Wouldn't bombs placed in orbit have to be remote controlled through radio signals? That sound like it would open an attack window for hacking.

Unless each of them is also a human space station which is much more expensive since they have to train them and send rockets up to restock supplies, and they would probably want as many stations as possible so they can still retaliate in case a station is attacked.

The whole scenario reminds me of the Philip K. Dick novel Dr. Bloodmoney where a bunch of thermonuclear weapons are placed in space and then one day suddenly start to fire randomly at whatever is underneath them right now.

I see so many people sharing this 'Space force' news as some kind of joke – people are missing the point! The Pentagon wants to violate the 'Outer Space Treaty' so the USA can put bombs and missiles in space to hover over countries they don't like. If we all understood it and explained it this way, people would be horrified and not just laughing at Trump.

@bob @jd "Conservatism", like most right-wing ideologies, is all about gaining power through manipulation. Truth doesn't matter; what matters is how many people you can convince.

@jd There is very little intellectual consistency to conservatism. It's more about feelgood narratives and power grabs.

@jd the *one* time that delegating moral authority to a private company bites them in the ass and they throw a fit; go figure.
