On August 10, the newly created U.S. Space Force released its “Spacepower Doctrine,” defining its core identity and missions in space. Space Force will consider outer space to be a warfighting domain wherein military force will be projected into the Earth-Moon orbital environments to protect U.S. national interests and security.
In the short term, this means Space Force will compete with the rival aerospace forces established by China and Russia for space superiority. In the long term, Space Force is destined to clash with secret space programs run by a shadowy consortium of transnational corporations, and an even more elusive “Dark Fleet”.
The latter is claimed by multiple insiders to belong to a German breakaway colony that transferred from Antarctica to Mars, taking with it, millions of people recruited by false inducements or forced into a life of slave labor.
The 40-page document titled “Space Capstone Publication: Spacepower Doctrine for Space Forces” sets the tone for what follows with a 1962 statement by former President John F. Kennedy:
The eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, but by a banner of freedom and peace. [p. xiv]
The primary purpose of the document is described as follows:
The Space Capstone Publication is the inaugural doctrine manual for the United States Space Force, providing a basis for training and education, and informs decision-making, mission analysis, objectives, and the development of military space strategy in support of national security, national defense, and national military strategies. [p. xiv]
The document describes how space has dramatically changed from a domain involving peaceful cooperation and scientific exploration by the international community:
Space was once a sanctuary from attack, but the emergence, advanced development, and proliferation of a wide range of demonstrated counterspace weapons by potential adversaries has reversed this paradigm. Today, space, like all other domains, is realized to be contested due to the increasing threat to orbiting assets by adversary weapons systems. There is no forward edge of the battle area behind which military spacecraft can reconstitute and recover. Spacecraft remain in orbit through peace and war where they are potentially at risk from adversary counterspace capabilities and the hostile space environment. [p. 7]
The document goes on to explain how Space Force plans to integrate other nations sharing common interests similar to how the NATO Alliance was formed around the U.S. as the driving force to prevent aggression from the Warsaw Pact:
Military space forces are the warfighters who protect, defend, and project spacepower. They provide support, security, stability, and strategic effects by employing spacepower in, from, and to the space domain. This necessitates close collaboration and cooperation with the U.S. Government, Allies, and partners and in accordance with domestic and international law. [p. xiii]
Space Force, however, plans to be far more than merely a multinational military operation:
Spacepower requires explorers, diplomats, entrepreneurs, scientists, developers, and warfighters. Military space forces — protectors of America’s space interests — are first and foremost the warfighters who protect, defend, and project U.S. spacepower. These professionals must simultaneously commit themselves to two demanding professions: warfighting and the mastery of space. [p. xiv]
Space Force’s overall mission is stated to be vital to long term U.S. national interest:
Access to space is essential to U.S. prosperity and security — it is a national imperative. The many benefits our Nation derives from space include mass communications, financial and economic information networks, public safety, weather monitoring, and military technology. Like any source of national power, the United States must cultivate, develop, and protect these benefits in order to secure continued prosperity. [p. 12]
Space is considered to be the future of economic growth and entrepreneurial activity, which is high among Space Force’s core goals:
Today, the entirety of economic and military space activities is confined to the geocentric regime; however, commercial investments and new technologies have the potential to expand the reach of vital National space interests to the cislunar regime and beyond in the near future. As technology marches forward, U.S. military spacepower must harmonize with the other instruments of power to protect, defend, and maintain the Nation’s strategic interests in space. [p. 14]
As far as future military conflict in space is concerned and the role of international law, this is what Space Force’s capstone document has to say:
Military spacepower is inextricably linked to war. Military space forces must operate in this new warfighting domain to contribute to winning our Nation’s wars. Thus, war’s enduring nature and modern character shape and define military spacepower… [p. 16]
In keeping with international law, the United States acknowledges that the use of space is for peaceful purposes, while preparing for the reality that space must be defended from those who will seek to undermine our goals in space. [p. 17]
The capstone document provides an expansive view of potential enemies in space, and what Space Force needs to be prepared to do to protect U.S. interests:
Space warfare targets the mind of an adversary and seeks to neutralize their capability and will to resist. Military space forces compete against thinking actors who threaten our Nation’s prosperity, security, or political aims. Thus, military space forces must prepare to outwit, outmaneuver, and dominate thinking, competent, and lethal aggressors who are attempting to thwart U.S. actions…
Military spacepower cannot unilaterally win wars, but like landpower, seapower, airpower, or cyberpower, its success, absence, or failure could prove catastrophically decisive in war. Because military spacepower has the potential to be the difference between victory and defeat, it must be viewed with equal importance as military power in any other domain. This observation is the strategic imperative for creating the United States Space Force as an independent military Service capable of maximizing military spacepower as a distinct and vital formulation of military power. [p. 21]
Evaluating the full significance of the capstone document requires appreciating both the near and long term challenges that Space Force has to face. In the short term, Space Force has to deal with the aerospace forces of both China and Russia, which have been modernizing rapidly with the growth in their respective economies.
China’s economy, measured in Purchasing Power Parity, has already overtaken the U.S., and it is steadily increasing its military expenditures, especially in space which it considers to be the strategic high ground and the U.S. military’s Achilles Heel.
The possibility of China launching a “Space Pearl Harbor” is something that weighs heavily on the minds of U.S. military strategists, as I discuss at length in Rise of the Red Dragon (2020). Space Force’s immediate goal will be to protect the U.S. satellite grid from a surprise Chinese attack, which would otherwise incapacitate the U.S. military all over the planet.
However, it is the long-term challenges to Space Force that are the most intriguing, and require considering a much wider scope of covert activities that have been occurring in space that date back to the World War II era.
It is crucial to keep in mind that Space Force will be covertly absorbing a Secret Space Program (SSP) established by the U.S. Air Force. The USAF SSP, which I described at length in the U.S. Air Force Secret Space Program and Shifting Extraterrestrial Alliances (2019), has covertly deployed squadrons of spacecraft using advanced antigravity propulsion, new energy technologies, and electromagnetic weapons systems.
These craft were reverse engineered from captured German and extraterrestrial spacecraft acquired after the end of World War II. Major US aerospace corporations collaborated with a transnational corporate consortium to secretly build these advanced craft for the USAF. The most advanced craft, however, were built for other customers, including a corporate-run SSP called the Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate.
For much of its history, the USAF SSP operated covertly, performed ad hoc missions, had dubious legal standing, was funded by a CIA controlled black budget, and worked closely with the Deep State, a transnational corporate space program, and breakaway German colony in Antarctica.
All that changed in 2017, when the USAF learned about a far more powerful and better equipped US Navy SSP deploying battle groups led by kilometer long space carriers. Leaders of the USAF SSP realized that they had been deceived by the Deep State and their corporate/German allies who had not provided the most advanced technologies to them, as promised. See my 2019 book for more details on why the USAF SSP shifted its allegiance.
The emergence of Space Force will eventually end the chaotic and ad hoc operations of the USAF SSP, and transfer all of the latter’s space assets into the control of a highly disciplined, transparent and lawfully established military space service working for U.S. national interests.
The ramifications of the Space Capstone Publication are therefore vitally important when considered in the context of how the assets of the USAF SSP were historically used to aid rogue operations contrived and controlled by the Deep State.
The long-term challenges faced by Space Force are fivefold. First, it will have to deal with nation-state peers such as China and Russia, which have the capability of launching a Space Pearl Harbor.
Second, Space Force will need to manage the more technologically advanced space programs of rogue non-state entities, the Interplanetary Corporate Conglomerate and the Dark Fleet, which possess fleets of more advanced and powerful spacecraft.
Third, Space Force is destined to eventually merge with the US Navy SSP, whereby it becomes fully capable of handling threats posed by national rivals, rogue space entities, and aggressive extraterrestrial civilizations.
Fourth, Space Force will eventually have to confront an illicit galactic slave trade where millions of humans are taken off-planet each year and traded into a life of slavery. Will history repeat itself whereby Space Force emerges as a modern day Royal Navy whose 19th century West Africa Squadron intercepted slave ships on the high seas, but now ends the slave trade in Deep Space?
Finally, how much and when will Space Force leaders disclose to the American and World publics the truth about the dire situation confronting humanity with multiple secret space programs and extraterrestrial civilizations interacting with one another, and humanity? Will Space Force be a conduit for full disclosure or limited hangouts that deceive humanity for years to come?
