Moon Landing

Forty years ago today the American astronauts reached the moon and two of them walked on its surface for hours. Check the beautiful photos and videos on NASA's 40th anniversary of moon landing webpage.

To me that's America at its best and most optimistic. I look back on those days with nostalgia, and with a great feeling of sadness and regret. Barely a decade after those confident days, our world began to plunge into the New Dark Ages.

We Iranians went from a secular, modern pro-Western monarchy to... well, we all know where went. And as for America, after making it possible for the first time in history for man to set foot on the surface of the moon, it began to lose confidence in itself after the spasms of Vietnam and Watergate, and ended up where it is today when its half-Muslim president goes on an apology tour and begs forgiveness for the crimes that the US has allegedly committed. And who does he seek absolution from: some the world's vilest and most cruel tyrants.

How did we get to this point?

I hope to see the day when, after the Mullahs are the distant past, Iranian and American astronauts can walk on the moon together.

hehehe... regarding your moon walking, we have this saying in Persian: Making a wish/dreaming is a youth's habit. haha... well that's a good dream there though.

Political correctness, liberalism brought the USA to this point. The religion of the left is self-loathing-- now currently on global display courtesy of black, statist Messiah.
