What Trump's Space Force Busts Russia Doing Should Alarm You!
Since Trump initiated a military branched named ' U.S. Space Force' there have been a ton of memes making jokes about the branch. Mostly, Democrats have harped that the decision to launch a military space program was unnecessary but zTrump's having the last laugh. As it turns out, he was right, we do need to keep an eye in the sky.
Space Force just discovered is unnerving. They claim to have found a strange Russian spacecraft hovering over a U.S. satellite. Shadowing the vital piece of equipment for some unknown reason.
These are the same satellites we use here at home and in surveillance worldwide, so having Russia showing one should be enough to concern anyone.
And still, there was nothing said about this new discovery on mainstream media.
According to Time, Gen. John “Jay” Raymond, commander of the newly minted U.S. Space Force, says the Russian spacecraft began maneuvering toward the American satellite shortly after being launched into orbit in November, at times creeping within 100 miles of it. “We view this behavior as unusual and disturbing,” Raymond says. “It has the potential to create a dangerous situation in space.” Raymond says the U.S. government has expressed concern to Moscow through diplomatic channels.
The confrontation marks the first time the U.S. military has publicly identified a direct threat to a specific American satellite by an adversary. The incident parallels Russia’s terrestrial encounters with the U.S. and its allies, including close calls between soldiers, fighter jets and warships around the world. Observers worry that space is now offering a new theater for unintentional escalation of hostilities between the long-time adversaries.
Pentagon, White House and Congressional backers, say the incident demonstrates the need for the Space Force, which President Donald Trump established in December when he signed the National Defense Authorization Act into law. It became the first new military service since the Air Force was created in 1947.
