U.S. General Claims Russia Poses Threat to America’s Space Capabilities

June 6, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “This follows the Russian Foreign Ministry underscoring in April that Moscow is ready and willing to hold a full-fledged dialogue with any country in order to prevent militarisation of outer space.

Air Force General John Raymond, who has been nominated to lead the US Space Command, has claimed that the armed forces of Russia and China are rapidly developing their space capabilities, while the US military’s operational advantages in this sector are shrinking.

‘We no longer have the luxury of operating in a peaceful, benign domain. And we no longer have the luxury of treating space superiority as a given,’ Raymond noted in his written questions posed by lawmakers during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing to consider his nomination.

He claimed that Russia and China have managed to strengthen their space capabilities over the past few years mainly by ‘watching how the United States has integrated its [space] capacities into its military operations’.

‘The US military relies on space operations in some capacity for nearly everything it does, from GPS navigation to communications to guiding weapons to specific targets,’ Raymond added…”  (Luke 21:25 – 28; 31, and 32: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh…So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.”)
