The US cannot own the moon since the claim for them to have landed there has not been independently verified by an independent authority.

The USA cannot own the moon since they have not lodged and defended a claim of sovereignty.

The USA cannot own the moon because there is a UN treaty which prohibits it. This has not been ratified but it does suggest that the UN would not accept an attempt to reverse the original standpoint.

A historic claim is merely part of a claim of sovereignty. If that was all there was to it then we would be assigning most of the Americas to the original inhabitants, Australia to the Australian aboriginals and New Zealand to the Maoris etc, etc

China's claim for Tibet has been established, recognised and defended and even the Dalai Lama claims he isn't seeking independence.

I think you pulled that Chinese claim to Tibet out of some magic bag, Fatdragon. No one recognises ...

When the yankee economy collapses NO ONE will recognize !5rae1's claim to be a legit nation. Mark my word!
