What are the Russians up to?

Possibility has been raised that Russians may be pre-positioning weapons in space to disrupt US communication or early warning satellites.

Imagine the advantage if an adversary could knock out communications or blind early warning systems prior to attack.

Imagine the confusion on the ground if the inflicted space-based "blindness" happened in concert with cyber-attacks impacting other infrastructure on the ground.

Time to dust off some of those old Civil Defense pamphlets?

  1. Hey Doug;

    I actually worry more about the Chinese than the Russians. Putin is trying to talk big but Russia has more problems than China does.
