REPUBLIC BROADCASTING NETWORK: Bush Space Policy & The Space Preservation Treaty-Signing WHEN: Saturday, Nov. 18, 2006 @ 10 PM CST (8 PM PST) LISTEN LIVE: http://www.rbnlive.com/listen.html GUEST: Alfred Lambremont Webre, JD, MEd www.peaceinspace.org Host: D'Anne Burley TOPIC: THE SPACE PRESERVATION TREATY-SIGNING THE PROBLEM: Bush Space Policy U.S. National Space Policy http://www.ostp.gov/html/US%20National%20Space%20Policy.pdf Space: America's New War Zone By Andrew Buncombe in Washington Published: 19 October 2006 The Independent (UK) “The Bush administration has staked an aggressive new claim to dominate space - rejecting any new treaties that seek to limit the United States' extraterrestrial activities and warning that it will oppose any nations that try to get in its way. “A new policy recently signed by President George Bush, asserts that his country has the right to conduct whatever research, development and "other activities" in space that it deems necessary for its own national interests. “The new policy further warns that the US will take those actions necessary to protect its space capabilities and deny, if necessary, adversaries the use of space capabilities hostile to those interests. The document adds: ‘Space activities have improved life in the United States and around the world, enhancing security, protecting lives and the environment, speeding information flow serving as an engine for economic growth and revolutionizing the way people view their world and the cosmos.’ "’Freedom of action in space is as important to the United States as air power and sea power.’ “In some respects the policy represents the space equivalent of the "Bush Doctrine" national security policy initially outlined by Mr. Bush in a speech at West Point military academy in June 2002. At that event - and later more formally codified – Mr. Bush said the new US policy would place more emphasis on military pre-emption and unilateral actions….” From, Space: America's New War Zone, op. cit. THE SOLUTION: Space Preservation Treaty-Signing The outcome of the Space Preservation Treaty-Signing is a functioning ban of space-based weapons and warfare in space, operating through an independent Outer Space Peacekeeping Agency that will be formed by the leaders and Nations who sign and ratify the Space Preservation Treaty. The Space Preservation Treaty-Signing urgently enrolls U.N. Member Nations to individually sign and ratify the Space Preservation Treaty, to ban ALL space-based weapons. The Treaty-Signing creates a growing enclave of U.N. Member Nations, national communities, and legal jurisdictions which have signed and ratified the Space Preservation Treaty, and ban ALL space-based weapons, thus outlawing warfare in space and from space under international law and United Nations Charter and rules. The Space Preservation Treaty-Signing results in a caucus of U.N. Member Nations which have individually or in small groups signed and ratified the Space Preservation Treaty in cumulative numbers which approximate the latest formal of the U.N. General Assembly vote of 166 – 1 (2 abstentions) in favor of preventing the weaponization of space.
