There isn't that much left to the month...


I'm hoping something big before my History final tomorrow. Probably not...

I guess we will just have to wait and see what develops re both North Korea and Iran at the moment.

TOKYO — The United States has activated its missile defense system to deal with a possible North Korean missile test

Can someone explain something to me please? This system was activated yesterday/today? This system is not always activated? Does anyone know how this works? I mean, it almost sounds as if there has to be eminent danger for it to be turned on. Why is it not always on? If it's off, and someone sends a missle, what then? Wait to see it in the sky and then turn it on?

Thanx

Maybe they needed to improve it to work for unactivated missiles... or from a certain direction. Or maybe it just means they're keeping it on a higher guard than usual.

The “system” was moved from testing to active (live). Which really only means they may attempt to bring it down (if necessary).

Also…apparently the weather won’t clear over the region for a clean test launch until early Wednesday morning...no need to rush.

Well, that article is dated june 20th. So I assume it was activated today.

EDIT: Heres another news article on it from the washtimes.

According to Fox, North Korea said basically "Hey we're going to fire this test missile and there's nothing you can do about it
"

Question- Why would we want to do anything about it if it is just a test missile? Hmmm?

There's not a continental target in the US that doesn't require an ICBM with a range of at least 8500 KM.

Of course though, the very fact that they're pursuing ICBMs mean that they are looking at the US as a target.

Speculation is that NK's Taep’o-dong 2 will have a range of 6000-9000 KM. And possibly that a third stage is being developed which would enable it to reach further yet, as far as Chicago.

The governments of the U.S., Japan, and other nations don't trust North Korea to have the technology to rain death from afar. They fear that if the North Korean government has the potential to cause widespread destruction and havoc, then it will. This test missile is seen as a step towards that direction.

per cnn, the missile has a range of about 9300 miles and could reach alaska.


of course we'll shoot it down before it gets anywhere near US soil. that's if they're crazy enough to actually aim it at us.

Is it safe to come out yet?

Well, well....
I'm back....So sorry to tell you all that the birds are singing, the sun is shining, and all is well.
Funny, I don't see that anyone took up the challenge and opportunity to say their hypothesis (just a fancy word for BS on this site) and discussion was full of crapola.
No one is willing to admit they're wrong? Come on people, stand up and be counted.
Oops, forgot...you will now develop somesort of new theory to predict doom and gloom for a new date. How convenient!!!
OK freaks...nothing happened (just like I said) and nothing is going to happen.

Let it go people!!!

Remember the Alamo...aka TEXAS VOLUNTEER

My take on that is because the States, along with everyone else, knows that Kim Dong, er whatever, is a friggen lunatic. There has been many in the psychology field that say Kim has the mentality that of a child.

That said, to a child playing head games with the big people, test could be real. I second that notion of caution by the fact that, has NK ever said what the test target would be? Or even what direction the missle will follow?

At 9,300 miles, that can overshoot the US via Florida and remain airborn all the way to the middle of Columbia. Did you mean kilometers?

9300 mile range would put the missle in the Midwest, far past Alaska. I think miles and Kilometers have been confused here.

The US's largest ICBM, the Titan II, has an effective range of about 5,500 miles.
The most advanced version of the Atlas launch vehicle traveled about the same distance, however this was far beyond it's effective range in terms of accuracy.
The Minuteman has an effective range comparable to the Titan, but caries a smaller payload, and is the mainstay of our ICBM inventory.

Are we really to believe that North Korea has the financial and technological means to develope a launch vehicle cabable of almost twice teh range of anything the US has developed? I'll agree that it's only an assumption that they don't have this capability, but the possibility is slim to a degree that it's almost inplausible.

In order to target interior regions of the US, NK would need to launch from a sea going vessel, and unless it's hidden in some cave, they don't have any vessels equiped to transport and deploy such a launch vehicle.

Now, I stress that the above statements are assumptions. It's well within the realm of possibility that Kim Jong has come into posession of a rusky piece or two capable of penetrating the interior of the US mainland. It's also possible that our government has no knowledge of their posession of such a delivery vehicle. Further, it's possible that the US government is aware of KJI's posession of said vehicle, yet keeps this information from the rest of the world (including the US public). While possible, not probable.

.S. officials say evidence such as satellite pictures suggests Pyongyang may have finished fueling the Taepodong-2 missile, which some experts said could reach as far as Alaska.



U.S. officials have said the missile, believed to be a Taepodong-2, has a firing range of 9,300 miles and could reach as far as the U.S. West Coast. Most analysts, however, say North Korea is still a long way from perfecting technology that would make the missile accurate and capable of carrying a nuclear payload.

NY Daily News is blatantly wrong. The editor should be fired for allowing interchangeable use of miles and kilometers. Also, any map clearly shows that 9300 miles puts the range well past the "west coast". Lets not start putting stake in "media facts", until we apply "common sense" to validate them.
