    It's a Russian base for storing nuclear warheads. They're going to attack from within!

    what a random question.

    because Idaho is a sh.thole boring state so they need to copy other names to sound more interesting 

    LOL

    Because if they named it Larry, that would sound stupid.

    Back in the days of the Strategic Air Command, it was where the bombers carrying the nuclear bombs were ordered to go to. If they didn't receive a second command to stand down, then that order stood and they flew to the other Moscow.

    There's much dispute over the origin of the name but many cities in Idaho are named after the local Indian tribes. Its suspected that it was derived from the Masco tribe while other believe there were Russian immigrants.  Masco may have been phonetically interpreted as Moscow

    Because your mom named the town after you.

    For the same reason there is a city in Texas called Paris and a city in Illinois called Vienna. Back in the day, someone decided to borrow the name.
