People don't like to talk much about suicide. Providing a "good reason" can make it easier.

Any suicides in LA last night? Because of this, I mean.

And it would completely defeat the purpose of the test. An ICBM has a minimum range that it can hit, because of the way that it flies. That means that they have to be a certain distance from the target range. Moving out to sea puts them closer to the range, and closer to that minimum range, meaning that they either have to move the target range farther out, or risk missing it.

Did you read his first paragraph?
I did, and being launched from a sub why the pacific ocean? Why not from deep Atlantic? Then it would probably be unseen by most and those who did see it would have more fear of the US. This what's it's all about is fear anyway?

Who knows how reliable this info is, but a friend of mine said this was a muscle flexing show for Russia. He said they violated our air space and this was our way of flipping them off. Personally I think the only reason our military would do this at 6pm on a Saturday night over LA is to show someone interested in our defense technology how capable it is and the whole world was witness. Quite a sales tactic.



Yes, and they held off on the daily Haarp/chemtrail operations, specially for this occasion.
Wouldn't want us to miss the light show, right?

They've done that too. Produced some good UFO reports in the 1970's.

The Pacific is quite a bit wider than the Atlantic.
But if you're asking me for the reasons for operational decisions, I can't provide them. I'm not in on them.

Are you arguing just to argue? What is your real concern here?

Why would it be the US military's concern how scared someone is? Why should they care, they are the most powerful military in the world, they are already scary... have you seen their other weapons? They don't need to scare anyone.

Civilians shouldn't even be scared of these events to begin with, they should be more educated, and know what it is at first sight like a good majority of people did... but instead they are too busy staring at their smartphones and watching TV, ignorant of the world around them. They need to get out more.

I hate to admit that 5 of my dumb friends called me asking me what it was when they saw it in the sky... I took one glance at it and knew it was a rocket / missile and told them its normal. I even showed them past Minuteman III launch videos that look identical.

A lot of people are just clueless sometimes... why should the military waste any more money and resources than they already do just in hopes to not scare the clueless people?

If they launch in the Pacific, and land in the Pacific ranges, it doesn't fly over anywhere populated. If they launch in the Atlantic, and drop into the Pacific ranges, it goes all the way across North America. If it goes into the Atlantic ranges, they can't throw it as far as they can in the Pacific, so they don't get as much data.

Well don't know if it was our missiles or Russia or who did that, but it sure didn't look like a ufo.

I just don't know Phage? I think no one will ever know why all this is this way anymore. I often wonder why we as humans have to be at this point of warfare anymore? Call me nostalgic i miss the big space programs, warfare not so much.

I know why... because doing tests between California and Hawaii reduces the risk of another country thinking we are attacking them, and reduces chances of conflict, it also saves a lot on operational costs.

Another reason is because the locations of US Navy nuclear submarines are supposed to be closely guarded secrets. Nothing says "Here I am!" quite like shooting off a long range missile around sunset. If you do that out in the open, out in the deep Atlantic, there are certain risks involved as opposed to doing it right here close to home where we have control of the entire area.

No its not about fear, if that were true I think they would do more than shoot off a little missile right after sunset.

Yes. I did.
I had friends with fallout shelters. And it was going on at the same time a Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo.

Are you calling me STUPID? That was a "stupid" move on your part. I am just voicing my opinions and and questions and having discussions here. how dare you?

I imagine all the red lights were flashing on enemy social media. Maybe that was the point, stress testing the enemy....seeing who calls whom within the command chain, so it could be disrupted more easily at a later time.

Pretty interesting data set could be obtained and analysed when the news of a go launch comes in really fast, and not from normal military channels and their detection methods.

If anyone has insight on this theory....

In all likelihood, "the enemy" had been informed that the launch was going to occur.

That's like a generation before me. I always thought is was pointless and laughable. I feel bad for you now actually. You must have great fears and baggage from that huh?

No.
But it does make a lot of complaints from subsequent generations seem quite petty in comparison.
