While the humor is gratifying, the Defense Department MUST resist this effort.
NASA was founded, specifically, to explore space WITHOUT introducing weapons into that regime. It is a noble and honorable quest that has attracted other nations. For us to establish SPACE as a war zone–worthy of infesting with offensive weapons–is a violation of that original high ideal, and only invites other to emulate us, making world-wide destruction more likely in future.
I object to this entire idea of “Space Force,” especially since is was spawned by our new National Security Advisor, an avid war-monger of Trumpian proportions, citing the “wonderful public response this will produce for” Trump himself for the benefit of industrial war-mongers.
