Pax Americana and the Weaponization of Space

'Star Wars is no longer science fiction'. The prospect of Earth being ruled from space is no longer science-fiction. The dream of the original Dr. Strangelove, Wernher von Braun (from Nazi rocket-scientist to NASA director) has survived every US administration since WW2 and is coming to life. Today the technology exists to weaponize space, a massive American industry thrives, and nations are maneuvering for advantage.

PAX AMERICANA tackles this pivotal moment. Are war machines already orbiting Earth? Can treaties keep space weapons-free? Must the World capitulate to one super-cop on the global beat?

With startling archival footage and unprecedented access to US Air Force Space Command, this elegant, forceful documentary reveals the state of play through generals, space-policy analysts, politicians, diplomats, peace activists, and hawks.

Lies, lies and damned lies. The US Navy are a bunch of thugs that board and search ships in international waters with out any proper authority.   We are not out there insuring peace on the oceans as this film states. We are out there expanding the American empire to the advantage of the military industrial complex and the oligarchs.

 Get up to speed, space has been weaponized for a long long time. That was and is the original plan.
