Should the US establish a Space Force?
The Air Force
reportedly controls 90%
of military space funding yet it has not kept up as other countries have developed threats to US space systems
In 2007 China destroyed one of its own satellites with a ground-based missile.
The Chinese have already created a space force in 2015. The US must match this competition.
Space is the new frontier. The United States needs to push the bounds and create new forms of weaponry to maintain its technical advantage against China and Russia.
Reforming current systems is more practical then creating an entire new military branch.
If a separate branch was created, it would still compete for the same spending.
