China's space program poses no threat to US

"US military concerns about possible 'threats' coming from a Chinese-run space station in Argentina which Beijing used recently to land a probe on the far side of the moon are completely bogus and not worthy of consideration," Etler said. A top US military commander told Congress on Thursday that China was expanding its sphere of influence into South America. Etler said the report against China was false and the US military ought to know better than making such "unfounded" claims.  “’Fears voiced by senior US military officials that “China can use the remote station, which is located in the deserts of Patagonia, to shoot down American and allied satellites,’ are unfounded and those making such claims know better,” he said.   Etler said the Chinese satellite station in Argentina was similar to the stations set up by the US in other countries across the globe. “The Chinese facility is no different from similar stations administered by NASA in Madrid, Spain and Canberra, Australia. Such deep space communications complexes are an integral part of space exploration and allow for unbroken transmissions between the Earth and space probes,” he said. Etler went on to explain that the northern and southern hemispheres link different parts of the cosmos due to the Earth’s spin and rotation, and without communications centers in both hemispheres space exploration would be impossible. He noted that senior US military operatives know this technicality full well. "Like a thief crying stop thief, the US merely wants to cast aspersions on China’s space program to create roadblocks by arousing unnecessary suspicions about their motives," he said. Etler added that the US has a long history of trying to sabotage China’s space program. “While forging space cooperation with first the Soviet Union, and then its successor the Russian Federation, the US refused to allow Chinese participation in the International Space Station because of fictitious ‘national security’ concerns,” he said. Etler said after China's notable advancements, the US now wants to start space cooperation with China. "China which is forever patient with the duplicitous actions of the US is open to collaboration with the US. It is already cooperating with the Russian and European space agencies, to everyone’s benefit. It is not China which is a 'threat' to the peaceful use of space, but the aggressive and belligerent US which pulls out all stops to bully and beleaguer anyone who stands in their way of domination, in space as on Earth," he concluded.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
