    Rather spend that coin breaking up a couple of organizations that commit more crimes than they solve in the CIA and FBI.

    It had to be created. There will be missteps and miscues. But, whoever controls the space around earth will be immensely powerful. Notwithstanding all of its current problems, I prefer the US as the predominant power.

    Today, I was viewing a video in which a guy was stating that thorugh HAARP tech you can provoke a tsunami, an eartquake, a cardiac arrest, a cancer, and so on…
    Would it be for the unleashing of this tech that a SF is needed? I ask this since there seems nnot to be any benevolent pulsion on Earth right now, it is a if there was a vortex liberating an extreme ammount of demoniacal forces

    Since some threee volcanos erupted in the margin of two consqcutive days, do you think this is today possible restart a volcano with this technology ?

    I am also interested what do you think about the possibility of provoking cardiac and cancer related events.
    I recall now two African presidents die this year of precisely cardiac arrest after refusing lockdown and vaccinate their countries.

    I’ll start with what I said in the space uniform discussion.

    “I fully support Space Force. As a service, they will train and equip the units necessary to make US Space Command successful. If the train and equip function was left to the Air Force and other services, Space Command will be forever hobbled. Stumbling around over what the Space Force “guardians” will wear is small potatoes compared to the critical tasks of managing and directing the development of the right technology, bringing that technology to fruition and training the force needed to employ that technology.”
    The Space Force mission is important, always has been important. When it started, Air Force Space Command, was redesignated as the US Space Force with around 16,000 military and civilian personnel. It will build from there. Space Force will use the Air Force to supply 75% of its support functions, much like the Marine Corps does with the Navy. Among those functions are logistics, base operating support, civilian personnel management, business systems, IT support and audit agencies. The civilian personnel is important. I think an awful lot of Space Force personnel will be civilian.
    Both mission wise and organization wise, Space Force is focused on orbital operations. There’s a wealth of info on the official Space Force website. There is also a good chance that there is an office deep in the bowels of the Pentagon that is thinking and planning how Space Force will confront a possible extraterrestrial invasion, but they’re just thinkers at this point. For now both Space Force and USSPACECOM will be developing, launching, controlling and even disrupting orbital assets for worldly reasons.

    And thank the good Lord we have no less an authority than Scientific American to provide guidance for our discussion:

    Outside of their basic mission of train and equip, they also have responsibility for space doctrine development. I would guess that falls under whatever they have for a training and readiness command. Plus they claim to be the planner & organizer of space forces assigned to the various combatant commands, although that seems to me to be more in SpaceCom’s interest. Probably will be much feedback between the two.

    I do have several questions:
    1] Why is the Office of Naval Intelligence currently researching Unidentified Aerial Phenomena? Shouldn’t this be within the purview of Space Force?
    2] Whatever happened to the Space National Guard? Last I heard Congress was dithering on whether to authorize it.
    3] Why not do research and planning on the removal or neutralization of the million plus bits space debris in orbit? Space Force already operates the tracking systems for SpaceCom so they have intimate knowledge of the hazards.

      Leith,

      Space Force will provide the units and individual personnel to the combatant commands just like the other services do. Neither SPACECOM nor any other command does that.

      ONI probably does the UAP mission because it is Naval pilots and ships that are doing most of the sightings lately. The Navy was given the mission in 2020 with the establishment of the UAPTF under the direction of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security. Since Space Force doesn’t have an ONI equivalent, it would have to AFOSI doing it if the Air Force got the mission.

      Congress is still debating a reserve or national guard component for the Space Force. I think there were some ANG unit that had a space mission. I have no idea what their present status is.

      Space Policy Directive-3 (SPD-3), titled “National Space Traffic Management Policy,” deals with the threat of orbital debris, and directs NASA, in coordination with the Secretaries of State, Defense, Commerce, and Transportation, and the Director of National Intelligence to address the problem. So right now NASA is in charge. The ESA is responsible in Europe. The UN also has a space debris removal treaty. I’d bet that SPACECOM rather than Space Force would be responsible for this under DoD.

    Wrote this over at my place. I believe that the Space Force is going to be a big deal.

    And I still like the uniforms, but in truth, I never gave a shit about Class-A’s anyway. For me, dressing up was khaki’s. My EER’s were always “non-perfect” due to my slovenly appearance. Maxed everything else though

    My guess their first mission will be to clean up all the spank junk with a “United Galaxy Sanitation Patrol Cruiser”. Another guess was to beat China to the punch.
