Trump: US must create space forces

40
US President Donald Trump during a visit to the Miramar military base in the state of California spoke to the military and spoke about the prospects of the American armed forces. Against the background of statements in the style of "the American army is stronger than ever," Trump informed the audience that the US is considering not only land, air and water as a zone of possible military actions, but also outer space.


Trump: US must create space forces


Trump:
I propose a new national strategy in which outer space is recognized as a war zone, as well as land, air and sea. I think that we could have cosmic forces. We have a fleet, there are land forces, and therefore we need to think about space forces. This is a great idea and it could be realized.


Recall that earlier the idea of ​​creating a US space force was also voiced in Congress. However, she did not find appropriate support. In the end, it was considered that in the United States, the forces and formations that were already sufficiently created earlier were also responsible for near-Earth space, including the satellite constellation. By the way, Pentagon chief Mattis opposed the idea of ​​creating cosmic forces.

        Judging by the change in the head of the regional committee, it may very well. Another confirmation that you should not put a businessman as head of state. For the solution to the problems is appropriate: disagree - dismissed. And at the very dollars in the holes rushing around.
        Oh, America will sell Trump ... not in whole, so in parts. Or drive into a dead end. This is not a hotel to contain.

          But this is how to look yet. Trampush famously vparivaet their products to partners. Take Patriots in South Korea for example laughing (I won’t be surprised if they are rubbing their hands together with a fat man - they have swindled the South Koreans, and Gesheft and Ynu kicked off Trump), and they forced all NATO members to buy their planes, it’s like they used to pay party fees in the Communist Party, and so they pay business adnaka.

            Perhaps they will not argue on this subject, yesterday there were only battles at work. I am against this "businessman", but people could not be convinced. "Putin is bad, does nothing / hasn’t done anything, Grudinin will come, everything will be done well and right." Though logs on the head chop, but like adults.

            Yes, I agree famously. Only here are some semi-criminal methods of steaming. However, for the United States this is not news. Still from the times of the wild west: "If a gentleman does not win by the rules, he changes the rules." The question is, how long will this be tolerated ...

    It will not work to draw Russia into the space arms race to deplete reserves, as the USSR used to be. Learned to give deeply asymmetric and painful responses. So the flag in one hand, Mr. Trump, the dollar press in the other, and forward with the songs to the ride of unheard of generosity.

    Yes, it was already, a familiar motive, if only ours hadn’t bought this trick again ... the Yankees haven’t been producing anything for a long time, all production is concentrated anywhere but not in the states, only the final screwdriver assembly is needed to restart the production of space launch vehicles even try, but the Yankees already do not have those brains, the old generation is already leaving, there is no new one yet, only attempts ...

      to resume the production of space rocket launchers you need to really try, but the Yankees already have no brains, the old generation is already leaving, there is no new one, only attempts ...

      Well, not everything is so sad. Musk launched his car on Mars. A breakthrough! The truth is not explained in what, but it does not matter. The main thing is to build a heavy rocket, borrowing technology and money from NASA, and launching tons of debris into 2 space, spreading it all over the planet as a great achievement.
      But trouble with manned flights ... so that there Musk would not chat about suicide bombers in 2019.

        Musk is already celebrating 150 commercial launch, having made good money on this, he has arranged a free advertising campaign for his beloved and his company, worldwide, by the way. So your grumbling against the background of this, to put it mildly, looks wretched.

        I remind you that the Americans stopped manned flights in 2011, and there isn’t much trouble since there are at least two projects to choose from, that’s what Roskosmos will do without orders from NASA and with such a competitor in commercial launches as Musk it’s much more interesting how the Federation is is she alive?

          Only for some reason, according to the results of the year, the company shows millions of losses. If this is called "earned," then I'm Santa Claus.
          and the trouble is not particularly noticeable since at least two projects are on the way

          Of course, it is not noticeable, because the Unions deliver astronants to the ISS. And NASA, which has a budget many times the budget of Roscosoms, is not able to cut down a manned ship, at least for a temporary replacement for the shuttles, giving everything to private owners. On the way - this is when they give permission for a manned launch. In the meantime, even announcements are not heard. Although in some places it is written that in 2018 ... Nu-nu .. let's see.
          this is what Roskosmos will do without orders from NASA

          Do you seriously think that the main money-giver of Roscosmos is NASA? Is it kidding so likely?
          How is the Federation still alive?

          In March of 2017, all documentation was released, and the production of individual units began. 2018 is already planning discharges from the aircraft. Could read on the wiki. So the systematic development of the program is still alive and ongoing. Like other projects, by the way.

            Evo how. As of June 2017, a gigantic-sized printer on which they were planning to print a Federation model for digitizing nodes and then transferring them to subcontractors was not yet printed in the workshop - they were waiting for the representatives of the manufacturer to arrive, so as not to lose the printer warranty.
            Something like this. Although the cardboard layout can be discarded right now.

            which company, more precisely respected, spacex went into profit, Tesla went to the expected minus due to the construction of a new plant, but the successful Roskosmos is on the verge, billions have already been requested for losses.

              Tesla has been in the red for three years now. The "New Plant" has absolutely nothing to do with it.
              SpaceX, due to regular explosions with profit, has also ... not so much.

              ... SpaceX is the only one of the three companies that has never been public (Musk has repeatedly stated that he is not interested in IPOs until SpaceX can deliver a man to Mars). Any estimates of the company's financial results will be approximate or based on hard-to-verify insiders, since SpaceX is not required to regularly disclose statements ...

                he achieved the main thing, took away orders from the “immovable” monopolists (as they thought, he was spitting on Roscosmos). For the sake of this, many companies are prepared not to receive any profit at all (look better at the Chinese).

      The agreement, signed on January 27, 1967, includes clauses on ban on the withdrawal and deployment of space satellites with nuclear weapons any power, as well as a ban on placing any other types of weapons of mass destruction. Reconnaissance and surveillance satellites were not covered by this treaty. Also, various space platforms \ X-37B type \ and interceptor satellites are not covered.

      “The military-political leadership of Russia has long foreseen the possible development of such adverse events. Therefore, it is possible that the United States in the near future can withdraw from the 1967 treaty on the principles of the activities of states in the exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, in order to start the space arms race. We can say that official Washington, even in limited form, can again return to the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) program, which was announced by US President Ronald Reagan on March 23, 1983, "
