US Space Force General: In the struggle between America and China for space, Australia will become a "pot of gold"

In the struggle between America and China for space, Australia will become a "pot of gold". And while Beijing is rapidly developing its space technology in an effort to "catch up and overtake" the Americans, the United States also has a strong trump card against it.

This opinion was expressed during her visit to Canberra by General Nina Armagno, Chief of Staff of the US Space Forces, in an interview for the American agency Bloomberg.

She said that Australia's strategic capabilities, combined with its geographic location, make it a real "pot of gold at the end of the rainbow", facilitating US-Australia cooperation in defense space technology.

Since Australia is located in the southern hemisphere, everything that is in Earth's orbit can be easily controlled from its territory: from space debris to satellites.

This is the best country for space awareness

says Armano.

Deputy Commander of the US Space Forces, General John Shaw, who was with her on a visit to Australia, said in his speech at the local Strategic Policy Institute that regular monitoring of space around the Earth requires a concerted effort between the two countries.

Against the background of a noticeable increase in Beijing's influence in the Asia-Pacific region, Canberra and Washington have significantly expanded cooperation in the defense sphere. Last year, these countries, together with Britain, created the military-political alliance AUKUS.

The "pot of gold" mentioned by the general refers to Irish folklore. The mythical character leprechaun hides his treasure "at the end of the rainbow".

    And here the blueness is present, the rainbow in the USA will be outlawed soon if it goes like this. They will acquire a blue color, a shade of blue.

    Australia will become a "pot of gold"
    For a long time, they were looking for something for this "pot", probably under the bed. And before that, Australia was in a different place, or only now did they understand its favorable geographical position? Although, probably, during official visits, one cannot do without flattery.

    Here is an empty pot, it is a simple object, it will not go anywhere! - VP.
    You might think that the Chinese are so stupid that they do not know where the tracking and control centers are located in Australia.
    But of course you can dream for this money is not taken.

    Like a solid space general. And such an impenetrable dumbass. Does he even know that the earth is round? Whose satellites will Australia control there?

      Australocentrism - to consider the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth as something unique just because Australia is located there :).

    In the photo, has the general already been demoted to sergeant for the ambiguous mention of a pot? bully

    Fight, fight, and more fight.
    Interestingly, the thought of cooperation with mutual interest ever comes to striped-eared heads?
    It's time for them to ban rugby as an indispensable attribute of the upbringing of stupid booters / wrestlers.

    This is a female general, or rather the United States Space Force lieutenant general, with all the flows and consequences

      There is something to "go" to, only, however, in white (as in the well-known joke about the circus) no one will remain.
