Militants from at least four Chinese dominion nations detonated tons of c4 explosive in the guts of space elevator Mao Liànjiē shattering the mainline carbon cables and all safety lines. China has declared an atmospheric state of emergency.
Clear skies, tranquil waves, and a full moon provided a fleeting perfection Thursday night, as specially brainwashed assault monk teams gathered at the base of the Mao Liànjiē Space Elevator, secured within Luhuitou Space Park on the mouth of Sanya Harbor.

Negotiations fell apart early the next morning. The besieged monks exploded an estimated fifty tons of plastique. The Mao Liànjiē cracked into two like a broken matchstick. Fallout and wreckage is supposed to rain down for weeks.
Debris is expected to spread over ocean, city, and countryside with no telling an extent to the damage.

Screenings and defenses will be tightened at all four major US space elevators, and every mainland SpacePort. We also express regret at the Chinese governments rebuke of any North American aid offer. No man is an island.” Chinese officials claim manifest peoples destiny, and collective dreams trump dominion nation concerns, and terrorism will not be tolerated.
