Another "Mistaken" incoming NK ballistic missile alert

Hi ATS! I'm not certain this is the right forum, but accidental or not, I figured this belongs more in "Dissecting Disinformation" (maybe MISinformation?) than "World War III."


Japan’s public broadcaster on Tuesday accidentally sent news alerts that North Korea had launched a missile and that citizens should take shelter — just days after the government of Hawaii had sent a similar warning to its citizens.


Tuesday in Japan, another false incoming ballistic missile alert. Desktop Link

Sure, either one could have been a mistake, but twice in a few days, with completely different individuals - and possibly (I don't know) alert system software/interface?

Japan issued their "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!" retraction 5 minutes after the alert.

I can see the possibility of a nervous operator in Japan, so focused on "don't screw this up", that they screw it up. Happens all the time in life. I was throwing a baseball against a brick wall near a window as a teen. Must have thrown about 80 pitches in a row, most right in the strike zone. A kid came by and said, "be careful or you'll break the window." Sure enough, next pitch was 3 feet off target, breaking the window. So I'll take that as a possibility.

I find it less likely otherwise that it was random chance. Sure, these things are probably being tested and updated more right now as Big Kimberly grows more capable, and less stable by the day, but the coincidence just seems to be TOO much.

With this second incident of "operator error", I'm leaning further toward it being done on purpose - some kind of early steps, pre-war psy-op prep on our (US/Japan) population. Planting a seed to grow into further fear and awareness of the threat which we maybe need to pre-emptively do something about.

The far-less likely, more "woo" possibility I can imagine is that nukes flew for real and were missile-defensed out of the sky, and this is cover-up. Since I don't know the limits of cover-up capabilities, I can't say this isn't a possibility, though I don't think it's a likely scenario.

Or a way of gauging the response from the populations in question and to see if they are frightened enough.

Yeah there was a thread yesterday on this. The Hawaii one, was an accident. The genius who designed the Hawaii program, put the options on a drop down menu, next to each other. One was test, the other was, this is not a test. The person who did it has been removed from that position, and they are going to fix the issue.


Not sure about Japan, but definitely an accident in Hawaii. The thing that is messed up, it took over 35 Min for the false alarm to be issued.

"The person who did it has been removed from that position,"

No doubt a thankless and stressful job........... but in the news, a man died of a heart attack brought on by the fear of an imminent nuclear attack.

There are consequences for mistakes.

Ballistic missile false alarms, Meteor sightings (Increased?), Flashes and Booms. It's almost as if an alien invasion has begun.

Yeah sure...because if the US government was successfully hacked by an unknown party and had a missile warning trigger i am OH SO SURE they would be completely honest about it and the general public would be the first ones to know...

Korean Peace talks? Bah...

Missile Alert, Missile Alert!

Go back to sleep sheep. The Ministry of Information will wake you when Korea is destroyed.

I can't say it was definitely an accident, as I didn't witness everything that happened first-hand. I can say that a nice tidy explanation was set forth. Whether it was true or not, only a handful of people know for sure.

Right. In my long-winded way, that's part of what I meant by "early psy-op." Both a way to influence the public mindset, and to guage it as well.

Didn't find the previously posted thread on this. HERE it is

I'm surprised by the relative lack of interest. Guess if there's anything to it besides a cross-cultural inability of 2 individuals to avoid making a simple, yet horrible error, we have a good starting point to follow now.
