Today marks the 40th anniversary of the landing of the United States manned spacecraft "Eagle" on the surface of the moon, and the subsequent "moon walk" that was taken by Commander Neil Armstrong, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr.

Almost everyone who watched this event live on television, realized that they were watching a paramount moment in human history. A great deal of care was given at the time to make the mission appear inclusive. Terms like, " One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind " and " We came in peace for all mankind," were used to this end.

Now, on the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11, it is time to cut the crap and remember the event for what it really was, a great and independent American achievement! It was one small step for an American and America came in peace for all mankind!

As of today, only 27 men have ever left earth's orbit and ventured out into space, and of these, only 12 have walked on the moon. All of them Americans!

The Apollo project showed the entire world America's ability to take on a challenge, and doing it in our own individual manner, whip its ass!

That was really a great moment in our history. I wonder if America is even up to something like this any more?
