Russia: Washington Intends To Use Outer Space For Combat Operations

Kevin Lamarque/Reuters, Trump campaign

Comment by the Information and Press Department on space-based elements outlined in the US Missile Defence Review (source):

We have taken note that in the US Missile Defence Review (MDR) published on January 17, a serious emphasis is placed on the formation of a space-based missile defence group, including missile interceptors. Deployment of such systems in space is ostensibly designed to make it easier to destroy different types of missiles in the boost phase over enemy territory. To achieve this, the US Defence Department has been instructed to study the most advanced technology, as well as draw up a time schedule, costs and personnel requirements.

We consider this to be further evidence (on a par with the decision to create space-based armed forces and the allocation of funds for the development of space-based missile defence) of Washington’s real intention to use outer space for combat operations and ensuring US domination in space in the near future. We are deeply disappointed that instead of developing constructive dialogue on the issues of strategic stability and preventing an arms race in space the US preferred to return to the implementation of yet another version of Ronald Reagan’s Star Wars programme.

We again urge Washington to display prudence and give up such irresponsible ventures that could have extremely adverse consequences for the entire international community and the United States itself. Obviously, the appearance of weapons in outer space would run counter to the established practice of international cooperation in space exploration and the use of outer space for peaceful purposes.

The potential implementation of US military plans in space will deal a blow at the current system of ensuring the security of space activities, which was shaped by the development of international space law. All of Washington’s previous attempts to ensure military supremacy invariably ended in the escalation of tensions and new rounds of the arms race.

Russia gives priority to space exploration and use exclusively for peaceful purposes and, unlike the United States, does not nurture plans to use attack weapons in orbit. This is proved by many initiatives made by Russia with the support of a solid group of like-minded countries on preventing an arms race in space, including elaborating a binding international instrument on keeping outer space free from any types of weapons based on the Russia-China draft treaty on the prevention of the deployment of weapons in outer space and the threat or use of force against outer space objects. In particular, we intend to continue active work in the Group of Government Experts on the further practical measures for the prevention of an arms race in outer space, which was established by UN General Assembly Resolution 72/250. The group’s final session will take place in Geneva on March 18-29.

You can now watch Independence Day in a different light.
Invasion by a transnational species, using huge bases to threaten mankind with advanced weaponry.

Russia cry every time we move, but America never stand still.
If somebody or something is in the way, we remove it. If you can dream it, you can do it.
America use the most advanced technology to create space-based laser armed forces to our space laser missile defences in outer space for combat operations and America will lead the world as the light on the hill.
Only now and for the future we will lead you as the light from outer space……………………….LOL.


Dream on wake up later ! You dont have adecuat missiles to go to ISS, You Titanium plates delivered by the russians for military airplanes, you claimed to have been on the moon but never proved it, Your largely behind in Russian technology aswell inSocial Human behaviour !


You are wrong Tommy.

This Galactic alien leader has just Self Identified as the rightful and democratic President of the USA.
Russia and China support him, along with many nations on earth.

Any people on earth who fail to kneel before this Galactic President will be forced to listen to Hillary Clinton and Trump for eternity.Includiny YOU Tommy.

An American is not afraid of anybody and anything.
When America wanna move, we move forward and this guy better be part of the American Bulldozer or else he will be part of the road married in with Hillary.




US MIC has not produced a new veritable weapon system in over three decades, and now they want to deploy make believe weapons in outer space? Dream on.


A ‘war in Space’ would create a massive amount if debris that would threaten all the satellites etc in space for many years, even thousands of years perhaps.

I can still read a map :)


Energy from nuclear warheads would reduce the debris, and release strong doses of EMP rendering sattelites useless. Space is not a place to fight wars with present day weapons.


The US has never been very careful about ‘unintended ‘ military consequence’s .

Its apparent that most of the US strategists must go for a shit with no toilet paper.

Yup, just another example how to legitimize MOD budget. If I understood it correct, MOD wants to put kinetic weapons in the outer space orbit (lasers are good under presumption of the clear sky, and yet again require huge amount of energy from the Sun?). Kinetic weapons require a lot of fuel to be transported UP. Wings are not usefull there, so another small engines to correct trajectory before entering atmosphere consuming additional fuel. Merely touching all prerequisites for successful kinetic weapon of course referring to ABM part.


US rocket technology and know how has diminished since the Apollo program. Americans are very good in propagating BS.


A Space Force was in fact a requirement of the PNAC – Project for a New “American” Century -.
And John Bolton was a leading member of this organisation.

According to PNAC, America needed to:
– Reposition permanently based forces to Southern Europe, Southeast Asia and the Middle East;
– Modernize U.S. forces, including enhancing our fighter aircraft, submarine and surface fleet capabilities;
– Develop and deploy a global missile defense system, and develop a strategic dominance of space;
– Control the “International Commons” of cyberspace;
– Increase defense spending to a minimum of 3.8 percent of gross domestic product, up from 3%.

IMO, this was a blue print for the next step of their NWO. These recommandations were probably the 1st step: Preparation.
And everybody knows what for…

The problem is they will be fumbling with this duffer scheme the next 20 years too.


the US has a space fleet since 20 years. Now it will surface, together with the reason behind it. Research the Secret Space Program and the 21 missing trillion, it’s plenty of evidences.
