    So if you've listened to President Trump's speeches lately, you're probably familiar with the fact that he is pushing the Pentagon to create a so-called "Space Force". I think this is utterly absurd and unnecessary. The Outer Space Treaty forbids the deployment of space-based weaponry, and all of the world's great powers are signatories to it. Russia has already threatened the United States over it. So if the Space Force somehow did make it through the Pentagon, it wouldn't be able to function as much more than a NASA 2.0. If the President is so bent on expanding American interests in space, he should look to the already existing agencies and root out their inefficiencies rather than creating an entirely new branch of the Armed Forces to drain funds and manpower from the old, all for something which isn't even achievable in our lifetimes.

    The issue of funding and manpower is what disturbs me most about it. It will have to come from somewhere, and as we all know, the Coast Guard is always the first to get hit with budget cuts, despite the fact that its budget is already overcut and always has been.

    So what's everyone else's opinions on it?

    Space Force is definitely needed. We must take out Space ISIS! Also we need it to prevent Independence Day from happening or be one step ahead from someone like Darth Vader gaining to much power in the galaxy. I for one will be lateralling over to the Space Force to be a Space Shuttle Gunner... Who is with me?!

    A Space Force is needed in my opinion. For a few decades its been whispered about how our satellites are at risk from strikes by the Russians and Chicoms. The USAF has the responsibility for the arena of conflict put how much time, money and focus do the jet drivers give it. Not much.

    Inevitably, a military presence will be required. As technology advances and human interests are slowly turned to space. Im not talking about full blown Star Wars. Obviously, at first, it will be limited to satellites. But slowly and over time we will develop "spacecraft". Another point, space would be the only environment where we could use Nukes. The radiation would dissipate into nothingness and the blast would utterly destroy the target. If it manages to survive then the nuke would irridiate the hull making repairs impossible.
