Europe Looking to be a Major Player in Space by the end of 2011


The Europeans are moving forward in space technology:

European Space Agency predicts European space revolution
Defence Web – Jan 18, 2011

The European Space Agency will add two new types of satellite launch vehicle to its rocket fleet in a move it says will revolutionise the European space launch industry with an increase in launch capacity. As a result, its Arianespace arm, which launches half the world’s commercial satellites, is preparing for an exceptionally busy year.

Having three rockets to launch satellites means the European Space Agency (ESA) has greater flexibility in deciding which rocket will be the best for its payloads. This will also widen its operational menu, leading to more launches. Indeed, after all three rockets become operational in the second half of the year, the ESA could be conducting at least one launch a month.

At a press conference last week, ESA head Jean-Jacques Dordain said that 2011 is be the year of the launchers. “By the end of 2011 the ESA will not look like it does today. It is a revolution for Europe,” he said…

Europe’s Galileo system, which is a rival to the United States’ Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite constellation. The first Galileo launch will take place some time between August 15 and September 15, according to the ESA.

Galileo is Europe’s answer to the USA’s Global Positioning System (GPS).   Not only will it rival GPS, the US government has actually agreed to rely on the more technologically-advanced and more comprehensive (once it is fully operational) Galileo for part of it military defense.  This is dangerous and will result in the USA being vulnerable to being taken over militarily.

Wikileaks had an unusual comment about Galileo:

Wikileaks: ‘Galileo boss’ Smutny removed over cable row

BBC – Jan 17, 2011

OHB-System’s Berry Smutny was reported in a cable to have told US diplomats that Europe’s Galileo satellite-navigation project was a “stupid idea”.

The cable, which was published by the Norwegian daily Aftenposten last Thursday, quoted the OHB-System chief as saying, “I think Galileo is a stupid idea that primarily serves French interests”, and, in particular, French military interests.

I would add that it is more than the French military that is interested in Galileo.  In the middle of 2008, the EU funded Galileo for its military applications (EU Approves Galileo For Military Use), and not just for the French.

Europe is moving forward with its space plans and few in the USA seem to realize that when it gets enough power, the USA will lose all of its.

Because of various problems, the USA announced several months back that it would link to Galileo for some of its military needs.

This, as I reported at the time (see USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected), is dangerous.  But I expected it.

Notice that page 85 of my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect states the following:

In 2013, the Europeans are planning on having their own global positioning system (GPS), called Galileo, available for military applications.  This will allow the Europeans to track the world and attack others without relying on the U.S.A.’s GPS.  This will be the first time in the 21st century that Europeans will be able to have that type of independent military capability.

Furthermore, according to a 2009 report from the U.S. government, the U.S. Air Force may have to start relying on the European Galileo system (at least to a degree) beginning in 2013, as the U.S. GPS capabilities are expected to deteriorate by then (other problems are also appearing in the newer U.S. satellites). Because the Europeans will be able to control Galileo, they will also likely be capable of derailing certain sophisticated U.S. military applications.  This will give the Europeans a unique defensive (as well as offensive) capability that no others on the planet will have.

When I wrote that, the U.S. Air Force denied that there was such a problem.

Further notice that page 147 of my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warned of the following:

Because of domestic economic concerns and international pressures, Barack Obama is shifting priorities away from defense spending, while encouraging the Europeans to increase their military might.  This will help lead to the destruction of the United States, when the Europeans are ready and the U.S.A. is not.

Sadly, this is happening right now.

Linking up with Galileo puts the USA at major risk of not being able to launch an effective counter-strike if the EU attacks the USA.  Do Americans not remember that the wars in Kuwait and Iraq were waged first by the USA having vastly superior air/space systems?  And now the USA’s financial mess is leading the USA to rely on other nations for part of this capability.  The world is changing and the USA is losing its military supremacy.  And top powers that lose their military supremacy have historically been taken over by others.  Yes, this satellite matter is that serious.

If you have not already done so, please get my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.  Compare what it teaches with the Bible.  Compare what it teaches with what is happening in the world.  World events have already aligned with at least 14 predictions that the book documents.

You do not have to be one who will be confused in these trying times.

For those with mailing issues or in a hurry, the book is also available electronically.  Here are the electronic links:

2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect (English)
2012 y el surgimiento de la secta secreta (Spanish)
2012 und das Auftreten der geheimen Sekte (German)
2012 e o Surgimento da Seita Secreta (Portuguese Edition)

The book has long also been available from in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and German, and its Kindle version in English. It is also now available from Barnes and Noble .com at the following title links 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, 2012 Y El Surgimiento De La Secta Secreta, and 2012 Und Das Auftreten Der Geheimen Sekte.

The 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect book has more details, more prophecies, and is quite a bit a lot longer (about 384 pages in English) than my online article on 2012.  To order a hard copy, simply go to the link 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.
