US Fears of EU’s Galileo and China’s Space Military


As long-time readers of the COGwriter page are aware, I have long been concerned that the EU’s Galileo would be used against the US sometime after it comes online.  Notice that apparently certain American officials have had similar concerns:

EU awards Galileo satellite-navigation contracts
BBC Jan 7, 2010… Galileo should have been operational by now but the project has run into myriad technical, commercial and political obstacles, including early objections from the Americans who thought a rival system to GPS might be used to attack its armed forces.

EU’s delayed navigation system set for 2014
EU claims Galileo system could more than double the GPS coverage
AP – Jan 7, 2010

BRUSSELS – The European Union executive on Thursday gave Germany’s OHB System AG a (EURO)566 million ($810 million) contract to build the first 14 satellites for the EU’s new space-based navigation system Galileo.

The executive said that means the much-delayed rival to GPS should begin operating in 2014.

The EU has claimed Galileo will be technologically superior to the U.S. Global Positioning System

So, it is now being recognized that sometime next decade, the EU will have a technologically superior “GPS” system that could be a threat to the USA militarily.  I believe that if the right circumstances are in place, that the EU will take advantage of that superiority.

Furthermore, the USA is being distracted somewhat by China as its military program is perceived as a threat to the USA’s superiority:

Chinese Buildup Of Cyber, Space Tools Worries U.S.

Defense News – Jan 13, 2010

…Senior U.S. officials told a House panel on Jan. 13 that China continues modernizing its missile, naval and fighter aircraft arsenals at a rapid rate, but they raised new concerns about the Asian giant’s efforts to develop new offensive cyber and space assets.

Since the USA is basically broke, it cannot focus on being ahead of both China and the EU.  This will give the EU an edge as relatively few believe it will be a threat.  Yet, the Bible (Isaiah 10) suggests that while it does not normally want to destroy, that it will.

The world is changing and the USA is losing dominance.
