    China Poised to Kill US Spy Satellites?

    This is troubling:

    Beijing announced plans last week to build a high-frequency radar on the South Pole. Analysts say the radar could be used to disrupt U.S. intelligence satellites. . . National security analysts say the South Pole site, because of its remoteness, could be used by China to develop anti-satellite lasers capable of blinding or disrupting U.S. reconnaissance satellites, most of which pass over the pole. . . China's space program, unlike the U.S. space program, is directly related to Chinese military operations.(1)


    My question is why are we still giving China preferential trade status? The more we do business with them, the more money they will have to build better offensive weaponry. Considering China's actions in Tibet(2), and their very public and brazen promises that "the Chinese people and armed forces will resolutely and thoroughly crush [Taiwanese independence] at any cost,"(3) we should be viewing China as a real military threat... not trading with them.

    If China's imperialist history is not enough of a reason to view them as a threat, consider that "China is stepping up its overt and covert efforts to gather intelligence and technology in the United States."(4)

    Come on. How much more do you need? The People's Republic of China has conquered one sovereign nation; they have promised to conquer another one; and they are spying on us. What are the odds that the base on the South Pole has a purpose that is hostile to other countries (like the United States, for example)?

    "If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    --Samuel Adams
