Hypersonic missiles with nuclear warheads are the most dangerous weapons in the world that will be used at some time

When one country believes in exceptionalism, every country will believe the same thing about themselves.

Hypersonic just means its harder to stop the missiles but if they saturate you with slower missiles loaded with nukes you're still fked. Guess who has the most?

Something to consider with the current Ukraine situation is that Putin can't fight a war on two fronts and survive. Putin and Xi put up a public front that they have some type of military defense "pact" against "the west", but that may not really exist. Putin's China "tell" was the Russian Vostok-2018 military exercises with 330,000 Russian troops on the Chinese border and only3,300 Chinese troops (never closer than 150km). Putin knows China wants the giant "free store" of Siberia and Central Asia along its border. If Ukraine is invaded Putin is leaving Russia totally defenseless against the ramping up of the Chinese military, who are going to eventually recover/reclaim central Asia and Siberia north of Mongolia and east of the Ob/Irtysh and Yenisei Rivers. When Putin starts something with the west and is weak, China will invade and protect aka, take, the land all the way to Slavic Russia without a single shot from Russia. Note below how the smiling Chinese cat is eyeballing the tasty fluttering Russian canary. Just saying…

China : hypersonic missile.
America: anti asteroid missile.
Russia: anti satellite missile.

The end of tanks, fighterjets, submarines, infantry.
It's about launching nuclear smart missile from space.

What a joke 🤣🤣 america losing in every Field sad but true 🙊🙈🙉

Here is an idea, why don't we , as a world, stop putting money and scientific minds into killing weapons that will lead to the destruction of all people and animals and plant life and focus our efforts on things that benefit us and our fellow nations. Or are we still learning a lesson of like 8000 years of war?

Indian hypersonic missiles use Russian engines. The Chinese engines are now superior to Russian ones. See the gap?

The USA and their biased media complain about AI + Space technology and hypersonic missiles because they are behind in it. If it was the other way around the USA and the media BBC CNN etc would all be telling us how great this technology was!!!!!!!
