CHINA'S 'HYPERSONIC' NUCLEAR MISSILE

By Peter Boykin – American Political Commentator / Citizen Journalist

 

China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in August that circled the globe before speeding towards its target, demonstrating an advanced space capability that caught US intelligence by surprise.

The details: Five anonymous sources familiar with the launch said the missile missed its intended target by about 25 miles, but that it “showed that China had made astounding progress on hypersonic weapons and was far more advanced than US officials realized.”

One source admitted: “We have no idea how they did this.”

Why hypersonic matters: Hypersonic missiles glide through low-orbit space at about 5 times the speed of sound. But they don’t fly on a fixed path – they’re maneuverable. So if China launches a nuke at us using this technology it can negate our missile defense systems which are designed to destroy incoming ballistic missiles.

Rogue threat: US military officials in recent months have warned about China’s growing nuclear capabilities, particularly after the release of satellite imagery that showed it was building more than 200 intercontinental missile silos. China is not bound by any arms-control deals and has been unwilling to engage the US in talks about its nuclear arsenal and policy.

Space Force: The media and the left mocked President Trump when he created the Space Force in late 2019. But threats like this are exactly why we need an active military branch in the ‘final frontier.’
