My belief is they would not have done this for real , so many things that could go wrong , thousands of different items needed to perform flawlessly, if one link in the chain broke , disaster ...with the whole world watching , live.

They could not take that risk , they were in a (fake) cold war with Russia , a public failure of rocket technology, the same technology behind ICBM's could give the Russians the idea they had the upper hand and then they deliver a first strike.
This is what they told the astronauts "this is about America's national security".

It's understood many of the early Russian space missions were faked , or done with doubles , just so they would not lose face if things went wrong.(source Alex Jones from talks with russian insiders)
