(Dr. Michael Salla) On March 13, President Donald Trump gave a speech where he said the creation of a U.S. space force was a good idea. This gave new life to a recently defeated Congressional bill to create a space force out of the United States Air Force (USAF) despite strong Pentagon opposition. Why has the Pentagon and the USAF been so firmly opposed to the creation of a separate space force?

The conventional explanation is that it would add an unnecessary and expensive layer of bureaucracy at a time when the Pentagon and USAF budgets are stretched thin to meet global military needs. The real reason, however, is one that takes us a big step closer to disclosure of a USAF run secret space program.
Here is what Trump had to say about the creation of a space force in a speech at the U.S. Marines Corps Air Station Miramar, in San Diego:
In space, the United States is going to do Colonel [John] Glenn [the former astronaut] proud. We are finally going to lead again. … Very soon we are going to Mars… My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea. We may even have a Space Force. We have the Air Force. We’ll have the Space Force. We have the Army, the Navy.
Trump did not appear aware of an attempt by a subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee to create such a force in the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act. The proposal passed in the House of Representative on July 14, 2017, but failed to get the necessary votes in the Senate due to fierce opposition by the Air Force and the Pentagon. Even the White House was opposed saying: “the creation of a separate Space Corps, however, is premature at this time.”
According to House members proposing the creation of the space force, the USAF has been negligent in its responsibilities for “short-changing space programs.”
What the House members did not realize is that the USAF already has established a highly capable space force that has been operating secretly for at least two decades.
One might assume that such a space force would be located within the Air Force’s Space Command, which is among the USAF’s ten major commands. USAF Space Command has as its primary mission the “development and operation of military space and cyberspace technologies”.
