Oztemprom: So, what is this satellite actually for?Does it go beep like a Sputnik? Is it some sort of CommSat?I mean, even if it is truly only a cover story for ballistics testing, which I tend to believe, there has to be some theoretical purpose for the thing.
NutWrench: HempHead: jehovahs witness protection: Fooling the obama administration isn't very difficult.Fooling the CIA isn't very difficult evidently either.I suspect there's been a lot of brain drain in the intelligence community after all the undeserved shiat they got after 9/11. When the administration ignores your advice completely, creates their own agency to create an excuse for a war (Office of Special Plans) and then blames YOU for the fark-ups afterwards, there's not much you can do. You can't defend yourselves publicly without violating your secrecy oaths, so, a lot of people say, "fark this" and leave for greener pastures in the private sector.
durbnpoisn: I think I missed something in TFA. Is this rocket some kind of show that they can launch things into orbit, or is it a threat showing that they coul possibly put a warhead on that thing?If it's the warhead thing, that's kind of scary. And I still don't understand why North Korea is trying to warn the world not to atack them. Does anyone actually have any plans for that? As far as I know, they are larely ignored.
Ivo Shandor: Article: "Earlier this week, South Korean defense officials warned that the latest North Korean missile had the capability to travel more than 6,000 miles, meaning this type of rocket could strike the United States."That's a bit of an understatement. A rocket that can put a satellite into a polar orbit has the capability to reach any point on the planet.
Kuroshin: I soooooooo cannot wait for the junta to fail at keeping the citizenry in the dark. For me, that'll be the most delicious fall of a dictatorship I could ever see.
special20: Clemkadidlefark: NORTHCOMM - "Mr. President, passenger jets will be used as weapons."Bush - "I don't believe it."NORAD - "Mr. President, we have evidence there is a plot to attack the US."Bush - "I don't believe it."Boom, flash, zoom, WTC fallsBush - "How did this happen? Why didn't anyone tell me?"FTFY, asshat.
Clemkadidlefark: Yes indeed. I did in fact kick your ass so hard you were wearing it as a hat
