North Korea is expected to launch an ICBM at full range on Saturday — here's how it could go down



(businessinsider.com)-On Saturday, North Koreans will celebrate the anniversary of their country's founding, and experts think the country may mark the holiday with a full-range test of an intercontinental ballistic missile.

South Korean media earlier this week reported that a North Korean ICBM appeared to be on the move, and CNN cited the South Korean prime minister on Thursday as saying that "some believe" a launch Saturday was possible.

Also this week, North Korea said the US could expect more "gift packages" in the form of further missile testing. With only two successful tests on record, North Korea's latest ICBM is in need of further trials.

Full story there^

This is where I'm suppose to say something about this story, ok.
More drama, could be bad, could be nothing.
Time will tell.

It's like he's really come into his testosterone.

I'm surprised the fat bastard doesn't wait until 9/11.

The North Koreans seem big on marking anniversaries so it wouldn't surprise me if they were planning a launch.
As long as they don't fire it toward Guam they have nothing to fear , big bad Don won't do anything he'll just get red in the face and spout off again.

What's the betting they fire it toward Guam.

I predict the test will make it almost out of the atmosphere then suddenly have a catastrophic failure and never make it back down... No one will know what happened or at least no one will know publicly...

I mean, is this a literal translation? This seems like world class trolling and goading at this point.

Sweet.

The measure of a nations ability to place a warhead anywhere is putting a satellite in orbit.

They already did this back in 2016. But we're acting like this is new information to be a-scared of now...

Wrong.

Getting a piece of tumbling junk into orbit is easy. Just need enough velocity and height.

Getting something to go sub orbital and land exactly where you want it is the hard part.

Just because someone has enough rocket power to put something into orbit is absolutely NO measure of how accurate they can be when coming back down.

Hence one of the major reasons bigger and bigger yield nukes were made...so they didn't need to be that accurate.

I remember that story.

I always thought that's where this story came from.

The source is business insider, business insiders source is cnn, cnn's source is the south korean president, the south korean presidents source is "some people".

This particular missile was moved to a different side of North Korea than the prior launches. Expert still don't know exactly what that means. Could be a long-range test as a story indicates that would send it as close as possible to the Washington Oregon California coast.

If this launch occurs right when hurricane irma is bearing down on Florida that would be incredibly cruel timing.

The president of South Korea has been telling the media all week about the missile being transported in the darkness of night to a secret location for launch. I'm sure our military and intelligence already knows about it. I hope they destroy it on the launch pad before it takes off.

US needs to stop playing games and shoot the mother right out of the sky the second it exits Nork airspace. Then, with a flourish and a middle finger, tell Kim Jong Un "bring it, little boy" and see if we can't goad the idiot into contracting the US military to perform some demolition projects in and around Pyongyang.

That's actually the goal of North Korea, to takeover South Korea under their rule by nuclear blackmail (Telling the US to withdraw or face nuclear annihilation) and Fifth Columnists (Via North Korean sympathizers like the current SK President Moon Jae In) in the South.

if they would launch it, and it somehow got intercepted midflight, is that interception than considered an act of war?

Abso-f******-lutely. Shoot 'em down-every time one goes up-don't care where they aim it-we shoot em down-no matter if they have a pay load or not. Let Fat Boy celebrate his own little surprise packages.

That's what Teddy Roosevelt would have done.

Show them some of our own power-it'll be a nice little message to the scaredy cat Russians and China.

I guarantee you there's nothing in these little rockets but a bunch of ego and hubris; nothing we can't take care of. It's time.

LOL. Based on reports dating back to May.11/2017 when US B-1B Bombers from Guam carried out exercises in South Korea by releasing inert weapons at the Pilsung Range followed up by more provocation when US bombers were reported to overfly North Korea, which was in violation of international law: I give it 3:1 odds.
