Trump calls for 'space force' as new military branch

President Donald Trump speaks at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego Tuesday

The proposal would have set up a Space Corps in the mould of the Marine Corps, which is a separate military branch that's housed within the Navy. And some said a military space force may make it harder to keep Earth's orbit a place of peace. We'll have the space force. "Very soon, we're going to Mars", Trump said, before stating, "You wouldn't have been going to Mars if my opponent won".

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) proposed the idea in last year's defense spending bill, but Defense Secretary James Mattis and others at the Pentagon opposed it.

The idea was finally dropped from the Pentagon's funding bill by the end of a year ago, but it retains some support in Congress, where advocates say the U.S. is facing significant strategic vulnerabilities in the face of Russian and Chinese pushes into space warfare.

"I don't think we need a Space Corps", said Hyten at a security forum in Canada. Air Force officials told CNN that this was an "unnecessary change in the force's existing space efforts".

"Space is for exploration and lifting up humanity", Newman said.

Rusia pide la sustancia con la que el exespía fue envenenado
Según esa fuente, Trump afirmó en esa conversación que los Estados Unidos apoyarán al Reino Unido "durante todo el camino" en este caso.

Republican congressman Mike Rogers, who proposed the idea, argued that the Air Force was prioritising its fighter jets over space, and a dedicated service was needed to stay ahead of China and Russian Federation in what was described as the next frontier of warfare. We have the air force, we'll have the space force, we'll have the army, the navy.

But Rogers and Cooper also noted that the changes outlined in the NDAA are just a starting point when it comes to rethinking the way the United States military prioritizes the space domain.

"That's unacceptable that we have allowed that to happen, particularly in a day and age when it is essential to have those space capabilities to fight and win wars", he said.

It is regretful to see the laughter, ridicule and pathetic response on "Morning Joe" to the possible meeting of President Trump and the leader of North Korea.

The collaborative NDAA bill unveiled Wednesday will be sent back to the House and Senate for another vote in the coming weeks.
