Trump is sending Pence to explain it to the Pentagon.

"Vice President Mike Pence will renew the administration’s call for a space force in a speech at the Pentagon on Thursday. Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan will lay out interim steps, including establishing a space command and a new joint agency for buying satellites, which the Pentagon plans to create by the end of the year."

"

Trump’s broader call for a space force as a new branch of the armed services — joining the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard — faces an uncertain future. It can only be implemented with the approval of Congress. Senior lawmakers in the Senate have voiced staunch opposition to the idea, which is unlikely to be taken up until next year in any case.


If Congress eventually approves a space force, it would probably have 30,000 to 40,000 personnel, drawn mostly from the Air Force but also from the Army and possibly the National Reconnaissance Office, the little-known intelligence agency responsible for building and launching spy satellites."

http://thespacereview.com/article/3543/1

The Outer Space Treaty is very explicit on the meaning of military use of outer space at the time of ratification and, thus, any legal inference ought to be hinged on narrow textual interpretation of the words within the text of the treaty. Article IV of the treaty reads:


“States Parties to the Treaty undertake not to place in orbit around the earth any objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction, install such weapons on celestial bodies, or station such weapons in outer space in any other manner.

The moon and other celestial bodies shall be used by all States Parties to the Treaty exclusively for peaceful purposes. The establishment of military bases, installations and fortifications, the testing of any type of weapons and the conduct of military maneuvers on celestial bodies shall be forbidden. The use of military personnel for scientific research or for any other peaceful purposes shall not be prohibited. The use of any equipment or facility necessary for peaceful exploration of the moon and other celestial bodies shall also not be prohibited.”

Hence, following activities are not allowed in Outer Space by signatory states of the Outer Space Treaty:
1.Placement of nuclear weapons
2.Placement of any weapon of mass destruction
3.Installation of weapons on celestial bodies
4.Stationing weapons in outer space
5.Establishment of military bases, fortification or other installations
6.Testing weapons in outer space

Exceptions for military presence in outer space

As closing sentences of Article IV of the Outer Space Treaty indicate, the use of military personnel for scientific research or for any other peaceful purposes are permitted. That is to say, armed forces of signatory states to the Treaty can engage in space activities aimed at peaceful exploration of outer space for the sake of the common interest of humankind beyond Earth’s atmosphere.

Article IV states, “The use of any equipment or facility necessary for peaceful exploration of the moon and other celestial bodies shall also not be prohibited.” The clause “any equipment” may clearly include military equipment of any sort but their use in outer space is conditional on both their necessity and peaceful aims.


Remarks: We have a Treaty for Outer Space.

Will they send the mistresses to Mars and then take trips there at taxpayers expense? Where is Senator So and So? At a meeting on Mistress Mountain?

Space Force.

Why should we worry about China and Russia developing anti-satellite weapons in a world heavily dependent on satellite communications at every level?

Maybe it would be better to wait and see of they shut down commerce, GPS, cell service and all the other things the world depends on.

There already is an Air Force section that monitors satellite activity in space already and they have been advising for years that the U.S. had better expand our capability to defend our satellite communications. But way pay any attention to the professionals?

As with letting Iran and North Korea get nuclear weapons and missile systems to deliver them. What could possibly go wrong?

Why are you worried about Russia? They pretty much own Trump now.

Maybe if Trump didn't pull out of the deal with Iran, we wouldn't have to worry about their having nuclear weapons.

I'm not blaming Trump for North Korea having nuclear weapons, but they sure made Trump look like the fool the entire world already know that he is.

- Any threat should be taken seriously.
- President Trump has come down hard on Russia.


Maybe if Trump didn't pull out of the deal with Iran, we wouldn't have to worry about their having nuclear weapons.
- Obama’s “deal” with Iran gave then a clear path to continue to develop nuclear weapons and a missile system to deliver them.


I'm not blaming Trump for North Korea having nuclear weapons, but they sure made Trump look like the fool the entire world already know that he is.

- President Trump’s sanctions on NK have them in a serious bind and NK will give up their nuclear weapons program.


You are in the camp of the weak that choses to ignore problems until it is too late.

- Roosevelt ignored Japan and Pearl Harbor happened.
- Clinton ignored Al Qaeda and 9/11 happened.

The only thing hard about Trump's Russia policy is what happens in Trump's pants when he is in the same room as Putin.

Trump's policies toward Iran and NK will accelerate their nuclear capabilities. Trump gave NK the photo opportunities and media attention they wanted, even getting Trump to salute their general, and they have done nothing to slow their nuclear program. They did, however, get the US to give up their war games with SK. Trump got played like a fiddle.

The military exercises with South Korea have not been "given up", only suspended as agreed upon during the meeting.
The rest of you post is crap you parrot from the corrupt liberal media.

President Trump's approval rating continues to rise.
