Mike Pence introduces Pentagon report calling for a space force

Mike Pence introduces Pentagon report calling for a space force”

They include the new command and creating a civilian position as an assistant Secretary of Defense for Space to oversee the transition.

However, before it gets off the ground - Space Force still needs Congress to pass new legislation. The U.S. will meet the emerging threats on this new battlefield, he said, and carry on the cause of liberty and peace into the next great frontier.

They said the Pentagon report was the start of a "multi-year process that we think will result in a safer, stronger America".

Pence has argued that this change meant that the appropriate response is a new branch of the military, but his view of history here was a bit odd.

Actress Charlotte Rae, star of 'Facts of Life,' dead at 92
Charlotte is survived by her two children, Larry and Andrew Strauss, from her marriage to U.S. film composer John Strauss. The actress was nominated for two Tony awards and received an an Emmy nomination in 1975 and again in 1982.

Be that as it may, the administration is starting to fill out some details about what might go into a space force.

In June, President Donald Trump called for the establishment of the sixth armed service, to join the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has endorsed plans to reorganize the military's space warfighting forces and create a new command, but has previously opposed launching an expensive separate new service.

Pence said Russia, China and other nations hostile to the USA were "weaponizing space", pointing to their efforts to develop satellite-killing rockets and weaponry. Pence said this is needed to expedite innovation and lean out red tape.The Air Force has already begun to transform its Space and Missile Systems Center but DoD will "accelerate and extend this transformation to all services by creating a joint Space Development Agency". "We are in compete agreement, the vice president is the point man for the president on this, we are working closely, daily with his office and with supporters on Capitol Hill and the relevant committees", he said.

Palestinian teen activist Ahed Tamimi released by Israel
Thirteen days later, she was charged with alleged assault, incitement, and throwing stones at Israeli military soldiers. In Nabi Saleh, supporters welcomed Ahed home with Palestinian flags planted on the roof of her home.

In March this year, Mr Trump's National Space Strategy was said to recognise USA "competitors and adversaries have turned space into a warfighting domain". The Department of Defense has prepared a report laying out the phases of creating the new branch, which will ultimately have to be reviewed and approved by Congress.

"The time has come to establish the United States Space Force, and that's what brings us here today", said Pence.

"I think we need to have a longer discussion on this". Space is vital to the way the United States wages war; The Pentagon's satellites are used for missile-defence warnings, guiding precision munitions, and providing communications and reconnaissance. In the second phase the Pentagon would combine all the components into the new sixth branch of service. The United States will have a Space Force as a separate branch of the military. Another dissed the ridiculous plan, writing, "Gov't: Sorry we can't give you healthcare, we had to stick to absolute necessities like [checks notes] a Space Force".
