We have spent the last several decades exporting jobs and playing worlds police force, which has destroyed this country.

China has simply taken advantage of our governments greed and stupidity, and profited from the short sighted ignorance of Americans.

Yawn. Even if China lands humans on the moon by the end of this decade, it's 50 years after the fact.

The moon is old hat. Try Mars.

Are you so sure? Many people believe that the "moon landings" were actually staged in the top-secret Area 51. Maybe future Chinese/Indian moon missions will be able to determine the truth...
