The Obama administration is launching a new space arms-control initiative that critics say will lead to restrictions on U.S. military activities in space, a key U.S. strategic war-fighting advantage.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to announce the initiative as early as Tuesday. The plan will be built on work contained in a European Union draft code of conduct for space that the Pentagon and State Department have criticized as too restrictive.

I would sure like to know how many nuclear warheads we have today, and how many are actually ready to be used in case of an attack.

The warning signs with this guy are full on red alert.

The word, “Treaty” was absent. I suppose there is no need for two-thirds vote from the Senate if Chairman Obama says so.

The US military should OWN outer space so no other power on this planet can threaten our country. To unilaterally abdicate this position is treason. No more need be said.

Sure seems like we are being set up in many ways. The price of oil is going to go up, they have shut down our own supply while devaluing the currency.

The closing of many of our factories with the auto, now they cant be used to produces defense products if needed.

Cut to our military, release of marine video- just as cuts are trying to be pushed. Increased activity of TSA, DHS and their monitoring, scanning of us. Intentionally destabilizing the Muslim countries.

Exactly my position. I would expend a considerable portion of the military budget towards that goal.

How about totally owning the seas and every other country that we perceive as a threat?

Sounds like what Hitler wanted too.

Right, no one else has the right to space bar you lot.
Uh-huh, ok. America owns outer space now, does it?.

What about the Russians?. After all, they were first in space, still have a space programme as you are shutting yours down, and they are one of the few nations that has the money, men and resources to ‘do’ space in a military sense. First in, and still in, and a major nation. Dont you think they will think they have the right to ‘rule space’?.

And what about major nations who are your allies like ourselves or France or Germany, nations that could in future have military plans for space and have the capability to do so. You gonna stop the British from space military?.

Me think if we try to take over space there will be at least two countries that say no and that will be China and Russia.

Why do you think that China put on a little show of shooting down satellites?

If China by them selves invaded the USA we do not have enough ammo to kill all of them.

They wouldn’t and couldn’t send all 1.3 billion. There are not enough ships in the world.

They could, however, team up with some nasty people in Mexico and come up that way. They could cause some serious problems with just thousands.

they could come across the Bering straights from Russia and fan out through Canada and as you said come up through Mexico. I had heard one of those prophecies of the endtimes and of China doing just that coming up through Mexico and through the gulf of Mexico and coming down through Canada. By the time it was over there would be nothing left to fight for land wise.

The Drug Cartels in Mexico and the US (Yes, they’re here) are already tying in with the radical groups like La raza, Aztlan, etc. Couple that with radical muslims and sleeper cells, it will get ugly.

China could watch and then come in and mop up.

Because the trends, good, bad, or indifferent, I see in America seem to usually start in the UK.

I would like to see the USA cut ties with the UK because I don’t want to see it get dragged down into the gutter of destruction like I see where the UK is headed.

In my opinion the UK has become a more of a curse than a blessing. Don’t worry. The Muzzies will be running the whole show there within a generation or so. You probably won’t mind seeing yourself and your descendants living under Sharia.

As the US steps down China is stepping up to become the superpower of the 21st century. They will dominate militarily, economically, as well as space, the Moon, and probably Mars.

You are exactly correct! Before this Impostor-In-Chief was elected I knew that he was really bad, bad, bad, bad, bad news. The American people were conned into voting for him and now we are getting to see first hand the damage he is doing. We’ll be reaping the problems created from his actions for years, probably decades, to come.

Almost everything he is doing and touches is dedicated toward destroying America on as many fronts as possible. But you have to remember that this has been going on for the better part of 50+ years. Obama is simply the guy who is trying to strike the final, death-imparting blow.

I was listening to a radio program tonight after work that has the CEO of the atomic testing museum. And the question of suit case nukes were possible and he said in the 1980-90’s the Israelis had developed a nuke that fit on the end of a mortar shell.

I heard that program and as always, dozed off when it got interesting. I subscribe to the Coast to Coast daily email and enjoy it. A lot of things are covered on that program that aren’t heard elsewhere...and not all of it is tin foil stuff. You know that.

The guy so clearly hates the United States that it’s demoralizing to see folks offer up any support for him whatsoever. If this nation were right side up, he’d already have been impeached and removed from office. Strike that, he would never have been elected.

My wife attends meetings with people quite often. Some of the women are so enamored with the guy, that they can’t help but sing his praises.

Under Clinton, and now again, I seriously wonder if women should be allowed to vote. Something like 67% of women voted for Bill Clinton because he was so dreamy/a bad boy.
