China is accusing the U.S. of taking its military industrial complex to space. Don’t we have enough problems down on firm ground?
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said this on Wednesday:
“For a long time, the US has openly defined space as a war-fighting domain. It has built the US Space Force and Space Command, developed and deployed space-based offensive weapons, conducted offensive and defensive military exercises and technology tests, and intensified military cooperation with its allies… This has heightened the risks of military miscalculation and conflict.”
Indeed, U.S. lawmakers do seem keen on ratcheting up space warfare rhetoric. Congress says these aircraft are not “man-made” and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mark Warner recently said that UFO’s are a “threat” that is increasing “exponentially.”
Is it? Who is being harmed by UFO’s? What is it they want us to be afraid of in order to pump our tax money into another conflict? Is this a real threat or does the U.S. have its head in the clouds?
