Anybody with two brain cells to rub together knows it's an idea whose time
has not yet come. Trump just wants something else with his name on it.
The problem I have is that Trump just gave up the moral high ground. He
announced that it's the USA that's declared it's creating a militar
Space Force with the intention to put offensive
weapons in space. That is simply stunning and I'm quite surprised this
has not gotten more coverage. Here we have the USA now behaving like the
old USSR. Imagine our reaction, the reaction of the world, if Russia
or China had just made this announcement.
Whatever happens from here, our enemies now have cover to do whatever they
please while pointing to the USA as the country that started the
militarization of space. And history has the videos of Trump, what he
said, showing he did it in the name of our country.
I have no problem if Trump wants to spend more money on research on
military applications for space. Russia is doing it, we're doing it.
But what he just did, position the USA as the aggressor, leading
the militarization of space, is contrary to everything this country
should stand for. It's based solely in Trump's juvenile like behavior,
having to be the school yard bully again. It's a good thing he wasn't
president when we landed on the moon. I'm sure he would have claimed
it as property of the USA and announced plans to militarize it.
But there is hope here, if the Democrats take the House, a lot of this
nonsense will never come to be. Congress would have to approve his
Space Force, good luck with that. But the damage is already done, the
Russians and Chinese are already evaluating what to do. Another interesting
aspect, how smart is this while he's still claiming he has peace and
denuclearization with NK? He's telling us KJU is denuclearizing while
Trump is now extending war to space? Good grief, Tillerson is right,
he's a f**** moron.
