I have no idea if this actually happened or not, but considering the tension during the cold war, it certainly seems entirely possible that a hoax was pulled off. We may have been up hours/days/weeks later than originally planned, and I think it is ridiculous to believe that we have never been to the Moon. As shown in this thread, there is far too much evidence to the contrary.
There is certainly some real funny 'faked landing' clips getting around the net.
Warned of??? You think Aliens may be territorial? Don't come near my Moon? What is this theory?
Not that it really matters anyways. We have been, not much to see, built a dud spacecraft we are stuck with for a few decades because it blew the budgets horrendously, and nobody will give that sort of trust again easily. Makes sense why we did not go back, not like it is shrouded in Jungles, so nothing to explore, it has no atmosphere, so the idea of life ever existing there as we know it is unlikely. What could we gain, more resources to plunder maybe, but we still have some of those left here on earth........
