Make no mistake, as China and other countries deploy "stalker" satellites capable of maneuvering to targets, and of actual attack on space-based resources, the "space battlecruiser" won't be far behind. As I and others have argued for some time, with commerce increasingly based in space, the militarization and weaponization of space is inevitable.
But I want to "flip" the approach here, and concentrate less on the "space force" side of this story and more on the 5g aspect of it, for I've long suspect - as have many of you - that there's a hidden military aspect to the 5G technology, and that the latter is itself a military asset. Why? Well, consider those "dead bird" stories once again, and my rather speculative explanation for them: with the right kind of interferometry, one might be able to create a combined signal, based on several signals, that creates a sort of "template" over a region, at a particular height from ground level to space itself perhaps, which combined signal can literally and instantly "turn off" the bio-electrical systems of organisms, such as birds. If it can do that, there there are other potential uses as well: mind manipulation, health stimulation (or the reverse), and so on.
Interferometry in its turn requires the use of more than one broadcast antenna, but rather, several. And this, of course, is what one sees with 5G: a multitude of antennae.
So the "flip" side of this story appears to be the implication that 5G is itself a military resource, and not merely a corporate or "civilian one." The key to this point of view - in my high octane speculations - is the concern the article expresses for securing the whole space/5G "platform" from cyber warfare, i.e., from hacking. If such capabilities can be imagined for the network, then similarly, those capabilities could literally be hacked or "turned on" (or "off") by someone else, and a nation's population, or a segment of it, could literally be "hacked" or weaponized to act counter to that nation's policy.
And with that, we have another implication that, notably, neither this article nor for that matter all the chatter about the space force has mentioned. Indeed, the vast majority of that chatter has been about the Space Force's defensive role in protecting those assets and securing there communications precisely from threats such as I've outlined above. But rest assured, there's an "offensive" mission as well, and that consists precisely in what I've outlined: how to neutralize, or indeed, take over, a hostile nation's space assets and 5G networks.
