The US has an Army, a Navy, an Air Force, a Marine Corps, and a Coast Guard. The House Armed Services Committee today voted to create a sixth branch of the American military, dubbed the US Space Corps, which would be wholly responsible for fighting wars in space.
The Space Corps would largely be split off from the Air Force, which was the last new branch of the military created, way back in 1947. The proposal is a continuation of the Pentagon’s increasing efforts in recent years to get heavy funding for space combat.
This comes just a couple of weeks after the Air Force created a Deputy Chief of Staff post of Space Operations, and significantly undercuts their efforts to be in charge of US military’s increasing focus on future space wars.
All of this, of course, has been happening in spite of no other country on the planet having invested significant resources in fighting in space, meaning there’s no plausible adversary for the US to fight in this future space war they’re bankrolling.

I have to call slight BS on America not having a “space enemy” of sorts, because the Russian Air Force has been renamed the “Russian Aerospace Forces.” I have no idea if they are just going to shoot down satellites with hypersonic missiles launched off MiG-31s at 50,000 feet, or if they want armed space capsules or small armed reusable shuttles.
Maybe they could space-blocade Luxembourg for unapproved temerity? (Well, Luxembourg is not known to have the plutonium reprocessing capability and Kazakhstan-tier launch facilities to get into serious space business, so this is all finance and may not be threatening enough)
“Let’s ask top Nazi-turned-NASA rocket scientist, the late Wernher Von
Braun, inventor of the V2 rocket and true all-around pioneer of
aerospace engineering as we know it. Dr. Carol Rosin, a former leading
aerospace executive and space & missile defense consultant with whom
Von Braun became good friends late in his life, has testified before
Congress that over the 4 years she knew him, up until his deathbed in
1977, Wernher had repeatedly warned that once all other methods of
control and manipulation through fear, or ‘threat cards,’ have been
played by the powers that be, (communism, then terrorism, then ‘crazy’
third world leaders, then asteroids,) “the alien card is the final card.
We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens and
all of it is a lie.” Some of her key testimony can be viewed here”:
*insert Starship Troopers joke here*
All these monsters think about is war and if there isn’t an enemy or war they’ll invent them. Selling fear- the number one product in ‘mericer. The ‘merican people should stop buying into the bullshit imaginary fears and boot the demican/republocrats permanently out of any and all offices anywhere forever. And stop supporting the global capitalists and international banksters.
This funding is to keep the military giant u.l.a. alive since SpaceX is kicking their a**in the commercial markets.
Chimera group is worried more and more about the „invasion of
Galactic Confederation fleet“ and they are beefing up their defense
positions in Low Earth orbit. They are behind the creation of the
sixth branch of US military
