I have always maintained that it is fundamentally impossible to do the deed, and therefore the choice becomes one of pretending to do the deed or admitting that one cannot do the deed.I don't want to get into a slanging match which no-one can win but there are two other possibilities. In the latter half of the 20th century, the USA was the pre-eminent nation on Earth, certainly this was so in engineering and science. They could simply have decided to do what you would have recommended and not try, thus avoiding the need to pretend to do the deed and avoid dieing trying to do the deed; or you could simply be wrong.
