USA Bombs the Moon

armageddon

Have we really ran out of Middle Eastern sand traps to bomb?  How many bombs do we build a year that we have to now start randomly bombing the moon?  Tonight we are preparing to shoot a rocket into the moon to explode a bomb in order to crash the surface to see if we can find ice.  The Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) project is going to cost us 79 million.   Could we not just save a few bucks and drop some bottle rockets in Sarah Palin’s front yard?  I am guessing that Obama is not going Letterman on an intern or discovered oil on the moon.  There is no need to shoot off any bombs.  This is sounding more and more like a bad Bruce Willis flick.  Are we sure that the giant hunk of rock that I can see from my backyard is going to stay up there?  This is sounding more like an idea from an Oklahoma 4th of July drunkfest than a NASA experiment.  Finally, did anybody see Armageddon with a straight face.  Ben Affleck, Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Willis and Owen Wilson all save the world?  Good job Hollywood.
