China is building an array of high-technology space arms – anti-satellite missiles, lasers, GPS jammers and killer satellites – that Beijing says will give its military strategic advantage in a future conflict with the United States.

The People’s Liberation Army now has the capability of attacking, destroying or disrupting the 500 US satellites circling the earth at heights of between 1,200 miles and 22,000 miles, according to a new study by a US think tank, the National Institute for Public Policy.

The report, on “Foreign Space Capabilities,” also reveals that China’s military has discussed plans for using space detonations of nuclear weapons to create electronics-killing Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attacks against orbiting satellites used by militaries for precision weapons targeting, navigation and communications.

A Space War With China or Russia Is a Real Threat

America could’ve been the king of space decades ago and the the fate of the nation wouldn’t be in jeopardy, but it suicidally chose to abandon Reagan’s Star Wars space warfare program. Sadly, most people in the press are far behind in recognizing this or choose to look the other way and ignore it. The unintelligent community which has a bad habit of being years behind in detecting threats, only to be routinely ‘shocked’ when they ‘suddenly’ discover it, is of more concern.

 

A war in space sounds like a great plot for a summer blockbuster.

Unfortunately, a conflict in space isn’t just a Hollywood movie script anymore, but a threat in the real world.

Both Russia and China have developed, or are developing, the ability to shoot satellites out of space.

Is China’s space programme a cover for anti-satellite technology? Expert claims we should be wary of ‘missiles’ being launched

On 15 October 2003 China launched their first ‘taikonaut,’ the Chinese term for an astronaut, into space on the Shenzhou 5 spacecraft

This has been followed by further space exploration achievements, including an Earth-orbiting laboratory called Tiangong-1 and a lunar rover named Jade Rabbit.

But is it all a front to build anti-satellite technology? That’s what one expert warns we should be wary of, and not just from China, but Iran and North Korea as well.

In a paper called Dangerous Space Incidents, Micah Zenko of the Council on Foreign Relations explains how satellites could be under threat from the rising space exploration capabilities of certain nations. Continue reading

EU plans independent intelligence agency as response to US

With the United States suiciding itself back into the stone age, the EU is not idly waiting for someone else to depend on, such as NATO. It would leave them too exposed to China and Russia. A European Army is slowly being born (Additional sources: Here and here) while the EU itself continues to force itself through economic and social means into the United States of Europe. Its very own intelligence apparatus is only part of the overall objective.

In the end, all roads lead to Berlin which controls and runs the EU via economic might and heavily wielding influence through such organizations as “The Troika” that subjugates other nations (i.e. Greece and Cyprus) and turns them into German vassal states. The Fourth Reich is here.

In any case, the EU does and always has known that the NSA has been spying on them — as well as having been a source of their own intelligence.  Germany in fact has been collaborating with the NSA since the 1960’s. Germany itself cannot spy legally on their own citizens in such a manner as the NSA, thus needs the outside source which is out of legal jurisdiction and cannot be held accountable. This is only a politically driven tactic to slowly push the US out of its backyard and for the EU to stand out on its own as a world superpower.

The European Union (EU) is planning to assemble an independent intelligence body of its own in “an urgent response” to the recent revelation that the US has been spying on EU officials as well as European citizens.

The planned apparatus, which will be set up by owning and operating spy drones, surveillance satellites and espionage aircraft by the EU itself, will be used for “internal security and defence purposes,” the Telegraph reported, citing “officials.” Continue reading
