NASA’s “mission” – Muslim self esteem. Huh? WTF?
With 2 launches left in the Space Shuttle program and manned missions to either the Moon or Mars off the table, NASA needed a new mission for future space development. According to this story (from FOXNews), our dear comrade leader has tasked NASA director Charles Bolden with a three part mission. The details prove, once again, that the regime is full of f**king space aliens.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his “foremost” mission as the head of America’s space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.
Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA’s orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.
“When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering,” Bolden said in the interview.
W-T-F??? Are you kidding me? “Help them feel good about their historic contribution to science?” OK, so the Egyptians were good enough at math, engineering, and architecture to build the pyramids (unless you believe the premise of the movie, Stargate), but what scientific advances have come from the Middle East since then? Especially since the advent of Islam (c. 610 AD)? The Egyptian dynasties expired thousands of years prior to Islam so what particular scientific advances came from Muslim nations?
According to Bolden:
“It is a matter of trying to reach out and get the best of all worlds, if you will, and there is much to be gained by drawing in the contributions that are possible from the Muslim (nations),” he said. He held up the International Space Station as a model, praising the contributions there from the Russians and the Chinese.
However, Bolden denied the suggestion that he was on a diplomatic mission — in a distinctly non-diplomatic role.
“Not at all. It’s not a diplomatic anything,” he said.
He praised the Russians and the Chinese – both are anti-Muslim. The only things the Muslims seem to excel in are terrorist activities. I suppose if we want to develop interstellar car bombs and self-detonating astronauts we could draw on their “expertise” in these areas. SHEEESH!
This post (from Power Line) has the video of the Al Jazeera interview if you can stand it. Here’s the kicker:
This is more evidence, if any were needed, of Obama’s lack of interest in American achievement or, indeed, American greatness. He seems to believe we’ve achieved enough (or perhaps too much) and that the trick now is to make nations that have achieved little for centuries feel like we couldn’t have done it without them (in the video, Bolden goes on to talk about how much NASA owes the Russians and the Japanese).
Behind the bravado of the Muslim world there may well lie an inferiority complex. If so, Obama is a fool if he believes we can help Muslims overcome that complex by having the head of the agency that symbolizes our technical superiority make patronizing statements about ancient Muslim contributions to science.
Indeed. What happened to space exploration?
