Trump Calls on Pentagon to Create Military Space Force

Good idea? Bad idea?

Quote:
President Trump today announced that he is directing the Department of Defense to create a sixth branch of the military: the Space Force.

"I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces," Trump said during a meeting of the National Space Council in Washington D.C.

The announcement came during the third public meeting of the National Space Council, where Trump also signed Space Policy Directive 3 after his remarks. The directive deals with space debris and space traffic control, instructing the Department of Defense to modernize its methods of tracking objects in orbit, partially by incorporating commercial tracking services.

We cant have the Army, Air Force, Navy etc address it (or in partnership with NASA and other big gov. agencies) because that might cut into their bloated budgets. We need a whole new additional and separate military branch. With another half trillion or so. Paid for by tax cuts for the rich. Yee haw.

What are they going to defend? This will be an absolute waste of time and money. I wonder if they can just pull a platoon from the army and give them different colored berets and say you are the new space force. You will guard NASA facilities.

The basic idea I am for. We have so many military satellites that may need protected from our enemies just to start.

Space exploration is very important, scientific advancement in general is important.

My big/obvious concern is that this will just make an already bloated military budget cost us even more.

How do you protect a military satellite with a person? Have a rocket drop them off. Lol!

The details will matter greatly in this case. For starters we have treaties/agreements not to weaponize space.

However, the Chinese and the Russians both know that in order to win an "earth" war against the US they will need to take out our "space infrastructure".

I see no reason not to prepare adequate defenses of our satellites as long as we do so within the confines of our treaties.

Donnie is a joke! Many on here will give him a pass! If it were 44 doing the things ole Donnie boy was doing and talking about a space military, you guys would be calling for impeachment. Where would thsse funds come from? Conservatives spend just as much money as Liberals!

"True" conservatives are against spending more than we bring in. However the GOP doesnt meet the specifications to call themselves true conservatives

Well in Star Wars they all had Naval ranks. So with that precedent set the Navy should handle it

impeachment for calling for a creation of a 6th branch of the armed forces? You Libs have lost all touch with reality.

Of course not. Talking about all of his dealings with Russia and the many things he lies about.

They are talking about it being a subset of the AF like the Marines are with the Navy.

If there’s one thing we can be certain of, regardless of what party is in power, entitlements and military spending won’t go down.

Harrycrane is an unknown quantity at this point
I heard a guy named Elroy Jetson who is about 60 I suppose at this point is up for a big job in this new venture. A guy who was always ahead of his time .
