with an official from North American Aerospace Defense Command/U.S. Northern Command who told Fox News earlier that there was "no threat to the homeland."

WTF? 35miles off our coast is not a threat?

Well it is only California.

If it went up, where did it come down?

I bet it was the ChiComs politely showing some force to remind the pres that he is not the boss, they are...

I have a hard time believing that the NORAD radar system, or the radar systems of several military bases along the CA coast, or the radar systems at the LAX airport didn't track this "thing" from liftoff until it's final destination. I'm sure we'll find out in time.

With all the different US agencies investigating this and with little information so far I have very little confidence that we could stop any type of missile attack on the US.

No updated info on the KCBS LA station /huh:

Quote:(CBS) A mysterious missile launch off the southern California coast was caught by CBS affiliate KCBS's cameras Monday night, and officials are staying tight-lipped over the nature of the projectile.

CBS station KFMB put in calls to the Navy and Air Force Monday night about the striking launch off the coast of Los Angeles, which was easily visible from the coast, but the military has said nothing about the launch.

KFMB showed video of the apparent missile to former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Robert Ellsworth, who is also a former Deputy Secretary of Defense, to get his thoughts.

Scroll down for KFMB video showing the launch.

"It's spectacular… It takes people's breath away," said Ellsworth, calling the projectile, "a big missile".

Magnificent images were captured by the KCBS news helicopter in L.A. around sunset Monday evening. The location of the missile was about 35 miles out to sea, west of L.A. and north of Catalina Island.

A Navy spokesperson told KFMB it wasn't their missile. He said there was no Navy activity reported in the area Monday evening.

On Friday night, Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California, launched a Delta II rocket, carrying an Italian satellite into orbit, but a sergeant at the base told KFMB there had been no launches since then.

Ellsworth urged American to wait for definitive answers to come from the military.

When asked, however, what he thought it might be, the former ambassador said it could possibly have been a missile test timed as a demonstration of American military might as President Obama tours Asia.

"It could be a test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from a submarine … to demonstrate, mainly to Asia, that we can do that," speculated Ellsworth.

Ellsworth said such tests were carried out in the Atlantic to demonstrate America's power to the Soviets, when there was a Soviet Union, but he doesn't believe an ICBM has previously been tested by the U.S. over the Pacific.

Officially, at least, the projectile remains a mystery missile.

we couldn't..............

our missile defense is the equivalent of a bad karate instructor saying "punch me" to his student....and then saying, "no, with the other hand" so he could know where it came from.........


could have been someone calling our bluff before they spent money on an arms race the way Gorbachev did.
