The Shuttle and the a Satellite have to get to "escape velocity". Since there was a problem that the NK missile 2nd and 3rd stages didn't light off, it was one of 2 things. 1) out of control or 2) a ballistic missile. In either case the US navy should have launched SM-3s and taken it down. But the pres. has (grown a set) yet.
To me it is more like Germany in the 1930's. Look what the smooth talking nut job did.
Remember the UN sent troops to Korea 59 years ago. And they still haven't "brought the boys home". Remember the McCain comment that "we have to stop the casualites in Iraq". Do you understand what he meant now?
I'm pretty sure that launching the missile violates the cease fire, negotiated by the UN, over 50 years ago. The US and Japanesse have were there that have the capability to take down that missile. But the president didn't have the NADS to let them fire.
Why don't they reduce the taxes on cigarettes, so that those of us the smoke can die early, and save Social Security some money. After being taxed over and over again to pay for the "burden" I will put on the health care system, I am sure that this bill would not find money to treat me. But if I were on a illegal narcotic they would find the money to treat me.
You covered everthing but subprime mortgages. It reminds me of the poster of the mouse holding up a digit as the eagle swoops in.
No we would just be breaking a 57 year old cease fire. The VC did it all of the time. I have always heard that cease fire in Vietnanese translates to RESUPPLY.
Will you guys think for a second. The thing NK doesn't have yet is a delivery system for a nuke device. That is why they are test this missile. ICBM and Satellite launch tech isn't that much different. When they put the delivery system and the bomb together. They have something to sell to IRAN, terrorist.. whoever can come up with the money. NK will finally have something to export.
Do you think the reason they have on fear is because Iran got away with it a few weeks ago?
No this one is on Clinton. He signed a treaty with NK that said they would not develop nuclear weapons. Then in thier first attempt of blackmail, they kicked out the inspectors and started processing the used fuel rods.
And it has moved on from there. And now we have a Clinton as Sec of State do you think she has learned to tell if some is telling her the truth.
