This is precisely why we should be funding our space programs. Depending on other nations to get our people in to space was one of the dumbest decisions ever made. That, and not having an alternative in place before we scrapped the shuttle program.
Hey!! Next time, let's ask the Iranians to give us a lift.
Or maybe China will let us tag along when they establish their first lunar colony.
Pretty much every administration since Kennedy has cut funding for NASA.

No longer the ISS but the Russian Space Station (RSS).

All the efforts of the USA to construct the ISS are down the proverbial drain. The Federal Government should have evaluated all the losses we will suffer from drawing a line in the sand with Russia.

The NASA funding issues go back long before our current issues with the Russians. I believe we paid the lions share for funding the ISS in the first place. It was a mistake on the part of NASA not to have something in place once the shuttles were shut down. And that decision was due to funding cuts from congress. Including the current congress and dating back to I don't know when for sure. But I do recall that both shrubs cut funding, slick willy cut funding, etc.

Our standing "President" IS the one who took on Putin AFTER his Administration announced the USA was reducing military might to pre WW2 levels. In other words: our weakness that invited Hitler to attack Europe. So now the Community Organizer Administration announces they will lower military strength to pre WW2 levels and the new Hitler (Putin) jumps at the chance to neutralize Ukraine expanding his empire.

Oh sheet I forgot the "Cold War' is over, been over for 20 years. Surprise it can be restarted at any time, especially when invited by a weak USA. Redeemer, I'll understand if you can't comprehend the deep thoughts here.

Not sure about the WW2 thing but the race to be first in space and to the moon was, for all practical purposes, a direct result of the cold war.

FYI, would Hitler have started WW2 if the USA or other nation had the military might to quickly destroy Hitler's war machine?

So we announce the USA military is being reduced to pre=WW2 strength and Putin steps up and invades the Ukraine. Did Obama invite Putin to go on the offensive by reducing the US military might?

Wolves attack the weak.
