Posted on 01/13/2018 6:39:10 PM PST by Berlin_Freeper
Panic and confusion swept Hawaii on Saturday as a mistaken alert about a ballistic missile attack spread across the Pacific U.S. state, sending residents and tourists scrambling for shelter and questioning why an all-clear was not issued faster.
Rhonda Ramirez and Michael Sterling, both 56 and from Los Angeles, were staying at a hotel in the Waikiki tourist district when the state emergency agency issued the bogus alert at 8:07 a.m. HAST (1807 GMT).
Ramirez, a mortgage broker, immediately started crying. I was thinking, What could we do? There is nothing we can do with a missile,' said Sterling, a law firm employee.

I wonder how many Republicans were created in Hawaii today?
Explains Gabbard's strange accusation.
Kim must be overjoyed with this “error”.
I read in another article that:
a) this could and was initiated by a single person, and
b) the computer program controlling it had an, “Are you sure you want to do this?” option for that single person.
The good news is they got to test the system. The bad news is nobody will pay any attention if its a real alert.
I wonder how many half hour Christians were created?
I remember how liberals 30 years ago pooh-poohed Reagan’s missle defense system. Had we gone ahead with missle defense decades ago there would be little need for this panic. Of course the media will spin this as all due to Trumps saber rattling and how much safer we would be with Obama style appeasement of North Korea.
Wow! Good question!
Lil Kim is having a big party tonight with lots of laughs. The rice wine and liquor is flowing. A huge Samsung TV is playing a highlight reel of Hawaiians panicking. In continuous loop./
I honestly think this was some type of error. You and I both know that if NK was behind this, they’d instantly be turned into parquet flooring.
The incompetent democrat state government with its mindless bureaucrat screwed the goat on that one. I have never seen such actionable gross negligence. I expect massive law suits for mental anguish that will WIN!~! Children were being dropped in sewers and covered with man hole covers while these idiots screwed around for over 30 minutes!! Some never got the error messages because I assure you these boobs did not want to admit error. I really think people should be arrested and jailed for criminal negligence. I wonder if there was death not being reported by the liberal media, Government must be taught a strong message on this one.
I have the perfect solution to this problem: BOAKYAG!
Kim Jung Un may have been one of them.
Reminiscent of the EBS false alarm on
February 20, 1971. On that Saturday morning at 9:33 AM Eastern time, Telex machines in every broadcast station in America that was part of the EBS suddenly rang urgently with ten successive bellsa signal only used for an imminent EBS warningand then spat out a sheet reading, This is an Emergency Action Notification directed by the president. Normal broadcasting will cease immediately. The telex included the code word, Hatefulness.
It took Cheyenne Mountain 45 minutes to tell the United States with the authenticator word “impish” that nuclear Holocaust wasn’t going to be happening after all.
I wonder how many 9 month people were created.
With these insane anti Trump maniacs running around I can see one starting a war. Starting a war just to make Trump look bad!
The ONLY country with existential capability against the US is Russia. And we would never see them coming. There would be no warning, and it would be devastating. North Korea has nothing like that capability.
And the only think keeping Russia from exercising their capability is our capability to do the same to Russia.
It is called ‘deterrence’...
Libtard idiot blames us navy there making hawaii a target.
Hawaii is always going to be a target. It is a critical strategic piece of land, regardless.
