Its my opinion that a moon base would need a steady stream of supply. This involves multiple large rocket launches that would have been noticed by many people.
The reason there is no interest in the moon is because there is no reason to go back, at this time. Considering the expense of setting up a long term operation it isn't practical unless the military industrial complex sees a reason for a base. The base would need to provide an enhancement to the military infrastructure. Science comes second.

Under what jurisdiction would it be under if we built a testing facility on the moon?
Doesn't it make sense to test energy devices, and other biological testing and terrforming on the moon already?
I have this funny feeling like Apollo just went dark and we've been there for decades already. I'm pretty sure something along those lines was already happening and thats why Bush sent that rocket.
Do you have any feelings about this topic, if so please share.
There is a requirement for a manned military outpost on the moon. The lunar outpost is required to develop and protect potential United States interests on the moon; to develop techniques in moon-based surveillance of the earth and space, in communications relay, and in operations on the surface of the moon; to serve as a base for exploration of the moon, for further exploration into space and for military operations on the moon if required; and to support scientific investigations on the moon. “….The establishment of the outpost should be a special project having authority and priority similar to the Manhattan Project in World War II”
