Arrow International Treaty Bans Military Use of Outer Space

International Treaty Bans Military Use of Outer Space
BY: Arthur H. Westing, Ph.D - 7-22-18

In his otherwise excellent summary of our nation’s potential military approaches to space (“Space Force! Space Force!,” op-ed, June 25), Taylor Dinerman, although noting that international law provides for peaceful uses of that realm, fails to mention that international law (via Article IV of the 1967 outer space treaty) additionally forbids the use of the moon and other celestial bodies for any military uses whatsoever.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
