Donald Trump calls for the creation of a “Space Force.”

Weaponizing space, that always works out well in the sci-fi movies.

President Donald Trump has directed the Pentagon to create a “space force” as a new, sixth military branch to oversee missions and operations in the space domain.

“We must have American dominance in space,” Trump said during a speech at the National Space Council meeting, held at the White House on Monday. “I’m hereby directing the Department of Defense to immediately begin the process to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces.”

“We are going to have the Air Force, and we are going to have the space force,” Trump said. “Separate, but equal. It is going to be something so important.”

Trump then directed Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, to “carry that assignment out.”

Isn’t this the same guy who argued that military exercises near North Korea were too costly, and used that as a reason to end them?

Of course this new “space force” will have to be okayed by Congress, and they already rejected the idea earlier this year. 

It also opposed by the Air Force and Trump’s own Secretary of Defense.

The Air Force is adamantly against a space force. “The Pentagon is complicated enough,” Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson told reporters last summer. “This will make it more complex, add more boxes to the organization chart.”

Even Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis came out against it. “I oppose the creation of a new military service and additional organizational layers at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting efforts,” Mattis wrote in a letter to congressional defense leaders last October.

Why is it that virtually everything that happens with this administration seems like it is either an SNL skit or a bad plot from a Tom Clancy novel?

    It’s almost impossible to believe that one person can be this stupid. As often as Dotard has apparently had unprotected sex, perhaps he has an STD, such as syphilis, which is known to adversely affect the brain. In other words, he lost his “personal Vietnam.”

    Quote from Military.com: President Donald Trump has directed the Pentagon to create a “space force” as a new, sixth military branch to oversee missions and operations in the space domain.

    So Trump is wanting to violate the Outer Space Treaty, which was signed by the US 27 January 1967, and which came into force on 10 October 1967? More likely, he is totally unaware of it, and will pooh-pooh it is someone tries to tell him about it.

    The Outer Space Treaty represents the basic legal framework of international space law. Among its principles, it bars states party to the treaty from placing weapons of mass destruction in Earth orbit, installing them on the Moon or any other celestial body, or otherwise stationing them in outer space. It exclusively limits the use of the Moon and other celestial bodies to peaceful purposes and expressly prohibits their use for testing weapons of any kind, conducting military maneuvers, or establishing military bases, installations, and fortifications (Article IV).

      Well someone should have told him about it by now, since this isn’t the first time he proposed his space force and the same reason was given the last time.

      Bet he doesn’t remember.

        Perhaps he figures that if he keeps trying he may eventually become Dictator of the Solar System.

          Just the Solar System? I think he wants to become Overlord of the entire universe.

    Did someone forget to tell DonnyDotard about the National Aeronautics and Space Administration – you know, the folks that got us to the moon last time?

    Where does Traitor Trump propose to come up with the money to fund this “sixth branch”? I guess he can get his buddy, Vlad, to pony up. This guy needs to be confined to a special little room with no telephone or contact with the real world.

    Where are the people who respect our Constitution? Stand up to this freak and get him and his Nazi enablers out of our government!!`

    Wanna bet he got the idea from a little Putin whispering in his ear, that way they can tear up the treaty and russia can militarize space.
