President Bush has signed a new National Space Policy that rejects future arms-control agreements that might limit U.S. flexibility in space and asserts a right to deny access to space to anyone "hostile to U.S. interests."

The document, the first full revision of overall space policy in 10 years, emphasizes security issues, encourages private enterprise in space, and characterizes the role of U.S. space diplomacy largely in terms of persuading other nations to support U.S. policy.

"Freedom of action in space is as important to the United States as air power and sea power," the policy asserts in its introduction.

WOW! I can see how space can become the next wild west frontier, with all the advertisers and real estate entrepenuers, not to mention hostile nations tampering with our secret satellites.

US TO CONTROL SPACE

Thank god we finally did this, it's impossible to keep a nation secure with one hand tied behind your back(not that his will make us more secure). Plus we need to get more private buisness into space so that someday it's cheap enough for me to make the trip

Can a single country claim 'space'? This is the hight of arrogance, and shouldn't be followed by any country. I believe that if you have a plan, and an experienced space program, then you should go ahead, full steam. Otherwise we're threatened with being left behind as a race.

It appears to me the only hostile nation in the scenario is the US. Denying a country from access to space is ridiculous, trying to be a bully of the group.

They arent denying anyone access to space. That is a ridiculous statement Knights... They are denying threats.


Basically, they want their hands in whats going on out there for MY defense. Frankly...THANK GOD.

It's people who are complacent like yourself that allowed a total takeover of France by hitler, costing hundreds of thousands of lives.

Can you say "Full-Spectrum Warfare", "Transformational Paradigms" and the "New American Century"? Not a darn thing anyone really can do about it at this point. The exercise of this claim may well be on the horizon 16 times a day already. That this has happened now demonstrates that some are at least contemplating this exercise as do-able.

I am glad that the current space-faring nations are at least on somewhat civil-terms... publicly, for now. Who knows what the big "three" may have as unannounced military space programs already. Quite a "claim", I hope the prospects are worth the assay registration.

In order to claim territory, isn't it customary to 'put a flag on it'? At least that's what Eddie Izzard says. And if that's the case, didn't Russia claim space with Sputnik?

Yep... Space is Russia's and they should be using it to defend their own interests and their own people.

Threats? Did Iraq pose a threat? If say, country X, wanted to extend their space program and the US didn't like it it would be the perfect excuse for war, of course they wouldn't do that though!

Well what can I say, what an idiotic statement! I don't/ can't even reply to such a ridiculous claim!

EVERYONE has a right to access to space, whether they are on good terms with the US or not.

Hell no! Bush is trying to have the best of both worlds. (Yes, the pun was intended)
Bush is so high and mighty about "Terrorism this! Terrorism that!"
So what's the modern stereotype of a terrorist?
Cave-dwelling, gun-wielding donkey riding anti-American.
Unless they get ahold of a magical flying donkey, I don't think they would be "hostile to America in space".
If that's the case, what other so-called 'hostiles' is he referring to?!

At least there won't be any hostile natives!


*NEWS UPDATE!!* Today the Bush administration Nuked space, hoping to hit several UFO's that were clearly hostile, and directly ignored his signing of the space policy.

Nothing to see here - move along people, move along!


PNAC



The PNAC also proposes to control the new "international commons" of space and "cyberspace" and pave the way for the creation of a new military service — U.S. Space Forces — with the mission of space control.

Protecting us in space from who? Osma out there?

The question is can they protect us from themselves?


If people drop their weapons there would be no war...
the thought of having the last word, or proving oneself, basically fear...drives people to remain slaves of a few that rule the rest.
(as far as hitler, check out the Bush family connection to him)

But that to is as it is...

Peace

Bush is annoying. I know he is trying to develop space weapons. He is Kim Jong-il of the universe and the Earth will become North Korea of the universe. Please do us all outside the US a favor and get rid of him.

Oh cool. More stuff to fight about. So... when are we going to unite... and as the poster above me stated the obvious... not become the North Korea of the Universe? Really... what does Earth think it is? Pretty soon we're going to have sanctions placed on US by the extra-terrestrials... or something of that nature. They won't put up with this... either that or they'll sit back and watch us destroy ourselves. Where else can we place weapons? Hmmm.... *thinks* As long as there are weapons there will be war. Space was the final option to say... "hey, let's unite on this." Where to from here? Vote for me... presidential candidate of '08... change the age restriction to 23. =) Anyway, have a good day... peace on Earth.

Infinite love and eternal peace.

Oh please! Who's a threat to you exactly? You get attacked twice on your soil by over-seas terrorists in the history of the US and now you've tightened up security so much alot of you will eventually allow armed guards help you take a piss when you go the john! For your "security" of course.

I'm torn between liking American people personally and hating you politically. If it were judged on politics I'd want you guys wiped of the map, the arrogance of your government is unbelievable!

If I could build a rocket ship and wanted to start travelling the cosmos and the US Government said I needed clearance I'd tell them which one of my arse cheeks they can kiss first.

I wouldn't mind so much but it's not as if the US Government actually backs their space program with the funds they really need. The cheek of it!

Sorry! These policy makers have let America down! The introduction should have read:

"Freedom of action in THE ENTIRE OBSERVABLE UNIVERSE AND ALL SUPER AND HYPER DIMENSIONS THEREIN, is as important to the United States as air power and sea power."

It is my belief that all it really is, is the US's ability toput/use weapons in space.

Many countries are very against this-especially Russia.

That said, it is believed that Russia has has weapons based in satilites in space for many years.

Surely the right to deny anyone access to space should be held by the United Nations, and certainly not a single country whose own constitution is invalid because they have been in a state of emergency for 73 years giving extended powers to a leader who has been consistently keeping his country in the red since he was elected and who appears to be suffering from pre-senility dementia.

I think that it's more likely to be the country with the biggest guns that haas control over space travel. It has nothing to do with any legislation passed, and it's only enforcable through military action.
