@Paladin is overjoyed.
I would support this IF the Air Force's fixed and rotary wing assets and personnel were transferred back to the Army. The remaining space and rocket assets and personnel would remain in a renamed (and beefed up) Space Force.
If they don't call it Starfleet, I'm done with this whole silly planet.
Has trump been playing way to many wing commander games they should of spun it off US navy/airforce/marines.
Day late & a dollar short! My daughter had a great opportunity when she was in school but never stuck with it. Her teacher called me in for a conference one time and said my daughter was "taking up space" but her report card didn't reflect that at all.
OMFG I totally have an idea for the Space Force corporate anthem:
We'd probably get this version: http://star-fleet.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Fleet_(TV_Series)
The X-Bomber was pretty cool though:
Looks like an X-Wing mated with Serenity.
It's happening. USA TODAY: Trump's Space Force launched at Pentagon as a separate armed service.
It just sounds so dumb.
Pence Calls Space Force Necessary to Protect U.S. from Gay Aliens
It is dumb. It is just an attempt to distract from all of the corruption and legal problems Republicans have these days and nothing will come of it. It is the latest shony thing they dangle hoping to change headlines.
I'm not sure what the news is. The article says it won't be in service until 2020.
I don't see what the big deal is. While a U.S. "space force" might not be necessary or viable right now, the creation and development of one is inevitable. Unless you're one of the anti military liberals who believe "space" is and should be some kind of realm which will never be touched by violence or competing national interests. You know that isn't going to happen.
It's stupid because it already exists. Essentially, what Trump wants to do is create another version of this, as it's own separate branch of the armed forces. It's as absurd as deciding that tanks are the future of ground warfare and creating a "Tank Force" which duplicates the armored divisions of the Army. Of course, as I write that, I realize you probably still don't get why it's a stupid idea, so let me rephrase that in a way in which you can see the absurdity of the idea: Imagine a shot-by-shot remake of TOS Trek, where the only difference between it and the original episodes is that the cast has been replaced with different actors. There's no new effects, no new dialog, and the only "benefit" to it is that we can say we now have more Star Trek.
Time for the Nazis from the dark side of the moon to invade. I personally am getting some unalbinosol and mixing it into rightforge's kool aid.
Why was the USAF created? Wasn't it functioning fine as a part of the Army? U.S. Army Air Force.
The answer of course is nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapons back then were seen as only deliverable by bombers and it seemed important for a single organization to be responsible for the delivery of nuclear weapons.
Inevitably, space based offensive and defensive weapons systems will be of massive importance to conflicts beyond the mere communications and spy satellite systems of today. Once that occurs it will make no sense to simply make Space Command (what we have now) as a small department in the USAF.
Only you would be stupid enough to trust the same people who think breathing coal fumes is healthy and gravity is an unproven theory while the bible is fact to launch you into space. Dont let me stop you from being blasted off ether planet. Given you don't need feet to float in space it might be a good career step for you.
This from the person who has posted here that commercial nuclear reactors can explode via a NUCLEAR explosion.
Never did say that Mr. Liar. But please do enlighten us how pressure does not happen when water boils in an enclosed space. I do remember your shoddy grasp of physics. Perhaps Mr kitchens would like to demonstrate for us what happens when a liquid forms to gas and pump some liquid co2 up his ass and see how long his bowels can hold in the explosion. Do show us Mr wizard with some physical proof about the expanse of liquid to gas.
Any day you want to perform a miracle to prove God will save you please do so.
Christ, you're dense. What happened to the Army's planes when the Air Force was created? Did the Army keep their planes? No. Do you think that the Air Force is going to give up Space Command and hand things over to Space Force? They're not. So, we wind up with unnecessary duplication of government operations. Will we one day actually need a separate branch of the military to be a space force? Maybe, but creating it right now is akin to creating the Air Force during the Civil War.
They will if Congress tells them to.
Lol, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a Goatse reference.
Separate names with a comma.
