China recently blew one of its old weather satellites to smithereens. This upset the U.S. immensely, mostly
because it was not aware that China had the technology to take out a satellite in space with a missile. Here are a few headlines
of January 20, 2007:
- West Fears Space Arms Race After China Missile Test: The Australian
- Governments Protest China’s Space Missile Test: ABC
- U.S. Calls on China to Explain Anti-Satellite Weapon: Voice of America
- China Tests Anti-Satellite Weapon, Unnerving U.S.: International Herald Tribune
Where were these media a few months ago when George Bush stated that the U.S. owns outer space and will take
out any satellite it wishes? He made these statements, yet few reported. Now, China blows up an outdated satellite and the
reports infer there may be a world crisis and a huge arms race in space.
U.S. aspirations of owning outer space are no secret. It’s just that nobody listens and, like other
U.S. imperialistic shenanigans, it’s too late to reverse a project once it is in place.
China upset the apple cart. It has the technology to thwart U.S. possession of outer space, all the time the
U.S. experts thought it would be years away from obtaining such weaponry. By then, it would be too late for the rest of the
Hypocrisy again reigns. The U.S. objects to China’s missile, while, at the same time, it is working
on its own satellite destroying missiles. In October, I ran a column about U.S. outer space aspirations. At the time, little
was said about the absurdity of the U.S. claiming the universe for itself. If China had not upset the story line, the U.S.
may have been only a few years from developing the most vile anti-human, anti-earth weapons systems ever envisaged.
I hope that after the hoopla about China’s missile fades away, the press will then investigate and report
on the diabolical plans for U.S. outer space hegemony. That’s the real story, not China’s destroying one of its
own useless spheroids.
Here is the story I wrote in October. Now, it takes on an even more malevolent demeanor. Then again, China’s
test may have been what it took to gain the publicity of the plans of the U.S. Maybe the media will wake up and put things

GOD BLESS AMERICA (AND OUTER SPACE)
Recently, George Bush read a statement that should have been headline news worldwide, yet few publications
gave it any ink. He said that outer space belongs to the United States and if anybody tries to get in the way, they will be
On October 19, 2006, The Register, a British publication, ran an article called "U.S. Stakes Claim
on Space." The author, Lucy Sherriff, stated:
The U.S. has claimed "dibs" on the Universe with its new space policy. The document, signed by President Bush,
was released on a Friday, just before a long weekend in the States. This, in itself, has caused a bit of a stir, but no more
so than the tone and content of the document.
In it, the U.S. government allocates itself rights to access and use outer space without anyone else getting
in the way. It also sets security at the heart of the space agenda, frequently citing its right to use space as part of its
Significantly, however, it does not commit to restrict, or even join the talks about restricting the development
of space-based weapons. This is despite a U.N. vote last year in which 160 nations voted in favor of such talks …
… The document then warms to its military theme. The first fundamental goal of the program is not given
as being to explore the solar system or better understand the Universe, but:
"To strengthen the nation’s space leadership and ensure that space capabilities are available in time
to further U.S. national security, homeland security, and foreign policy objectives."
The implications are immense and disastrous. Bush was not speaking of defensive weapons, but offensive projectiles
that could create deadly havoc on Earth. And, he says the U.S. has the right to destroy any space object from another country.
When finished, the system will be much like the U.S. current spy satellite network: there will be portions linked to each
other so the entire globe will be monitored and a satellite will be able to launch a weapon that can hit any target within
15 minutes. There will be no opposition in space to stop this scenario.
For the past century or so, humankind has been fascinated with science fiction. In the 1920s, many magazines,
called "pulp" publications emerged that depicted aliens from outer space attacking Earth.
In 1938, Orson Welles broadcast a radio presentation of the classic "War of the Worlds." In the story, Martians
invade Earth and almost do everyone in, but, at the last minute, the Martians die because of the microbes in Earth’s
The broadcast created an uproar on the eastern portion of the U.S. Many people thought it was a real news
story and began packing up their valuables and leaving their homes in an attempt to flee the aliens. When word came out in
the studio that pandemonium was occurring, Welles quickly and repeatedly stated that this was only a radio presentation of
a novel, not actual news.
Today, what was once science fiction is becoming science fact. However, the weapons in outer space that have
been projected by the U.S. government won’t be used to protect Earthlings from alien intruders. They are being designed
to kill people on the Earth, not shield them.
Ronald Reagan wanted a "Star Wars" program. After billions of dollars were spent in design and some manufacturing,
it was concluded that the program would not work. Most people thought that was the end of the fiasco.
However, the warmongering people of the military and various administrations have kept the idea alive. Unknown
to most U.S. citizens is the fact that hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent on further implementations of a space
Sean Gonzalves of the Cape Cod Times attended a two-day seminar, called "Full-Spectrum Dominance,"
on the militarization of space at the 1,000-acre estates of Airlie Conference Center in Warrenton, Virginia. He reported some
scary stuff. According to Gonzalves:
Top defense experts, scholars, diplomats, and a handful of reporters were in attendance and for hours on end
we heard presentations from the likes of retired Air Force General Chuck Horner, who was the air commander during the 1991
Persian Gulf War; Dr. Everett Dolman, Associate Professor of Comparative Military Studies at the U.S. Air Force’s School
of Advanced Air and Space Studies; Dr. Theodore Postol, MIT Professor of Science, Technology and National Security, just to
name a few.
"Full Spectrum Dominance" comes right out of U.S. military doctrine, as outlined in documents such as "Full
Spectrum Dominance and Air Force Space Command Strategic Master Plan FY06," which states that the U.S. military goal is to
fight war "in, from and through space."
Once, most people thought that a space-based defense system was just that" to defend the U.S. from incoming
missiles. You know, the kind that Dick Cheney said Iraq had pointed at the U.S. east coast. That concept is entirely wrong.
As you read this, defense officials are developing plans to put weapons in space, things called hypervelocity
red bundles, which insiders call "Rods from God," whose purpose is to penetrate subterranean targets.
Our policy-planners and so-called leaders are provoking China and Russia in their pursuit of God-like powers
to dominate the Earth, which is the most dangerous form of idolatry imaginable.
Meanwhile, most Americans have never heard of this stuff as conservative Christians, who seem to be hogging
the national microphone, debate about same-sex marriage and stem-cell research.
Another term that is used for the Rods from God is "Divine Intervention." The administration has all its religious
Gonzalves is one of only a handful of journalists who has the nerve to approach the subject of "God and country"
in such a manner. To him, the combination of God and hi-tech weapons can only spell doom for all living things on Earth. He
As kids growing up in the U.S., we were taught songs that glorified killing in the name of God. And, this
was in the public school system. Few people ever thought twice about the implications. A 10-year-old kid does not question
Here are a few lines from a song well-known to virtually all Americans, "Onward Christian Soldiers:"
Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before;
Christ, the royal master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See, His banners go.
How about the "Battle Hymn of the Republic?" It was written in 1861 and was used as a rallying cry for northern
troops in the U.S. Civil War. This song was sung at the funerals of Winston Churchill and Ronald Reagan. Here are a few verses:
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on.
Etc, etc, etc.
I remember that I only mimicked singing this song. First, I was a horrible singer and secondly I did not understand
it. When it came to the part of "His terrible swift sword," the words sounded like "His terrible big sore." I never asked
the teacher or a classmate what the words were.
Most U.S. citizens have been exposed to such songs that are meant to bring out patriotic feelings. This is
inbred in the U.S. psyche.
No wonder many U.S. soldiers consider their fighting to be a part of defending God and country. It has been
instilled in their minds.
Now we see our next generation of weapons will be called "Rods from God" and they will be performing "divine
intervention." In addition, they will be much more devastating than any weapon in the current U.S. arsenal.
In the future, U.S. military operations, such as those taken against Iraq and Serbia, will be able to be completed
in a few days without one U.S. military person being involved in the target country. They will be able to take out concrete
bunkers that are considered impenetrable with today’s weapons. There will be no need for "boots on the ground" to occupy
a country because the entire infrastructure of the nation and its leadership will be destroyed from outer space. And we think
the invasion of Iraq was diabolical.
We ain’t seen nothing yet.
