U.S. Space Command, is a major command of the United States Air Force, with its headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. AFSPC supports U.S. military operations worldwide through the use of many different types of satellite, launch and cyber operations. Operationally, AFSPC is an Air Force component command subordinate to U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), a unified combatant command. It is the primary space force for the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Air Farce is commanded by fighter jocks. They like go fast, high tech, high dollar planes that can shoot down other go fast, high tech planes in aerial combat. They look down on everybody else in the service, regardless of the utility of other things that the AF provides that enhance all-around war fighting capability. Taking the Space Force out from under the AF might be a good thing.

Pilots are the closest thing we have ever had to astronauts. They are in good shape and good standing with our government. The years of training and high washout rate makes it tough for infiltrators to sneak in. Starting a new force, putting them in charge of satellites, etc., is just a way for Trump to get information to the Russians about our defenses.
How about a Fire Force ? If a foreign terror group ever claimed responsibility for wildfires started in the US, warmongers would suddenly be concerned that we now have wildfires somewhere in the US almost all year. And, with more droughts and high temps. expected, things will only get worse.
The kneejerk terror victims of our public are overlooking an attack that costs the US billions every year, destroys lives and raises insurance rates. And, sadly, more people are dying because of these fires, which are way too easy to start.
Before Pancho Villa Trump goes off to tilt at windmills in space, maybe he should focus on the fires out of control in his own back yard.

I worked a project with the AFSPC from 2003 to 2011. None of them were like that. They were smart, patriotic, dilligent men and women who were serious about their work. You do them a great discredit here, Snidely.

What's the difference between the Air Farce and the Boy Scouts?
The Boy Scouts have adult supervision.
