UNBELIEVABLE: China Now Wants To Annex… SPACE!

(Republican Insider) – Just when you think you’ve heard it all, China, along with Russia, partners up to start yet another space race, only this time the stakes are actual parts of the solar system itself. I know what you’re thinking. This sounds like the beginning of a science-fiction story. You know the old saying, “truth is stranger than fiction,” right? Here’s your proof.

According to the Gatestone Institute, China is collaborating with Russia in order to establish a base on the moon. If they are successful in building the very first establishment on the moon’s surface, the People’s Republic of China would hinder the ability of other countries to land there and establish their own bases. In fact, they want to annex entire areas of the solar system.

“As Richard Fisher of the International Assessment and Strategy Center pointed out to this author, Chinese control of the moon would confer control of Cis-Lunar space, the portion of space between the Earth and the moon. Control of Cis-Lunar space would give a country the ability to shoot down or otherwise disable deep-space satellites, which are essential for, among other things, the early warning of ballistic missile attacks,” the report says.

“Beijing and Moscow understand all this. In 2021, Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency and the China National Space Administration agreed to build a shared moon base, to be named the International Lunar Research Station,” it continues.

“Today, we are seriously considering a project to deliver to the moon and mount a power reactor there jointly with our Chinese partners somewhere between 2033 and 2035,” Yury Borisov, the CEO of Roscosmos, commented back on March 5th to TASS.

Borisov later explained that China and Russia are considering the use of nuclear energy to power the base because solar panels would not produce adequate energy for the installation. Both nations, he stated, will establish the reactor “without the presence of humans,” going on to reveal they are “almost ready.”

I’m not a genius or space expert, but I have a feeling that messing around with the moon is a bad idea. And by that I’m talking about the use of nuclear energy. What happens if it goes boom? These are things I never thought I’d have to worry about in my lifetime, but thanks to China, here we are.

“China and Russia plan to build their station at the moon’s coveted south pole, which is in constant shade. Chinese efforts to build the base have been determined and successful. China has had a moon presence since 2013, when Chang’e 3 put both a lander and rover on the surface. Chang’e 4, which landed on the moon’s far side in January 2019, has been gathering data, presumably for a permanent location,” the article says. “Moreover, the country this month announced it will launch large, reusable rockets, built by state-owned China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp., in 2025 and 2026.”

Last spring, China announced they would be putting a person on the moon by 2030.

“The universe is an ocean, the moon is the Diaoyu Islands, Mars is Huangyan Island,” Ye Peijian declared back in 2017, making a reference to features in the East China and South China Seas. “If we don’t go there now even though we’re capable of doing so, then we will be blamed by our descendants. If others go there, then they will take over, and you won’t be able to go even if you want to.”

Ye, who served as the head of the lunar program at the time, basically issued a warning because he was comparing the closest space bodies to islands and outcroppings that Beijing claims as sovereign territory. In other words, China is planning to prevent others from going to the moon if it can do so.

“At the south pole, the lunar ice—water—can be used to both hydrate thirsty Chinese taikonauts and Russian cosmonauts and be converted into rocket fuel for missions to Mars,” Brandon Weichert, the author of Winning Space: How America Remains a Superpower, said in remarks provided to Gatestone.

“By capitalizing on this pristine real estate on the moon, China would dominate the most resource-rich, human-friendly region before the Americans could even tie on their space boots,” he added. “It would be akin to staking out all the water holes in the desert.”

The Artemis program, led by America, is also considering a base at the south pole of the moon. Unfortunately, the time tables for the mission continue to be pushed back. At this point, it might be critical for NASA to get this going so we can stop China and Russia from establishing a cosmic foothold that could come back to haunt us in big, big ways.

One of the major concerns with allowing China to have a base at the moon’s south pole is that this strategic location would enable China the ability to start dominating other planets in the solar system too.

“Article II of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty prohibits ‘national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means,’ but when has a treaty obligation ever stopped the People’s Republic from doing whatever it wants?” the piece concludes.
