yeah. its old news.
but. if you noticed, NASA has been trying to drum up support for a permanent "Moon Base" this week
and of course, a story like this goes a long way
|oh, how very convenient! And who do you think is benefiting from this???|
*cough* the bush administration *cough*
when they get the green light to build said moon base, it will be just like the kennedy "..before this decade is done" speech, which, btw, was just a black-budget front for developing WMD's.LOL
(ie: history has revealed, in retrospect, that the "space race" gave us all the technology we needed for ICBM's and the inevitable "Cold War" that followed. which was exactly what both sides were after in the first place, btw. nobody was actually trying
to get to the moon (hence the popular conspiracy that says we didn't go
); the Administration at the time just wanted a way of getting funding from congress to design a specific missile to go up into orbit and then come back down and land an object the size of a volkswagon onto a pre-determined target-area: the saturn rocket was the first functional ICBM. the command module was even designed to be ~roughly the same size as a 1960's-era nuclear warhead. and the apollo program was just a way of selling it to the american people so nobody would question the fact that the US was building WMD's)
--> according to the official account of history, the US didn't HAVE
an (offical) "missile-development" program for ICBM's; they never tested intercontinental missiles by firing them over the sea of japan like North Korea did last year (and got criticized for); they didn't HAVE TO.
the appolo program WAS the program for testing/developing the intercontinental missiles that would ultimately fuel the Arms Race - and when that technology was finally developed..
..we STOPPED going to the moon! (LOL!)
and concentrated our efforts on waging the Cold War instead (coindidence?)
anyway --> now that the republicans have lost control of congress, its actually kinda necessary
for them to have a(nother) "black-budget" project that will enjoy political support AND give them a bottomless pool of funding that they can hide from congress
(so they can (continue to) implement their plans for the New World Order ™ mwahahah!)
|Really, how do you people not see this stuff? |
