Fenenko: missile defense system can cause a false sense of invulnerability among Americans

28
The deployment of the US missile defense system in Europe carries a threat not only to Russia and European countries, but also to the United States itself, while the new arms race may unfold in space, says Alexey Fenenko, leading researcher at the Institute for International Security Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Reports about it RIA News.




Speaking today with an annual address to the Federal Assembly, Vladimir Putin said that the missile defense system deployed by the United States in Europe is dangerous for all countries, because it creates the illusion of invulnerability. According to him, "Russia will not be drawn into an expensive arms race, but at the same time it will reliably and reliably ensure its defense capability in the new conditions."

According to Fenenko, speaking of "the illusion of invulnerability, Putin returns to the development of 80-ies: the missile defense system itself creates the danger of unforeseen situations that increase the risk of military conflict."

“In case of conflict, if it starts, one of the priority goals is, of course, the missile defense system. But the Americans may have the illusion that since the missile defense system is not in the United States, but for example in Eastern Europe, the retaliatory strike of the Russian Federation will be delivered there, and not on American territory, ”explains the expert.

At the same time, Fenenko believes that space can become a new dangerous territory.

"Americans are continuing to research in the field of anti-satellite weapons, and other countries are forced to respond the same. I think Americans are very worried that the Russian GLONASS system, as an alternative to the American GPS, came into effect in 2012 year. There is a serious danger of a new arms race here - precisely the danger of reviving anti-satellite weapons projects, ”he noted.

The expert recalled that Russia had raised in the UN the question of adopting a resolution prohibiting the withdrawal of combat systems into space and the development of anti-satellite weapons. That is, Russia is trying to prevent this threat through diplomacy.

“The main thing we have been doing since 2007 of the year is that we, together with China, are lobbying the Treaty on the prohibition of the launch into space of strike combat systems. At one time, the US State Department gave him a large number of amendments, and Pakistan imposed a veto when considering the Geneva Conference on Disarmament in 2008. Since then, it has been in limbo, ”said Fenenko.

The expert explained that “the current space treaty from 1967 of the year prohibits the launch of weapons of mass destruction into space, i.e. primarily nuclear, but it says nothing about conventional systems — combat lasers or kinetic explosive warheads. ” “All this is developing, it is working - that’s why the Russian Federation and China are trying to limit,” he concluded.

          EPRO is dangerous because fortified missile silos provide for the possibility of installing tactical missiles in them.

        The United States is confident in the invulnerability of its missile defense system according to the results of computer command and staff exercises (KSH), while forgetting the human factor about his majesty: someone clicked with a grocer, there the attic was left open ... And there, someone just didn’t able to perform the task efficiently ...

        So, God forbid, of course, the USA will learn the whole truth about their umbrella only when this umbrella does not save them ...

          In both Russia and the United States, the system automatically decides to retaliate. Nobody clicks bread there and they are not on duty from a hangover. It’s just that they first try to understand the situation during the time the system is fully operational, before launching the missiles, this may be a mistake, because the flight time is from 2 to 5 minutes and there is no time to press the button in the nuclear case.

            Especially for sofa theorists: hangover smnndrom after Valentine's Day 1971
            В Северной Америке есть такое обьединенное командование (США и Кананада) противовоздушной и космической обороны - NORAD. Раз в две недели в этом командовании прокручивался сигнал боевой тревоги, а потом дежурный оператор вещал своим голосом пароль, что сигнал учебный. В 1971 году по графику вещание совпало с утром после праздника Дня святого Валентина. Дежурный оператор сигнал прокрутил и с глукого бодуна забыл добавить парольное слово, что сигнал учебный. После такого "подарка" другие дежурные офицеры в других штабах начали рвать конверты и вещать открытым текстом и дурным голосом, что Амриканский конгресс объявил состояние всеобщей боевой готовности (national emergency). А потом началось: командиры экипажей всякой летающей и водоплавающей техники начали запрашивать штабы - рвать конверты или не рвать и че потом делать? В штабах отвечали рвать, а что делать не знают,поскольку это русский, а не американский вопрос. В общем, паника часа на три. В СССР паники на местах не было, поскольку радиоперехват дело секретное и им тихо занимались части ОСНАЗ ГРУ, КГБ, ВМФ. Что творилось в высоких столичных штабах после получения донесений - дело темное, но команда о повышении боевой готовности поступила минут через 40. Уже тогда подлетное время противника от Японии до Владивостока составляло 5-7 минут.

      I am not special in this, but Russia has always found simple and effective solutions against all these missile defense systems, etc. (I remember it was like that under the USSR ... launch a barrel of nails into space and blow it up ...)))) Now Russia is going to create its orbital station in orbit .. (we can do everything we have ..) And then think for yourself. ! hi

      What do you think that they do not test their missile defense systems during Russian missile launches? You are deeply mistaken. Ours do the same, measure the parameters, catch the signals, try to decipher them and, of course, in the computer version they try to shoot down missiles.

    Starting with the SDI, the United States has been trying to give its country the illusion of invulnerability to imperial ways. It is an illusion, and the current missile defense is the continuation of these dreams.
    One thing to always remember: we were waiting for them from the sea on ships, and they were skiing from the mountains. The world and technology do not stand still and there is always a bolt with a twist on a cunning missile defense.

    Договор о запрещении вывода в космос ударных боевых систем США не подписан. Американские противоракеты научились сбивать боевые блоки ракет в стратосфере, 20 февраля 2008 года крейсер «Лейк Эри» сбил ракетой «Стандард-БМЗ» американский спутник на высоте более 200 километров. В 2008 году американские ракеты- перехватчики могли выбрасывать в космос на встречу атакующим США МБР заатмосферные боевые блоки EKV. Фактически это — космические аппараты-перехватчики, имеющие двигатели для маневрирования и инфракрасную систему наведения на горячие атакующие «головы».Цели для ударов в РФ успешно намечаются. Федерация американских ученых — влиятельная организация, в которую входят 68 нобелевских лауреатов, — в апреле 2009 года предлагает сократить количество ядерных боеголовок, а также перенацелить ракеты с густонаселенных городов на 12 ключевых объектов российской экономики Авторы доклада составили список мишеней на территории РФ, достаточных для эффективного сдерживания. Всего таких объектов 12. Во-первых, это три нефтеперерабатывающих завода — Омский (принадлежит "Газпром- нефти"), Ангарский ("Роснефть") и Киришский ("Сургутнефтегаз"). Во-вторых, важнейшие металлургические предприятия — Магнитогорский, Нижнетагильский и Череповецкий металлургические комбинаты (принадлежат ММК, "Евразу" и "Северстали" соответственно), "Норильский никель", а также принадлежащие "Русалу" Братский и Новокузнецкий алюминиевые заводы. Список мишеней на территории России замыкают Березовская ГРЭС (принадлежит ОГК-4, основным акционером является немецкий E.ON), Среднеуральская ГРЭС (ОГК-5 и итальянская Enel соответственно) и Сургутская ГРЭС (электростанций с таким названием две, ГРЭС-1 принадлежит газпромовской ОГК-2, ГРЭС-2 принадлежит ОГК-4 (E.ON)».
    These objects are selected not only as the most important enterprises of the Russian Federation, but also as targets, the destruction of which can lead to a minimum number of human casualties. However, according to the authors of the report, in the event of the destruction of these facilities, Russia will not only be unable to wage war, as its economy will be paralyzed, but, in addition, a million Russians will inevitably die.

    The calculation of the Americans when deploying a missile defense system in Europe, of course, was based on the fact that in the event of an emergency, Russia will cling to Europe .... and at this time the United States will strike such a blow that completely paralyzes Russia's defense .... but judging by the latest data and Today’s presidential address, which I suppose, is based not on an empty spot, the USA has too many illusions .....

      These Aegis have been given to you. They want to ruin Russia, settle the Maidans of the dissatisfied in the cities, raise extremist Muslims and when Russia loses control of the nuclear shield, attack with massive non-nuclear, high-precision and high-tech weapons and destroy the arms and state control system. And when we are left without electricity, gasoline, gas, oil, without plants, airfields and missiles, they will try to crush us by numerical superiority. They need our clean territories, and not contaminated for thousands of years with radioactivity or other muck.

      Impressive excellence is often the result of excellent suggestion!
      The fact of using Aegis in a BATTLE setting (Iraq 1991) showed that the system was not capable of intercepting anti-ship missiles.
      It’s possible to shoot down Boeing, rockets - no!

    Вспоминаются планы Рейгана по созданию СОИ (Стратегической оборонной инициативы)... Планировалось размещение в космосе спутников с ядерным оружием, с режущими лазерами, спутников - "убийц спутников" и многое другое... По многим пунктам СОИ американцы блефовали, а поверивший в реальность СОИ Советский Союз израсходовал миллиарды долларов на противодействие СОИ, что резко ухудшило финансовое положение советского государства... И немудрено, - невозможно выиграть в гонке вооружений у самой богатой страны мира, - США... Именно поэтому Владимир Путин всегда подчеркивает, что мы не будем втягиваться в гонку вооружений, но найдём адекватный, но более дешевый вариант ответа американским угрозам...

    I believe that this threat does not need to be prevented through diplomatic means. But together with China, it is necessary to develop a promising space combat strike system and launch it. And then you can agree on the deployment of missile defense in Europe. And let the Americans put their missile defense in one place. They only understand the language of power. And the UN is not an organization at all, but a bunch of staff members is simple ... there’s no one to negotiate with, except for a few states.
