Overseas network August 1, according to the Russian satellite network quoted us media news that the United States Department of defense on the formation of a draft report on the space army showed that the United States Department of defense plans to start the space army in the next few months.
It is reported that the draft report of the US Department of defense on the formation of space forces will be submitted to Parliament within a week. The draft showed that the US Department of defense proposed the formation of 4 space forces, and 3 of them will be formed in August. In addition, the US The Pentagon will draft a draft law on the final formation of the space force by the end of 2018. As part of the Trump administration's budget proposal for 2020, the bill will be submitted to Congress early next year.
For the establishment of space forces, Trump seems to have been premeditated for a long time. In March 2018, Trump offered to add a "space force" to the U.S. military, but to most people, it was just a joke. In May 1st, Trump mentioned the matter again and said he was "seriously considering" the establishment of a new military department. In June 18th, Trump formally announced the formation of the "space force" and called it "national security". Trump once declared that the United States is committed to being a space leader and is not going to lag behind Russia and China in this area.
Russia has clearly opposed the formation of space forces in the United States. Russia warned that the US plan to build space forces could lead to disaster. If the United States dares to violate the Outer Space Treaty and put weapons of mass destruction into orbit, Moscow will be ready for a "strong retaliation".
It is reported that the United States signed the outer space treaty in 1967, which prohibits all countries from deploying nuclear weapons and any other weapons of mass destruction on the upper part of the earth's orbit. It also prohibits countries from testing any weapons in outer space, or establishing military bases on the moon and other celestial bodies. (overseas network Zhang Zhen)
