According to British media reports, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said that as part of the most comprehensive defense assessment since the cold war, Britain will strengthen its ability to resist the threats from China and Russia in space.
on July 25, the Daily Telegraph website published an article entitled “we will put space at the core of British Defense” by British Secretary of defense Ben Wallace, saying that at the center of the new epidemic storm, the tenacity of the British Defense Department has emerged again. The brave medical staff of the NHS do fight at the forefront, but the British armed forces are behind them – airlifting supplies to hospitals or providing military planners to government departments.
according to the article, the epidemic did not frighten or distract the British enemy. The growing threat to the UK has not disappeared, “which reminds me that we have to be prepared for possible crises.”.
the article also said, “today, we have been dealing with the epidemic. Tomorrow, we may have to deal with high-level cyber attacks or chemical weapons attacks. “.
the article argues that today’s world is quite different from the one known by the author as an active soldier at the end of the cold war. The world is advancing at an unprecedented speed, and Britain’s national defense must move with it. Britain’s enemies will go further, deeper and higher. The binary opposition between peace and war has disappeared.
the article points out that after this assessment, the British Ministry of defense will rise to be an organization focusing on responding to threats. It will abandon what the British army has adapted to in recent decades and transform it to carry out more operations in the latest fields, such as space, Internet and seabed.
the article emphasizes that this will be a new generation of national defense — the army will be ready to deal with repeated global struggles, be prepared for endless campaigns, and have the ability to switch between operation and combat. As traditional conflicts change, and networks and data become battlefields, the British army must overcome our enemies through greater technological advantages and a strong focus on innovation. National defense is of great value to industry, and if it is focused correctly, it will bring opportunities in the fields of employment, skills and exports.
the article concludes that in the coming year, Britain will build a modern, integrated and more tenacious armed force – including regular army, reserve force, various experts and unconventional departments. Make sure that no matter what lies ahead, the British army of the future has a way to deal with it.
according to the Daily Telegraph website on July 25, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said that as part of the most comprehensive defense assessment since the cold war, Britain will strengthen its ability to resist the threats from China and Russia in space.
Wallace claimed that the comprehensive defense assessment report would “shift the focus of the Department of defense from” conventional warfare “, and that the Department of defense would” adjust to carry out more operations in the latest fields, such as space, network and seabed. “. The report will be presented to Prime Minister Boris next year.
earlier, members warned that a weapon that was said to have been launched from a Russian satellite earlier this month could “paralyze” the British system. Russia denounces this as “political propaganda.”.
will Whitehorn, President of the British Air Trade Association, warned on the 25th that launching missiles from satellites could lead to “the end of space.”. “If you do launch to other satellites, space will quickly become a place full of shrapnel, and you can imagine that it will be the end of space,” he said on Radio 4’s “today” program
the report also quoted former deputy chief of defense general Simon mayor as saying on July 25 when talking about Russia’s move: “this is very dangerous, because both sides may misjudge.” He urged Britain to oppose the development of anti satellite weapons, saying: “as a result, every country on earth will be involved in some kind of destructive space confrontation, because we are very dependent on satellites and will continue to rely on them.”
