DIA Director - "China preparing for space warfare"

Army Lt. Gen. Ronald L. Burgess, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, disclosed new details of China’s space weapons programs last week, including information regarding China’s anti-satellite missiles and cyber warfare capabilities.

Burgess stated in little-noticed written testimony prepared for an appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee that Beijing is developing missiles, electronic jammers, and lasers for use against satellites.

Much of the space warfare activity is being carried out under the guise of China’s supposedly non-military space program, he said.

It is clear that China is our “friend” only so long as they can profit from us, and use those profits to build up military power. How does that affect us on a personal level? It should motivate preppers to watch for unconventional type of warfare, including:

  • EMP strikes
  • Sat-comm attacks
  • Cyber-warfare directed at major corporations (where you IRAs are invested) and personal bank accounts (where you day-to-day is invested)

At some point, China and the US are going to face the possibility of immediately drawn swords. A potential for conflict, modeled on the Western Pacific situation in 1938, is not out of the question. When we no longer represent a serious market, when we are a threat to their expanding quest for resources, when their national aspirations call for enactment of plans in the waiting for 50 years – there will be trouble.

And that’s just with China. What about the others? Gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling, no?

Planning against these things is not out of line for a prepper, since our “worst case” scenarios deal with effects, rather than causes. The effects for differing events can be very similar. So, consider how these things could affect you, and if you are already prepping in some of those areas, great! If not, do the ususal:

  • Evaluate (situation and your stance)
  • Inventory (items and skills)
  • Adjust the overall plan (to suit)
  • Enact (get moving!)

Don’t forget to take advantage of isolated and unrelated opportunities to build up supplies, even if just for resale. Prepping is not a passive activity. It requires thought and action, overseen by constant review and adjustments.
