President Donald Trump recently unveiled the logo for the newly created Space Force, the sixth branch of the U.S. armed forces.

(FOX NEWS) – China has criticized the creation of the United States Space Force as “a serious violation of the international consensus on the peaceful use of outer space … a direct threat to outer space peace and security.”

Nothing could be further from the truth. Like Russia, China is waging a propaganda war to deny, distract and blame.

We must be clear-eyed and punctiliously truthful in response to such baseless accusations and fear-mongering.

The implication of China’s statement is that the United States, in forming the U.S. Space Force, is somehow at odds with international obligations or the beliefs and customs of the international community.

That charge deserves close inspection.
