Pentagon 'Worried' about Inter-Space War

The Pentagon has released a new National Military Strategy, the first since 2011, listing ISIS, Iran,  China and Russia as major security threats. RT's Gayane Chichakyan reports.

Note the reference to Pentagon concerns about "inter-space war with a major power".  This is code lingo to Congress that the aerospace industry wants more $$$ for space warfare research, development, testing and deployment.  The industry has long maintained that the space domination program will be the largest industrial project in world history necessitating a dedicated funding source.

Some years ago in the industry publication Space News an editorial outlined the plan to secure such a dedicated funding source.  The industry paper stated that the "entitlement programs" (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and what is left of the welfare program) should be defunded and those funds transferred to the Pentagon for space warfare technology development.

These days we see coordinated corporate attacks on the "entitlement programs" at the national and state levels.
