Victory that led to defeat


The understanding that the United States is rapidly losing credibility in international politics is forcing Washington to seek more and more options for victory that would enhance the credibility of the American army and the United States as a whole. It is clear that the Americans will not openly fight with a strong opponent. The vaunted U.S. Army is not adapted to a large war of the World War II model.




More recently, just a few years ago, in order to show the power of the American army, it was enough to defeat a small, not very developed militarily state or even conduct a short-term military operation to replace the government and as a result get the admiring views of half the world. And the dominance of the dollar, which was the basis of US economic superiority over other countries, significantly helped American presidents.

But time is running out. While Washington experienced "dizziness from success," from "victory over the USSR" and reaped the fruits of this Pyrrhic victory, the world was changing. Those who until recently “were nobody” began to declare their ambitions louder. China, which was laughed at recently, telling jokes about the Chinese army and the Chinese economy, suddenly didn’t just “get into a pose”, but showed its readiness to use sharp “fangs”, which for some reason the Americans had no idea. Powerful India and Brazil appeared.

However, the biggest surprise for the United States was Russia. Russia, which not only showed a “grin”, but applied the “teeth” in practice. Moreover, not in the format of the US ally, not in the format of one of the members of the American coalition, but rather in the format of an independent player who plays his own game.

The war in Syria has shown the world that the vaunted American army is actually quite equipped and armed, but it is not as powerful as the Pentagon says. The power of american aviation, Air defense, American weapons in general, not to mention ground units and subunits, turned out to be zilch. American planes were frankly afraid of the Russians, and ground units did not meddle in areas where Russian specialists worked. Russia in Syria has shown that we are equal, we are no worse than the Americans.

It must be admitted that the Pentagon tried to revive the myth of its own power in other regions of the planet. He tried to play the scenario of "lightning war" in the DPRK. But in this case, received the completely opposite result. Huge fleet, aviation, nuclear weapons and other horror stories of Americans did not frighten North Koreans.

It turned out that the small, impoverished and “destroyed by international sanctions” North Korea is not only ready to die for its own land, but also ready to destroy the “great” Americans along with their allies. The Korean "cat" showed the world that it is, although small, but a "tiger". Koreans showed fortitude that made Americans uncomfortable. And the US was frankly scared ...

"Cartoons", from which throws into a sweat


World media do not leave the topic of drone attacks on a Saudi oil refinery. Moreover, it is interesting that almost no one is interested in the financial losses of Saudi Arabia, however, as well as human losses. Journalists write about weapons. The fact that the American air defense system was powerless against fairly simple strike drones. The Arabs, probably for the first time, realized that the ability to defend themselves does not depend on the cost of air defense systems.

Such an understanding, especially against the backdrop of numerous reflected drone attacks on the Khmeimim military base and port in Tartus, is worth a lot. It is no coincidence that at the UN session, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia on the very first day. The conversation was not "for life", but specifically about the state visit of President Putin to this kingdom.

Remember how it all began? With an open threat to Russians from the West in general and the United States in particular. "We will drag you into the arms race and you will follow the path of the USSR, having lost everything in the struggle with the whole world." And these threats were very real. Only now Russia answered in its own way. Quite unexpectedly, if you like. The Russians showed ... cartoons. Cartoons about weapons, which simply can not be!

How many malicious articles then were in the world press. How many experts talked about the fact that this cannot be, because this can never happen. And it all ended with the fact that the media published reports about successful tests of a hypersonic missile ... Then about the next tests. And the following. The world press shut up right away ...

Trump meets Putin


So, Russia has responded to the threats of the West. The answer practically nullified the many years of US efforts to neutralize Russian strategic missiles and organize the defense of their own state. It's no secret that Americans are panicky afraid of war on their own territory. They are used to the fact that world wars, and indeed wars in general, always go somewhere far away. In Europe, in Oceania, in Africa, but not on the American continent.

American scientists began developing systems similar to Russian ones. The headquarters of the American army are developing options for a possible response to the actions of the Russian army. In general, work is ongoing. But time! This is probably the first time the United States has been caught up. Now it is necessary to develop not weapons of attack, but weapons of defense. It is necessary to neutralize the Russians. And time trouble always costs a lot! Russia not only repulsed the blow, it itself attacked.

President Trump did not invent a bicycle. He simply decided to repeat the bluff successfully applied by President Ronald Reagan against the USSR in 1985. Probably, many remember the famous "Star Wars", the SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative) program. It was then, in the framework of the SDI, that President Reagan created the Space Command of the US Armed Forces. In principle, the creation of such an organ was then logically justified. There are SOI, there are those who must command. It is clear that after the "death" of the SDI in 2002, the command disappeared as an independent unit.

What do we see today? About the same bluff, only in the performance of Trump. On August 29 of this year, the American president solemnly announced the creation of a new structure in the US Army - the United States Space Command.

“The mission of the US space command is to restrain aggression and conflict, protect the freedom of action of the United States and its allies, provide space combat power for the combined forces and develop joint military fighters to advance the interests of the United States and allies in the space field, from and through it.” .


If we discard beautiful words, in the bottom line we see just one of the 11 commands in the Pentagon structure, which, unlike the others, controls not a certain territory, such as, for example, the African or European command, but the sky. Simply put, everything that flies above 100 kilometers from the surface of the earth.

It is not clear, however, how the new command will coexist and already exist as part of the US Air Force (Air Force Space Command). Today, it is the space command of the Air Force that is engaged in "military space." And in terms of numbers (data from open sources) the command is not from small, 25 thousand people.

The new command will constantly grow numerically. If today most of them will be transferred to the Air Force officers (151 people), the army (24 people), fleet (14 people) and other structures and the total number of command is estimated at about 200 people, then within five years the total number should reach 15-20 thousand people. It is planned to include educational institutions, missile defense specialists, training ranges, experimental squadrons, satellite control groups and more in the United States Space Command.

You can talk as much as you like about the military budget’s dribbling, about the growth of the US military bureaucracy, but we must admit that the planned actions speak about the creation in the United States of a new, independent type of armed forces - space forces. More precisely, space forces, according to the American tradition (Space Force).

Thus, the American army will have 6 types of aircraft: the army, air force, navy, marines, coast guard and space forces. By the way, according to US media reports, negotiations on creating a new type of armed forces have long been in the US Congress and are close to completion. The consent of the Congress is practically obtained.

Why do we need the United States Space Command


Washington is well aware that the military dominance of the US military is ending. Today, the United States is in the same position as the USSR in the last years of its existence. "Friends", who recently looked into the eyes of the American president and readily loyal dogs rushed to execute any order from Washington, today are increasingly looking in the direction of a potential enemy. Flock animals always strive to be in a strong flock.

To achieve military dominance, which was to date, the United States in the short term today is unable. An understanding of this fact led to the emergence in the headquarters of the US Army of a new concept of warfare - multilateral war. The war, according to this concept, will now be fought not only on land, on water (under water) and in the air, but also in space. Even on other planets, if necessary. Hence the US desire to develop military space. The desire to establish the dominance of American weapons in space.

Like any command of the US Army, the Space Command will primarily develop a new doctrine of the use of spacecraft for "active defense". Next, active development of military satellites for various purposes will begin - from attacking to fighter satellites of alien spacecraft. Probably, special space stations, space platforms for combating ground-based objects will also be developed. In general, military space can be developed in almost all directions.

Today we can say that in this situation, the United States is quite capable of creating space forces, even despite huge costs. And the attitude of Americans towards various treaties and other agreements is already well known to everyone. At present, only we can confront the Americans in space.

New arms race?

    On August 29 this year, the American president solemnly announced the creation of a new structure in the US Army - the United States Space Command.

    The obvious development of the armed forces. Similar commands in the near future will be created in a dozen countries.
    Rather, the question arises of the appropriateness of the transfer of the Russian Air Force to the Air Forces, rather than the creation of a separate type of military forces, deeply integrated into the Air Force, but still independent.

      Money, resources (which we ourselves sell to the West), scientific potential - the USA is abundant. So the hegemon will only grow fat and become stronger.
      If you get a military answer, why there is no economic answer.

    If the United States gets a cheap payload output into orbit, space weapons will develop at a tremendous pace. Just as victory on earth is impossible without dominance in the air, victory will be impossible without dominance in outer space.

    No, nuclear weapons will still be effective for quite some time, but at a certain stage, delivery vehicles on land and under water will become too vulnerable. This will make the deployment of strategic weapons in space inevitable.

    We have (sort of like) a serious advantage - the 1 MW space nuclear power plant, which allows us to create ships for deep space. But the second element of the space confrontation should be a reusable heavy / superheavy rocket, similar to the type being developed in the USA by BFR, on methane or three-component (hydrogen + methane + oxygen) engines. Having these two instruments of US dominance in space, you can not be afraid.

        A little or a lot - let's see, it does not take long to wait. The deployment of global satellite Internet networks is planned in the first half of the 20's, in the same period two competitors will appear - BFR and New Glenn, which can change the balance of power.

      A nuclear installation as an engine is effective (theoretically, since it didn’t fly in practice) only on long-distance routes, and the entire militarization of outer space is NOO or, to the maximum, geostationary orbit.

      Therefore, it is with reference to the military use of outer space that it is necessary to improve the technologies that are or are being developed in the United States, but Russia does not have such
      1) cheap output to the DOE light payload. Hundreds of kg, warhead. Something like Electron
      2) cheap withdrawal to the IEO of a relatively heavy load, not just warheads, but battle stations. Something like SpaceX
      3) launching into an operatively set orbit or changing the orbit of a previously launched satellite. The hardest thing with this. Then an air start could help.

      And so, there were plans to build a missile base on the Moon. In the 1970s, it seems, years.

    Tear the United States. This is another bluff, you can’t do anything special with fighter satellites. Now there are no technologies capable of creating an apparatus that quickly changes orbits, has weapons working in space and is capable of a mission of at least some duration. The cost of a manned similar vehicle will be truly space.

      The US has not yet thoroughly disclosed its plans. We also created a videoconferencing system, this does not mean that we will immediately tear the navel on this topic. Big begins with small.

      Q about technology - nothing "beyond" is required. Remember the Boeing X-37 - it is designed to operate at altitudes of 200-750 km, is able to quickly change orbits and maneuver. During the fourth flight, it was in orbit for 718 days.

        Fits in. Boeing has built either two or three such things, but their index is "X". The cost of the program is unknown, so it is difficult to predict the cost of deployment as a weapon system. And if it turns out to be comparable in price with, for example, an aircraft carrier fleet or an SSBN fleet, then the budget may not be able to pull. Especially if there is another financial tsunami with the bursting of bubbles and other delights.

          what are few examples of cheaper? 30 years ago, the processor was like an apartment, but now? In general, it was as if at that moment when the Americans had advanced so much with the cheapening of launches into orbit, saying that they couldn’t just be ridiculous.

        Satellites also fly and for a long time. He obviously does not change his orbits too quickly, which would have made the Yankees alarmed about our satellite instectors. Our truth is also not very smart.
        Just orbital mechanics is such a thing ... as if to say, predictable or something ... Orbits are calculated in a couple of minutes or hours of tracking an object and quite accurately. But to change the orbit, you need quite complex maneuvers and a decent supply of fuel.
        and rockets in his cargo compartment is not difficult to push

        Well, yes ... it's hard to push them out of there. More precisely, it’s not difficult, but they will not fly where they should be. And to be where it is needed, here difficulties arise with orbits.

            Sure? And the atmosphere can lean your wings against the air. In which case, you can try to land with a very non-zero chance of survival. There is no support in space, and your life is measured by the amount of fuel and oxygen on board. Provided that the remaining life support systems are operational. If one of them ends, your departure to another world will be one hundred percent and very ... unpleasant.

            Well, firstly, not impossible, I did not say that. Secondly, in order to lower it whole and with live astronauts, and wherever you need to, you need to calculate the duration of the engines with second accuracy. The range of angles of safe entry into the atmosphere is not so large. Less speed, more angle - there will be a ballistic descent, more speed, less angle - will jump out of the atmosphere.

    Another drank budget, however.

    Satellites make sense only as a means of navigation, communication and reconnaissance, and also as one of the duplicating elements of a nuclear missile warning system.

    After the start of the MRNE exchange in a local or global conflict, all types of radio emissions in the atmosphere will be blocked by clouds of ionized air from nuclear explosions and communication with satellites will disappear from a week to a month. Plus, high-altitude explosions of a megaton class numbering no more than a hundred will burn the electronics of satellites in all orbits.

    In addition, as demonstrated by the SDI program, the only workable space strike weapon is a laser weapon, but which only acts against missiles that are carriers of warheads. After the BB is separated from the last stages of the missiles, the laser weapon also becomes inoperative due to the practically zero signature of the BB in the entire spectrum of electromagnetic radiation.

    But in the case of an increase in the specific thrust of rocket engines, the entire active section of their trajectory, up to the separation of the BB, passes inside the atmosphere, which protects them from laser radiation, plus the emission of a shielding aerosol through the head fairing of the rockets. Therefore, laser weapons also have no prospects of dealing with ballistic missiles, not to mention cruise missiles.

    So you can only wish SOI-2 to actively absorb the resources of a potential adversary bully

      Well, yes, then 5 cm balls in orbit are detected, otherwise the blocks will not be detected? How then does the ground level SPRN work?

      In addition to detecting attacks of ballistic missiles, their tracking and targeting of antimissiles, the Don-2Н station is involved in the missile attack warning system. At a viewing angle of 360 degrees, detection of warheads of ICBMs at a distance of 3700 km is possible. It is possible to control the outer space at a distance (altitude) to 40 000 km. In terms of a number of parameters, the Don-2Н radar still remains unsurpassed. In February 1994 of the year during the ODERACS program from the American Shuttle in February 1994 of the year 6 metal balls were thrown into open space, two in diameter 5, 10 and 15 centimeters. They were in terrestrial orbit from 6 to 13 months, after which they burned down in dense layers of the atmosphere. The purpose of this program was to ascertain the possibilities for detecting small-sized space objects, calibrating radar and optical devices in order to track "space debris". Only the Russian station Don-2H was able to detect and construct the trajectories of the smallest objects with a diameter of 5 cm at a distance of 500 — 800 km with a target height of 352 km. After detection, their tracking was carried out at a distance of up to 1500 km.

      And so, no matter how low the BR flies along a gentle path, most likely, it will still be higher than 80 km. There is almost no atmosphere there, at least from the point of view of scattering of the LO beam, the highest clouds - silver-blue (hence another name - "silver clouds") are formed in the atmosphere at an altitude of more than 80 km, they are seven times higher than the highest cirrus the clouds.

      But I would not consider LO as a remedy against BR. Rather, it could be something like an orbital platform with missile defense. From above it is easier for them to gain speed, blocks can be detected at a greater distance. The ICBMs themselves will be preliminarily detected, according to their trajectory, a conditional trajectory (the same BR) can be predicted, and then clarified using radar and other sensors. You can also use lidars.

        Quickly withdraw backup. They can be deliberately deployed to SSBNs for readiness for launch.

        And the point is that ionized air blocks the passage of any radio waves in the atmosphere for a long time.

        5 cm balls in orbit are detected, otherwise the blocks will not be detected? How then does the ground level SPRN work?

        No way - if you use a cover for the BB that is inflated with nitrogen at the temperature of the evaporation point (to block the thermal radiation of the BB), a completely black surface made of carbon nanotubes (Vantablack material with a solar reflectance below 0,036%) and metamaterial on the cover surface (with a negative angle radar reflection). All together are several orders of magnitude cheaper than SDI.

        PR By the way, the EPR of existing BBs coated with a polymer with ferrite particles in the centimeter / decimeter range of radio waves exactly corresponds to the EPR of the 5-cm ball.

    The Americans have pushed and continue the concept of a global disarming strike. The real threat to them is the nuclear stockpile on good old ballistic missiles. Against cartoons, they have a great working Hollywood. Captain America, in terms of its speed and permissible overloads, will quite cope with Putin's "Circus-ON". In order for new types of weapons to pose any kind of threat, it is necessary that they be mass-produced and kept on the base in "commercial" quantities. Using modern digital design methods, it is not at all difficult to invent any "analog-shit wunderwolf". With a small handful of billions of petrodollars, you can even put together a working prototype on your knee. But in order to mass-produce high-tech items, you need to have high-tech production. If you look around, it is not at all difficult to notice that there are simply no advanced high-tech products in Russia. Computers, other electronics, cars, airplanes, medical equipment, precision mechanics, high-tech materials - all of this is either imported or models of the previous generation assembled in Russia from imported materials. And in order to produce weapons superior in performance to Western counterparts, you need to have all this.
    So Putin cartoons are more likely to pose a threat to Russia, since they are just an ideal scheme of theft from the budget, where all expenses are classified and not one "agent of the State Department" will get to the bottom, it is not Rosguard's turnips to sell.

    Mask’s super-draft project is developing so fast that sometimes it really seems like it's some kind of pyramid, and nothing will come out.
    According to Mask, a trial launch of a full-sized starship will take place “in about a month”.

    But if he succeeds in everything that is planned, it will be a breakthrough in space exploration.

    You know, I don’t understand one thing.
    The author broadcasts with aplomb, as from a high rostrum.
    Why is it that Russia responds, wins something and the like?
    Only we can confront the Americans - are you serious?
    Who is this article for?
    From the general chaos of information, I can draw the following conclusion - somehow the powers of our country sideways.
    It is worth reading the original news of the Western media.

      It’s just that in the world in general there are few countries with a position, it’s the USA, and we are with the Chinese ... Can’t you say anything about the position of Germany or Britain .... Not to mention others

    China is entering space very quickly and actively.
    State-owned company and two private launch satellites. And the lunar rover, and its GPS, and the fifth
    generation of mobile communications.
    The inevitable exit of China and the military race in space.
    The Americans are just looking forward.

    So you have to start it! Explain to citizens that there will be no pensions (oblige children to support their parents), the accumulated funds will be used to develop the space fleet. To allocate 50% of the budget to the defense industry and special services, another 20 - to maintain the color of the nation - the apparatus of officials.
    Citizens are encouraged to show patriotism and live on the remaining 30%. “Refuseniks” should be sent to the newly launched system of labor camps and, when they are created, attract highly effective specialists from North Korea. Introduce exit visas for citizens of the Russian Federation, nationalize owned housing (with the exception of those who have distinguished themselves, including government officials).
    Many more useful and difficult decisions will need to be made, but rallying around the leader and the most worthy people in his environment, this race must definitely win.
    To explain this important and honorable mission to the people, attract a group of writers and political scientists led by A. Prokhanov.

      after such a clowning, the country will just turn into North Korea with a budget of 10 lards, the population will hoarse and the Chinese will not even have to strain, they will take whatever they want.

        But on this "the best people of the country" will be able to multiply their welfare, plus everyone who’s dissatisfied will have their mouths shut completely)
