​Talk Nation Radio: Nukes, Space Force, and War Pigs in Space

The Space Force was a bipartisan idea.  Rep Jim Cooper (D-Tennessee) in particular was a big supporter:
  The original proponents of a separate military branch for space — Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) — are poised for a victory….
Much of the public believes that President Trump conceived the idea of a Space Force but that is a misconception, Cooper said. “This is not a Trump idea. He tried to hijack it long after the House Armed Services Committee voted 60-1 to establish a Space Corps,” he added. “Trump’s blatant support of a Space Force does not make it a Republican idea.”

Laura Grego, a physicist and senior scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, called the Space Force a “very bad idea.”
