Welcome to the problems of the 21st and 22nd centuries…
NASA recently issued a stark warning about China’s plans for the moon—they want to colonize it and claim it as their territory.
The head of NASA warns that China’s National Space Administration may be positioning itself to use the moon as a staging ground for their military space command.
Could this simply be a scare tactic the agency is using to secure more funding, or are their warnings justified?
We know that both our government and theirs want a space military program…
I want a space military program as well—to defend the planet from impacts, coronal mass ejections, and ‘other’ unidentified threats, but anything beyond this is pure lunacy…
Only human beings could be so stupid as to have aspirations of moon colonization in order to place weapons on it aimed at the Earth—our one and only home.
Here’s the latest buzz surrounding the issue:
China rejected a warning from the chief of NASA that the country might "take over" the moon as part of a military program.

Radar: China-Moon. ‘It’s ours now and you stay out’
* needless to say, the chief of NASA does NOT ignore the facts nor spoke 'irresponsibly about China'. NASA Administrator Bill Nelson is 100% correct that 'We must be very concerned'. https://t.co/uC4pTlg5cA

The Daily Wire reports:
“There is a new race to space – this time with China,” Nelson reportedly told the German outlet. “But Beijing’s plans go further: China is planning its own moon base – together with Russia!” the mag wrote.
“We must be very concerned that China is landing on the moon and saying: ‘It’s ours now and you stay out,’” the U.S. space agency chief reportedly said. “China’s space program is a military space program.”

According to NBC News, China is denying the allegations:
“The U.S. side has constantly constructed a smear campaign against China’s normal and reasonable outer space endeavors, and China firmly opposes such irresponsible remarks.”
China has always promoted the building of a shared future for humanity in outer space and opposed its weaponization and any arms race in space, he said.
