Yes, yes, build a dyson sphere and make the martians pay for it.

We all know the rhetoric, and it doesn't make any more sense now than it did in 2590.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

It's unfortunate that enemies of America are militarizing space, but doesn't that make it sensible to try to prepare to defend against what they might have in mind?

Let's think about this:

1, the Russians are united with the United States aboard Space Station International, but not on Earth??? So what happens when the Russians make their own Space Force if they haven't already? Same about the Chinese, the North Koreans, North Vietnamese, and others? How will the USA Space Force interact with the USA Navy (of water), the USA Army, the USA Marines, and the USA Air Force, and with perhapsual hostile foreign versions of those four USA Armed Forces branches?

2, How will this new USA Space Force interact (if at all) with extraterrestrial beings such as the Kilrothi (Kilrathi) that exist in the Sirius Star System in the Orion Constellation, the Klingons, and other real life extraterrestrial beings that have been depicted as "target practice" in science-fiction TV shows like Wing Commander and Star Trek "respectively"?

3, What new laws will this new USA Space Force be required to obey?

4, How will this new Space Force detect and deter hostile Near Earth Objects such as comets and asteroids that threaten civilizations that are on Earth?

5, Will this new Space Force be painted multiple bright colors like ExoFleet?

You should try to keep up.

There are satellites in earth orbit that can cause all sorts of problems if they are used. They are military weapons. Everything about them is secrete and all governments lie about them.

Yeah, Jeff, I already assumed that there are satellites in Earth orbit that are for military uses.

About #3, I meant to ask what current and new laws will USA Space Force obey?

6, how will USA Space Force be free from substantial technical problems?

7, how much will USA Space Force cost and how will that $ be assured?

Boss, are you suggesting that there are nuclear weapons in orbit? Personally, as a antiwar prick, I would think it's more limited to electronic jamming and communication means. Likely already used by the US in most of their 40 odd wars since WW2.

Who knows? Why ask me.

Libertarians all hope that our military will only ever be used in response to an attack of some sort.

As long as that idea is generally adhered to, who would object?

I think it's a certainty. The most useful are probably designed to produce massive EMPs.

Do you think they are exclusively defensive weapons boss?

I don't think there are any in orbit either defense or offensive. It's something that couldn't be kept secret from the other side and it would just result in senseless escalation. Russia already has the superior nuclear force anyway.
