Out of the Blue

It was 40 years ago today that Apollo 11 took off on its voyage to the moon, within the decade time-frame promised by President Kennedy, an accomplishment that may well be used forever to humiliate lesser achievements that took more time. Anyway, I find this a fascinating topic, and am looking forward to some of the online and televised retrospectives on this.

Plans like that are hardly new. The DOJ is always concocting hypothetical plans; invasion plans, defense plans, black ops plans, pretty much anything you can think of, "just in case". We even have plans for invading staunch allies.

In other words, just because the documentation for such a plan exists, does not mean that anyone ever took the plan seriously, or ever would have followed through with it.

Just wait and see the kind of stuff from the early 90's to the present day that starts popping up 40 years from now. I'm sure most of it will put this Cuba plan to shame.
