I can just imagine the timeline

2019 - Chinese mission lands on the Dark Side of the Moon - High-fives all round etc

2020 - China launches 3 more missions to establish small colony for "scientific research"

2022 - China announces scientific discovery of vast precious metal mineral seams and claims squatters rights to Dark Side of the Moon. International outcry and condemnation follows. China ignores the problem and sets up first Lunar mines.

2023 - US opens first Lunar McDonalds
