I'll see you on the Darkside of the Moon (Now Photographed!)

This is really cool they now have pictures of the Dark Side of the Moon.

Behold the Dark Side of the Moon!

You can read about the technology used to be able to view this
HERE and I was wondering if Bombing the Dark Side of the Moon would have any Dire Weather consequences so I did a little search. I came across an interesting perspective ...

"Twenty years before a powerful syndicate of military-industrial criminals conspired to plant a US flag on the Moon, a similar clique of madmen plotted to fire a nuclear warhead-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile at the lunar face. Code-named “Project A119,” this plan devised by Cold War-era Air Force and weapons manufacturers called for a massive nuclear explosion that would be clearly visible from anywhere on Earth. Researchers struggled in vain to find any pretext, any shred of legitimate scientific value, to glean from this sickening display of militarist impunity.

But the sole objective of Project A119 was to terrorize into submission every human on the planet (especially those who had never heard of Hiroshima or Nagasaki) with a demonstration of how the US ruling class was technologically adept and morally bankrupt enough to commit such an unimaginable poetic atrocity. [The scheme was fronted by Dr Leonard Reiffel at the Pentagon-backed Armour Foundation. The latr Carl Sagan did mathematical modeling for the project, which was eventually abandoned. AC/JSC.]"

Of course, there is much more behind this attack than casual scientific curiosity on whether or not there is water on the Moon. First of all, since the long-range accuracy of intercontinental ballistic missiles has never been proven to work, the LCROSS suicide mission serves as a live-fire test exercise for US war strategists with an interest in the precision of orbiting satellite weapons—in other words, the southern hemisphere of the Moon will be turned into a firing range, making this mission one giant leap for the global reach of space warfare. Secondly, LCROSS has been promoted as “the vanguard” for the US military-industrial-entertainment complex’s return to the Moon—according to NASA, finding water is a necessary first step for “building a long-term and sustainable human presence” there.

Then the author goes off on a rant about talking to the moon, etc. that would be fitting for Twilight (Pink Floyd) you can read the rest here.

I did however come across this piece from the guardian that speaks of the project described before the Moon Bat Rant you can read about it here.

I just thought it was interesting and I guess all I can do is hope it does not have any dire unintended weather consequenes. I also came across this site so you can view the Bombing of the Moon online if you like. Starts at 6:15AM
