Russia Threatens To Halt Critical Rocket Engine Exports To The U.S.

Russia Threatens To Halt Critical Rocket Engine Exports To The U.S.

Despite earlier reported hopes that Putin seeks a deal with Trump, as opposed to escalating tensions, it appears Russia is planniong to do just that.

 

Last Friday (the 13th), just before the US, UK and France launched 105 Tomahawk missiles at Syria, we noted  that as part of Russian countermeasures against US sanctions, it could halt titanium exports to the US, critical for the production of Boeing airplanes, which promptly sent Boeing’s stock lower.

 

As it turns out Russia has leverage not only over the biggest US exporter of airplanes and military equipment:  what piqued our interest, is the United States Department of Defense (DoD) dependency on Russian-manufactured rocket engines to launch military satellites (more…)

Little Rocket Man Wins the Round

Little Rocket Man Wins the Round

It would appear Kim Jong Un’s strategy has worked, and nuclear war has yet again been averted. Now, says Pat Buchanan, is the time to reconsider our longstanding obligation to defend South Korea.

By Patrick J. Buchanan

After a year in which he tested a hydrogen bomb and an ICBM, threatened to destroy the United States, and called President Trump “a dotard,” Kim Jong Un, at the gracious invitation of the president of South Korea, will be sending a skating team to the “Peace Olympics.”

An impressive year for Little Rocket Man.

Thus the most serious nuclear crisis since Nikita Khrushchev put missiles in Cuba appears to have abated. Welcome news, even if the confrontation with Pyongyang has probably only been postponed.

Still, we have (more…)

(Wes Vernon) – It says here, in an article by Washington Free Beacon’s Bill Gertz, that China has secretly been supplying missiles to North Korea, and has been bolstering its war-making ability, provided that North Korea “halt further nuclear tests.” So this means “Rocket Man,” who rules North Korea by starving his own people, gets to play with his toys as long as he doesn’t use them? …

SpaceX says it has found cause of rocket explosion and plans to fly again :: Stuff.co.nz

Elon Musk’s SpaceX said Monday that it has discovered the cause of a September 1 rocket explosion and plans to return to flight as soon as January 8.

The conclusions of the company’s investigation have yet to be approved by the US Federal Aviation Administration, and the agency has yet to provide it a license to launch. But SpaceX’s statement means that it has confidence that federal agencies will approve its remedies for the problem and that it will soon receive the green light.

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket exploded while being fuelled on a launch pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station ahead of an engine test firing earlier this year. No one was on board the rocket, and there were no injuries. But the blast touched off a massive fireball and caused extensive damage, including the loss of a commercial (more…)
