CHINESE DEATH STAR: THE MOON CITED AS THE PERFECT LAUNCH PAD FOR BALLISTIC MISSILES

The Washington Times on December 12, 2013, reported that the Chinese may have found a practical use for the moon: as a Death Star for the People’s Liberation Army. Excerpts below:

After the recent successful launch of China’s Long March-3B rocket, which carried a lunar rover, a defense expert told the Beijing Times that the moon would be an ideal launching pad for ballistic weapons, the Want China Times reported. Since the moon is the Earth’s natural satellite, weaponizing the celestial body would make its lethality even more versatile.

The rover is scheduled to touch down on a volcanic crater known as Sinus Iridum on Dec. 14, the Daily Mail reported.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has made no secret of his desire to establish China as one of the world’s dominant players in space.
