What if it has nothing to do with ‘discovering’ water on the moon? After all, we’ve known that for years. What if it’s a test to see if we can actually hit the moon from earth? If so, then by proxy, we can also hit any point on the earth from the moon. Thus, that may be the reason for the sudden interest of so many countries in the moon right now. Whoever occupies/controls the moon, also controls the earth which means that we might all be potential targets some day depending on whoever is in charge of any rockets placed on the moon. Moon occupancy does sound neat, but it can also have dire consequences depending upon any agenda the occupants may have. If only humans weren’t so power and control-hungry. *sigh* You KNOW that someone wants to occupy and claim the moon for themselves/their country no matter what they say. Look at how countries currently fight over a little strip of land in the Middle East. It's also entirely possible that we've done this already, and this is just the first time that the public is being made aware of it. I could see this being a tactic to sow a seed of fear in the public's mind that control of the earth from the moon is possible. I know. I know. I've been reading ATS threads too long.
