Space Force!!1!


The fucking moron has decided the military is not bloated enough, no. We need…SPACE FORCE!

Donald Trump addressed Marines at Miramar Air Station in San Diego on Tuesday.

In addition to touting record-breaking military spending and promising a raise to the military he also laid out plans for a space army.

“We should have a new force called the Space Force. It’s like the Army and the Navy, but for space, because we’re spending a lot of money on space,” he said. “I said maybe we need a new force, I was not really serious, then I said ‘what a great idea.’ Maybe we’ll have to do that.”

“My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea,” he said.

Right. As if funneling yet more money into the military machine that is Amerikka isn’t bad enough, the Tiny Tyrant has come up with Spaceballs, because that’s what it would be, if we’re going to pretend this would actually go anywhere. Thankfully, it won’t, but fuck knows just how much money will be blown on such idiocy. I’ll bet NASA just can’t wait for a phone call from the Tiny Tyrant and his genius ideas for Space Force. Ah well, let the mockery begin! You can see some select responses at Raw Story.

    I quipped on twitter that “Galactic Patrol” would be a far cooler name. But come to think of it, there’s a certain appeal to that. If memory serves, when Virgil Samms created the organisation, didn’t he basically tell the US government to fuck off; that they weren’t getting control of it?

    Not that Trumpistas would know or care but I thought there were already treaties to not militarize space.

    Oh, what does that matter when GenuineGeniusTrump™ figured out that space is a war fighting domain?

    “We came in peace for all mankind,” the man said, whilst planting the stars & stripes.

    Yeah. Fuck, we are awful.

    Just wait ’til they start rolling out them real-live lightsabers, then we’ll really get shown! Can’t wait!
    I find the Spaceballs image appropriate. I bet the uniforms will look like that -- fishbowl helmets to make sure everyone knows these are real astronaut soldiers!

    Daz: Uffish, yet slightly frabjous, @1

    Yeah, but Samms and Kinnison had the Arisians as backup -- we’ve got Faux News.

    fusilier, who wonders if the Koch Bros. are really from Kalonia

    The 1967 Outer Space Treaty prohibits putting weapons of mass destruction in orbit, on the Moon, or on any other celestial body. Signatories(which include the United States and Russia) are not supposed to conduct military operations, build military bases, or test weapons on the Moon or other celestial bodies either. But it doesn’t prohibit putting conventional weapons in orbit, which apparently includes kinetic bombardment weapons. Nor does it prohibit testing conventional weapons in orbit. For example the Soviet Salyut 3 space station had a 23mm cannon on board that was test fired, while both China and the US have used anti-satellite weapons to destroy satellites in orbit.
