim of exhausting and forcing you to waste your energy
        and now - work on the development of another monopoly niche

      Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), also known as Star Wars, is a long-term research and development program announced by US President Ronald Reagan on March 23, 1983. The main goal of the SDI was to create a scientific and technical reserve for the development of a large-scale missile defense system (ABM) with space-based elements that excludes or limits the possible destruction of ground and sea targets from space "

    provides for an increase in spending on space programs by more than a billion dollars ... the next five years, they need to increase by another eight billion
    The other day, on one of the political talk shows, the notorious Greg Weiner seriously claimed on this issue that it was Trump’s "cunning plan" - to draw Russia into the arms race and end it as the USSR. And as they didn’t try to prove to him that the United States was increasing spending, it was not Russia that he stubbornly remained with his opinion.

They put striped ones as an example, but in fact that ours, that they are one figs ... the system is also designed for capital extraction in ANY way. They steal there, steal here, steal everywhere.

    Past “star wars” under Reagan ended in a successful general’s battle for the stars in uniform.

    "Although we would not want conflicts to spread to outer space, the United States will be ready in case it does happen."
    - pointed out MacMaster.

    Grand Pipister bluntly states that the country is ready to spread conflicts to outer space.
    Maybe, in connection with these "perls", to suspend the delivery of taxiways? I am sure the sacramental will follow: "He was misunderstood!"
    Politics and business - everything is predictable
