This article was published to tell the Chinese that not only do we know exactly what they are doing, but we overfly their airspace regularly and turn off their radars without their knowing it.
The Chicom ASAT test that has everybody scared is dimestore stuff, if what is in this article is true.
AW&ST shouldn't have run this story, imho.
Now, imagine what we can do to the Iranians.
Be Seeing You,
Very lucid point Sect, and totally agreed. They know what they are doing by letting this out. Th Chinese have long stated they are fearful of our technological advantage on them, this will help further the paranoia
this story was timed to tell China et al to be warned WHILE WE DO IRAN.
I wonder if there will ever again be a war where this kind of gadgetry can bring it to a defined end. Are we fighting a war that might have occurred 40 years ago?
Seems all wars these days end in insurgencies. This kind of stuff is of little value against un-uniformed personnel. And it seems no one on our side has the will to effectively put down an insurgency.
Please convince me that I'm too pessimistic. :(
