There are 34 comments on the Washington Times story from Aug 16, 2018, titled GOP divide emerges over Trump's Space Force. In it, Washington Times reports that:

Two House Republican leaders are backing President Donald Trump's proposed Space Force, but key Republicans in the Senate aren't sold on the idea, setting up a debate over establishing and paying for a new branch of the military. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California told The Associated Press the proposal is a "smart way" to address growing investments by China and others in space.

Trump is genius. Air Force jets are quickly morphing into spears and stones. Space-based weapons will win wars of the future.

Trump wants a picture of himself in a spacesuit, that's all. He needs something in cult-of-personality macho to show Putin at his next performance review.

I suggest that the first thing the new branch do is buy an old Buck Rogers getup complete with ray-gun at an auction and find a good Mexican tailor experienced in letting out vintage Mexican wrestling costumes to add a few yards of material. Then, put up a few props in the background, call a few Trumpanzees and hire a few desperate visible-minority actors to clap, and BINGO!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

You sound like a flat Earther. You believe in the fake Global Warning lie but can't see that space-based weapons can hit targets within minutes globally. You probably think Jesus is inside your GPS giving you directions?

You don't know anything about either space or climate change, do you?

The world has gone topsy-turvy. Why do we continue to tolerate this crazed imbecile who has co-opted the oval office?

It's not as though Trump's incompetence is subtle. Two minutes of listening to him is enough to convince any reasonable person that he is a crook and a madman, willing to sell out his country to a foreign nation just because he is weirdly beholden to its leader.

I BESEECH ALL PEOPLE WITH A CONSCIENCE TO HELP US DO ALL WE CAN TO BE RID OF THIS TRAITOR BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

Pence and Trump? Two imbeciles...one of which works for Russia, not America. Any crazy thing he can do at Putins request, he will do.

And then what, Lawrence?

Who to be President?

America has run out of competent leaders.

We are adrift... morally and politically.

But it doesn't bother me. I live in my own little world and it's pleasant here.

The head of NASA, Bolden, quit the day Trump took office. He was behind the falsification of climate data and ran like hell before he got caught. Climate change is nothing but a socialist lie designed to distribute wealth globally through the United Nations. You are either a king-sized sucker or a grifter. The Earth is Yuge and man has never had any effect on the climate of the planet. We are insignificant when it comes to climate and weather. As for Space, I know there is no air in space but there is an Air in Space Museum in DC? Explain that Einstein!

Yes, you are remarkably stupid and intentionally ignorant!

Thanks for the illustration of that.

But the "Air Space" in your head is the real problem, so you better get into that van yourself, you poor thing.

Was your brain ravaged and destroyed by meth like all the other hillbillies?

Obama tried to shut down NASA and actually let the Russians take the lead on America's space program. Now Trump wants to follow JFK's lead in exploring space and you claim he is demented. Was JFK demented? Trump wants to put a mass drive on the Moon to be used to terraform Mars by melting the planet's polar caps and generating an atmosphere. He is the most intelligent man to ever occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

You are an idiot.
Your hatred for the President of the United States has destroyed your mind.
You are literally arguing against the President's establishment of a defense agency to protect American space-based assets against attack by foreign nations.
Clearly, you would allow this republic's communications, geo-spatial and intelligence infrastructure to be destroyed by those foreign nations.
You have already voiced opposition to protecting American citizens from terrorists emigrating illegally. There is nothing you have ever stated in support of America.

You are a madman, trying, not merely willing, to sell out our country to a foreign nation for no reason except to try to validate your hate.

Pretty sure the Air Force already has it covered. Another branch of the military may not be needed at this time.

Instead of another branch or a parade, itd be nice if the Veterans Administration got some attention to help them deal with the upgrades badly needed for Veteran Medical Care, housing and a livable wage.

Trump is all over the VA deficiencies. Unlike Obama who paid lip service and did nothing.

Yes, all you have are stupid, blatant lies, as always, comrade useful idiot.

Here is the truth your St. Petersburg friends want you to pretend does not exist:

The space policy of the Barack Obama administration was announced by U.S. President Barack Obama on April 15, 2010, at a major space policy speech at Kennedy Space Center. He committed to increasing NASA funding by $6 billion over five years and completing the design of a new heavy-lift launch vehicle by 2015 and to begin construction thereafter. He also predicted a U.S.-crewed orbital Mars mission by the mid-2030s, preceded by an asteroid mission by 2025.
