  • Mysterious Missile Launch in Southern Cal

    What do you guys think this was? I'm opening the thread to legitimate theories as well as inviting wild speculation. The end of the story... about a show of force for Asia.. huh? Asia didn't believe we had ICBMs?

    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

      Is that official, or just an educated guess?

          I know! It was a stunt to promote that new game, COD Black Ops, right?

                Yes, spend millions of dollars we don't have as a "show of force." That's wonderful. I really hope that's not it. It'll be interesting to see what it is. My guess was an "oops" moment that they're trying to get a cover story for. Guess we'll see.

                    A launch by a Chinese or Russian sub, perhaps?

                    I am sure we know, but are not telling.

                      Just a couple bottle rockets tied together.

                      The retired government guy who hypothesized that it was an ICBM launch from a submarine, that actually makes sense, considering where it was fired from (out in the ocean)

                        It's probably that balloon dad trying to get another TV show.

                          Yeah, I didn't get that at all. Do we really need to show "Asia" that our missiles work? I thought that was just common knowledge. It was only countries like North Korea that have to launch their sh*tty missiles to show they work.

                              It is the beginning of the zombie apocalypse?

                              It is George Bush’s fault?

                              Dick Chaney and his evil company Halliburton are behind this?

                              The Air Force is having a bit of fun while the big boss is out of the country?

                              Nancy Pelosi blew a gasket when she found out that the rest of her party doesn’t want her in charge anymore?

                              Since NASA was unable to launch the shuttle last week the Air Force was showing them how it is done?
