What the object is doing now is irrelevant, what is relevant is that the Norks got it up there.
It usually takes two weeks to evaluate whether a satellite is successful.
I’m calling Horseclinton on this.
We should send the Rand Corp over there to help them out like Klinton did with the Chicoms when he was POTUS.
The first satellite, Russia’s “Sputnik” simply had a beeping radio transmitter so as to announce its presence to the world. My bet is the N. Koreans didn’t even have that and the satellite might just contain 100 kilos of Dear Leader’s old golf balls, empty Hennesy bottles or other junk.
If the Norks can only throw nukes as far as California, then they’re not a threat to Americans.
I’m more upset that we didn’t shoot the damn thing down just after launch, like we should do every time they try. Now we’ve let them prove out their technology.
Lots of other stuff to track on the main page. Enjoy!
