OVER the weekend China demonstrated a hyper sonic nuke capable missile that apparently caught US officials completely surprised.
According to experts, China’s space nukes could evade the US’s missile defense systems.
“We have no idea how they did this,” a source told the Financial Times.
Worse then somehow being completely unaware that the primary competition for military dominance of the earf has a brand new weapon system capable of making the USA a radioactive wasteland, Joe Biden's reaction to the news was less than optimal as his press secretary had this to say:
"We welcome stiff competition,but we do not want that competition to veer into conflict and that is certainly what we conveyed privately as well," Jen Psaki told the AP today.
Well, that's mighty white of you Jen.
This about the same as FDR saying he "welcomes competition" after the Germans introduced the bliztkrieg in Poland....
Excepting of course that hypersonic space based nukes are vastly more dangerous to the United States then '40's era tanks and planes ever could be.
But of course presumably Roosevelt hadn't accepted hundreds of thousands in "investment" money from Nazi Germany before they invaded Poland. The same apparently can not be said about Joe Biden and China.
And here's another wacky idea - instead of pretending that the Steele "dossier" was anything other than good for a laugh (and other adventures in soft coups), or trying to frame 6 rubes from Michigan, or threatening parents who don't want school boards covering up rapes, maybe just maybe spend resources on trying to figure out if China is trying to kill the world with bio-weapons and/or nukes?
That way you won't be totally caught be surprise.
Worse of course is that most of the tech for the new weapon was stolen from the USA. Given what we know about this current admin, how likely is it that they grit their teeth and root out all the people beholden to China? To really get to the bottom of it? Would your answer be zero or none?
Speaking of that, President Biden's official stance on the corona virus bio-weapon is that they don't know even if it was created in a lab or not, much less in Wuhan - a simply ludicrous position.
