The Chinese will never be taken seriously in the space race if they keep dropping rockets on people’s heads and naming them like some back country hick. I mean when SpaceX beats you to “Dragon” somebody in China ain’t paying attention.

Specifically, the Long March was a strategic retreat--there's question of whether it was "only" 4000 miles or was the full 8000 the CCP claims--that saved the PLA and ultimately allowed them to regroup enough to become the victors in the Chinese Civil War, establishing the PRC in 1949. Had it not succeeded, China would have been governed by Chiang Kai-Shek's KMT party, a pro-Western autocracy, and the entire history of the Cold War would have been radically different. Huge timeline shift, you might say.

Yes, it would have been a very different world. Seems likely that insurgent CCP forces would have continued operations supported by the USSR, but once crippled by KMT forces we might have avoided the military actions in Korea and later Vietnam. In the post colonial period nationalist leaders would have arisen, but not necessarily communist affiliated. The "what ifs" of history.

It's a numbers game. I'm not sure, but I believe the CCP had far more fighters, with far greater will, than the KMT. Chiang Kai-Shek was detested by Gen. "Vinegar Joe" Stillwell who referred to Chiang as "Peanut". As I remember, Chiang was less concerned about the Japanese than Mao. Chiang has pretty much abandoned everything Dr. Sun Yat-Sen stood for.

Apparently the rocket debris landed in the Indian Ocean close to the Maldives. No casualties reported... Chinese engineers and scientists breathing a sigh of relief.

Jenna Ellis mocked over 'unintentionally hilarious' tweet thanking Space Force for Chinese rocket protection

Attorney Jenna Ellis, who represented Donald Trump during the 2020 election, was mocked over the weekend after she suggested that the former president had protected America from a Chinese rocket by creating Space Force.

"Aren't you glad Trump gave us a Space Force?" Ellis asked on Saturday, referring to a Chinese rocket that was falling back to Earth.

Ellis's followers quickly noted that the Air Force's Space Command had existed years before Trump ordered the creation of Space Force, a new branch of the U.S. military.

"We already had US Space Command as part of the US Air Force. Jenna probably doesn't know that," one commenter wrote.

"They were instrumental in not being able to accurately predict when or where it was going to touch down! #MAGA," another person replied.

"One of the more unintentionally hilarious tweets of the evening," another Twitter user said.

trump bribed Tuberville and Mo into relocating the command center from CO to AL to aid in his insurrection. That's the most work trump actually put into his Space Farce

Have they even gotten any vehicles yet? What are they going to do? Intercept it with a 2001 Honda Accord?

The very same Space Force that has no clue or any information about the Chinese rocket that just crash-landed in the Indian Ocean?

I'm more glad that Steve Carell and Greg Daniels gave us Space Force. 😄

Did they chase it into the Indian Ocean?

You don't know what you're talking about.
USAF already had a Space Command (joining MAC [military airlift command] & TAC [tactical air command]). "Space Force" was just an administrative redress of Space Command. Seriously, the military so no point in creating a whole new branch.

What we have now is more government. We already had the Air Force which handled those duties.

They literally just broke out Air Force Space Command into a separate force, Jenna. They were getting the job done just fine before. I know, I used to work there.

Fear not, lurker, ever since there were cavemen who refused to believe in saber tooth tigers our human genetic family tree has steadily been pruned. We’re witness to it again this past pandemic year as certain folks again refuse to heed impending danger... and suffering predictable outcomes.

no argument, reality always wins in the end.
so, how does the space force interact with the jewish space laser force? are they friends? and why is the JSLF wasting time setting forest fires when they could be vaporizing neonazis or palestinians or something? who does the JSLF report to, anyway, Israel?

If any zapping is done it should be by Strategic Command zapping them at their launch sites. Don't expect TFG's Space Force Cadets to do much.
