Anyone with half a brain would recognize how important being able to control the space around earth is.  Most communication, especially regarding military is satellite based.  So is the use of most specialized weapons.  Itís the future of all military operations.
Nobody is claiming that the U.S. should abdicate the ability to track and/or deal with space-based threats. But before Stubby McBonespurs created Space Force, such things were done by the Air Force, and it could have continued to do so if they were so tasked.

The issue is not "should the U.S. deal with space-based threats/communication", but should they waste the resources to make it a separate branch of the military, and just how embarrassed should they be in using a Star Fleet ripoff as a logo and the name "guardians". Neither installs much confidence in the civilian population.

Well, it makes sense, now that we know Chris Pratt is a gay Trumper.

Yes, there are huge strategic reasons for the space force.

such strategery that Trumpy's grandiose intent was toned down to reality when Space Force simply became a branch within the Department of the U.S. Air Force - strategery!

That too.  Steve Carell is amazing.

Except of course there aren't.

As pointed out before... prior to Stubby McBonespurs creating space force, the task of handling space-based threats largely fell on the air force (Space Command), something they had no problem doing.

Now, the U.S. is spending billions of dollars (money that could be used to, you know, buy equipment needed by soldiers) to create a new military branch that doesn't even have the infrastructure to function completely independently (i.e. they will still need resources from other military branches), but with whatever overhead comes with having multiple military branches work together.

You're partly right.  In a way, there's always been a space force, as it's been part of the Air Force and Navy.  It's just now it's own entity with an expanded role.  So it's much ado about nothing.  The fuss is entertaining though!

The really entertaining fuss is watching donny get ready to get his ass kicked down the road. I guess he's now gearing up to try and Space Force the EC vote off into orbit.  ::)
