Trump Isn’t the Only One Who Wants to Build a Space Force

And yet, while much of the discussion regarding the “space force” concept lately has centered on President Trump’s plan to split off the U.S. Air Force’s space activities into a sixth branch of the military, it turns out there are other countries planning to build — or already building — space forces of their own.

When Trump meets Kim, the sequel: same plot, same sticking points

Episode 2 of ‘Trump Meets Kim’ looks set for February 27-28 in Hanoi, Vietnam. Statements from recent talks between high-level US and North Korean officials ahead of the meeting witnessed Kim Jong-un complimenting President Trump on his ‘positive way of thinking’. Rhetorical flourishes aside, whether the second Trump-Kim summit will be successful depends on what Washington is willing to give away to catalyse a response from North Korea, and what Pyongyang gives away in return. Yet Seoul and Beijing remain key actors, too.

The outcome of the Singapore summit paled in comparison to what was anticipated. Amid the optics of the event came a declaration that contained words Pyongyang has been using even before Kim Jong-un took power: ‘denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula’. Go back to the inter-Korean Joint Declaration of the Denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula in 1992, and we see the same phrase. When the term reappeared on June 12 2018, Pyongyang knew it could simply preach, but not practise, to ‘denuclearise’. In a KCNA commentary in December, Pyongyang clarified that denuclearisation meant ‘removing all elements of nuclear threats from the areas of both the north and the south of Korea and also from surrounding areas from where the Korean peninsula is targeted’. For Washington, it is still complete, verifiable, irreversible, dismantlement.

Russia to pull plug on nuclear arms pact after US does same

MOSCOW (AP) ‘ Following in the footsteps of the U.S., Russia will abandon a centerpiece nuclear arms treaty but will only deploy intermediate-range nuclear missiles if Washington does so, President Vladimir Putin said Saturday.

President Donald Trump accused Moscow on Friday of violating the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty with “impunity” by deploying banned missiles. Trump said in a statement that the U.S. will “move forward” with developing its own military response options to Russia’s new land-based cruise missiles that could target Western Europe.

Moscow has strongly denied any breaches and accused Washington of making false accusations in order to justify its pullout.
