Yeah, saw it on the news.

Speculation is that one of them was a test firing of a train-mounted Iskender knockoff.

For some reason, the notion of using a train to fire these things just seems so quaintly anachronistic.

I'm sure the North Koreans are proud their homeland has once again been defended against the dread god Neptune's open aggression as they choke down more grass and mud stew.

Young bamboo shoots are edible, so most of those would've probably been dug-up by mid-spring.

Oh, I wasn't doubting it was real just commenting on general appearance with a joke. Like if North Korea had gone on Gilligan's Island.

You know...  It's stupid shiat like that that makes me think that maybe out politicians shouldn't speak in public again until after the election.

Both Biden and her made a couple of inexcusable, no excuse errors this past week.  Both of which were easily avoidable by either double checking the speech, or better yet, not saying ANYTHING at all.

These two are going to lose us the House, you know.  We are already in a really tough race with odds against us.  These two, with their stupid mistakes have just handed the GOP a whole bunch of undecided voters.

Please, Veep and Pres, just STFU for a while.

Probably coordinated through Putin and Xi to try to distract the U.S. and the world from Ukraine by creating a second crisis front. The U.S. has been too successful in foreign policy of late. What the U.S. needs to start doing is pawning off North Korea on China. Speak of the economic harm a North Korean nuclear strike or attack on the South & U.S. would have on China, when responding to North Korea with a sternly worded letter. Start treating China like a "parent" who needs to reign in their "kid", because we all know in the end when North Korea does something, Beijing has to write off on it.

Trump is the only POTUS to acknowledge and validate the N.Korean regime.

The only one. And the USA gained nothing in return.

Trump was a chump.

Because she misspoke? Because of a gaffe in a speech?

I don't think anyone with any critical thinking misunderstood the intent or the message, overall.

Every time they build a missile, they can't help but light it off, like a kid with a model rocket kit. The south should invade now, before they have time to build a new one.

Just my opinion the Biden administration seems disorganized, frequent gaffes, walking back statements, and Harris has a staffing problem. It would be a mistake for Biden and or Harris to run for a second term.

Yes.  Because by now you must realize that that is ALL it takes for the Republicans to pounce.  We don't need to give them any more reasons to do that.

And let's face it, that was not just a simple gaffe.  And she didn't even try to cover it up...  If it was so simple, she would have laughed and corrected herself instantly.  But she didn't. She just continued on.

So that is NOT simple.  She wasn't even aware of what she had done.

Mind you, I'm on her side.  I still support her and Biden.  But even I SEE how big of a mistake this was.  You can bet your ass the opposition is going to use this 1000x over.

And yes, this is a big problem.  Because the undecided voters are the ones that we need.  And the GO will use this to sway them to their side.  If you don't see this, you must be wearing the ultra-dark denial glasses.

I'm idly curious what the odds are of one of these missiles accidentally landing on someone's submarine.

UndeadPoetsSociety: I'm idly curious what the odds are of one of these missiles accidentally landing on someone's submarine.


The chances are pretty goddamned close to zero.  Mostly because they KNOW where they are firing these things.  And they know better than to provoke a hostile.  But also because it wouldn't matter if they did.  These rockets don't have warheads on them.  They are nothing but test rockets to show their capabilities.

There is very little chance they would cause any damage at all.
So even it one landed square on the top of someone's sub, it would just bounce off.
