General Mark Milley is now sounding the alarm about China’s recent successful test of a new hypersonic missile, calling it a ‘Sputnik Moment.’

As Bloomberg reports:

“What we saw was a very significant event of a test of a hypersonic weapon system. And it is very concerning,” General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said in an interview for “The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations” on Bloomberg Television. “I don’t know if it’s quite a Sputnik moment, but I think it’s very close to that. It has all of our attention.”

Milley’s comments are the most significant acknowledgment by a U.S. official of reports that China’s military conducted possibly two hypersonic weapons tests over the summer, including the launch into space of an orbiting hypersonic weapon capable of carrying a nuclear payload. The Financial Times first reported the tests, citing officials it didn’t name.

The next-generation technology, if perfected, could be used to send nuclear warheads over the South Pole and around American anti-missile systems in the northern hemisphere. Hypersonic weapons are normally defined as fast, low-flying and highly maneuverable weapons designed to be too quick and agile for traditional missile defense systems.

While Milley stopped short of declaring the weapons test on par with Sputnik — the pioneering 1957 satellite that gave the Soviet Union an early lead in the space race, shocking the U.S. — the comparison showed the depth of concern about Beijing’s work on hypersonic arms.

The CEO of Raytheon Technologies Corp. also claimed on Tuesday that the U.S. was at least several years behind the Chinese in the development of hypersonic missile technology.


      1. Poor Albert Trump nominated Milley. The problem is that Trump really shoould have fired everyone involved in the govt from the start. Now in regards to Miley he has been in a leader position in the military all his life. He has never been in the trenches, you know like you. He is another coward that will send others to their deaths with out a thought. He is a waste of air, you know like biden and like biden too bad their mothers didn’t have abortions before they were born, you know like your mommy should have… just sayin

  1. Too much Information is being shared on “Social media” so much so that it is probably costing a reduction in pay to Intelligence Spies around the world!
    Remember when Barry used to say he got his “Info” from the TV Six O Clock news, Well now it’s 24/7 on Social media that can be accessed anywhere there is internet available, anywhere in the World to Friend or Foe, regardless of political affiliation
    It would probably be an effective “move” to be careful sharing other than obvious weaknesses
    in defense programs for all and I mean “All” to observe and record for future use!

  2. Milley warns of New Danger….OddGeneral Milley is still America’s greatest danger.
    We don’t know if he would obey any president.

        1. I believe that Trump hired Milley for his current position.
          I believe that Trump is not the current President.
          What do you believe?

  3. F Milley , if he wants to experience white rage always got to do is step into a group of veterans and talk as shit,. Except for him there is no white rage in the military there’s only green and dark green. This guy has the biggest chickenshit FM general I’ve ever seen , he looks like a p x hero, most of the metals he’s wearing on his chest are given for him being able to hit the toilet, I’m being able to keep his ass clean glacier the f don’t represent veterans I can’t stand to even look at him if that’s ( all the Army can be) ,then I feel sorry for the guys who come under his command. He sounds like a racist a communist racist and a dick holster for the communist Democratic party.
    He’s a job scared wimp, and talkin loud like he’s the voice of authority just makes him look like he’s a pimple on a dick

    1. Who was the idiot who gave Milley his current job?
      Is he a job scared wimp, and talkin loud like he’s the voice of authority just makes him look like he’s a pimple on a dick

  4. We had a missile gap… turned out to be false. We had a fighter gap.. turned out to be false. We had a nuclear weapons gap… turned out to be wrong. And now we have this…hummm who is getting richer from all these things? The Defense Department! Maybe if they stop their 20% waste and fraud thay would have enough. No just keep scaring the people and ask for more of our money. I think we spend more than the next 7 top spending countries ( on military) and yet we are always behind! Maybe if we stop concentrating on wokeness, phony white supremacy and crt we could spend the bucks on weapons and our troops ! What a crazy idea! And just maybe stop getting rid of our true good soldiers for brown nosing dopes who have as much militart experience as Hunter Biden. We are losing our military to indoctrination and discharging so they ( the left) can have their “diverse” but totally incompetent military who can hand out food but couldn’t tell you how to fire their weapon.

  5. I can’t believe Milley took a break from making our military “Woke” to worry about the security of our nation. What will he do next????, maybe put the military on alert???

  6. Maybe if milley would have spent more time actually doing his job instead of trying to get trump for anything the democrats could use against him, we wouldn’t be surprised by what China is doing. Of course Biden and his family owe the Chinese their undivided loyalty not our country.

    1. Miley’s next announcement will be to thank Trump for having the confidence in him to promote him to the most powerful military position in the world.

  7. LISTEN UP…GOD Still has 2 METEORS with CHINAs Name on Them…..YING and YANG. WHAT FOOL will Go UP Against GOD and WIN???? GOD has a POWERFUL REP. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄

    1. China is in the process of stuffing it up your ying yang.
      The percentage of people who believe in God just keeps on going down .
