They do have Aegis ships with SM3's in addition to the lower range Patriots.

Neither of which are particularly useful against an ICBM.


The Musudan is not an ICBM.

China has stood by the Kim family for, well generations. You'd think K3 would give China some cred, at least out of some kind of dynastic obligation.

And yet here he is, showing them the Big Peen.

The lit finger in the sky is for you, Chinese friends.

Argh. CNN, please do not play repeats of news programs that lead off with "Breaking News" involving a hostage situation that resolved several hours ago. Lame.

It would be an IRBM or a Scud (or some type of cruise missile) not an ICBM if it were targeted at Japan. The SM3 in conjunction with the Aegis RADAR  is supposed to be able to have a decent chance of hitting a rocket in it's launch\boost phase if it passes over Japan.

I could certainly do with some kimchi.

I'm pretty adventurous with food, love most Asian dishes, but I had kimchi about a decade ago and hated it. Worth revisiting even if I hate cabbage?

If you hate cabbage, it's extremely doubtful you'll learn to love kimchi.

Some friends have told me otherwise, but I don't believe them. As a kid I'd practically get nauseous every time my mom cooked sauerkraut. Hate the stuff.

neongoats: Canton: doglover: Canton: I've never had kimchi,

It's good. Nothing like sour kraut. Imagine thick cut cole slaw cabbage with hot sauce instead of mayonaise as the base of the sauce. It's cold, a little spicy, and crunchy.

By itself it's kind of shiat. But when you're eating REALLY spicy foods? Oh man it's outta this world. It cools ya right down.

Okay, that does sound good. I shall go to bed dreaming of cabbage rather than global thermonuclear war. Thanks for that.

/Has read  Alas, Babylon a few too many times...

Think of barbecued armadillo caught by your trusty dachshund to go with your post-nuclear kimchi.


My dachshund is about as trustworthy as a broke crackhead.

I'll be surprised if they can get it in boost phase, or at all, really. But, then, stranger things have happened.

To hit Japan you don't exactly need a Minuteman.

The missile they are supposedly planning on testing is not a cruise missile.


On Oct 22 2012 NK shot a satellite in to the Pacific that went directly over Okinawa. Japan said any other future launches would be shot down no matter a test or not. NK is planning to launch a missile anytime over Japan and in to the pacific. Japan has access to Aegis systems and said they will shoot it down.

yoursource4sports.files.wordpress.com

If I can't Palin, I can't Palin. It is as simple as that. It ain't about that at all. It's easy to sum it up if you're just talking about Palin. We're sitting here, and I'm supposed to be the franchise player, and we're talking about Palin. I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about Palin, not a North Korea, not a North Korea, not a North Korea, but we're talking about Palin. Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game like it's my last, but we're talking about Palin, man. How silly is that?

This whole situation is something completely new to me, and I think it's given me a better understanding about when my parents talk about learning duck and cover drills in school and dealing with potential imminent annihilation on a constant basis. Of course, the current situation is probably only a shadow of what things were in the past, but the idea that the world could be plunged into nuclear war because of the actions of a few backwards fanatics in some small country around the world is something I've never experience (having been born right at the end of the Cold War).

I honestly don't think this is anything more than an exercise in sabre-rattling, but the fact that we honestly could jeopardize everything we've worked, and fought and strived for since the beginning over some strip of farking land on some speck of dust rock in some cosmic backwater is just so insanely stupid.

You can't imagine a more terrifying thing on TV for a kid. They actually had counselors come to the school the next day and spend time with each class discussing our feelings and fears.

You know, that would actually make for a good Doctor Who episode. The reason why North Korea looks like its been in a time warp IS because its been in an actual time warp. Kim Jong-Un is actually a Dalek in disguise, which explains why he's so fat. The Doctor fixes everything, and North Korea goes back to 1970. However, everyone wakes up to there being no North Korea, yet still remembers it, so at some point, North Korea ceased to exist between 1970 and now. Wibbly wobbly timey wimey season finale stuff ensues.

It's very much a shadow of the threat, but we all grew up with the idea that if one "red" nuclear-armed country gets into a shooting war, then we all do. I think that old line of thought and the fear that if the balloon goes up everybody will just start shooting is what is keeping me up tonight, even though it's extremely unlikely. It's interesting conversing with people who have no memory of the Cold War - you cannot believe the impact that had on our culture.
