Trump Adminstration Wants ‘Space Force’ to be in Operation by 2020

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis

"Our foreign competitors and adversaries have already begun weaponizing space, developing new technologies to disrupt vital communications, blind satellites and threatening - just, you look at what they're doing, they've given me rundowns, I've seen things that you don't even want to see what they're doing and how advanced they are", he said.

Finally, the report calls for clear lines of responsibility and accountability to manage the process of establishing and growing the Space Force, including the appointment of an assistant secretary of defense for space, the vice president said.

Mattis said the Pentagon's space defense has been a "point of discussion" from the earliest days of the Trump administration. "The vision of the US President will become the reality". "We must have American dominance in space", Trump said, as he warned of the threat from China and elsewhere. Twitter was quick to respond, with SpongeBob memes, tweets about Trump's disproportionate allocation of resources to initiatives like the Space Force, and references to everything from Star Wars to Star Trek.

"It´s not enough to have American presence in space".

Caspian Sea states sign landmark convention
A draft of the agreement viewed by RFE/RL suggested the parties would agree at Aktau to the Caspian's status as a "sea". The Caspian Sea has several different species of sturgeon, the fish that yields the highly prized delicacy caviar.

After this, the Russian embassy in the USA mocked President Trump by making a tweet of their own, with their very own "Space Force" logo.

However, Congress has already passed the NDAA for the fiscal year of 2019, and it was devoid of any language alluding to the creation of the Space Force. The Space Force will have, as Pence described, "an elite group of joint war fighters specializing in the domain of space".

The proposed sixth branch of the USA military will "confront the emerging threats in the boundless expanse of space" according to Pence.

This hasn't stopped President Pence from outlining specifics of the new military force. "This new command ... will establish unified command and control for our Space Force operations, ensure integration across the military, and develop the space warfighting doctrine, tactics, techniques, and procedures of the future", he said. "As challenges arise and deadlines approach, there must be someone in charge who can execute, hold others accountable, and be responsible for the results". "I was not against setting up a Space Force, what I was against was rushing to do that before we could define the problem".
