Three Chinese astronauts walked in space for the first time in Chinese history.  Undoubtedly, one day the Chinese will try to send someone to the moon.  Now would be a good time to remind the Chinese that the United States planted the American flag on lunar soil in 1969.  As such, the moon is American territory, and is an integral part of the sovereign American nation.  Please do not try to meddle in domestic American politics by sending someone to the moon and interfering in our internal affairs.  Thank you.
 
Wow, I think I was just overwhelmed by a wave of nationalist sentiment.  Please forgive the momentary lapse in reason.

    I totally agree with you. Chinese are always published articles like they are going land on the moon in 15 years, 20 years or so. I think it is time to remind them it is not their territory and shatter their illusion.
