Lost in Space: A Realist and Marxist Analysis of US Space Militarization

Lost in Space: A Realist and Marxist Analysis of US Space Militarization

Ratings: (0)|Views: 942|Likes:
Published by Brent Cooper
The weaponization (or militarization) of space refers to a process that started with the Cold War and accelerated in the early 1980s with the Strategic Defense Initiative anti-ballistic missile program. The US Space Command, now US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), published a document in 1998 titled Vision for 2020 that declared America’s ambitions for “dominating the space dimension of military operations to protect US interests and investment. Integrating Space Forces into warfighting capabilities across the full spectrum of conflict [sic].” What can explain the US’ exponential obsession with putting weapons in space after the Cold War ended?
