  • The United States may be Preparing for Space Wars in the Near Future
 

The United States has other plans for the near future. It may in fact be preparing for space wars.

The US military is making way for a series of next generation moves. Warfare exercises will take place in outer space. Some sci-fi weapons such as kamikaze satellites and devastating lasers will be used in the repertoire.

It is merely a case of how long before these space maneuvers begin. The scene is such that it has all the attributes of a nightmare about it.

A series of huge cyberattacks may be the result and furthermore satellites could be made defunct. Millions of Americans stand to have their communication networks undergo breakdown. 

A documentary on this phenomenon really scared many who saw it. Conflict is something which goes with the territory. There had been conflict when the pioneers reached the Wild West.

There had been conflict in Europe when the world wars took place. Russia and China are the main rivals of the US in this game. Russia has already deployed kamikaze satellites in its repertoire.

These have been termed Kosmos 2499. They are designed to come closer to US satellites and destroy them. China too has launched its Shiyan satellites, according to NYPost

These have a grappling arm that could actually capture satellites from their orbits around the earth. The Shiyan-7 was one of three enigmatic satellites that got launched by China about three years ago.

The technology we are dealing with here is such that it could influence US satellites. This includes the region which lies close to the ISS. With the multiplication of these threats, the US will have to be careful. It will need to defend itself and thus will have to stock up on its arsenal in space. 

The US Space Command has 38,000 employees. The annual budget of this organization is nearly $8.9 billion. The Pentagon’s larger budget amounts to $22 billion, according to CNN.

Many in the US military have issued warnings to the effect that the United States is not quite prepared to face this onslaught in space. Therefore the US military is busy building weapons for its space wars.

It would be unrealistic to expect the enemy to be lenient in this matter. The possibilities of space wars must be taken into account at all times.
