Not probable IMO. Though good news for the SDI faction of the MI complex.

Spoke to rep Markey's office. This is crap I knew it just wanted to confirm. This was from a detected missile test years ago which the 3 rd stage fell just within 1,000 miles off the southern coast of Alaska.There is a post which links to the incident. Perhaps a piece of that missle washed up on the shore. On another Korean note, I was listening to WLS in Chicago this morning, and ironicly they had the other congressman in this story(Mark Kirk)on talking about the incident with the Mig 29s. I was not aware of this but he said that the United States feeds every child under the age of 15 in North Korea. That's 7,000,000 children (which seems like a low number). I wonder who's getting this food? The DPRK Army maybe?

Wouldn't NORAD be able to detect any airborne ICBM anywhere in the world?

Actually no. They would most likely detect the lauch, but the satellites that do that can't track the stuff after the engines shut down and out radar coverage is far from worldwide. Although by engine cutoff, you've got a good idea where the missle is heading, and by the speed it's doing it just before engine cutoff, you know about where it will come down.

ICBMs can't be GPS jammed -- they don't have guidance systems.

Sure they do, but they don't rely on external signals like GPS. They use accelerometers, gyros and stuff like that. Some may have used star trackers and/or "horizon sensors" which theoretically are "external signals" but not anything like GPS.

At which point in the trajectory are ICBM engines ususally shut down?

Well before half way to the target. Really just a few minutes into the flight. The payload and final stage are still going up when the engines cut off.

Your assumptions are showing.

You seem to assume that USA media is light years better than foreign media.

You seem to assume that foreign media are uniformly and uniquely and totally bogus, worthless, shams all the time.

Nonsense.

Some foreign media do better--especially at times--than do the NY TIMES, WASH POST, CNN, LA TIMES ETC. ETC. ETC.

BTW, how many years have you lived overseas?

How much foreign media have you acquainted yourself with in how diverse a set of contexts on how diverse a set of issues?

Methinks along with your assumptions, your blinders are showing.

Yep. Sub launched missles. We can watch known land based missle listes for launch signatures, but covering the entire ocean is pretty hard to do. Why do you think we spent so much time and money getting the best submarine fleet in the world if they weren't so darn sneaky.

Anyone know what the NK naval arsenal is like? Do they have ballistic missle subs? are they nuclear or diesle-electric? what about ships that can launched missles (can you fire ballistic missles from a ship?)

I seriously doubt this was launched from mainland NK.

I assume nothing and thereby I don't make an ass out of myself. A word to the wise is sufficient, charlie.

I judge by good old fashioned common sense and educated intellect, based on first hand knowledge and credible sources. I'm also a political conservative and don't place much credence in the likes of the "... NY TIMES, WASH POST, CNN, LA TIMES ETC. ETC. ETC.". And I place even less credibility in the foreign press.

A rule of thumb for me is, take half of what you hear/read and throw it out! Take half of the the half that's left and be highly skeptical of its pronouncements. That leaves about 25% for honest and fair minded folks to kick around and debate on political websites, like Free Republic.

Like I said, this article is pure monkeycrap and doesn't belong on FR. I think perhaps, you keep your head too often, where the sun don't shine.

Have read a wide diversity of materials from many arms of many extremes since working part time in the Jr High library.

Have also had an easy time drawing out a diversity of individuals on what they think and believe.

And, was taught by probably the best librarian, archivalist, rare pamphlet, ephemera etc. collector in the business . . . that it's often the fringe groups and publications that identify a trend first and most accurately.

Otherwise, my sifting and sorting in terms of percentages is probably not a great deal different from yours.

It still appears you have much to learn about foreign publications.

But if you've had your head in dark places avoiding them, I can understand your lack of experience with them.

>>>It still appears you have much to learn about foreign publications.

I would say, 15 years in Taiwan is far too much time away from the United States of America. You've been de-Americanized and must become acclimatized to this great land. Someday, you might even wake up and begin to better appreciate the freedom and liberty living in the USA affords you.

For me, a short stint in SE Asia many years ago and in more recent times, dealing directly in foreign markets, has taught me, how fortunate I was to have been born in this land of freedom and liberty. I wouldn't take a foreign post, for all the money in the world.

Glad you had the foreign exposure.

Sure I appreciate the freedoms I was born into.

Alas, I had more freedom to answer questions about God in the universities in Mainland China and in Taiwan than I'd probably have here.

Something's quite sad and upside down about that.

And, I suspect a lot of the freedoms we hold so dear and take so for granted are illusory or at best rice paper thin removed from being jerked well and brutally away.

And, in my experience, people in Mainland China--especially the more rural but not only--have much more of the care, respect and attention to relationships than has become so common here and sadly, in present day Taipei--though thankfully there's still a strong substrate for it even there.

Not only are neighborhoods and cities here fractured by the hideous leftists ideologies, manipulations and behaviors, families have forgotten or neglected to attend to what it means to be family.

And our precious values we are flooding the world with via Hollyweed is caring such fracturing of families far and wide. Though, certainly, normal human arrogance and greed as well as a range of lusts seem to do well enough without Hollyweed.

I treasure the US OF A wholeheartedly and served faithfully in her Navy and was glad to do so, honored to do so. Still willing to die for her.

But The US OF A is NOT Heaven. It is not flawless.

And any country or group who would elect Dilldo and Shrillary twice has more than a few screws loose and is short quite a few brick loads.

>>>But The US OF A is NOT Heaven. It is not flawless.

Never said it was heaven and never said it was flawless. By our nature, human beings aren't perfect creatures and the world isn't a perfect place either.

However, America remains, the greatest nation in human history. As Ronald Reagan said in 1964, "We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth...".

I sense quite a bit of pessimism in your rhetoric. If you are so adverse to this great nation, I suggest you move your butt back to Taiwan, or someother locale, that may better suit you. Your profile clearly indicates, you believe in a future of doom and gloom. I'd say, you need to cheer up. The world isn't coming to an end, anytime soon and remember, a little optimism goes a long way.

Perhaps Dilbo was kept out of the loop, and it was left unreported to deny the North Koreans the benefit of knowing where it went. They have no global tracking capability, so reporting it could only help them.

In addition, Dilbo did not have the cajones to DO anything about it, so a precedent would have been set that it's OK to launch missiles onto US soil.

The story here is the Clinton coverup, see post 45 I think with Bacon's interview.

Holy Cripes let me live in recession for eternity, but we cannot have these Dems in power with real threats like islamofacists and NKs with nukes. Scarey.

Since when did the European Union become a country?

Good question. If the EU wants to consider themselves a single nation, either revoke the individual UN votes of the constituent countries or grant a vote to each US state.

Finding an NK warhead in the Chilkoot Pass sure would be preferable to finding it in the Safeway parking lot in Anchorage or Fairbanks.

There is a group of so called conservatives and all of the left lunatics who apparently have been paid by their cash cow, Uncle Soddomite to try and divert attention from us killing their Uncle Soddomite. They scream and shout and point at their new villian the looney toon from NK and say GW is wasting time killing their Uncle Soddomite.

This whole thing reminds me of the Gravitas BS. The Looney Tune from NK will just have to take a number and wait for his turn to be killed and regime change in NK!

Your line here is great:
