US President Donald Trump orders creation of US Space Force as military branch

“It is not enough to have American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space,” Trump declared, calling it a matter of national security. To that end, he has directed General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to begin preparations for making the Space Force a “separate but equal” branch of the US military, alongside the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard.
    The Outer Space Treaty, to which the US has been party since 1967, bans states from testing any weapons in outer space, or establishing military bases on the Moon and other celestial bodies. It also prohibits deployment of any weapons of mass destruction in Earth’s orbit. The US has unilaterally withdrawn from treaties before, however, and Trump could just channel Emperor Palpatine and declare, “I will make it legal.”

Expert Criticizes report of HR High Commissioner against VenezuelaCaracas, Jun 23 (Prensa Latina)

    The report issued by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) on the alleged situation in Venezuela lacks credibility and objectivity, said Alfred De Zayas, independent expert of the aforementioned multilateral organism.                        
                        The professor of International Law told the local press to be concerned about the credibility of the office by not showing neutrality, or objectivity, a methodology required not only to the High Commissioner, but also to the Courts of any public body that develops an investigation.

De Zayas commented that after visiting with the DD.HH. Entity the the South American country in 2017, with the view to raise a report on the existing reality, those in charge of writing the final document omitted the references made by him.

'Both the office and a number of non-governmental organizations present on the tour, wanted me to do only one thing, to condemn the Venezuelan government as confirmation of the existence of a humanitarian crisis,' he denounced.

Also, the specialist said that his mission in relation to the trip was to know and if necessary help solve a problem of violation of human rights in Venezuela, at the same time, said he will demand to hear his opinion as a member and former secretary of the Human Rights Committee, qualified by De Zayas as favorable.

The manipulated document describes the acts of political violence unleashed by the Venezuelan opposition and its allies of the United States Government between the months of April to July 2017, where 121 people died and another 1, 958 were injured.

In a statement issued yesterday by the Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Minister, Jorge Arreaza, the Executive rejected the report's interference and described it as a gesture of disparagement of the institutionalization and the international legal framework.

He sentenced that Mr. Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, High Commissioner of Human Rights of the UN, when presenting the text confirms his complicity with the multiform aggression that is underway against Venezuela, in addition, he is silent in the face of the negative impact on the enjoyment of economic, social and cultural rights generated by the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the US President, Donald Trump, and ignores the broad UN doctrine on this subject.

Despite the permanent aggression, the foreign minister reiterated the Government's commitment to human rights in the terms established in the Venezuelan Constitution and the international treaties validated, signed and ratified by the nation.
