    I would just love to see China level his SH*T into the ground.

    What made me laugh was the link to the "Streaker stops play; Full coverage of Wimbledon" - 'story'. :rolleyes:

    They want to get themselves blown up, don't they?

    Now it appears 4 missiles fired CNN reports, guess we need to change the title of this thread.

    Now Faux is reporting a 4th and supposedly the 3rd was the ICBM, but it
    broke apart or was shot down mid air.

    Apparently this is a case of space shuttle envy.

    Unconfirmed reports say that Kim strapped some poor souls
    to each one attempting North Korea's first manned space flight.:D


    Watch the new Kim video

    I would not be suprised in the least if we shot the missle down. Perfect test situation for us to see if we could do it. The next few days are going to be interesting especailly because none of the missiles fired were the one that we had seen on the launch pad for weeks.

    We didn't shoot it down. The missile flew for only 42 seconds. Inept Korean technology.

    When you consider the conditions they're working under, it's a bloody miracle they could even get the thing off the ground.

    Why would shooting down a missile on a test-firing be funny? Bloody irresponsible maybe, but "funny"?

    I'd have expected a better level of success, given the amount of technical knowledge that's publicly available.

    I remember our bad old days when we blew up rocket after rocket on the launch pads. We were about to rename them "Civil Service": Ya can't fire 'em, ya can't get get 'em to work.

    Seems most Missiles were pointed towards Japan, I dont see this as helping N.Korea nor the ones who back them as China or Russia.

    Well maybe leveling Kim's bases to the ground was going a bit too far.

    How about a relentless counter attack of water balloons and freedom fries?

    Why would that not be funny. They are flexing their muscles and saying, "we will bring you down" and boom.

    We shoot their little missile out of the sky. Sorry, but that would be funny as hell. I guess that is the redneck in my though ;)
