The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

What will be the cost$?

Welcome to Space Force....

The U.S. Space Force unveiled its first official recruiting commercial on May 6, featuring scenes from space, rockets launching, military troops in spacesuits and a glimpse of the secretive X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, an Air Force-owned, unmanned space craft that looks like a small version of a space shuttle and will launch this month

The military space plane will be launched by the Space Force in Florida from Cape Canaveral Air Force Base, which will transition at some point to Cape Canaveral Space Force Base. It will mark the sixth mission into space for the X-37B, but the first conducted by the Space Force, which will be responsible for the vehicle’s launch, its operations in orbit and its landing.

The X-37B completed its most recent mission in October 2019 after spending 780 days in orbit. The 'super drone' has spent a total of 2,875 days in space, serving primarily classified operations, officials said.
