How does it sound to fulfil a fictional dream? Some of you might be dreaming of traveling through time, while some might be thinking of meeting their doppelgangers from other Universes, some might want to be the first ones to climb Olympus Mons, or some might want to test the Time dilation effect. Everyone has these dreams. But, What if I told you that the US Government is launching its own Guardians of Galaxy? Oh, I meant a Space Force. And yes, you read that right. According to our sources, President Donald Trump signed SPD-4 on February 19th, 2019. It’ll become the sixth branch in the Pentagon, but, as we speak, the Congress might be reviewing the decision about it. Well, it’s going to be a Hexagon, sooner or later.

The Objective of the Space Force
As Mr. President says, this project is to extend the American Dominance in Space. *Sarcasm Intended* Little does he know, that the Universe is either expanding or is already infinite, so he will never be able to do that as all of it will be a fraction of 0. *Sarcasm Over* Now, in my opinion, this might be the only thing he did great in his career. Perhaps, it might not be a good idea after all as if the United States has a Space Force for their own protection, other countries might as well start their own organizations. So, according to me, a better idea will be to let the United Nations launch a Space Force to look after the world.
What is SPD?
SPD, short for Space Policy Directive is a series of Orders, signed with reference to Space. Just so you know, SPD-1 directed Astronauts to go to the Moon again, while SPD-2 ordered regulations for the Commercial Space Companies. SPD-3 was a Space traffic law to manage space traffic just so we’ll be having it in the future.
Will the Congress approve SPD-4?

As per the Union of Concerned Scientists, approval of SPD-4 might lead to a greater weaponization of Space. If the World War 3 happens, then the World might get in great danger of ending, and as Alber Einstein predicted, we’ll be fighting the Fourth World War with sticks and stones(If the next gen humans discover them).
According to Albert Einstein,
I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones!
The cost of this program is still unknown, but both Democrats and Republicans have questioned about the budget. Now, the striking thought in everyone’s mind is about the Shutdown for raising funds for the wall. If he’ll spend every penny for just building a wall, then how will he even initiate this program? I’m still with the decision that the United Nations should do it, instead of the United States.
As a matter of fact, this idea is not actually Donald Trump’s original idea. It dates back to the year 2001 when the Former Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfeld organised a meeting for the Marines, Air Forces, etc., to discuss how to utilise the National Security Space Assets.
The US of A will be having its own ‘Space Force’, after getting a green light from the American Congress. As signed by the US President, SPD-4 is a directive, which states the establishment of a Space Force. Unfortunately, the rise of such an organisation may lead to weaponization of Space, as other countries will start following, too. So, the better option is for the United Nations to do it. The most baffling question is how will he initiate the program if he spends everything on the wall?
Thanks for reading. What do you think, will there be a wall or an entire Space Force? Tell us in the comments and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.
