Has anyone noticed that the rhetoric coming out of China and Russia has increased by a lot lately? Besides Russia basically blasting everything the United States has been doing in the world, China has also increased their criticism of the U.S as well.
The latest problem that that these 2 countries have with the United States is the shooting down of a satellite that is falling to the earth.
First from China:
China is concerned by U.S. plans to shoot down an ailing spy satellite and is considering what “preventative measures” to take, the Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.
“The Chinese government is paying close attention to how the situation develops and demands the U.S. side fulfill its international obligations and avoids causing damage to security in outer space and of other countries,” spokesman Liu Jianchao said.
Now from the wannabe Russian bear:
On Saturday, Russia’s Defense Ministry said the U.S. plan could be used as a cover to test a new space weapon.
It will be the first time the United States has conducted an anti-satellite operation since the 1980s. Russia also has not conducted anti-satellite activities in 20 years.
The question is this: What is going on with these 2 countries? Are they preparing for a move against the U.S in the future? Or, are they just taking advantage of all of the criticisms going on about the U.S in the world?
I guess we will find out the answers in the future. But, for now, we will be looking into all of this.
