…the Pentagon?

"The Chinese military seems to agree that the current U.S. approach to space is hindered by some serious shortcomings.

If the United States is to maintain military advantage in space, as President Trump has promised – and as his new Space Force is meant to do – U.S. policy and strategic decisions should be informed by an understanding of China’s ambitions to become an “aerospace superpower” (航天强国) – and how the Chinese military has reorganized itself to seek dominance in space (制天权).

Start with the way space is characterized in China’s military strategy: the “new commanding heights in strategic competition.” Once a sanctuary for U.S. satellites that have fostered unparalleled military capability, space is now recognized by Chinese military strategists as a critical U.S. vulnerability.

LOL. I'm sure this news might come as a surprise to a few skeptics. :)

Here is my takeaway from this Communist China Space Force:

Lesson #1 It is not a public opinion poll, and certainly not a global one. It is internal. A national matter.
Lesson #2 No one has demanded that Communist China make their space force a UN one. Or that it be a multinational one.
Lesson #3 If it's the end of the world now that the US has proposed one, where were those same people when Communist China started theirs?

So easy, even a caveman can figure this out. :)
