Red Space

Communist China continues to use the money they get from us to make weapons.  Many of these weapons are used in outer space.  The Communist Chinese manufactured a missile to launch into space to kill satellites.  They successfully tested it by blowing up one of their own retired satellites.  That irresponsible test was not only a direct threat to the United States but put many pieces of space debris into an already crowded Earth orbit.

The United States does not have a similar system.  In the days of the Cold War the US and USSR said they would not target space satellites and did not use space for military purposes other than reconnaissance and communications.  Obviously, the Chinese see space as just another arena to fight inside.

In the meantime the Obama Administration has ended America's manned space program taking us back to the 1950's in terms of manned space capability.  If we are to remain a superpower we need to spend money on space and on national defense.  Spending money on food stamps won't keep the Chinese Communists from making moves into areas that were formerly all American; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
