Moon Base Americana

There are news reports of NASA being directed to plan on the creation of a Moon base as a stepping stone to putting men on Mars.

Of course the cynic in me says this is prompted by the ChiComm's expressing their goal is the moon in the manned space program.

You wouldn't want any potential enemy to get the high ground where the gravity well would make raining death, whether that be kinetic weapons or thermonuclear (at those velocities a warhead would be superfluous), on the rest of the Earth very easy.
