Ted Cruz: We Need a Space Force to Defend Against Space Pirates

I’m trying not to post as much about politics here but some things are just too stupid to not post:

“Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space,” he said during his opening statements. Since “the ancient Greeks first put to sea,” Cruz argued, we’ve recognized the “necessity to protect waterborne traffic and commerce from bad actors.”

And now, he says, it’s time for the Space Force to do the same in space.
