I'm sure the TV really appreciates their effort.

FrancoFile: buckler: Isn't there an international treaty preventing any country from claiming any territory on the Moon?

Like the Chinese care about that?

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

It's outrageous that they would make this anouncement of their hostile intentions just two days before the anniversary of their attack on Pearl Harbor.

Talk about a tin ear.

One expert told the newspaper that the Earth's natural satellite could be turned into a giant weapon, which could be used as a military base where missiles could be directed at targets on Earth...

Infernalist: stratagos: threadjackistan: JesseL: Why in the world would you want to launch missiles from the moon instead of your own orbital platform?

Flight time from the moon to Earth is going to be pretty long - the Apollo missions took at least about three days. You could reduce that but not by a huge amount.

You'll be working against a gravity well.

Any launch is going to be easy to detect.

The value of putting a missle base on the moon would be in second or "revenge" strike capabilities. Basically so your opponent couldnt hope to launch a surprise attack and destroy your ability to retaliate.

Subs are cheaper, by several orders of magnitude

This.  And far more likely to hit what they're aiming at.

Would you all kindly STFU
How are we gonna get a good old-fashioned 'Space Race' going again with that kinda attitude?!

Does China want to turn the moon into a DEATH STAR?

Once again, the adage holds true.  If a headline ends in a question mark, the answer is "no."
