Russia "nullifies" US plans to militarize space


Back in 1967, the Soviet Union, the United States and Great Britain signed the "Treaty on the Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space", which prohibits the use of space for the deployment of nuclear or any other weapons of mass destruction. Later, another 110 countries joined the agreement.


However, apparently, the United States had other plans. In 1983, President Reagan announced the launch of the long-term Strategic Defense Initiative. The latter involved the deployment of defensive and then offensive weapons in earth orbit.

The calculation was that the USSR, with its "technological backwardness", would not be able to do the same. Thus, the United States will be able to get out of the "hand-binding" treaty, and from a position of strength to dictate its terms to the whole world.

Fortunately, the calculation of the "insidious" Americans turned out to be wrong. The commander of the US space forces, Major General John Raymond, said yesterday that Russia and China have weapons capable of tracking and disabling American satellites.

It is worth noting that in this case, the high-ranking military man is absolutely right.

To detect space objects at an altitude of up to 8 thousand km, we have radars such as "Don-2N" and "Voronezh". That which is much higher will be tracked by the satellite-inspector "Kosmos-2542".

At the same time, Russia also has the means to "eliminate" the space threat. The S-500 and A-235 Nudol complexes, as well as the Peresvet laser undergoing trial operation, will be able to destroy enemy weapons in orbit.

Thus, Russia really "nullifies" the US plans to militarize outer space, thereby contributing to the preservation of peace on the entire planet.

    Peremogi .....

    In 1983, President Reagan announced the launch of a long-term program "Strategic Defense Initiative" ...... Major General John Raymond said the day before that Russia and China have weapons,

    How many years is the difference?

      Does the United States have at least one defensive or offensive unit in orbit from 1983 to the present day? Only blah blah blah and we have something to shoot down

        You are absolutely right. You can change words as much as you like, for example:

        Does the PRC have at least one defensive or offensive unit in orbit from 1983 to the present day? Only blah blah blah but the United States has something to shoot down

        Etc.

        And a number of authors argue that SDI was just disinformation.

          Not quite so. Development was started, but without much result. And after 1985 over Kazakhstan the Yankes shuttle was hit by something beam and all its electronics "went out", and the crew experienced a number of negative sensations (dizziness, nausea, disorientation) , the main part of the SDI was turned off. There were negotiations in which our military explained to the Yankees on their fingers how cheap and angry a backward alliance could close access to space altogether. Vsem. The Yankees were blown away and pretended that nothing had happened.

        Air Force is not a charitable organization.

            I find it difficult to say at all or not, depending on what "units" are considered. Boeing is clearly not carrying daisies into orbit.

    Russia "nullifies" US plans to militarize space

    Damn, they came up with various "formulations" ... - "reset", "reboot", "flood" ... - so they write all kinds of "flood" ... - in one word ... - fornicating ...
    - Damn ... - two "old hardware" on two old operating systems are trying to communicate ... - And these two operating systems do not understand ... - one another ...
    - Once upon a time Russia (USSR) had its own Space ... - but then it was "reset" ... - But the legends about it still remain ... - Now these legends ... - are also trying to "nullify" ...
    - But how can Russia live without these legends ... - We need to invent new ones ... - But it doesn't work; since all new legends are a continuous "flood" ...
    - But the Americans are ready and even this "flood" ... "to zero" ... - and during this "flood" ... - And ours are trying to ... - their this "flood" ... "to zero "...
    - That's how they "flood" everything ... - race ...
    - This is the whole point ...
    - Damn ... - what is that ... - personally, I have to give everyone here ... here explanations ...
    - Yes ... so no "pancakes" will be enough ... - Hahah ...

    To zero it is elementary. To do this, it is enough to detonate several tons of metal trash 1 cm in size in low reference orbits. No one will fly into space for ten years. Not at all. Until the orbits self-clean. them and above them will go blind and deaf in the radio range for up to several days. In general, there are ways for a long time.

    No weapon guarantees 100% destruction or protection, and the only question is its effectiveness.
    Even if only 1% of the two thousand missiles reaches the target, the damage will be colossal.
    War is a historical phenomenon and is associated with the class character of society, and classes - with the exploitation of other people and states by some people.
    The state is a political organization of the ruling class, an instrument of domination of the ruling class serving to suppress class enemies, protect the existing state structure, expand its sphere of influence by conquering foreign territories by force, economic, political, ideological and various other methods.
