    Warning Inbound Ballistic Missile

    Sitting around having coffee when the TV and Smart Phones alerted. Warning inbound ballast missile... This is not a drill

    That was scary all of us huddled in the bathroom on the 7th floor building waiting for the explosion. We were waiting at least 20 minutes before we knew it was a false alarm.

    Glad I’m a Christian

    One of these days He'll come like a thief in the night. Many many won't be ready for the Lord's return. I'm glad you are a Christian too Rick.

    Probably not much you can do to survive a nuclear attack here on this island. They have been testing the warning system for two months now. My girls didn’t take heed and make any preparations in the event it was real. They were pissed off that it was a false alarm. I’m glad and pointed it out that it’s time to prepare.

    If I was a good surfer or paddle boarder / kayaker etc I'd paddle out as far as I could go and head for any island that wasn't hit. Of course EMP high altitude burst is the more likely scenario

    In reality I don't believe there will be any warning and it's amazing how many people think we can "shoot them down" we have no ICBM rentry (multiple warhead) vehicle defense except launching a counter attack

    btw the easy way to nuke Oahu would not be a missile it would be a shipping container brought into Pearl Harbor

    I went back and read my original post and realized I had used the word “exciting”. I changed the word to scary because it was scary. The warning stated that we were minutes from impact. Nicole was extremely upset even an hour afterwards.

    The likelihood of any accurate nuke attack is practically nil – the only source at the moment is North Korea, and all they can do is “lob” one into the sea to within 1000 square miles – “one” at a time, they have no more than that

    Not much consolation when you’re the recipient, but look at Japan – they have gone through this scenario multiple times already

    In contrast, Russia had over 300 nukes aimed at Britain alone, all of which would have been launched within one hour – most would have found their mark to within ten miles

    If the fat man with a funny haircut ever did let a live one loose anywhere near you, he’s going to unleash holy hell on his country – South Korea will take the brunt of it, a case of “unavoidable collateral damage”

    China is unlikely to want to get involved, preferring to remain neutral – they want to take over the world – not destroy it …….

    I don't blame you I'm pissed and I'm in Arizona but I'll be on the NorthShore first of March

    Why the hell would they notify if there is literally nothing that can be done

    Just remember all "warnings" will be fake remember how incompetent all government is they will never see it coming

    Now if you hear a nuke hit Guam grab some sea kayaks and paddle out ASAP
