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.

The current U.S. Administration plans to deploy space-based weapons. One main purpose is to dominate and control space, as the actor who dominates and controls space, dominates and control all on earth. Space-based weapons are dangerous, destabilizing, too costly, and unnecessary, as they would not protect anyone or anything…and there is a better choice. Fortunately, a U.N. Space Preservation Treaty is ready to be signed into law. This is the one moment in time when space-based weapons can be banned…before deployment under the guise of “research” or “tests” of missile defense, and/or before the accelerated momentum of funding, vested interests and technology gets put into place that would make this impossible to stop. Plans are in motion to convene a U.N. Space Preservation Treaty Conference. The U.N. Space Preservation Treaty to ban all space-based weapons will: *Prohibit the research and development (R&D), testing, manufacturing, production and deployment of space-based weapons and systems, and the use of weapons to destroy or damage objects in space that are in orbit (i.e. satellites). This prohibits the introduction of weapons in space and the escalation of war on earth from space. *Permit space exploration, R&D, testing, manufacturing, production and deployment of civil commercial and defense activities (including communication, navigation, surveillance, reconnaissance, early warning or remote sensing) that is not related to space-based weapons or systems. *Transform the war industry into a peaceful, sustainable space industry by removing the mandate to weaponize space. *Stimulate a peacetime economy (a new economic stimulus package) with a new marketplace of more jobs and training programs, and more profits and contracts than during any hot or cold wartime, based on the conscious R&D of clean and safe Space Age technology, products and services that will be applied directly to solving urgent problems of human needs, alternative energy, and the environment - thus transforming the war-based economy and industry into a Space Age economy and industry. *Build a strong national defense and a global security system based on applying civil, commercial and military/defense related Space Age technology of a non-space-based-weapons nature directed no longer to be used as "force multipliers" to aim weapons but to enhance worldwide communication and information exchanges about issues of concern to all peoples. This will bring the world’s peoples together to reap the abundance of benefits. Satellite photos will be used to preserve our interconnected environment (eg. to see where the sick waters are so we can clean them up), and to protect the people (eg. see where people have migrated so the troops and all can go to them with food, medicine, and clean water, to educate, to eliminate poverty, and to heal). *Apply a new role for the military and military spending, corporations and corporate profits to focus with intention to be in service: to protect humanity and preserve our environment in the context of a new Space Age Paradigm in which war on earth will become archaic as humans evolve safely, consciously on earth and into space. We need to provide the time and place when world leaders will sign and ratify the World Space Preservation Treaty. When the first five (5) U.N. Member nations sign and ratify this Treaty it becomes law, and an international (world) cooperative Outer Space Peacekeeping Agency will be established and equipped to monitor outer space and enforce the ban. The same equipment can be applied to verify agreements including the reduction and elimination of missiles (thus eliminating the need for “missile defense’), nuclear weapons, and other dangerous and polluting technology on our Earth.
