Russia, China, United States race to deploy ‘blazingly fast’ hypersonic weapons

  • In August 2018, high in the sky over northeastern China, the Xingkong-2 hypersonic cruise missile raced at Mach 6, or six times the speed of sound, bobbing and weaving through the atmosphere. This byproduct of the rapidly developing field of hypersonic weapons is merely one of at least three such missiles purportedly in China’s arsenal. Meanwhile, Russia and the United States are in the thick of developing hypersonic weapons of their own. At the heart of this technology, which is currently undefendable according to sources in the U.S. military, lies a wickedly simple engine, known as a scramjet. “Air-breathing” scramjets enable these weapons to expertly maneuver at a hypersonic pace—speeds of Mach 5 or greater—making them extremely difficult to track and neutralize. Their potential has led to what is essentially a modern “space race,” in which China, Russia, and the U.S. are jockeying to deploy accurate, highly functional hypersonic weapons.

                So.....The speaker knew practically all of the flaws/weaknesses of the US hypersonic arsenal but Chinese and Russian versions are flawless? Seriously??? Nice of him to show where his allegiance lie. For those that lament the fact that all of this money is being spent on R&D for technology used to kill other humans....Don't be so naive. Do you really think Russia and China are doing this just to counter the American threat? If the US were to one day disappear from the planet, the Russians and Chinese would destroy, in an effort to be the sole rule of the planet.

                                    How is it wrong in producing weapons especially to make your country more powerful and unbeatable. Those saying is wrong to manufacture weapons should sit down till they are taking by a surprise one day by another country that is when they will know the importance of being a powerful weapon master... I love weapons

                                        I'm sure China stole all of our R&D on the Hypersonic missile just like the F-35 and everything else because our military is awfully woefully unprepared for cyber security and i would bet millions china didnt have to look hard for top secrets for sale? This is why the death penalty for treason

China also has the DF-21D Anti Ship ballistic missile the US has no defence against. That makes the US navy an obsolete meaningless piece of weaponry today as they can't use any Carrier to attack any country armed with these ASM's today. Where the risk outweighs any potential gain or reward = Obsolete.

Except in every single thing they have ever created, none of it was ever up the quality of American made weapon systems. Every time the Russians come up with something new, we have the uncanny ability to make something to counter it that's generations better. They should stick to making vodka, it's the only thing they do in the world very well.

Lets talk about Jesus for a second, now, Jesus was a Hebrew or as most Christians want to point their fingers at other religions, he was a Jew. You mind telling me where this name "Jesus" came from? Not exactly a name used by Jewish people back then. In fact, it was never used to name a Jewish child at anytime when Christ was to be walking the earth. I know the answer... I am just wondering if you have intelligence or just the blind obedience that is taught to you.


                                                                                        Unless lying is something you easily do, I did not say Allah was the same as your god. Though many other religions do refer as there is only one god. Now I know there is a big confusion about god in the Christian religion so I will comment on that one later.


                                                                                        I personally have a relationship with several religions and I have seen the evil brought by each and every one of them. I find it ironic how Catholics point their fingers at Muslims and declare how their women are forced to dress. Yet, the hypocrites have nuns dress as they do. I like seeing the inconsistencies of religions, Christians and Catholics in particular are so very close yet so very different. Both pray to someone that isn't actually god, one prays to the mother of Christ and the other prays to Christ. That...is pretty odd to me.


                                                                                        Now... the Ten Commandments handed down by Jesus... oh wait it wasn't Jesus it was the Mother of Jesus... Opps... no it wasn't either of those two... It was GOD.
                                                                                        Commandment number 2 ... Thou shalt have no other gods before me.


                                                                                        Pretty plain speech, pretty much a command, being that it is one of the commandments of god. See where I am going? Especially since I mentioned god and all you talked about was Jesus? Like most that pray only to Jesus, you probably don't even have a clue as to the name of your god and never pray to him. That is just one of the odd things I find with Christians... pretty lost bunch to declare someone should read up on the subject.


                                                                                        The rest of the Ten Commandments, I wish I had a dollar for every Christian I have ever known to defile those and still go to church... I would never have to work again. Very confused religion surrounding the bible which is chopped full of untruths, bedtime stories with places and events that never took place or existed. Like I said though... you can believe how you like. Doesn't make me any difference what so ever unless it gets into my personal space or finds it's way out here. With either one I can tell you where you can go or voice my facts on the subject.

When you have a personal relationship with Jesus it changes everything bro don’t take my word try it for yourself Jesus said seek and ye shall find hes not a liar seek Jesus read the Bible and after a month come back and tell me i was wrong. but your probably lazy and its much easier to just say “no youre wrong” ✌️

People lie and make things up. Now I am not going to bash your religion, you are free to believe how you like. Personally, I am not going to go by something made up so people can feel good about their existence. You say god but it is a god that you have perceived in your head based on your religious teaching.
                                                                                        You think your god only belongs to your religion when in fact, that god is the same one prayed to by Muslims and many others. It's why the original Christian bible had tones not any different than the Quran. Many gods came before the Christian religion, Zeus, Apollo from Greek mythology, now here we are in modern times discussing a whole other mythology but it's still just something made up to explain how we got here. Conservative Republican's have always been backed by religious groups.
                                                                                        All the time they have pushed for destroying our environment, pushed for not helping people in need and pushed for people to not have a means to health care. Conservatives don't care how many children die due to lack of health care. Very Christian of those that support such a vial and wealth based political party. So basically, I don't care to hear about your misguided thoughts based off of an imaginary being judging our every function.

Read Jeremiah 50 and 51 its only a few pages that speaks about the future of america. We have prospered greatly as a country because this country was founded by true followers or Jesus Christ who wanged to escape the persecution. God has supported the USA but not anymore. We have turn our backs on the living God, kill babies, etc And now Gods judgment on America is coming
