Breaking: Moscow to ban US from using Russian rocket engines for military launches
RT ^ | 5-13-2014 | RT

Posted on 05/13/2014 6:56:45 AM PDT by tcrlaf

Moscow is banning Washington from using Russian-made rocket engines, which the US has used to deliver its military satellites into orbit, said Russia’s Deputy PM, Dmitry Rogozin, who is in charge of space and defense industries.

According to Rogozin, Russia is also halting the operation of all American GPS stations on its territory from June 1.

You knew this was coming, if Obama kept pushing sanctions. And just after yesterday's news that the Obama Administration was looking to but more engines from Russia.

The next step is to ban American Astronauts from Russian Spacecraft.

In other News, Nasa's new, Obama-mandated, concentration on Muslem Outreach and Global Warming is working out well. For Russia.....

I am myself not familiar with “RT” as a news source.

What is this source please?

The US buying military related stuff from Russian doesn’t sound like a great idea.

Obambi is okay with this. He’s been on record wanting to reduce America’s ability to make war. He has opposed new weapons development, opposed the existence of a nuclear arsenal, and could be expected to be against a “militarization of space”.

This is a STRATEGIC move, that directly effects our ability to launch spy satellites over “trouble spots”. And they directly mention the GPS system, which is what many of our latest high-tech weapons, like drones, require for targeting.

Yeah, and he also instituted the historic "no Space Shuttle for US until Kenya and Botswana also have a Space Shuttle" policy.

All part of the plan. Obama wanted geopolitical parity and now he’s getting it. I’m guessing he has a WWI fetish.

~So why are we using Russian rocket engines to begin with?~

These are more efficient and reliable but I think it won’t take long to replace with American technology.
As for GPS it is huge. It would reduce an accuracy of the system beyond required for military use.

That was an honest question, and I will give a 100% honest answer.

I do not trust our media, and I likewise do not trust Russia’s media.

They are both propaganda elements, of their respective governments.

It is really sad, but we can not trust anyone it seems.

I would however like to see another source for this news, before I decide about this news.

IMO, Russia is preparing for a full-blown economic war against the United States and Europe.

They know Europe is vunerable, Obama and the Minions are incompetent, and that we can’t support Europe forever. The gas/oil deal with China to be signed next week gives Russia TONS of breathing room from sanctions.

News Headlines frommthe last 24 hours:

-Russia Will Cut All Gas Supplies to Ukraine On June 3rd, If No Payment Made

-Russia bans police, emergency and military employees from traveling abroad

Another headline that backs up my suspicion about Economic War.

-Russia’s third largest bank moves money from Europe to Moscow for safe keeping

Gazprombank transferred client funds from Belgium and Luxembourg back to home turf, to protect against any future sanctions.

The securities were moved from Euroclear Bank (Brussels) and Clearstream Banking (Luxembourg) to the Russian Central Depository at the end of April.

The move is intended to protect customers from any forthcoming sanctions and prevent a situation where clients’ funds are frozen, the statement on the website said.

“The transfer was done to prevent possible restrictions on transactions of customers’ assets that are kept in international deposits and settlement systems,” it stated. In preparation for sanctions, in March, the bank moved nearly $7 billion to Russia’s Central Bank for safe keeping.

If the Russians and Chinese suppliers cut off our military equipment, the USA will have to surrender. That’s what happens when pacifist Democrats and globalist Republicans screw around with the country’s defense. We are doomed.

“So why are we using Russian rocket engines to begin with?”

The same reason that we shut down the Shuttle program and are now paying the Russians to send OUR astronauts up - Agenda 21.

Agenda 21- put thousands of Americans out of work and send billions of $$ to other countries = the A21 goal of re-distribution of wealth.

Shut down the American fishing industry, import over 90% of our seafood, export over $12 billion in the trade deficit.

Put the American cattleman out of business, import meat.

Shut down or severely restrict domestic energy production.

Obama: no support for Christians in Sudan, no support for people being massacred in Africa (not Nigeria, not Rwanda, just a massacre in a little African country about two years ago, so it didn't matter to Obama), etc.

Obama: he cares about Libya (Quaddafi was on his way to nationalizing all oil reserves) and Egypt (Muslim Brotherhood!)
