    Hoping like hell that thing doesn't hit land. Otherwise it was nice knowing you all.

    Just came out on the news that the little mania has fired yet another missile over the islands of Japan. Lots of panic resulting. Wondering why there was no anti-missile response to this? It would seem to be the logical action, if you have the time. Can't wait to see what old fire and fury has to say on his Twit feed.

    Agreed, it's a scary situation.

    We're still waiting for a response from them after DPRK was bold enough to cross their red line, despite their celebrating Trump's "genius" and testicular fortitude from "making Little Kim blink."

    Still hearing nothing but crickets on that.

    I say we just immediately shoot down all of his missiles once it hits international waters. Why give them the luxury of seeing how far their ICMBs go?

    Has any missile been fired towards Guam? Trump was talking specifically about Guam.

    IMO, this is a propoganda exercise because other countries see what many of our citizen's don't. This is muscle flexing while they have time. They have always done this with every President (they truly don't care about party or who is in office), but they see cracks in the armor now, if only from a propagandist standpoint.

    This is just a decade long failure of International politics.

    I'd only do that if I were 100% certain that I could shoot down every single thing they fired. Otherwise why give them the opportunity to gauge how best to get past the anti-missile defences?

    Works both ways. Look what happened with the Iron Dome and the west bank in Israel. Once ID batteries where active and started to defeat katyusha and grad rockets the Palestinians eventually stopped and changed tactics.

    My bad, I think it was Gaza, not WB, since the west bank is still occupied by IDF.

    has a silver lining (except for the mushroom shaped ones… which have a lining of Iridium and Strontium 90)

    I totally agree. This probably goes back more than ten years, probably at least with Clinton, but I feel they are emboldened by Trump. What used to be a yearly-fiasco is turning monthly, bi-weekly.

    The little fat man is just testing Trump, as he's the new POTUS. Once he knows Trump wont back down I anticipate the saber rattling will slow down.

    Gee, I feel better already. Trump makes Bill "The Waffle That Walked Like a Man" Clinton look like the Rock of Gibralter. :rolleyes:
