VP attempts to distract America with Space Force

Postby PaulN on March 1st, 2019, 9:57 pm 

In the Washington Post today, while the US administration continues to unravel under various investigations into fraud, corruption, deceit, tax evasion, sleazy conduct and nepotism, Mike Pence wrote about America's urgent need for a new military branch in outer space, assuring us that global peace may be secured by yet another buildup of military force.

In political circles in the US, this is sometimes referred to as shouting, "look, a squirrel!"

Ha! Maybe more a Lounge topic, but maybe there is a sliver of actual science in the VP's "squirrel."

Kind of an updated Reagan cold war dream.
