Trump launches new Pentagon command for space warfare

August 30, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “President Donald Trump launched a new Pentagon command dedicated to warfare in space Thursday, as American armed forces chiefs see China and Russia pressing hard to erode the US advantage in the newest military frontier.

‘This is a landmark day, one that recognizes the centrality of space to America’s security and defense,’ Trump said in a White House ceremony.

‘SpaceCom will ensure that America’s dominance in space is never threatened.’

The new command will elevate space — largely the satellites and high-altitude aircraft essential to modern-day warfare — to a focused theater of combat, the equal of the US Central Command governing the Middle East and the Pacific Command, which manages defenses in the Western Pacific and Asia.

While the US Air Force already has a dedicated space warfare operation, SpaceCom will heighten its importance and foster specialized systems and training for space showdowns.

‘The dangers to our country constantly evolve and so must we,’ said Trump…” (Jesus said: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh– “ Luke 21:25 – 28.   See the next report.)
