    Being the naturally suspicious type, I wonder what is really going on behind the curtain.

    NK's advancements, as we all know, are way too fast, even given that BJ Clinton
    gave them a reactor in exchange for a campaign contribution when he was Pres.

    So, who could gain some intel while KJU plays his game with donated nukes?

    I think China, with a lesser extent Russia. Let the US move their high tech
    weaponry and observe how it works and its faults. China/Russia play long term
    chess games, while US leaders (of the past), play the fiddle while the US burns.

    The US had Harvey with massive destruction in Tx, Irma chewing up FL,
    the recent 8.? earthquake causing tidal waves in the Carribean, the left
    with its destruction, now NK with its nonsense, or is it nonsense?

    I hope our missiles don't miss their targets.\

    The problem I see with shooting them down is if we miss one. It would embolden that sawed off idiot, and like was said, educate our enemies.
    Once on safari in deepest darkest Afganistan we ran out of Gin, and were compelled to survive on food and water for several days.

    I doubt we will shoot down any. Trump supposedly said shoot down any that would be a danger to US soil or bases. So far none have been aimed at US soil or bases. Also many people have the incorrect thought that we have the ability to shoot down any missile any where. Well we don't. Most of our anti-ballistic missiles have very short range, way less than 100 miles in most cases.
    Yes we do have some of our Aegis cruisers (you know the ones that get rammed by other ships at sea) that carry anti-ballistic missiles that are capable of shooting down ICBMs in mid-flight. We don't have a lot of them and they still have to be in the correct position to shoot down a missile and they do not have a very good track record.

    So far, North Korea has a history of launching missiles on holidays and anniversaries that we have here in the states. The 16th anniversary of 9/11 is on Monday.
    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best

    9-9 is basically North Korea's fourth of July. It is a big deal there.

    Huge Solar Flare Sparks Widespread Blackouts, May Deter Korean Missile Launch This Weekend

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0...launch-weekend

    In fact, as SHTFplan.com's Mac Slavo details, this is the largest solar flare emitted in the past decade, and the earth has already been affected by blackouts.

    NASA has reported a huge solar flare was emitted by the Sun and it is the most powerful one since 2006.

    This solar flare has already caused some radio blackouts on Earth and it may cause aurora visible as far south as London. On the morning of September 6, scientists watched as two X-flares were unleashed by the sun.
    The stronger flare was the second of the two emitted by the Sun yesterday morning and it was seen by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). At 5:10 AM EDT, the Sun unleashed an X2.2 flare, with X-class denoting the most intense flares. Then, at 8:02 AM EDT, a much bigger flare measuring X9.3 was unleashed. By comparison, the last time we saw a flare this big was in 2006, which measured at X9.0. The number shows the intensity, with X2 being twice as intense as X1, X3 three times as intense, and so on.

    The loops of plasma emitted during these two flares were ten times the size of planet Earth. Scientists got to watch the massive coronal mass ejection from these flares, which can be seen below in the gif provided.
    But there is a silver-lining to this massive solar flare.

    As Bloomberg points out, North Korea could decide to delay its next ballistic missile launch because the current outbreak of severe geomagnetic storms can pose a risk to electronic equipment.

    As we detailed previously, South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon said Thursday the next launch could come on Saturday, the anniversary of North Korea’s founding.

    But, while missiles are generally heavily shielded against radiation, Kim Jong Un may decide not to risk firing one during the solar flares in case they lose data or ancillary equipment, said Lance Gatling, an aerospace consultant with Nexial Research in Tokyo.

    He added that the U.S. and Japan might be hoping for a launch so they can test detection and tracking equipment in a storm environment.

    But while that temporary cessation of North Korea's nuclear development is positive, StockBoardAsset notes that the solar flare shows that our modern economies and societies are fragile.
