According to Russia today, the first US space force has been deployed in Qatar, a middle east country. The squadron, composed of 20 US troops, will be responsible for satellite operations, monitoring “enemy forces” and preventing space conflicts, the report said. In this regard, RT joked: the United States originally deployed the first “space force” to Qatar, rather than an outer space planet. The squadron, composed of 20 US troops, arrived at Uday Air Force Base in the desert southwest of Doha, Qatar’s capital, in late August, the report quoted Todd Benson, commander of the “space force” of the US Air Force central command, as saying. The Qatari based force will be responsible for satellite operations, monitoring “enemy forces” and preventing space conflicts, Benson said. He added that more pilots would join their “core space operations team” in the future.
in response to the US move, RT joked in the report that the United States originally deployed the first “space force” to Qatar rather than an outer space planet. “We are beginning to see that other countries are preparing to aggressively extend the conflict into space,” Benson said in an interview with the associated press. We must participate in the competition to defend and protect all the interests of our country. ” Benson did not disclose the names of specific countries in his speech, the report said. However, RT believes that the deployment of us “space forces” in the Persian Gulf seems to be related to the recent ongoing conflict between Washington and Iran. The report said Iran successfully launched a satellite earlier this year, but the launch was severely criticized by Washington. Washington claimed the launch was further evidence that “Tehran is developing missile capabilities to threaten its neighbors.”. < p > < p > according to RT, in December 2019, according to an initiative of US President trump, the US Congress passed a bill to formally establish the “space force”, which aims to “ensure the freedom of movement of the United States in space and deter possible aggressive activities”. According to the report, the US military’s action to establish a space force has been criticized by China and Russia. In response to trump’s definition of space as a combat area and approval of the establishment of the sixth service space force of the United States, senior colonel Wu Qian, spokesman of the Ministry of national defense, said in December last year that outer space is the common property of all mankind. China has always advocated the peaceful use of outer space, opposed the weaponization of outer space and an arms race in outer space, and even more opposed to the use or threat of use of force against outer space objects. The U.S. side set up a space force under the pretext of the so-called military threat of other countries. It is intended to seek absolute military superiority in space, which will easily lead to an arms race in outer space, seriously threaten the peace and security of space and global strategic stability.
