Now, this gets interesting. The real videos of the China UFO (not the obvious fakes with disks and lights) clearly show an ultra-high atmospheric vehicle in operation, with at least a portion of the flight above the atmosphere. Whether what was seen in the Chinese sky was the Shenlong, Hermez, or the "601" H-2, the message is clear. Whether weaponized or not, China's space program has jumped way beyond that of the United States.
So why the UFO cover story?
Simple. America's self-image is in large part linked to the Apollo Moon program and America's achievements in space during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.
But the shuttle fleet is about to be retired after suffering a 40% loss rate, and the replacement shuttle, along with the return to the Moon, have been cut from NASA's budget by the Obama administration. Indeed NASA is but a thin shadow of its former self, like NOAA mostly used for propaganda value to support the push for a global carbon tax. After the last shuttle flies, Americans will no longer be able to fly into space; our crews will have to hitch rides on other nations' rockets.So now as the USA loses its space-faring capability comes a dramatic demonstration that China has advanced into some amazing new technologies.
The USA failed to keep up because once again short-sighted government policy squandered the technology lead created by the Apollo program in the 1960s.This is a major embarrassment for the US government,
especially just before an election, especially for the President and the Congress that gutted NASA to shower money all over Wall Street and buy F-35s for Israel.
Now, in studying the video I think that what was over the skies of China was not specifically the Shenlong. The Shenlong is a non-staged vehicle and in the below video what appears to be a staging event is seen at 30 seconds.
From the flight performance, and staging, I think we are dealing with a larger vehicle, like the Aurora a high altitude transport that deploys a much smaller exo-atmospheric vehicle. And this Chinese image showing potential designs for manned space shuttles includes such a design, possibly the Horizontal take-off and completely reusable H-2.
This talk of UFOs is intended to conceal from the voters and taxpayers that other nations have taken the lead in space away from the United States.
Sooner or later China will fly this machine over the United States with impunity in a replay of the days when the US sent the U-2 and later the SR-71 over the USSR knowing that (with the sole exception of the sabotage which brought down Francis Gary Powers) the Soviets could do nothing about the flights. Pre-conditioning the Americans to shout UFO when the glowing contrails appear in the night sky allows the US Government to pretend that at least here on Earth, American technology still reigns supreme.
Even if we avoid war with China, what remains of America's manufacturing is based on sales of weapons promoted as the most technologically advanced in the world. But that claim, and those sales, must crumble in the face of a clear demonstration that China is the new technological giant of the 21st Century!
Good article. Very thought-provoking.
IMO the author is missing something key: we don't show our cards.
Fact: If the chinese were truly that advanced they'd have no need to be stealing our 'feeble' technology.
I think we're years ahead of them and they just don't know it yet.
But, we still aren't wanting them to make us prove it.
