Tesla CEO Elon Musk is everywhere these days.
Musk’s attempt to purchase Twitter made him one of the biggest players in tech.
But now Elon Musk got some bad news that no one saw coming.
The Communist Chinese are clearly preparing for war over the island province of Taiwan.
Back in 1949, the Chinese government fled to Taiwan following communist revolutionaries seizing control of the mainland.
Ever since then, the communists have viewed Taiwan as a province of China and vowed to one day reabsorb the island.
Under President Xi Jingping, the Communist Chinese appear to be moving pieces into place to launch a military invasion of Taiwan by 2027.
And part of the Communist Chinese’s preparations for war included attacking Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite system.
Starlink is a system of 2,400 satellite relays that beam high speed internet down to poor countries around the globe.
But it also has military implications, which is why the Communist Chinese are developing plans to knock out Starlink.
The Daily Mail reports:
Chinese military researchers have been drawing up plans to destroy Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite system should Beijing deem it a threat to Chinese national security.
A paper published last month stated that China needs to develop capabilities to track and monitor and if necessary destroy each and every Starlink satellite in orbit around the Earth.
Starlink is a satellite constellation system operated by Musk’s SpaceX company, which involves – at latest count – 2,400 satellite relays in low-earth orbit that can beam super highspeed internet data anywhere on the planet.
Musk signed a deal with the U.S. Department of Defense to use Starlink to develop technology to detect the launch of hypersonic missiles.
Both Communist China and Russia invested heavily in these super weapons that can strike any target on the globe in a matter of minutes.
Communist China and Russia both are currently ahead of the United States in terms of hypersonic missile technology.
If Communist China were to invade Taiwan, the first move would be bombing U.S. military bases in Guam and Japan to prevent America from deploying its full military might to defend the island.
But Communist Chinese war plans could also call for bombing U.S. naval bases in Pearl Harbor, Alaska, and San Diego.
The Communist Chinese would launch hypersonic missiles as part of any attack on U.S. bases located in America.
And taking out Elon Musk’s satellites may be a precursor to such an attack.
