The Left Endlessly Mocked President Trump’s Space Force But Look What Russia Just Did
(Tea Party 247) – During the 8 years of the Obama administration, the United States went from a powerful and respected world leader to taking a weakened position which invited mocking and ridicule from the rest of the world. Instead of promoting American interests globally, Obama would often denigrate the very country he was supposed to be leading. He would put America down and kowtow to other world leaders like a little sheep.
Thanks to President Trump, the US has made great strides in restoring our global position as a strong world leader. This is even despite the nonstop, constant obstruction and attacks from the Democrats which only continue to serve as a thorn in America’s side when it comes to global influence and power.
President Trump has dealt respectfully yet pointedly with other world leaders sending the message that as long as everyone “behaves” we’ll all get along just fine. Strong authoritarians like Russia’s Vladimir Putin respect President Trump, and that’s a good thing, especially when you consider Russia has just successfully launched new space-based weaponry.
The Free Beacon has the story:
Russia successfully launched a new space-based anti-satellite weapon system last week, Space.com reported Thursday.
On July 15, the Kremlin launched a new object into orbit from the Cosmos 2543 satellite, conducting a “non-destructive test of a space-based anti-satellite weapon,” United States Space Command observed.
This test included launching the object unusually close to another Russian satellite. A previous instance of such activity was described as “inconsistent with their stated mission” with space devices, which the State Department deemed “hypocritical and concerning.”
“These satellites displayed characteristics of a space-based weapon,” the State Department added.
Russia used the same hardware to conduct this test as it did in a previous “unusual and disturbing” operation that entailed trailing an American spy satellite, according to the Space Force.
The United States is taking grave notice of increased Russian belligerence in space.
The recent test “highlights Russia’s hypocritical advocacy of outer space arms control, with which Moscow aims to restrict the capabilities of the United States while clearly having no intention of halting its own counterspace program—both ground-based anti-satellite capabilities and what would appear to be actual in-orbit anti-satellite weaponry,” Christopher Ford, the assistant secretary of state for international security and nonproliferation, said.
Washington’s rivals in Moscow and Beijing have ramped up and militarized their ambitions for space. Last week, Russia announced its intention to bolster its partnership capacities with the Chinese space mission. The two countries are developing high-tech space weaponry with deep national security implications for American satellites and communications systems.
Despite the mostly amicable relationship President Trump has had with Putin, the same cannot be said about Beijing and President Xi. It’s going to take a lot more than tactical diplomacy to counter any attacks Russia and China may have in the works. Maybe something like a Space Force perhaps?
Kind of like the one President Trump has received so much criticism and scorn over from the left. Despite the fact that the Dems have done nothing but ridicule the President and his efforts to protect America’s interests in space, which very much effect our day-to-day lives more than most people think, he has been right all along.
The Space Force will be America’s defense when Russia and China finally decide to pull the trigger on an attack against us after all both countries have been seeking world domination for years.
