May 24, 2000, Bill Clinton clinched "the last great legislative victory of his presidency". The House of Representatives awarded China permanent normal trade relations, backing Beijing’s long-in-the-making bid to join the World Trade Organization. 2017: Here is the Result:

Light war: space-based lasers among Beijing’s high-tech arms


High-tech arsenal including electromagnetic railguns and microwave weapons aims to neutralize web of satellites that give US its main strategic edge

China’s military is developing powerful lasers, electromagnetic railguns and high-power microwave weapons for use in a future “light war” involving space-based attacks on satellites.

Beijing’s push to produce so-called directed-energy weapons aims to neutralize America’s key strategic advantage: the web of intelligence, communication and navigation satellites enabling military strikes of unparalleled precision expeditionary warfare far from US shores.

The idea of a space-based laser gun was disclosed in the journal Chinese Optics in December 2013 by three researchers, Gao Ming-hui, Zeng Yu-quang and Wang Zhi-hong. All work for the Changchun Institute for Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics – the leading center for laser weapons technology.

“In future wars, the development of ASAT [anti-satellite] weapons is very important,” they wrote. “Among those weapons, laser attack system enjoys significant advantages of fast response speed, robust counter-interference performance and a high target destruction rate, especially for a space-based ASAT system. So the space-based laser weapon system will be one of the major ASAT development projects.”

The researchers propose building a 5-ton chemical laser that will be stationed in low-earth orbit as a combat platform capable of destroying satellites in orbit. Given funding by the Chinese military, which is in charge of China’s space program, the satellite-killing laser could be deployed by 2023.

According to the article, an anti-satellite attack in space would employ a ground-based radar to identify a target satellite, a special camera to provide precision targeting and a deployable membrane telescope that would focus the laser beam on the target satellite.

The article also reveals that in 2005, the Chinese conducted a test of a ground-based laser weapon that was used to “blind” an orbiting satellite.

“In 2005, we have successfully conducted a satellite-blinding experiment using a 50-100 kilowatt capacity mounted laser gun in Xinjiang province,” the three researchers wrote. “The target was a low orbit satellite with a tilt distance of 600 kilometers. The diameter of the telescope firing the laser beam is 0.6 meters wide. The accuracy of [acquisition, tracking and pointing is less than 5 [microradians].”
Richard Fisher, a China military specialist at the International Assessment and Strategy Center, disclosed the existence of the laser weapons program in US congressional testimony last month.

He did, however, caution that the publication of such articles is a clear indication that Beijing wants the world to believe — or at least raise the possibility that it could — rapidly militarize space.

China’s space program is dual-use — supporting both civilian and military needs. For example, China’s Shenzhou and Tiangong manned spacecraft were used to perform military missions. China’s coming space station and plans for a future base on the moon also will have military applications. It is conceivable that China could launch an orbiting laser gun disguised as a scientific module.

Long March 3C, carrying an experimental spacecraft, lifts off from the launch pad at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, Sichuan province, October 24, 2014. The experimental spacecraft launched early on Friday morning is part of a test in the hope of leading to future return missions to the moon, China's state media reported.

“The Chinese government would not hesitate to use the lives of its astronauts as a shield to deceive the world about the real purpose of its space station,” Fisher says.
“Having gained the advantage of surprise, the combat space station could begin attacks against key US satellites, thus blinding the US to the launch of new combat satellites that would attack many more US satellites.”

Developing dedicated space combat system is in line with China’s long-term goal of achieving global strategic ascendency. Fisher believes the threat of Chinese space weapons is more than notional and that the US should respond by developing its own space warfare capabilities.

China has been working on developing laser weapons since the 1960s, and the People’s Liberation Army in 2015 published the book Light War that gives a central role to fighting a future war using lasers.

The book argues that future warfare will be dominated by combing Big Data analytics – a specialty of Chinese military cyber warriors with artificial intelligence and directed energy weapons. According to Light War, deploying robot laser weapons in space is needed since directed energy will dominate the battlefields in 30 years.

“Perhaps the PLA is already reconfiguring for such a new era inasmuch as a major mission for the PLA’s new Strategic Support Force may be to lead the weaponization of the information realm and outer space,” Fisher says.

The Chinese effort could neutralize decades of investment by the United States in its own directed-energy weapons, including lasers, electromagnetic railguns and high-power microwave arms. The Pentagon in the past developed an airborne laser for use in missile defenses and railguns are expected to be deployed in the early 2020s. High-powered compact laser guns are slated for the 2030s.

Military secrecy prevents knowing the full breadth of China’s high-tech energy weapons programs. But the testimony and published writings make clear that the development of these arms is getting large-scale investment and high-level Chinese support.

Military secrecy prevents knowing the full breadth of China’s high-tech energy weapons programs. But the testimony and published writings make clear that the development of these arms is getting large-scale investment and high-level Chinese support.

Michael J Listner, of Space Law & Policy Solutions, believes China is likely making substantial progress in directed-energy devices, based on efforts being made and the resources available. “And with their prolific network of espionage, it is likely that development is supported by foreign research they have acquired as well,” he said.

“Such devices have a myriad of applications to include adapting them to their ASAT program, ballistic missile defense, point-defense for their naval vessels and battlefield applications,” he added. “Once China develops the underlying technology, the potential military applications are limitless as are the non-military uses.”

China’s disclosures about the coming weaponization of space should greatly concern American and allied defense planners, given the potential for these technologies to alter global stability and peace.

In light of these threats, the United States should consider changing its long-held policy of not deploying arms in space.

“As long as China demonstrates its willingness to exploit much of its space program for potential military missions, the US must possess options for at least neutralizing potential threats, preferably short of threatening lives,” Fisher says.

  7. Final thought:

    Tony Podesta, brother of Hillary’s national presidential campaign manager John Podesta, is a super lobbyist who took huge money from the Russians in order to end U.S. government sanctions against Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank.

    Not only did the brother of Hillary’s campaign manager take huge money from the Russians to represent a foreign government’s biggest bank, but his firm accepted more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it from foreign governments.

    If Democrats want congressional investigations into Russian connections, I say we give them major investigations. Let’s start with Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and his brother Tony.

    Why Hillary herself, you ask? I’ve been publicly talking about this story for many years. The Clinton Foundation was from the start a bribery and extortion racket set up by the former president of the United States and his wife, the secretary of state. They didn’t just talk to Russians or other foreign governments and foreign leaders. They accepted massive bribes, disguised as “charitable donations.”

    Juvenal’s Ghost Asks: Who Is Watching the Watcher?
    By Robert Oscar Lopez

    With each day the ghost of Juvenal looms larger. This famed Roman satirist sought to capture the Emperor Domitian’s vice-infested culture, in the gloomy years ending the first century. The more people tried to censor him the more merciless his tongue became.

    Trump’s America should study his incisive texts, including this famous passage often translated as “who is watching the watcher?” See:


    Hey there, you

    Who do you think you’re fooling [with] this masquerade…
    I know the advice my old friends would give—“Lock her up

    And bar the doors.”
    But who is to keep guard

    Over the guards themselves? They get paid in common coin

    To forget their mistress’s randy little adventures;

    Both sides have something to hide. Any sensible wife,

    Planning ahead, will first turn the heat on them.

    --Juvenal’s Sixth Satire

    (Trans. Peter Green. In Juvenal, Sixteen Satires (New York: Viking Penguin, 1985), 140.)

    Through laughter he taught readers about fake news and kangaroo courts. The simple message in Satire VI, known as his diatribe on women, is this: See who’s paying the investigator, and you’ll know what general falsehoods the investigator is likely to come up with. Caveat Priebus.

    Culture in the third phase

    Three periods of the Roman Empire’s culture stand out. Just before and after the birth of Christ, Virgil’s Aeneid and Horace’s gentle satires trumpeted an Augustan “Romanitas” (or “Roman virtue”) for jittery citizens who survived decades of civil war to become the most powerful people in the whole world. Call this the “winsome phase.”

    Mid-century, just after the end of Paul’s ministry, a generation of writers including Petronius (Satyricon) and Lucan (Pharsalia) reacted to the excesses of Nero’s reign by penning epic-length narratives full of viscera and gore. Call this the “gross phase.”

    Over a century after Virgil’s Aeneid, in a third phase, Juvenal emerged as a new voice of satire. He felt neither inspired to offer virtuous stories nor compelled to use grotesquerie to mourn virtues lost. Call this the “crass phase.”

    For Juvenal’s generation, all that remained was sarcastic exposés on the utter crudeness of a self-righteous but decadent society. He was perhaps like Bill Maher, only a social conservative. (His second satire, on sodomy, has already gotten him banned from Classics syllabi on politically correct campuses!)

    Trump’s America is Juvenal’s Rome

    Perhaps the Oscars’-night loss of La La Land to the politically contrived Moonlight points to where America now stands. Postwar musicals delivered wholesomeness to an aspiring empire led by a World War II general. Our winsome phased ended with Shirley Jones’s winks and nods to Harold Hill in the cinematic version of 1962’s Music Man. Then for Phase II we had Linda Lovelace and Texas Chainsaw Massacre shocking the 1970s. Now we are living in Juvenal’s Rome and the crass phase. Neither Eisenhowerian innocence nor Nixonian outrage can compete with the allure of simple apathy and sass.

    Why bother caring when we know the system is rigged and everyone claiming to be outraged is really just running another scam on us?

    But we are not Rome! We cannot let go of our principles yet, because whereas Rome simply had to worry about Visigoths and Parthians, we face the far more dangerous Democrats....

    I've called Trump a clown before.

    Now, I will have to amend that to 'scary clown'.

    During the campaign on numerous occasions, Trump mentioned that one of his top priorities was to defend Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security from the people (read Paul Ryan and his ilk) who are trying to cut those programs. He says we owe it to the American people.

    Now, one of his first acts as president is to buy onto Ryan's health care plan, a plan that will cancel the Obamacare expanded Medicaid program, provide bloc grants and push total responsibility to the states for the rest of Medicaid (a process history tells us means cuts to the states), and will eliminate Medicaid funds for mental health and substance abuse. Evidently, the poor don't suffer from these maladies.

    The obvious losers, the poor. The winners, the rich like Trump and the MIC.

      Senthil Kumaran | TNN | Updated: Mar 11, 2017, 10.51 AM IST


      ERODE: A baby monkey that lost its mother in a road accident made all those witnessed the scene cry. The young monkey wept sitting near the carcass of its mother that was knocked down by a speeding vehicle near Elanthur on the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka National highway on Friday.

      "Losing a loved one will be painful for not just human beings. Animals too mourn. We saw the young monkey weeping over the carcass of its mother," said K Saravanan, who witnessed the scene.

      The baby monkey saw its mother being knocked down by a vehicle while she was crossing the road. It rushed to its mother that lay on the road. The baby monkey tried to wake its mother and hugged her. It kept its ears on her chest as if checking her heartbeat. Soon it realised that the mother had died, and it started to weep.

"The baby monkey jumped from one tree to another tree and followed us when we carried the carcass," said G Sathyanarayanan, another villager.

      The villagers conducted the final rites of the mother monkey in the presence of police and forest officials while the baby monkey watched it from a distance.

    5. Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahimsā, Pāli:[1] avihiṃsā) means 'not to injure' and 'compassion' and refers to a key virtue in Indian religions.[2][3][4] The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[5][6] Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings—including all animals—in ancient Indian religions.[7]

      Ahimsa is one of the cardinal virtues[3] and an important tenet of Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Ahimsa is a multidimensional concept,[8] inspired by the premise that all living beings have the spark of the divine spiritual energy; therefore, to hurt another being is to hurt oneself. Ahimsa has also been related to the notion that any violence has karmic consequences. While ancient scholars of Hinduism pioneered and over time perfected the principles of Ahimsa, the concept reached an extraordinary status in the ethical philosophy of Jainism.[3][9] Most popularly, Mahatma Gandhi strongly believed in the principle of ahimsa.[10]

      Ahimsa's precept of 'cause no injury' includes one's deeds, words, and thoughts.[11][12] Classical literature of Hinduism such as Mahabharata and Ramayana, as well as modern scholars[13] debate principles of Ahimsa when one is faced with war and situations requiring self-defence. The historic literature from India and modern discussions have contributed to theories of Just War, and theories of appropriate self-defence.[14]

    1. Mastadon shit.

      So say the Asian, the Hispanic, the Jew
      The African and Native American, the Sioux,
      The Catholic, the Muslim, the French, the Greek
      The Irish, the Rabbi, the Priest, the Sheikh,
      The Gay, the Straight, the Preacher,
      The privileged, the homeless, the Teacher.
      They hear. They all hear
      The speaking of the Tree.


      Only saved, just barely, from being pure dinosaur dung by a possible reference to the Cosmic Tree at the end....though whether this is what she intended is beyond me.

      Quirk might know.

      Quirk, is this poem saved, just barely, from being pure dinosaur dung by a possible reference to the Cosmic Tree at the end ?

    Final thought:

    Tony Podesta, brother of Hillary’s national presidential campaign manager John Podesta, is a super lobbyist who took huge money from the Russians in order to end U.S. government sanctions against Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank.

    Not only did the brother of Hillary’s campaign manager take huge money from the Russians to represent a foreign government’s biggest bank, but his firm accepted more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it from foreign governments.

    If Democrats want congressional investigations into Russian connections, I say we give them major investigations. Let’s start with Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and his brother Tony.

    Why Hillary herself, you ask? I’ve been publicly talking about this story for many years. The Clinton Foundation was from the start a bribery and extortion racket set up by the former president of the United States and his wife, the secretary of state. They didn’t just talk to Russians or other foreign governments and foreign leaders. They accepted massive bribes, disguised as “charitable donations.”
