The Chinese command is guided by the concept: "Who controls space - controls the Earth" - from a report in the United States
They test anti-satellite missiles and leave a mass of dangerous debris in orbit. They use cybernetic weapon on earth, then to subdue the sky with it. They see their goal in the development and implementation of high-tech means of delivering military strikes from orbital positions. They see space as a future war zone and want to establish their strategic advantage there. And they are all Chinese "militarists". Such conclusions were made in a fresh report of the US Air Force analysts, which were diligently retold by the journalists of The Washington Times.
The experts' report is based on an overview of the activities of the Chinese National Institute of Aerospace Research, partially (according to the American side) integrated into aviation and space programs. In parallel with the development of missile weapons in the PRC, the corresponding cybernetic resources are being improved, designed to ensure the uninterrupted and efficient operation of all elements of the system, be it command centers, defensive echelons or attacking echelons.
What else has China been guilty of - in addition to testing a satellite destroyer rocket, which allegedly left about three and a half thousand fragments in orbit? Now the debris of the meteorological probe will revolve around the Earth for years, posing a danger to the operation of other objects, although this is far from the only "garbage" left by the Chinese conquerors of airless space. However, the main concern should be caused not so much by the actions being taken today - as by China's intentions and ambitions to achieve a leading position in space.
Reporters from the US Air Force believe that the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) is forming units capable of purposefully seizing strategic bridgeheads in a conflict according to a "space" scenario. Weaken the enemy and block his access to orbit: the main functions of reconnaissance, observation and communication systems are subordinated to this general task.
According to the authors of the report, the Chinese command is guided by the concept "Who controls space - controls the Earth." Whether under this slogan is meant a specific program of China for the exploration of the moon, American analysts did not specify. But they made a prediction with confidence: China will try more and more actively to show its military space potential and to show its ambitions to conquer leadership in space. It is possible that for the sake of this, Beijing will risk going to acts of demonstration of force far beyond its borders.
