At present, our potential adversaries understand the competitive advantage we derive from space and view our reliance on space as a critical vulnerability they can exploit.  As I have testified before, in the not too distant future, near-peer competitors will have the ability to hold every U.S. space asset in every orbital regime at risk.   To meet this challenge, we need to embrace the fact that space is a warfighting domain just like the Air, Land, Cyberspace and Maritime domains, which requires that we address our vulnerabilities and maintain our resolve to ensure the peace.
