Do you believe America needs to add a sixth military branch in space?

Considering what Erick Erickson had to say about militarization of the satellites and the appearance of Russia and China attempting to destroy our satellites it may well be time to add to our military forces, or at least consolidate the ones we have already doing this sort of work. So I say yes!

Most of my friends/family aren't in favor of this due to the cost, but I've been interested in the great beyond most all my life so for me, it's exciting. Do we NEED it, maybe not, but that doesn't keep those of us who dream of space from wanting it.

I don't believe we NEED to militarize space. But it's likely we will anyway.

I think there much we don't know about why there is such an urgency for a "Space Force".

agree, but what about combining it with the Air Force? I think it would be cheaper

Our government says it's to basically keep up with other countries but I believe there is much more to it than 'meets the eye', but I digress.

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

There is no need for a Space Force what i would like to know as with NASA what is the money being used for ? Mr Trump cut a deal for this (he is good) now i'm wondering what he got in exchange- Just a thought.

China already has a space force of sorts and I wouldn't doubt Russia too. Without it, we would be like people who don't keep a gun in their home, just hoping no one ever breaks in.

James Clowers That's all fine and dandy if there actually is a "space" as defined by NASA ? You actually think those are satellites just floating around up there ? in a big ole vacuum ? my bet is you also believe we landed on the moon ? Yea I'm the crazy one !!

Look at how missile technology is expanding, look at the use of drones and all the other technology -- still think we don't need to keep a leg up on things?!?

No good comments left here but I think "space" is just another place where military spending is made needed by hostile governments. You support your military as needed or one will be provided you free of charge....(sort of). I am more interested in space exploration though. Lack of much of a NASA bu...View More

Yes Howard, and on that note, look at how all of Trump's allies are screaming at him being soft on the Russians, talk about a disconnect from reality.

No, I think there are plenty of weaponry from the likes of China and Russia with high energy lasers and maybe nukes, many of which aimed at us and Europe. I don't want to see more added up there, but if we are not in the game, it's necessary for us to be in it. I don't want to see a situation where ...View More

China more so than Russia have advanced their space exploration to their benefit. China has the desire to be the Major Power on this planet and will stop at nothing to gain such a goal. The space station that recently fell back to earth is a damn good clue that they are farther along than what they ...View More
