Hm, some interesting stuff here. I just had a few questions/comments/concerns here and there:
IWORLD WIDE, NSA Super Computers...ie...EPSILON...with the ability to intercept and record EVERY ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION ON EARTH, A COVERT
ELECTRONIC WARFARE AND COMPUTER HACKING WARFARE BUDGET that is larger than the GNP of a European Country, The current QUANTUM COMPUTER PROJECT which
is whispered to have been successful and numerous other programs.
Are you talking about ECHELON? That's multinational (Australia, UK, New Zealand and Canada are all involved). Which brings an interesting point up--
World War III isn't likely to happen (anytime soon, anyway), not because of any one nation being super advanced, but because most of the really
really advanced nations are allied and unless something crazy happens, they're unlikely to forge new alliances and/or become enemies of one another.
The QUANTUM COMPUTER PROJECT...if completed or when completed...will give the U.S. Military the ability to DECODE or CRACK other Countries Guidance
Systems even if they are using a Changing Algorithmic Encryption Signal or any standard 40 bit, 128 bit, 256 bit, 1024 bit, 1039 bit and higher...but
it is the ALGORITHMIC ENCRYPTION that countries such as the U.S., Russia and even China to an extent that a QUANTUM COMPUTER COULD BREAK in a matter
of seconds. This ability allows for an Electronic Warfare Aircraft to SHUT DOWN MISSILE GUIDANCE as well as HACK A COUNTRIES MAIN FRAME MILITARY
COMPUTERS at ease.
This should be noted...and I know this as a FACT. The U.S. Military has the ability to make it's Military Main Frames UNHACKABLE.
Quantum computing is probably marginally more advanced in the UK or Australia-- a research team lead by engineers from the later country figured out a
way to make manufacturing qubits possible.
I have no knowledge of missile guidance systems, but I would assume they operate similar to drone navigation systems which
are already fairly cheap and easy
to hack by spoofing GPS
. As for hacking other nations' computer systems, I would imagine most countries implement security protocols similar to
the unhackable US with SIPRNet, and for those important systems that can't be compartmentalized, most nations are surely investing heavily in
researching quantum cryptography.
TTargeting and Tracking and any Defensive/ Offensive Systems such as the FEL and MEB...which U.S. SPACE COMMAND has designed Protocols of which
Space Command to FEL and MEB Satellite Communication is performed in a Multiple Redundancy Fashion as well as has Protocols to VAPORIZE any target
within any distance considered to be a danger as these Satellites are NOT NEAR EARTH SATELLITES....
I can't find anything about FEL or MEB weapons that says they are already capable of being retargeted and manipulated via satellite reflectors. I'm,
again, out of my depth as particle physics and/or optics sound like Greek to me, lol. But couldn't other nations simply fortify likely targets with
similar reflectors? It would be expensive,but it would make launching an attack against any high value target a real risk (since the reflected beam
could hit the now slightly disaligned satellite and damage or destroy it).
But overall, I think the biggest deterrent to WWIII is much simpler than military prowess of any one nation. After all, as I said before, the US is
allied with most every nation that would have a shot at taking it down. In WWII the US faced legitimate threats from Japan and Germany (though Germany
of course was mostly concerned with its European neighbors) but now the only advanced nations that would ever really want to go to war with the US
would be Russia and China. And the US has basically everyone else in their pocket or, at the very least, other nations won't step in. Maybe the US'
advanced tech is part of the reason they have so many allies, but if war broke out I don't think we've seen even 25% of what other nations have to
offer either, and if the US went up against other first world nations filled to the brim with just as talented engineers, programmers and scientists I
have little doubt it'd be in trouble if only because reverse engineering a technology is easier than starting from scratch.
I shudder to think of how destructive a war with such advanced weapons would leave the Earth...
