ARGENTINA LAUNCHES SATELLITE

This is a really interesting article to me for two reasons. But first, let me get the thank you out of the way. Ms. K.M., a regular reader and contributor of articles here, sent me this one with the warning that the "tone" of the article would be rather obvious. Well, indeed, that's the first interesting thing about the article, the tone, which you'll immediately encounter (if be unable to digest). The second interesting thing is the news story itself, and its implications, which seem to escape the globaloney rhetorical clouds of gas and steam in which the news is "reported":

Kirchner’s Nationalism Infects Argentina, Invades Outer Space

So let's deal, briefly, with the odor emanating from the steam and gas with which the article was launched (doubtless in a fit of "international community and a 'spirit of cooperation'").

President Fernandez de Kirchner, you'll recall, gave an impassioned speech before the UN general assembly recently, in which her determination to defend her country's economic interests against rapacious American hedge funds (and for that matter, corrupt judges), was readily apparent. So note the rhetoric here: nationalism - which in President Kirchner's case I take to mean pride in one's national culture and achievements - is to be interpreted as some form of "machismo" and even as a disease, an infection, which President Kirchner is apparently launching into space. It is even a "circus" and inevitably a sign of that hated "s" word, "socialism". Granted, Argentina is up to its high rises in socialism. But once again one sees that for the modern western practitioner of globaloneyism, the only thing that matters is money and "international capitalism"; national pride, culture, achievement, count for nothing. Hence, the long litany of "non-Argentine" companies involved in the launch of the satellite. The pathetic (and bathetic) depths to which the commentator goes to paint Ms. Kirchner as some sort of neo-papal or neo-monarchist is truly mind-boggling; for besides pointing out that she uses "we", he might well have indicted numerous recent Amerikan presidents for the same purple-robed prose (and in their case, they probably really meant it as such). And lets not forget that according to the current incumbent, in a fit of non-internationalist rhetoric, the USA is "the indispensable nation." No group-think globaloney claptrap there.

Ok... I grant you, I'm nitpicking. He wasn't writing about Amerikan satellite launches on Russian rockets with components made in France, Japan, and Italy, but about Argentine ones.

Now on to the real story here. Argentina launched a communications satellite, the import of which the author manages to skate entirely by, as if he were dancing a gallop in the palaces of 19th century Vienna, oblivious to the rumblings of the collapse of the Glorious Great Polyglot Internationalist Experiment That Was Austria-Hungary(think of it as the First European Union, folks):

“Along with the president of 40 million Argentineans, the entire country participates in the historic launch of the ArSat-1 satellite that furthers the effort of satellite sovereignty,” the commentator announced as the broadcast began." (Emphasis added)

That is the real story here, and it's one I've been predicting for some time. If the BRICSA nations are to successfully challenge dollar-euro hegemony, they will need a system of international financial clearing. And to have their own system of international financial clearing, they must have space assets to make it possible, and that means satellites. Long ago I predicted that we would have to watch the BRICSA nations (and for that matter, the BRICSA-want-to-be nations, like Argentina), and for increases of their own independent satellite (and space defense) capability.

President Fernandez de Kirchner knows the game, and she is signalling yet again to London, Wall Street, and Washington, that she intends to play it. India, Brazil, and South Africa will not be far behind.

The next step to watch for? I suspect one must watch two things here: (1) BRICSA pressure to demilitarize space and prohibit its weaponization, amid a campaign for full disclosure by the West of any current space-based or ground based satellite defense systems. Of course, they won't get that, so the next thing to watch for would be (2) A BRICSA policy pronouncement about space defenses and cooperation in space defense.

And Argentina will probably be part of both discussions.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Seems like Argentina has had some “help” in going into space “me thinks”. Now where would they get help from?, well there was a bunch of guys down there in the 40′ and 50′ who knew something about rockets and they seemed to be pretty good at it.
    As long as the anglosphere PUSHES, the BRICSA will push back and space is the new frontier, so don’t cry for me Argentina, we are going places and nobody is going to stop us [see UN speech] for the finger pointing to the “NORTH”.

  2. How dare the CSA complain about Argentina space program. They ignored their own space pioneer Robert Goddard and launch their space program with V-2 they captured from the Third Reich. And they used NAZI scientist to boot remember Operation Paperclip. If they had contracted for the use of the Soviet launch rocket the Energia they might still be flying the Space Shuttle. Then they nickel and dimed it’s successor to death to support their war economy. By the way it’s President Christina de Kirchner not Fernandez her late husband.

    News Flash! ISIS announces space capabilities. Watch out Argentina. It seems ISIS intends on taking their jihad into space. They have recently announced they are working on their own rockets. They are very crude and dangerous but with a bountiful supply of fuel for combustion and no shortage of suicidal pilots, they will continue to launch their rockets until one successfully makes it into space. Currently, the western powers are allowing ISIS to launch their rockets because the mortality rate is so high the project is depleting a large number of jihadists. Moreover, because they are using gasoline for their rocket fuel, the amounts necessary for take off is so large it is stabilizing global oil prices. (Although there are calls from Exxon-Mobile for NASA to supply ISIS with real rocket fuel so the global oil prices can continue to plummet allowing Exxon-Mobile to buy up all the small, independent North American oil and gas companies currently being punished by the falling fuel prices. The neo-cons have also called on NASA and the Pentagon to supply ISIS with rocket fuel in their scheme to destroy the Russian economy with tumbling oil prices and have announced that Israel will supply ISIS with rocket fuel at the US taxpayers’ expense, if Obamma refuses).

    Once in space, ISIS has plans to destroy all infidel satellites except those of the Great Satan, the United States. It is believed by western intelligence analysts that ISIS is so confident now, they would prefer that the United States see their every move, confident that the US can no longer stop the Islamic State from rising to supremacy. In a sense, they want to flaunt their actions to the all-seeing satellite eye of the United States. Moreover, it is believed that ISIS fully intends on commandeering all US space technology once then anchluss with Israel is complete, excuse me, I mean once the US prison population rises up and declares the United States part of the Islamic Republic. With all US space based weapons and satellite technology under the command of the Islamic State, ISIS will then not only be in charge of all financial clearing on planet Earth, but also be able to punish those infidel nations that refuse to convert to Islamic noahidism. Once this is complete, ISIS will then bring their jihad to the far reaches of the galaxy (that is, after they figure out how to get around the quarantine that won’t allow kohanims in space).

    The second course of action after destroying all BRICSA satellites: ISIS will dock at the International space station and behead everyone on board and then show the video on youtube. And then they will fly to the Moon where they will declare it property of the Islamic State and will enshrine a copy of the Koran on the Moon’s surface alongside (or under) the copy of the Talmud soon to be placed their as well. Any technology or artifacts on the Moon which are not the property of the Great Satan will be blown up. This will be followed by an excursion to that ancient satellite which has been orbiting Earth long before the Americans and Russians got into space. It is believed by some former and current residents of Babylon that this satellite (brand name Y.A.H.W.E.H.) may very well house Allah himself. If that is determined to be the case, then Mecca can safely be destroyed along with the Dome of the Rock and all other important Muslim shrines because they would no longer be necessary and all prays could then safely be directed skyward to Allah’s satellite abode instead.

    Meanwhile back on Earth, ISIS has changed its name to the Islamic State Republic and continues to rampage through the Middle East seizing as much Arab land as possible. When this mission is complete, the ISR will then change their name once again to the Islamic State Republic of Arab Lands or ISRAL for short. They will then take their murderous, land grabbing roadshow to Egypt and will attempt to stretch their empire all the way from the Tigris to the Euphrates. Once accomplished and Egypt is subjugated, ISRAL will change its name once again to the Islamic State Republic of Arab and Egyptian Lands or ISRAEL for short. The UN, in an effort to pacify the new ISRAEL once and for all, will allow their leadership to be headquartered in Jerusalem with the other dwindling world religions so long as they become incorporated, accept the UN’s new religious mandates (based on the old noahide laws) and drop the divisive words Islamic from their title. Once agreed, the former ISIS would be known as the Incorporated State Republic of Arab and Egyptian Lands (ISRAEL). Headquarters: 666 Chabad Lubavitch Boulevard. Jerusalem.

    1. Brilliant as usual, Frankie. Brilliant! I was hoping to see pb&j worked in there as well though.

      1. I lol’d. can’t see them being permitted by the Great Satan to control the Pyramids tho. Too many secrets not publically known behind those newly erected walls. Wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if either power’s goal is attempting to turn it on.

    2. Frankie, you forgot to mention there is an Isis member under every bed just waiting to pounce. LOL ….

  4. Do they expect argentinians not to be proud of this giant step into the 21st century for the country. I think people in 1st world countries forget how exciting it was for the masses when we first began our space odessey. I even bought the record telstar when the satellite first was sent into orbit,boring today but man it was something to dream about back then. Although I laugh to myself now at what was so amazing back then but I then remember the optimism and hope it gave all of us,sadly a nice thing we’ve lost , simple as it now seems it was. I hope politically motivated writers like this don’t spoil this launch of a country’s imagination into space and all it will inspire in the argentinian’s future generations.
