Chinese Sohu: Britain is ready to conduct anti-satellite exercises with Typhoon fighters, and the United States has claims against China and Russia

10

The Sohu News Service publishes material that addresses the issue of the dangers of deploying weapons in space and the implementation of anti-satellite projects. weapons... At the same time, the main attention of readers is focused on the next American claims against China and Russia. These claims were recently expressed by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.


According to Blinken, Russia and China "must immediately stop experiments related to anti-satellite weapons." The head of the US foreign policy department said that such experiments contradict the understanding of the peaceful use of outer space.

Blinken also called on China "to reduce the threat posed by its nuclear arsenal, to increase the transparency of accounting for the development of weapons of this type."

An author in a Chinese edition called Blinken's claims against Beijing and Moscow as sheer hypocrisy. According to him, Washington needs to first pay attention to itself and its allies.

From the publication:

The British Air Force is ready to use Typhoon fighters to practice anti-satellite operations. And the United States accuses China and Russia of "anti-satellite experiments", not paying attention to the British exercises and making claims to Beijing and Moscow. So why should Blinken not turn to the Foreign Office and the British Ministry of Defense with claims of this kind?

The author recalls that similar exercises were conducted by the US Air Force themselves, using F-15 fighters with ASM-135 ASAT missiles. It is an anti-satellite missile that the United States used in the 1980s to eliminate the obsolete P78-1 satellite. Sohu also recalled how the United States tested weapons by shooting down the USA-193 satellite, which looked like clear anti-satellite training.

    How can an enemy be called a hypocrite? He's just an enemy, with all that it implies ...

    Washington needs to focus first on itself and its allies.

    That's right, there is no reason to blame the mirror, if the face itself is crooked.

    such experiments contradict the understanding of the peaceful uses of outer space.

    The United States accuses Russia of what it has done for a long time.
    Military communications and surveillance satellites, laser weapons, X-37, anti-satellite missiles ... all of this has long been developed by the United States and applied in practice.
    The US is trying to achieve absolute military superiority over Russia and China ... but it is useless.
    These countries have reached sufficient technological maturity to counter the United States with military developments capable of breaking its monopoly in space.

    They understand mattresses that they will not be able to ensure their monopoly on lawlessness on earth and in space, so they squeal. Correctly, their Chinese clicked on the nose, let them first pull their logs out of their eyes, and only then point at other people's straws)))

    It seems that the United States has problems with anti-satellite weapons, since they are demanding to put everything under "international" control.

      They have problems with the budget (no matter how comical it may sound) for one more direction.
