So here's the thing.
US military, civil and commercial use of space is kind of a big wiggly loosey-goosey mess of none-of-your-goddamn-business. Something like 40% of all Space Shuttle payloads were NRO; the whole reason it was as big as it was is because the NRO was tasked with coming up with how big a shuttle would have to be to launch all their payloads, they came up with the biggest goddamn satellite they could think of so that they wouldn't have to put up with fucking space shuttles and NASA called their bluff and that's how we ended up with the Flying School Bus.
You didn't know that because of course you didn't know that because we named the first one the Enterprise because you proles wanted us to Boldly Go drink your goddamn Tang and STFU. But when the Soviets shot it with a goddamn laser everyone was super upset because IT'S A PEACEFUL PROJECT GUYZ
And the last thing anybody wants with this shit is oversight. The NRO would much rather not exist because now that they do, people can point at them and say "budget" whereas before they just ate up something like 60% of NASA and like 40% of the CIA and they had to report to nobody. And AFSOC does a lot of stuff for sure but do you really think it takes twice the population of NASA to track space debris? REALLY? And now that the SpookWatchers have figured out that Zuma probably wasn't lost and is probably a ship monitoring satellite for Customs or the DEA the fact that our nicely compartmentalized government is not compartmentalized AT ALL when it comes to orbital shit sorta makes this whole governmental bureaucracy shit look like the sham it really is
and putting it all under a "space force" is the sort of thing that does nothing but draw attention to all the shady shit that nobody but me, Dwayne Day and a handful of armchair conspiracy theorists even vaguely give a crap about.
Me and maybe 20 other guys watched the budgetary equivalent of a Nimitz aircraft carrier go up from Jalama Beach on its way to peeping on Bin Laden and thats it.
"The Devil you know." A Phoenix from the goddamn ashes. A KH-11 Mod 4, probably the last of its breed, hauled up and spat forth at a cost of eight billion dollars to keep better tabs on one particular Jihadi in Pakistan with a trellis over his head.
You're going to shove that in a budget?
You're going to keep tabs on that?
You're going to get some TPS reports on that shit?
Dream the fuck on. This isn't a "rare" "great reddit comment" this is some asshole attempting to justify Trump's desire to go Pew Pew Pew.
Right. They're totally intending to better manage the categorization of space debris.
