Trump’ administration has announced plans for a new, separate US Space Force as a sixth military service by 2020.
In a speech at the Pentagon in Washington DC, the US vice-president Mike Pence said the development is needed to ensure America’s dominance in space amid heightened competition and threats from China and Russia.
“Previous administrations all but neglected the growing security threats emerging in space,” Pence said. “Our adversaries have transformed space into a war-fighting domain already, and the United States will not shrink from this challenge.”
“America will always seek peace, in space as on earth, but history proves that peace only comes through strength. And in the realm of outer space, the United States Space Force will be that strength in the years ahead,” he added.
Donald Trump has called for a “separate but equal” space force and has been seen as a key driving force behind the headline-grabbing move. In a Thursday tweet, Trump wrote: “Space Force all the way!”
Space Force all the way!

But, it looks like Hollywood was designed to make Americans forget about America. As usual, Hollywood celebrities immediately trashed the plan, suggesting that is a waste of money, it has a stupid name, or that they should be allowed to participate.
So…the douchbag in Chief has the head of Marvel to maralogo for a general cock-sucking session, next thing ya know we’re talkin about a new branch of military called THE SPACE FORCE. And you’ll never guess who’s gonna run it!!!
Can’t make this shit up folks!

As the star of Muppets From Space, I'll be expecting an offer to join the Space Force very soon…I assume they're going to ask me to lead the whole program. pic.twitter.com/7Smt9lKouK

If “Space Force” were a TV show, the writers would keep pitching on a better title.

Pence just doubled down on the need for a Space Force. This from a man who probably believes the Earth is just 6,000 years old. #ThatIsntHowYouScience

Trump's talking "space force", but he's thinking "escape route".

I would like to suggest the first person we send into space as part of the Space Force is Laura Ingraham. We can tell her it’ll be like a summer camp. https://t.co/7n423FFwLN

Longtime viewers of the Trump administration will remember that Space Force is the president's boldest idea… https://t.co/Wl06d23axe

Thee Hollywood figures have no entertainment value except their sheer stupidity.
Remember this… When Ronald Reagan started the idea of Strategic Defense Initiative the same people said the same thing… that it was stupid and impossible and was derisively nicknamed by the media as “Star Wars”.
Today this program has led to numerous advances in defensive weapons like the Patriot Missile System that have saved many lives… and could possibly save many more if properly funded.
