Donald Trump just announced that he plans to militarize space and create a free standing “Space Force.” The Space Force idea was described in 2000 in the document “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” by the Project for the New American Century, a Republican neocon think tank group originally funded by The Bradley Foundation.
After the Supreme Court decided the 2000 election in a 5-4 unsigned decision installing George W. Bush into the White House, many of the PNAC signatories joined the administration and fast-tracked the plan.
In the summary section on page v., the PNAC document lists six bullet point issues. One of them is creating a “Space Force”:
CONTROL THE NEW “INTERNATIONAL COMMONS” OF SPACE AND “CYBERSPACE” and pave the way for the creation of a new military service — U.S. Space Forces — with the mission of space control.
This is exactly what Donald Trump announced. It is straight out of the PNAC agenda.
When Donald Trump said that he would ‘rip up’ the Iran deal before the election, he was signifying that he would resume PNAC. The desire to destroy Iran was the centerpiece of the PNAC plan and the most important goal that was not accomplished in the six years that the PNAC agenda governed. The need to control Iran was all over the PNAC document, like here from page 75:
The current American peace will be short-lived if the United States becomes vulnerable to rogue powers with small, inexpensive arsenals of ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads or other weapons of mass destruction. We cannot allow North Korea, Iran, Iraq or similar states to undermine American leadership, intimidate American allies or threaten the American homeland itself. The blessings of the American peace, purchased at fearful cost and a century of effort, should not be so trivially squandered.
In those six years, George W. Bush began making inroads for the militarization of space. Later, some of the new space policy was reversed. But now, under Donald Trump, it’s full steam ahead to the end goal of the independent U.S. Space Force.
Those who do not want to believe that Donald Trump has resumed the PNAC agenda like to point at what some of the most notorious neocons are saying about Donald Trump — ‘neocons hate Trump.’
To those who are so easily hypnotized into believing those ‘neocons’: watch what they do, not what they say. Other neocons are entirely on board, and particularly Donald Trump’s hand-selected cohorts John Bolton and Rudy ‘Mr. 9-11’ Giuliani.
Loud-spoken opposition and outrage against Donald Trump is a selling point for those who are looking for anti-establishment people in government. Neocons are aware of this basic psychology and they are using it to keep people attached to the “outsider” Donald Trump. Psychology 101.
PNAC orders a “Space Force.” Donald Trump announces a “Space Force.” Perfect match. It’s what they do. All else is propaganda talk.
