Pentagon chief Jim Mattis defends his reversal on Space Force

Jim Carrey has slammed the Space Force announcement

Now the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence said: "Well, too often, the previous administrations have neglected the growing security threats that are emerging in space, President Trump stated clearly and forcefully".

Few other countries now have a Space Force (Russian, China, France) and leaked intel from unnamed sources indicates that majority do not believe the US Space Force will be operational on time.

After this, the Russian embassy in the US mocked President Trump by making a tweet of their own, with their very own "Space Force" logo.

Pence called out the military activities of Russian Federation and China in his speech at the Pentagon today.

Those who support creating a new branch of the military often point to China's and Russia's tests of anti-satellite missiles and moves to create their own space forces as evidence of the need for the new service. Mattis said Sunday, Aug. 12 he is satisfied that creating a Space Force as a separate military service is the right way to reorganize the Pentagon's approach to space.

But instead, the couple went into hiding as Musk was frantically "scrounging" for investors after his August 7 tweet. Banks also claimed that she was not trying to eavesdrop, but Musk seemed to be scrambling.

"Our foreign competitors and adversaries have already begun weaponizing space, developing new technologies to disrupt vital communications, blind satellites and threatening - just, you look at what they're doing, they've given me rundowns, I've seen things that you don't even want to see what they're doing and how advanced they are", he said.

In every domain, America will always seek peace, the vice president said. But history proves that peace only comes through strength.

But Trump's Space Force would add more than just a competitive presence in space or an additional focus on protection of USA space assets. "And in the realm of outer space, the United States Space Force will be that strength". "We will be so far ahead of them in a very short time, your head will spin". It also will build up larger numbers of servicemen and servicewomen with expertise in space operations. Eighteenth of June, the US leader outlined the seriousness of his intentions when he ordered the Pentagon to create a new branch of the Armed forces.

"Third, the report calls for a new joint organization - the Space Development Agency - that will ensure the men and women of the Space Force have the cutting-edge warfighting capabilities that they need and deserve", he said.
