US and Britain: UN should ban Zircons, Daggers and Avant-gardesAnglo-Saxons do not know what to do with Russian hypersound
A military expert, Alexei Leonkov , speaking on Zvezda TV channel, said that the United States would take all measures to prevent the use of hypersonic weapons in the world. This is due to the fact that Russia and China have made a huge leap in hypersonic technology. There are already practical results. But American developments in this area of military technology are, we can say, in their infancy.
A maneuvering avant-garde hypersonic block and Dagger and X-32 air-launched missiles have already been put into service in Russia. On the approach of anti-ship missile "Zircon". China also created a workable hypersonic DF-ZF unit, which are equipped with ballistic missiles. In the US, the work is at the stage of scientific research.
Leonkov, quoted by the portal Avia.pro, said on the TV show: “The Americans have long said that they have a hypersonic weapon. They conducted experiments. But it seems to me that those experiments were made with a certain intent. First, a lot of money was spent on them. All of them ended with one or two starts ...
They are now holding a contest in order to find a developer who will make the leading edge of the wing for hypersonic flights so that it can withstand high temperatures and high loads. They are doing it just now, and we have passed this stage 30 years ago. We have come to real technology controlled hypersound. We have come, the Chinese have come, but they have nothing to do. "
At the same time, the Pentagon perfectly understands that the American armed forces have no means of protection against Russian hypersonic missiles. And not only understand, but also admit it. Speaking in the Senate a year ago, General of the Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces, John Heiten, said: “We do not have any protection that could withstand such a weapon against the United States. Let me remind you that Russia and China are continuing their research in the field of hypersonic capabilities. ” And then he made a completely monstrous statement: "We can only deliver a nuclear strike in response."
So the United States will seek, by hook or by crook, to seek a legislative ban on hypersonic weapons. Well, and when it appears at the Pentagon, according to the calculations of the Americans themselves, this can happen in the 30s, the United States will immediately "allow it." This strategy of behavior, based on hegemonic aspirations, implies the rupture of any treaties and agreements that have ceased to be beneficial to the States. This is the story of both the ABM Treaty and the INF Treaty.
The first psychological attacks on hypersonic weapons were undertaken in the summer of the year before last. Immediately after the successful testing of the Zircon, the initiative was expressed “from below”, that is, from the US satellites.
At the symposium of the Strategic Command of the US Armed Forces in Nebraska, the representative of the British Navy, Paul Berkan, said that the British military are closely watching what progress Russia has made in the field of hypersonic weapons. Both scientists and designers of Albion are not even able to get closer to the achievements of their Russian colleagues. And therefore, said Berkan, any hypersonic armament must "be governed by international norms and rules." That is - since we fail, it is necessary to tie Russia hand and foot.
In the autumn of the same year, American analysts from the American research center RAND (Research and Development) joined the mental attack. The organization is highly serious, conducting research in the interests of the US government on security issues on military-technical and strategic aspects. And quite financially prosperous, annually receiving a quarter-billion dollars from the government.
The logic of the report "Obstacle to the proliferation of hypersonic rockets" is as follows. Some of the owners of hypersonic weapons (of course, to whom) will want to distribute them to third world countries. And those who have acquired hypersonic rockets that cannot be intercepted will create the illusion of using them with impunity. But, of course, the answer will be overwhelming. And so the Third World War will begin.
Therefore, China, Russia and the United States should refuse to distribute not only finished hypersonic rockets, but also technologies and components, including engines, sensors, navigation systems, communications equipment, fuel. It is impossible to transfer, both free of charge and for money, even the tools for designing and modeling hypersonic weapons.
These three states must sit down at the negotiating table and sign a document preventing the "beginning of the Third World War."
Of course, mechanisms for monitoring the implementation of the agreement should be developed. And it was even proposed to elect France as the supreme arbiter. France, on the other hand, should involve other countries in signing the agreement.
But the most important and most expected conclusion is that the provisions set forth in the report “can become the basis for international discussions.” And this is a strong move. Because it is already possible to hang all the dogs of the State Department on Russia. Since she is conducting, together with India, the development of the BrahMos hypersonic missile.
And then a wide scope for activity. You can even create an international organization similar to the one that won the Nobel Peace Prize the year before last “for the struggle for the prohibition of nuclear weapons”. And call it the "International Organization against the Third World War." Well, or with Russia.
And this anti-hypersonic company, initiated by the States, has already spread quite far beyond the Pentagon’s offices and research centers that serve its interests. It came to discuss the problem at the UN. And in much more radical formulations. And it is quite clear that it is the United States that acts as a locomotive in lobbying this topic.
At the end of February, at the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, UN Secretary-General António Guterres spoke out on this issue quite definitely.
Initially, he worked out the American version regarding the White Helmets activity: “The key components of the international architecture in the field of arms control are crumbling. The continued use of chemical weapons without punishment for their actions leads to their proliferation. ”
Then the Secretary General began to talk about the most decisive steps that all relevant UN committees, as well as independent public organizations, should take. "Such steps should take into account regional challenges in the field of nuclear security, as well as technical developments, including in the field of cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and the so-called hypersonic weapon , which can be used to attack at unprecedented speeds," said the UN Secretary-General.
It is quite clear that the “most decisive steps” imply a legislative decision to ban hypersonic weapons. It is not yet ready, since only a fortnight has passed since the day of this historical speech. Not connected to the movement and public organizations. Still ahead.
Ahead is the extension or revision of the START-3 agreement, which expires in 2021. Understandably, relying on "public opinion", the UN, the United States will try to bring in the updated treaty and restrictions on hypersonic weapons.But something is not remembered that before the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the United States submitted to the League of Nations a proposal to ban nuclear weapons. Because "America is above all."
