Pentagon blamed an “anomaly”
This latest failure is big news across the world. Countries across the world are reporting on the Hypersonic missile failure in Hawaii. The Biden Administration has weakened the U.S. and the world knows it. The POTUS is himself viewed as weak and mentally ill. The United States has become the brunt of jokes across the world. The Pentagon blamed an “anomaly” as the reason why the U.S. hypersonic failed.
The CPS (Conventional Prompt Strike) Program is trying to develop missiles that travel at speeds of Mach 5 and higher. The Hypersonic was tested in Hawaii on Wednesday. The Department of Defense is saying,
“an anomaly occurred following ignition of the test asset.”https://www.thevigilantenews.com.au/news/us-hypersonic-missile-test-fails-the-pentagon-blamed-an-anomaly-following-ignition-for-the-misfire-in-hawaii-according-to-bloomberg/
News across the world reports that the U.S. is struggling to keep up with China and Russia. The Vigilante News reports the U.S. doesn’t have a modern system in service.
In October of 2021, was another failed test. A booster rocket failed. The booster rocket was not part of the weapon system.
MEHR News, Middle East reports the same as The Vigilante.
“the department remains confident that it is on track to field offensive and defensive hypersonic capabilities on target dates beginning in the early 2020s”.https://www.scmp.com/news/china/science/article/3183791/us-hypersonic-missile-fails-test-latest-setback-project
The SCMP reports the first test as the rocket never leaving the launch pad. They say the U.S. is pressured because China, Russia, and North Korea have moved ahead with missiles that evade interception. The missiles move Mach 5 or higher and deliver a nuclear warhead.
China has put a lot into their program. Last July they flew a Hypersonic weapon 25,000 miles in more than 100 minutes of flight. In January, North Korea tested 2 systems that traveled several hundred Kilometers.
Russia used a Hypersonic Missile, air to ground, on Ukraine.
“Adversaries do not have to meet the rigorous standards set under the US defence acquisition system or face public scrutiny over delays and failure.”https://www.scmp.com/news/china/science/article/3183791/us-hypersonic-missile-fails-test-latest-setback-project
China also says
“You recently called in the defence industrial community that were involved in the hypersonics development as to how we can speed that up,” Republican Representative Mike Turner of Ohio said. “We’re behind our adversaries.”
Without denying that, Austin said “we have to be careful” because “hypersonic is a capability, sir, but it’s not the only capability.” He added “I have engaged industry” to “make sure that they’re leaning into” hypersonic development.
The Eurasian Times
According to the Eurasian Times, these weapons are crucial for the U.S. to counter attacks from China and Russia. The U.S. Air Force had 3 previous failures testing these missiles. China had a successful launch a few days ago and Russia is working on a Hypersonic anti-ship missile.
We found nothing reported by the networks on this subject. Bloomberg and CNN both reported this. They are the only 2 we found from the U.S.. We don’t necessarily believe that Americans need to know details as to what our military does. Their job is to keep us safe. The military should keep some things secret. The rest of the world doesn’t need to know our capabilities.
Apparently the rest of the world knows our capabilities and our failures. It is plastered all over the news in the rest of the world. Why does the rest of the world know all this? How is this not a security risk? Why is our government reporting this for them to see? They seem to be broadcasting it everywhere, but here.
The whole point here is the amount of information other countries are reporting on our defense. Biden is a joke to other countries. They know Biden is weak. It is a little unnerving that the world is broadcasting our military failures. The comments on the foreign articles prove this.
