"Over the past few years, there has been a huge uptick in public discourse about the "militarization of space"a phrase that may sound concerning, but it is also nothing new. Much of this discussion has been driven by the founding of the United States Space Force and reestablishment of the United States Space Command. Regardless of how these moves may look to some, as someone who was a party to the discussions surrounding these decisions, I can confidently say that they were not taken lightly, nor were they aimed at establishing the United States as the aggressor in the space domain. The United States did recently formally recognize space as a new warfighting domain, but in order to understand why this happened it is necessary to examine the history of warfare and human activity in the space domain.

As Clausewitz would remind us, "War is merely the continuation of policy by other means." Simply put, war is an extension of politics. When political leaders cannot achieve their objectives through peaceful means, they turn to war as a means to a policy end. James Carafano describes how this plays out across the various domains…"

Fortunately, we own the moon, having planted a flag there first, the new high ground.

What is an "uptick"?
Will it carry Lyme disease?
When they say "huge", how worried should we be?

What is an "uptick"?

They are an advanced breed of tick, larger than a regular tick, smaller than a politician.
They carry something far worse than Lyme disease, Lifted Syndrome (as in your wallet's been lifted).

I haven't heard anyone discoursing about the militarization of space, except here. Maybe I'm just not in the public loop?

Upticks are those that drop from above, as opposed to those that live lower down on the ground, or in the grass.

They are the paratroopers of the parasite world.

' What is an "uptick"? '

It's voiced by Patrick Warburton… ;-)
