I get that the US wants to protect their satellites and I can understand that there's historically been creative flourish when it comes to naming said agencies/weapons/plans.
But I keep picturing battles in space like in Moonraker when I hear these ridiculous titles. And Pence delivers speeches on the subject like some B-grade actor from Mars Attacks.
Any of the things you fear might happen due to the creation of the "Space Force" was already happening. The creation of this agency is nothing but a bunch of paperwork. It was an attempt by Trump to cement himself into history. Which is silly, his place in history is very well cemented -- it just isn't going to be what Trump thinks it will be.
