The Pentagon believes that Russian and Chinese space programs pose a threat to the United States, according to an article in the pages of the Washington Post.




"Representatives of the Pentagon say that Russia and China are developing opportunities for an attack on the United States in space, while the States are mired in counter-terrorism operations in Iraq and Afghanistan," the article quotes. RIA News.

According to the military, "Russia, China and other countries are developing a technology that could damage the national security infrastructure created by the United States in space."

Especially in the Pentagon are worried about their satellites.

“We must recognize that, despite our efforts, in the future the conflict may begin or expand in space”,
said Cecil Heine, head of strategic command.

Earlier, Assistant Secretary of State Frank Rose said that he was “concerned about the ongoing development of anti-satellite weapons Russia and China. "

Recall that at the end of 2015, Moscow proposed a draft resolution for UN consideration regarding the non-deployment of weapons in space, but the document was blocked by the US delegation.

    Still keep thinking straightforward laughing No need to fight in the United States, you need to destroy it economically. What are Russia and China going to? I would like to see the collapse of the United States, but this is a delicate matter, the main thing is not to harm yourself.

      Something the United States began to "squeal" about the Russian threat louder than the Baltic states and Poland ... They are going to develop another SDI (or rather to knock money out of the "allies")! We went through this already in the days of the USSR!

        By proposing this draft resolution, Russia secured itself in the matter of placing weapons in space. Now all the poking in our direction with our finger, we can fend off the American face about the table, that is, in their blocking at the UN, of this document.

          We all understand that neither Russia nor China is going to attack the United States in the coming years.

          In fact, the opposite is true - both China and Russia are trying to protect themselves and prevent aggression in their direction - the United States and its Western and Japanese allies are still the strongest side. And it looks like there will be more 15.

          The aggressors here they are - and China and Russia just want them not to be touched. Until

          In the future, the situation may change - if the Eurasian Union gains economic power and supports China - and China, in turn, outgrows the USA and the West - then of course - in the future, Russia and China may begin to put pressure on the USA and the West

        And why are they so worried? They will shoot another film in Hollywood about how they defeated us and calm down. They can’t get used to it - they walked on the Moon and were the first to fly into space. But Squirrel and Strelka generally barked in English. laughing

      "The United States is worried about the ongoing development of anti-satellite weapons in Russia and China ...", this is already chronic for them, the United States is constantly worried about something, worried or alarmed, and under this pretext they simply knock money out of the budget for their beloved military-industrial complex.

        Exactly. "Nothing personal - just loot." The military-industrial complex of the states has become crowded on the earth's ball, so they came up with a horror story in order to knock out a not sickly share of the budget for fiction.

    "..in spite of our efforts, in the future the conflict may start or expand in space",
    said the head of strategic command Cecil Haney. "

    What kind of effort does he have? The probability of voiced for half a century already exists.

    What goes around comes around. States should forget about their exclusivity. They are not the only country on the planet, and other countries also have their own interests, and we must reckon with them. Peace on Earth is possible not at the expense of someone's exclusivity, but only at the expense of a compromise of interests.

    Another knocking out of money for "Star Wars-2". The Pentagon officials do not differ in a variety of excuses for increasing the military budget.
    At the same time as their phobias, they reveal their weaknesses. Now they are afraid for transoceanic Internet cables, now they are trembling for their satellites. Yeah, without these toys you just have to fight in a powerless tantrum.
    Oh, and it's hard to be a "hegemon". wassat

    Yes, space is nonsense, a passed stage. What will you sing when you learn about our, naturally, together with China, successful development of deep underground weapons? Our "Metrostroy" is already digging a tunnel under the Pacific Ocean into California. Urgently ask for money for the counter-tunnel operation, even though you will deal with the real business and not some kind of counter-terrorist operation in Iraq and Afghanistan. Good luck!

    It’s bad that now Russia does not have single-stage aerospace aircraft, such as the Tu 2000, M 19 and Mig 2000, now they would be very useful for cooling individuals with military rhetoric in the United States.

    Again, the bad way of the "exceptional" judges others by themselves. No one doubts that the mattress toppers would not hesitate for a second and hit if they were sure of their impunity. But we have nothing else to do (and the Chinese, too), except to sharpen our teeth on their native Washington region - there seem to be enough of our own problems ...
    Just another contrived reason to increase funding for its defense industry-manger.

    Hello mom, have you left the money or are the Russians coming, and even with the Chinese?
    The ability to beg for money for the defense industry, and with kickbacks at the same time, we still have to study and study. Even Serdyukov, what did he do? 10 million stolen? So at the same time he began the modernization of the army, not without jambs but he began.
    Look at the pilot who nearly drowned his aircraft carrier, and then sat in captivity, which saved another aircraft carrier (well, if one). And now lobbying for everything they pay. National hero almost.

    Yeah, the US everywhere sees a threat to its national security. In fact - their interests. Of course, why do they need opponents? Without opponents, it’s somehow better and easier to live. Whether it will still be, the USA, or it will still be ... I feel sorry for ordinary people. They then all these imperial ambitions of their own country to a damn, well, except maybe some. Ordinary people need peace. But for governments - no. So the United States, as always, is in its repertoire. As they say, they didn’t hear anything new.

    I’ll recover my personal money. Someone will saw off more. We have no exception, but I think that on a smaller scale. They have everything in bucks and we have in rubles. Space prospects. For the good of the people (the concept includes people and their family), it can work long.

    Salute 2.1a carries 5.9 tons into orbit. The satellites Lomonosov and Aist-2D weigh 1200 kg. The remaining 4.5 tons, and judging by the secrecy of our military, fly over the states and this is good news. And let this "superpower" have constant headaches with incontinence)

    Everything is elementary. Back in 2008, Russia and China proposed that the United States conclude an agreement on the non-deployment of weapons in space. However, military space is a business in which a lot of money is spinning. American corporations are interested in ensuring that these programs are not curtailed and not limited.

    And then why complain? Americans want to be strong everywhere, we, because of problems
    with the economy, we can’t afford it. But in order to inflict irreparable damage to the enemy, it is enough to be strong in certain things, which will sober up the possible enemy.
