How exactly would a nation that can't even put a man in LEO enforce said treaty?

Okay, so if we pretend this whole thing is a valid concern in any way, several countries could probably put people on the Lunar surface, but you don't have to be on the Moon to enforce the treaty, as long as the country trying to weaponize it is still on Earth.
And if nothing else worked, lots of countries could launch conventional weapons at any military installation anyone tried to build out there. Keep in mind that it would be extremely difficult to keep construction secret and nearly impossible to defend the site, so everybody would have ample time to prepare a reponse.

Infernalist: I'm amazed you can type up a response without accidentally choking to death on your mouse.

Pure genius and gold all wrapped up in one (a chocolate "Pirate Coin"..?  No.  Oh, so much better..)..

All you need to do is dust off all that space powder from the old laser dish.
