My statements fit under several, previously posted topics, but I wanted to combine them to reflect my thoughts.
What is China doing up there anyway?
There is nothing up there for them to copy. They used a rocket copied by the russians. Many of their military 'utensils' are copies of america's
products. The science they portrey to be doing, is old science. The technology to get the rocket to fly up instead of down, was stolen(given) by(to)
them by an american business.
So I am going out on a limb....(hope it doesnt break!)
Lets say North Korea gets more difficult. China already has a border patrol big time, and is currently building on that. So we go to NK to destroy
their nuclear efforts. China has the north border blocked, and possibly ready for a front.
China has a polar-orbit satilite. This is not for gps, or cable, or phones, it is for weapon guidance only. And not for one of their neighbors.
China has been playing a currency game. They are manipulating their currency value, while building their gold reserves, and buying euro's. If they
were to flip-flop, they could upset the currency market throughout the world. This could de-stabilize many economies.
So why would they be up there?
I feel that if the current world situation accellorates to the point of global war, and maybe keeps us from using our shuttle system, this could be a
military ploy. If, as experience shows us, a shuttle were to crash, blow up, or some other un-forseen circumstance were to occur, then our space
program would be grounded. Probubly at least for a year, if funded properly.
If we were in economic difficulty, and deeply involved with middle eastern affairs, and the pre-occupied with Nort Korea (pun intended), and
something happens to delay our space program, that would leave them the only people with the technology and able-economy to go into orbit.
Maybe a couple of inertia weapons, laser weapons, or old fashion projectiles, could be used to one-by-one pick off our satilites that we so much
depend on for our military controls and activities, to say the least national communications and business interests.
Just some thoughts, that seem to be floating around my head.
Just wondering why?
Any thoughts to agree/disagree?
