Space Force, but no nukes

spaceforce

So which will it be?

“Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise…” – Captain James T. Kirk (or for the slightly younger set, Captain Jean-Luc Picard)

Or

“I do not fear the dark side, as you do. I have brought peace, freedom, justice, and security to my new empire.” – Darth Vader

Has anyone told Hair Furor Trump that the United Nations Treaty on Outer Space prohibits the use of nuclear weapons in space? Does anyone really think he’s proposing a space force without our ultimate weapons being available? They’re the biggest toy in that toy box, and there’s no way he’s not going to play with them.

Between NASA, the space programs of the Air Force,  SpaceX, and the other private spaceflight companies, I think we’ve got space pretty well covered.

Somebody tell Space Cadet Trump that we can’t afford to have a space force if we have his military parade. I’ll bet he’ll pick the parade.

I don’t for a minute think it’s going to be “phasers on stun”. With Trump on the bridge, it’s going to be “pew pew pew”.  Maybe he can borrow Rick Moranis’ helmet.
