Oh please no. We already need to roll the Air Force back into the Army, the Navy can handle the spaceships. We’ll have space sailors and space marines.

So much for the Space treaty of 1966. Among other things it prohibits putting weapons platforms in orbit around any celestial body.

That treaty will not last out the century. For one thing, defending Earth against the possibility of asteroid strikes will require weaponizing space.

Who’s up for enlisting in Star Fleet?


Woohoo! we’ll finally see real x-Wings and Y-Wings and defeat the evil empire once and for all!

I’m all for it, as long as we also start a branch called the Jedi knights, lol.


Sith happens. :smiling_imp:

(I’m all about that Dark side, muahahahah)


Flag of the Russian Space Forces.


Where did you get the idea that a weapons platform in orbit is involved???

That is soooo last century!

Sure, in much the same way that many of our birthdays are last century.

Though much of the time I get the impression the president is just talking and hasn’t actually put much through behind many of the things he says.

Look it up on YouTube!

There is more information available than you let on.

Readers and visitors might learn something that would shock them.

Look what up on YouTube?

I’m betting HAARP or something else will be involved with some eejit doing voice overs about mysterious hidden knowledge.



Maybe it’d be good for him to learn how to spell the branches we already have before we start adding stormtroopers.

All the super secret government projects are on YouTube! They’re THAT secret!

He does pronounce the word “corps” correctly.


I can’t wait to see an American expeditionary force colonizing space in the name of manifest destiny :heart_eyes:

I’d be on a ship in a heartbeat, my only requirement would be that I could bring my dogs.

We will be in a race against Russia and China.
England, France and Spain were the colonizing countries in the 17th and 18th
I think Russia, China and the U.S. will be colonizing in the space race.
