Beijing wants lunar base to launch missiles against any target on Earth :nails:

PLA dreams of turning moon into Death Star, says expert


Experts in China are discussing the possibility of the People's Liberation Army to establish a missile base on the moon following the successful launch of the Long March-3B rocket carrying the Chang'e-3 lunar rover on Dec. 1, according to the Beijing Times.

An expert from the China National Space Administration's Lunar Exploration Programme Center told the paper that China plans to send its first astronaut to the moon by 2030. By 2050, the moon could become a base from which to send the country's manned spacecraft to explore deep space, the source said. He added that the moon is the Earth's only natural satellite, and it can be transformed into a deadly weapon. Like the Death Star in Star Wars, the moon could hypothetically be used as a military battle station and ballistic missiles could be launched against any military target on Earth.

Various weapons testing sites could also be established on the moon, the source said. China is currently the only nation with a lunar exploration program and the Chang'e-3 is only the beginning of a more ambitious program, the source added.



A report appearing in the pro-regime China Times brags that China’s launch of the Long March-3B rocket earlier this week is part of a long term plan to turn the moon into a Star Wars-style “death star” from which the PLA could launch missiles against any target on Earth. It all sounds like something straight out of The Onion, but upon checking the sources it appears that this is indeed what Communist Party officials have been discussing this week following China’s flagship launch of a lunar rover, which is Beijing’s first spacecraft to land on the surface of an extraterrestrial body. The article appears on the Want China Times website, the English-language outlet of the The China Times Group, which is based in Taiwan and considered to be pro-unification and pro-Beijing. The article cites the Beijing Times, which is affiliated with the People’s Daily, as the source for the original report.


Under the headline PLA dreams of turning moon into Death Star, says expert, the report cites “experts in China” who are wargaming how the moon, “Can be transformed into a deadly weapon. Like the Death Star in Star Wars, the moon could hypothetically be used as a military battle station and ballistic missiles could be launched against any military target on Earth.” “Various weapons testing sites could also be established on the moon,” the article adds, noting that the launch of the Long March-3B rocket is the start of “a more ambitious program.” This report again reminds us that some of Beijing’s most jingoistic and aggressive rhetoric is often hidden in plain view, with Chinese military planners perfectly willing to go on the record and brag about their agenda to turn China into a forceful military superpower.
Last month, Chinese state-run media released a map showing the locations of major U.S. cities and how they would be impacted by a nuclear attack launched from the PLA’s strategic submarine force.


Top Chinese generals have also occasionally threatened America with nuclear strikes if the U.S. becomes embroiled in any future conflict involving Taiwan. Tensions between the United States and China are currently running high after Beijing imposed an “air defense zone” over the disputed Senkaku Islands and hinted that it may shoot down any foreign aircraft entering the area. The U.S., Japan and South Korea quickly rendered this threat toothless by performing several overflights of the area without notifying Chinese authorities. According to the Telegraph’s Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, the escalating crisis represents a “watershed moment for the world,” could signal the start of a new cold war, and means “Asia is on the cusp of a full-blown arms race.”

China has acted with increasing military aggression in recent months, first by sending warships to the coast of Syria to in September to “observe” the actions of U.S. and Russian vessels in the region and then by sailing a surveillance ship through Hawaiian waters for the very first time in an unprecedented move which was described as a provocative retaliation to America’s naval presence in the East China Sea.

This 'plan' must be against international law or treaties.

The Japanese have their own plans for a moon based "continent buster" weapon.

Of course, theirs hides behind the cloak of giving the world cheap energy, but it would be pretty easy to turn it into a weapon of mass destruction...not to mention the possibility of super sized industrial accidents when you're beaming tremendous amounts of focused microwave energy at the planet.

Well one positive outcome will be to give the US and the rest of the world that don't want to see the Chinese planet hopping and claiming everything that's not nail down a kick up the butt to get a man on Mars and claim it for mankind for peaceful use. Still there is such a thing as the outer space treaty created by the UN in 1967 and finalized in 1979. The Outer Space Treaty permits states to withdraw from its terms with one year's notification. And the Moon Treaty was never ratified by the United States (so who's a naughty boy then) Looks like all bets are off and the treaty wont be worth the paper it's written on. Listen to the Chinese that's the way it's going to be. I can imagine even now men huddled around a table full of empty coffee cups and pile cigarettes in the ashtray trying to figure out what to do about the claim if it's true.
When people are queuing up to tell me I'm wrong, that's when I know I'm right. The loudest of objection can be defeated by the simpleness of truth.
