"The fun thing is it never left the ground," Schiller said of the Musudan. "... Imagine Lockheed building a fighter jet and it never flew!"

Heh heh.

Heh. Remember back in the first half of the last century, when NK was where all the industry and economic development was, and SK was the economically and technologically backwards rump of the peninsula?

...yeah.

At least iran has a flying/working model.....

Perhaps Iran could offer their PS services.

Think they left some off the quote.  He was more referring to them building a plane, never flying it once, and then putting it into mass production.

Soviet subsidies will do that--temporarily.

I'm not sure what caused what (positive feedback loop?) but South Korea became less oppressive as it became more prosperous.  I do feel bad for all the Koreans who were hoodwinked into moving their families back to the north from Japan during that time.
 
2013-08-15 12:24:38 PM
Yeah, RIGHT. North Korea did that shiz on purpose, knowing this story would eventually arise, just to further their image as a non-threat to America. Meanwhile, the container ships are being readied. They won't fool me again. I ain't leaving my complex of buried schoolbusses.

Ha.  Doing a GIS for "fake missiles" brings up a whole lot of Best Korea pics.
 
2013-08-15 12:28:03 PM
what's so hard? I was successfully launching rockets in grade school
/3 or 4 of those "D" motors I think I could have hit "best Korea"
 
2013-08-15 12:28:05 PM
Most?

Good enough.

Even the US and USSR had plenty of decoy nukes, planes, tanks, etc. As long as you have one deliverable nuke, the more the merrier is the rule for decoys.
 
2013-08-15 12:29:28 PM
Here's a picture of one of their operational rockets.

You can just make out one of their scientists or workers doing repairs to the fuselage.

I've just been reading about Operation Fortitude in Stephen Ambrose's "D-Day", so I'm getting a kick out of this. I've often wondered whether some of the small "nuclear states" might be faking most of it anyway.

It's cute how you still think Best Korea is a threat.
 
2013-08-15 12:31:13 PM
The question has never really been "are most of them fake"? Of course they're fake, at least most of them. Especially when you don't have a lot, it's only smart to have some decoys.

The question we should be asking is, "are any of them real?"
 
2013-08-15 12:32:39 PM
So what you're saying is we need a massive military build up to protect us from this threat?
 
2013-08-15 12:33:24 PM
Well, they can still rain hellfire down on Worst Korea and Japan with their Iranian-built stealth fighters.

See, it just makes them more dangerous.  What we should do is start making fake space ships with laser cannons.  Our enemies will never know if they're fake or not which means we'll be more powerful then they are.

It's real to me, dammit!

Seriously, Best Korea's real threat is their artillery pieces within range of Seoul. If they can no longer support their stockpile of gunpowder due to, I dunno, that gunpowder tastes better than tree bark, then we can cease worrying about the kleptos of Pyongyang/

Parading dummy training missiles through the streets doesn't necessarily mean they don't have real missiles somewhere.

The real missiles have probably already been eaten, though.

No.   We have Japan on our side.

Now is the time for the leaders of the free world to get together on national television and openly mock Kim Jong Hefty.  Call him out.  Challenge him to a dare.

Give him a 36-hour "first strike" window during which there will be no retaliation. The one stipulation is, if he doesn't launch now, he can never mention the missiles again.

Go.

That's fine, the missile defense systems are fakes too:

The Poles have not been told that the battery will rotate without actual missiles - ie not only will the rotation not be operational in the initial phase, but it will also not be operational, and certainly interoperable, at any point in our current plans. This will be a question of basic definitions for the Poles: is it a Patriot battery if it doesn't have live missiles?
"The Poles think the Patriots will become not only operable, but interoperable, over time - thus enhancing Poland's air defence."

I was thinking their real missiles are probably set up at a place they can be launched at, these portable missiles I think are most likely fakes.

Actually, while they could kill tens of thousands of people if they wanted to, NK's artillery threat is often overblown. And this assessment assumes those tubes are actually in good working order, which given the state of NK maintenance is questionable.

Why hasn't anyone in the tea party suggested that the US should tax China's on the costs of the South Korean defense?
