US Weaponization Planning and Implications for Canada

US military planning for space dominance as an aspect of its wider plans for global military dominance have been underway since the 1990s. The Bush administration, while not initiating such planning, has expanded it and built upon it by embracing the military vision in the context of a broader concept of American grand strategy in the post-Cold War world. Canada consistently and clearly opposes the weaponization of space. But achieving this end will require not simply making the case against weaponization on practical grounds, but also confronting the underlying vision of domination now driving US strategic and political policy-making.
