The United States remains the undisputed dominant power in space, but Russia and China are aggressively seeking to challenge the country’s superiority with space programmes of their own.James Clapper, the US director of national intelligence, stressed his concerns as he accused Russia and China of “developing capabilities” to take out American satellites.
He said China in particular, had demonstrated the “need to interfere with, damage, and destroy” US satellites, referring to a series of Chinese anti-satellite missile tests that began in 2007. Continue reading

The incident began when five small fast boats, believed to be manned by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy approached the cargo vessel just off the coast of the United Arab Emirates but in international water, the official said.
The Iranian boats fired across the bow, and at that point the cargo vessel turned and escaped by entering into UAE territorial waters, according to initial U.S. military reports of the incident. The UAE sent three of its coast guard boats out to the cargo vessel.
The incident began with the Iranians ordering the ship into Iranian waters. When the ships master refused, the Iranians began to fire in a way to try to disable the ship, not just as warning shots, the U.S. official said.
Several shots hit the cargo ship, but did not disable it. The ship went into UAE waters and the Iranians followed it into those territorial waters, continuing to fire, before breaking off. Continue reading
Do people have any idea of the current state of America’s military and any clue whatsoever how grave the situation is? The U.S. nuclear deterrent system is in shambles and the government has no clue what to do about it, Chinese fighter jets are more advanced than their American counterparts and the Russians can disable U.S. Navy ships because the technology is so advanced it’s exactly what makes it vulnerable. The lack of technology is sometimes a strength. The Russian display of technology indicates that they could possibly even in the future invade with very little difficulty, especially if it’s as easy as turning off a TV with a remote control as in this case.
As the article states, the USS Donald Cook has the most recent Aegis Combat System, which is what makes the overall state of the U.S. military so grave. Russia is signaling it can strike, and strike successfully. For those who believe in Bible prophecy and wonder how a land of unwalled villages can be attacked as described in Ezekiel 38, 39 can take place, here is your wake-up call.
If you, as an American aren’t concerned, then there’s something wrong with you.
The sword is coming.

A video presentation of the US Aegis system. Currently installed on the most sophisticated US Navy warships and in the process of being set up throughout the entire range of NATO naval forces, this missile defense system was completely knocked out in the Black Sea by a Russian electronic warfare device.
Visual display of the incident.
The State Department acknowledged that the crew of the destroyer USS Donald Cook has been gravely demoralized ever since their vessel was flown over in the Black Sea by a Russian Sukhoi-24 (Su-24) fighter jet which carried neither bombs nor missiles but only an electronic warfare device.
On 10 April 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on 12 April a Russian Su-24 tactical bomber flew over the vessel triggering an incident that, according to several media reports, completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest .
The USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) is a 4th generation guided missile destroyer whose key weapons are Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of up to 2,500 kilometers, and capable of carrying nuclear explosives. This ship carries 56 Tomahawk missiles in standard mode, and 96 missiles in attack mode. Continue reading
