United States to establish Space Force by 2020

As part of the recommendation, a Space Development Agency would be created to create technologies for the new division. John McCain previous year, he said he opposed "the creation of a new military service and additional organizational layers at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting functions".

US Vice President Mike Pence, in a Pentagon address, described the creation of the Space Force as "an idea whose time has come". Another option (bottom left) has the same background as NASA's logo, but features the silhouette of a space shuttle along with "SPACE FORCE".

Mr Trump "knows that space is integral to our American way of life and economic prosperity and is a vital domain for national defence" while, under his direction, the United States is "reclaiming its heritage as the world's greatest space-faring nation", the White House said. Last November, lawmakers shot down a proposal for a "Space Force", and Trump's new pet project could face continued legislative uncertainty.

Pence said Russia, China, North Korea and Iran for years "have pursued weapons to jam, blind and disable our navigation and communication satellites via electronic attacks from the ground".

On Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis called Pence "the point man" on issues pertaining to the United States military and space.

"We're building bipartisan support for our plan", Pence said. But history proves that peace only comes through strength.

Each of the logos features the words "Space Force".

Kenny Stills Offers NFL Possible Way To Stop Protests During National Anthem
Much like a dog yapping at a squirrel in a tree, President Trump couldn't resist commenting on the protests. The NFL now has its anthem policy on hold as it tries to come to a compromise with the NFLPA on the issues.

The report to be released today represents a critical step toward establishing the Space Force, he said. In May, Trump was instructed to set up a space force that would be independent of the aviation force.

Senator Bernie Sanders added that maybe the government should guarantee healthcare 'before we start spending billions to militarize outer space'.

Key among these is the creation of US Space Command, a new organizational body that would draw in members of existing military branches.

"Initially the Department will recommend that the Air Force Space Command commander be dual-hatted as commander of the unified command", the report said.

"Space Force all the way!" the president tweeted. "It is becoming a contested war-fighting domain, and we've got to adapt to that reality", U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said in his opening remarks before Pence's speech.

But, earlier this week, Mr Mattis said he is in "complete alignment" with Mr Trump's concerns about U.S. space assets.
