Since Argentina’s democratic recovery in 1983, the armed forces had not emerged as a decisive actor in a process of breaking the constitutional order in Latin America. It is clear that military personnel were involved in the coups in Honduras, Paraguay and Brazil. But they were not at the forefront in an open and institutional way as in this case.

The 5G Roll Out of 20,000 Telecom Satellites. Cosmic Junk

11 November 2019 — Global Research

By Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null

For years, scientists have warned about the dangers of enormous amounts of debris orbiting our planet. Aside from wrenches and other tools used by astronauts, plastic bags, and yes even a toothbrush, according to the federally-funded Areospace organization, the greater dangers are obsolete spacecraft, portions of damaged and disabled satellites, rocket fragments, flywheels, and nuclear reactor cores that have broken up or collided with various other objects. Yet even a screwdriver traveling at an average of 17,500 mph, with an impact velocity of 21,000 mph, can be very destructive if it were to crash into a satellite, rendering it inoperable. And this simply adds to more useless junk, now estimated at 128 million small bits of debris under 1cm and the 34,000 larger pieces, floating above our heads. Imagine being hit with a piece of space scrap the size of a sugar cube is “equivalent of standing next to an exploding hand grenade.”
