France to set up military space command within its Air Force


Readers!
 
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Copycat! French President Emmanuel Macron announced yesterday that he is proceeding with the creation of a space corp within this country’s air force.

Addressing military personnel a day before the Bastille Day parade, Macron said the new military doctrine setting up a space command would strengthen protection of French satellites. He said the investment involved had yet to determined. “To give substance to this doctrine and ensure the development and reinforcement of our space capabilities, a space command will be created next September in the air force,” Macron said, adding that it would later become the Space and Air Force.

Remember the ridicule heaped on Trump when he first proposed the need for reorganizing the U.S.’s military space operations into a single bureaucracy? He first pushed for a new military branch, but I think that was a negotiating tactic to force Congress and the Pentagon to act. As a result, it looks like the U.S. is almost certainly going to get a space corps as part of the Air Force, with all military space operations unified, as many in the military have been begging Washington to do for probably a decade. (This second link describes a bill by the Democratically-controlled House that includes authorization of the space corps, that has now been approved by the entire House.)

Now Macron recognizes the need to reorganize his military space operations as well. Surprise, surprise! Maybe those who kneejerk criticize Trump on everything should learn to think a bit before doing so. You might not agree with everything he does, but he is no fool, and there is almost always logic behind his actions.

    To apply Left Wing and Internationalist logic, if the Europeans, particularly the French, do it, it has to be great and we must emulate them, right?

    But, then the Left’s True Believers have never been bothered by whiplash inducing U-turns in policy. Example: 1938 (Spanish Civil War) The Nazis are Evil, 1939 (Molotov-Ribbentrop Treaty) The Nazis are the friends of the proletariat, 1941 (German Invasion of Russia) The Nazis are Evil. It finally all proved to be too much for many thinking Leftists like George Orwell, already disillusioned by Spain (he’d fought in the International Brigades – see Homage to Catalonia), to stomach. (By the way, 1984, written in reaction to the Soviet Union, was about a Left Wing dictatorship, not a Right Wing one – It was the Left in academia who taught generations that it was about the Evil Conservatives)

    “You might not agree with everything he does, but he is no fool, and there is almost always logic behind his actions.”
    To quote the late President George H W Bush, the Left always manages to “misunderestimate” Donald J Trump – hopefully, right to November, 2020.

    Robert Zimmerman said: “Maybe those who kneejerk criticize Trump on everything should learn to think a bit before doing so. You might not agree with everything he does, but he is no fool, and there is almost always logic behind his actions.”

    This is a perfect example of people who, rather than thinking for themselves, just repeat what other people say. Macron is a Rothschild globalist who will say and do anything to advance their agenda.
