A move that will not be viewed very friendly especially by the Chinese...Obama is considering a plan that would link the Pentagon with NASA. It would open up more funds for NASA. However, the agency will begin to recieve a lot of influence from the military.

Whats wrong with that? Building Military Grade weapons with Nasa scientists would be some of the most sophisticated pieces of warfare in the world.

As long as the military maintains their distance then NASA will be a great addition to the DoD.

Russia doesnt have the money for a space race. Unless oil goes back up in price, they are hurting.

China is a problem though...

And Russia and China are not going to ally on this. Russia is not going to want China to get that strong. For centuries the Chinese and Russians have fought about territory in Siberia. If China gets too much stronger than Russia, then 20-30-40 years from now, the Chinese may lay claim to something the Russians can't defend. Especially since the Russian population (150 million) is shrinking and the Chinese population (1.3 billion) is growing astronomically.
