Nice Intro.


So, which was it, directed energy weapon from space, or sabotage from the ground? You make a bold claim, and then you make an entirely different claim.

Or, I suppose, could it really be...... they just f'd it up like all their previous launches?

If this was truly the case, and I am far from believing this without evidence, the North Koreans would have had video posted and not come out to say their rocket was a failure. This thread is garbage.

Hi - Thanks for all your points of view.

North Korea did not intentionally do this - they would not have associated with it their Supreme (now dead) leader - as he is regarded as a god - and would never be associated with failure.

This is an embarrassment on an international stage of huge proportions, and they lost the food aid, among with other massive diplomatic hassles.

The answer to sabotage on the ground, or star wars weapon is not known - The US are not so secretly touting the directed energy weapon theory internally (Source: Anonymous Hacker) but may be lying to worry China and Russia. The ground sabotage is what North Korea believe (Source: Anonymous Hacker) but they may be using that as an excuse to execute the people they hold responsible. I have seen the documents from a member of anonymous - nothing is as it seems.

I don't suppose anyone would ever admit to having used this system but I think the OP is talking about the airborne laser system.

I wonder what the U.S. Air Force's X-37B was doing at the time off this launch?
It's still up there isn't it?

That's what I was thinking....This reeks of sabotage. The question of WHO did the sabotaging is up for debate.


There's also the strong possibility that the North Koreans are a bunch of incompetent boobs. Frankly I lean towards the latter.

"Official" word is the Boeing YAL-1 was retired to the bone yard in a hanger due to a lack of funding...
Personally, I have a hard time believing that. It's the FASTEST anti-missile system the DOD has.
Why retire that? I have a sneaky suspicion they released that press release for Russia and China.


I wouldn't be surprised that they don't build a few more. I mean, imagine at the speed of light, tracking
a missile and rendering it null in seconds... It's amazing tech, and I HOPE they didn't retire it.
