I have written many times about my reservations over our newest military branch, the Space Force…….https://lobotero.com/2019/01/11/space-force-2019/
My personal opinion is that it violates the space law set forth in 1967 in the Outer Space Treaty……..
I also asked the question…does the US need a Space Force?
The Space Force was installed by Pres. Trump and I asked the question on whether we need this branch or not……https://lobotero.com/2019/12/24/does-america-need-a-space-force/
Last year I asked if Biden would keep the Space Force or do the prudent thing and let it go…..https://lobotero.com/2020/12/23/will-there-be-a-biden-space-force/
I said then that he would keep it because it would be very beneficial to the profit of the M-IC……and it appears I was right…..
Space Force appears to be here to stay. The White House said Wednesday that President Biden—who has been dismantling much of Donald Trump’s legacy—fully supports the new branch of the military. Press secretary Jen Psaki said the new administration has no plans to revisit Trump’s decision to establish Space Force in Dec. 2019. “The desire for the Department of Defense to focus greater attention and resources on the growing security challenges in space has long been a bipartisan issue,” she said, per Space.com.
Psaki noted that even if Biden wanted to get rid of Space Force, “it was established by Congress, and any other steps would actually have to be taken by Congress, not by the administration.” Politico reports that GOP lawmakers slammed Psaki Tuesday after she seemed to dismiss the force, saying “Wow. Space Force. It’s the plane of today,” in response to a question, apparently comparing the query to an earlier one about the color of Air Force One. She later said she would welcome members of the Space Force team to visit the briefing room to talk about their work. Chief of Space Operations Gen. Jay Raymond said Wednesday that he is “very proud of the guardians in the Space Force” and would “welcome the opportunity” to discuss their mission.
The Space Force’s top general said Wednesday that the newest military arm may have a PR problem.
A day after White House press secretary Jen Psaki appeared to dismiss the new service during a briefing, Chief of Space Operations Gen. Jay Raymond acknowledged that “it’s hard to understand” the link between what the Space Force does and how it affects U.S. citizens.
A PR problem?
I am doing my part to educate the people at what a waste of time, money and people this white elephant is……how the government is prepping the people for their support is by using an old tactic of fear…..
The commander of U.S. Space Command warns in a new document that keeping satellites safe from hostile attack will require a coordinated response involving all elements of the U.S. military and allies.
The U.S. military operates as a “joint force” and space is now part of that mix, said Gen. James Dickinson, commander of U.S. Space Command.
Dickinson on Friday is expected to release a “commander’s strategic vision” that calls on Space Command to prepare for “an increasingly complex environment” that is “far more competitive and dangerous today than ever before.”
It looks like Treaties mean nothing when the M-IC does not want us to abide by the rules…..
I will continue to watch this situation.
