Agence-France Press: Moon Hoax?

This editor needs to go back and review this article again.
Russia plans to send a manned mission to the Moon by 2025 and wants to build a permanent base there shortly after, the head of Russian space agency Roskosmos said Friday.

"According to our estimates we will be ready for a manned flight to the Moon in 2025," Anatoly Perminov told reporters. An "inhabited station" could be built there between 2027 and 2032, he said.
The only moon landing in history is NASA's Apollo expedition in 1968.

Hamas: Navy without ships

Gaza controlling (terrorist) government Hamas is starting a Navy:

“The requirements to join are that you have to be a good soldier, be fit, and know how to swim,” said the coastal patrol’s only confirmed member and commander, Jamil al-Dahashan, a veteran of the armed wing of Hamas.

Apparently they don't need boats because they're aiming to recruit good swimmers!

The new force is expected to take to the waves — or at least the beaches — in a couple of weeks, where it will battle against prostitution and drug abuse. Eventually, when it has a boat, the navy will venture out to sea

Didn't know there was that much prostitution going on on Gaza beaches - scandalous.

Russians to claim the bottom of the arctic

Russia is trying to claim the arctic by planting a flag at the bottom of the arctic at the north pole.

Maybe they should learn from people who spend a bit more time up there than just dropping a flag on the bottom.
