Exactly.
It’s a hoax.
A ruse, a flimflam.

Seems I’m showing up your threads a bunch lately. Everyone on the street remaining calm? Calm is good. Am guessing these may not be fueled yet. Have a good guess on raised and perhaps not fueled?

A ruse

That's my guess too. For certain it is a flimflam. Now don't get me wrong, this situation is serious but there are more players on this chess board than Nks. Where is the other hand?

10-4 ... thought better about saying how to know earlier. Probably makes no difference if had spoken or typed it. Probably a known.

I’m thinking one drone, accidently goes “rogue,” and unexpectedly targets the raised missile...

Then again maybe we are leaving it there to see if it explodes on the pad or 30 - 90 seconds post-launch.
