The Pentagon accused Russia of creating a threat to US interests in space

The real threat to US forces deployed in outer space is Russia; Moscow’s actions pose a threat to the commercial and military interests of the United States in outer space. This was stated by Chairman of the Committee of Chiefs of Staff of the American Army, General Joseph Dunford.

The Pentagon accused Russia of creating a threat to US interests in space




Speaking at the non-governmental Council on Foreign Relations, Denford, in particular, accused Russia of creating a real threat to US forces deployed from outer space. According to him, Russia's actions threaten not only the commercial, but also the military interests of the Americans. Also among the opponents of the United States in outer space, besides Russia, are China, which is rapidly developing its space program, as well as Iran and the DPRK, which "have sufficient potential" to create US problems in space.

In the 1990 years, when we deployed significant forces in space, we proceeded from the fact that we did not have rivals in space. Today in space rivalry unfolded

- declared the general.

Earlier it was reported that the United States Space Command was created in the Pentagon structure, which will be responsible for all American programs related to space. Speaking at the official launch ceremony of the Space Command, US President Donald Trump said that space is becoming the next area of ​​warfare, where the United States must provide leadership for many years to come.

    Oh, oh, oh .... Creating a threat to the interests of striped dogs ... Straight right now will pierce a tear.
    Poor things .... and sho now? Do not fly into space?
    It seems that from their point of view, everyone else should only think about how not to infringe on the main manufacturers of cut paper.
    The funny thing is that they are sincerely surprised at what is happening. How it is? We are infringed on exceptional!

      "You are only to blame for the fact that I want to eat!"

      How loud and how often such statements from overseas partners sound. Now, if you analyze a little ... To whom are such speeches addressed?
      - Are you trying to intimidate the townsfolk of countries threatening exclusions (in fact, you should read - competitors)?
      - Give a tip to the left in these states as a topic for undermining and undermining power? Following Krymnenash, slogans should await - "We will give the way to space exclusive by birth, because we still did not come out with a face, and in general, where are we with our top!"
      - Or is it all directed at the electorate within the United States? Is everything really so bad there and people are not able to see the obvious. Or is this obvious hiding very well from others !? If so, then remember that in recent years, astronauts do not fly to the stars on shmYakly and other, buy domestic engines to deliver their satellites. Only Ilon Mask masters the funds and makes at least some movement towards the implementation of the Trampushka decree))) Well, yes, at least in some ways they are ahead of the rest, the first on the moon, the first car in space ...
      NASA, in my opinion, has turned into a banal travel agency with a cosmic bias ... I certainly exaggerate, but I'm afraid that at the moment, all of Mr. Joseph’s sayings are more like powerless air crashing after the receding Russian and Chinese space programs!
      Yes, we, too, are not going smoothly, but there is something to work on and where to strive for)))

      Threat. Do not judge strictly, because on emotions))

    a threat to US forces deployed in space is Russia,
    To begin with, against whom are you deploying forces in space? Or do you want to threaten the whole world without any consequences? Will it not be greasy and the mug will not crack?

      Yes, ours are also good: orbital bombers have been developed since the 1960s, but the projects have not left the design stage. One of the "Diamonds" had a cannon.
      But the announcement, of course, introduces into easy fucking: why should the whole world bend to "US interests in space"? Have they privatized space? Heinlein re-read?

    And before that they shouted that the cosmos is a demilitarized zone, they forgot, and now the peasant blabbed. After all, Russia was accused of all mortal and immortal sins, elections, and the Crimea, creaked rockets. There is nothing more to sew on the earth, but remembered about the cosmos, which has no bottom edges. Now the accusations are enough to infinity without the same edges and bottom. Well, you can’t say anything about this dodgy population.

        In my opinion, it is better to remain silent or say "We believe, we know, it has been proven that we have already been a hundred times." And those who say "were not" await those endless burdens, accusations, sanctions. And even that country will be accused of crucifying Christ.

    Drip-drip in the piggy bank of "arguments" for the cancellation of the treaty on peaceful outer space. To create a background of the crisis on the topic, to fill the brains of people with established stereotypes on the topic, to put forward far-fetched accusations on the topic and, at the extreme, to play a provocation on the topic - voila, under the thrill of righteous anger, a contract in the trash can ... An algorithm that is familiar to a toothache, but difficult to kill under the existing conditions of the domination of the collective West in the world media space.

      If they cancel (or cease to comply in fact), then the khan of civilization. The military will receive carte blanche to destroy other people's objects and Kessler's syndrome will appear in all its glory. And without a satellite, civilization will collapse.
      Perhaps the unsurpassed in terms of the number of objects (but not the most dangerous) space debris emission was carried out by the United States as part of the Westford project. Then, in the polar orbit with an altitude of 3500–3800 km, 480 million thinnest copper dipole wires (17,8 mm long and 17,8 microns thick) were atomized. The idea was to create an artificial environment in space that reflects radio waves for long-distance communications in exchange for an unreliable ionosphere. Astronomers from the British Royal Society opposed the experiment. In the USSR, the Pravda newspaper came out with the headline "The United States Clogs Space." TASS made a statement that "the US military completely ignores the dangerous consequences that may arise for humanity in connection with clogging of the near-Earth space as a result of such experiments." Be that as it may, the project was soon closed. Most of the needles, due to their very small size, have gone out of orbit within 10 years. But even by 2016, 38 lumps of needles were still tracked, which did not separate when ejected, and, being relatively large objects, did not leave orbit.

        Collapse, will not collapse, but it will be difficult to worry. However, if they fall as a result of a conflict of large uncles, then the absence of a satellite will be the most harmless of the consequences.

          Yes, I’m talking about this - so many things are tied to satellites that civilization will collapse.

    So it’s not entirely clear, America that bought from Russia the right to clan the whole cosmos and place weapons directed against Russia there?

    Speaking at the official launch ceremony of the Space Command, US President Donald Trump said that space is becoming the next area of ​​warfare, where the United States must provide leadership for many years to come.

    Again it is not clear is the leadership of the two powers, competition or a real threat to the mattresses and their program to own non-existent?
