How Safe Do You Feel Now...?

I don't want to rain on any one's parade here, but if you were thinking that the PTB were willing and/or able to always protect you, then you may be interested in this story from the Chronicle!

It's bad enough when something like this happens and the government steps in to put a stop to this type of activity, but when they don't even know who it was or where the missile or object came from...then your concern for the safety of you and yours should really take a hit!

I would hate to think that anyone could fire off a missile so close to land and not be spotted or found by all the spy stuff the PTB have at their disposal, ya know? Seems a little strange that they don't know who it was or what it was! At least, it does to me!

Pentagon can't explain 'missile' off California

By PAULINE JELINEK Associated Press © 2010 The Associated Press Nov. 9, 2010, 11:46AM WASHINGTON — The Pentagon Tuesday said it was trying to determine if a missile was launched Monday off the coast of Southern California and who might have launched it.

Spokesmen for the Navy, Air Force, Defense Department and North American Aerospace Defense Command said they were looking into a video posted on the CBS News website that appears to show a rocket or some other object shooting up into the sky and leaving a large contrail over the Pacific Ocean.

The video was shot by a KCBS helicopter, the station said Tuesday.

"Nobody within the Department of Defense that we've reached out to has been able to explain what this contrail is, where it came from," Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said. "So far, we've come up empty with any explanation."

Lapan said officials are talking to the Air Force, Navy and NORAD as well as civilian authorities who control and monitor air space. "Right now, all indications are that there was not (Department of Defense) involvement in this," Lapan said, adding that some object might have been launched by a private company.

Officials had no information to make them suspect that the action was taken by any U.S. adversary.
"At this point, until we know more information about what it may have been, there is not alarm," Lapan said. "But that could change depending on what we find out."

Now, really! I wouldn't be surprised in the least if tomorrow or even sooner, some plausible explanation is given by the government! Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing was just a government activity that went wrong, or at the very least, was staged! Stranger things have happened!

Do you think we'll ever know for sure what it was? Probably not! Are you comfortable in knowing that this type of activity is going on close to the coast? Probably not! Do you think there's a good chance that the whole thing will just go away for now? Probably so!

One way or another, you can bet that there are some government types in the mix somewhere! Of course, that's just my uninformed opinion, for what it's worth!

Now, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside on the patio. Just keep one eye on the sky, OK?

...could you imagine if it went inland(?)...well folks,TEOTWAWKI could have happened already...kinda scary stuff tho,were you prepared ?

...hell with it,let'em fly,lets get it started already...

So far, I have seen 8 to 10 people say it's a contrail from an airplane flying towards the camera.
I want to know why I see a bright orange light right in the middle of it right at the end. I am sure they will say it is the reflection of the sun. Another official said that you can see it change course and rockets don't do that. I am so calling bullshit on that statement. Yer trying to tell me you can't steer a rocket? Righhhhhht.

Where are the radar readouts? They have had all damn day to study those and say yes or no, it was an airplane. I am still waiting.

Hell, being that it happen in California,, it's probably just some stoners bong blew up!!

Mayberry said...

Contrail my butt. I saw the glow of the rocket engine too. That was a warning shot for China from a US ballistic missile sub is what it was...

HermitJim said...

Hey Ken...
Just goes to show that it could happen at any time!

Prep like hell, boys and girls!

Thanks for the visit, my friend!

Hey Busted...
They can explain all they want to, but eventually they will have to tell the truth! Too many folks saw this one...or at least the video!

Might get interesting, for sure!

Thanks for the visit today, buddy!

Hey Ben...
Strange things do seem to happen around that area, for sure!

Hey, buddy, thanks for coming by today!

Hey Mayberry...
Think a lot of folks saw just what you did! Gonna be interesting to see what they come up with!

Very interesting! Thanks for dropping in today, buddy!

I was listening to reports of this on talk radio last night. No one was claiming responsibility. Contrail my butt! To many people saw it.

Anonymous said...

A bit scary if it wasn´t a government missile! The North Koreans just waits for an excuse to start something.

No, no one of us will never know for sure what that thing was I´m afraid.

Take care!

HermitJim said...

Hey Bob...
Gonna be hard for them to just blow this one off! Somebody knows what it was, so why don't they just admit it and end the contraversy?

Thanks fort coming by today!

Hey Christer...
The one thing our government seems to be real good keeping secrets! For our own good, they say!

Folks would feel a lot better just knowing where it came from and what it was!

Hey, thanks for coming by today!

Bob Mc said...

Just my opinion, but someone did it just to show us they could. They don't have to claim responsibility; they made their point.

HermitJim said...

Hey Bob...
You may be right about this, my friend!

I think they made their point!

I appreciate the visit!

That's the gov't for you. Lie and deny, and then come in later with an explanation.
When they said "It wasn't us - end of story", I was thinking well maybe it was someone ELSE then - and you don't care?
That was no contrail, and they know it... but I guess it's better (for them) than admitting that Korea may have fired it from a nuclear sub and we just sat idly by.

chinasyndrome said...

HJ,maybe as Mayberry said! Or perhaps just the opposite,maybe it wasn't China warning Uncle Bama to quit devaluing their currency! Pretty dang scary whatever it was!

As Sgt. Schultz would say



SciFiChick said...

One of the "explanations" given on the MSM here was that it might have been just an optical illusion. Uhmmm... yeah, that's it!

Joseph R. McNulty said...

I think that our gov't is so corrupt and secretive that they know damn well how that rocket got launched. Sure, they should've notified the public but they are up to something. The fact that they "Don't know" where, what, how, or why, is a bunch of B.S. to me.
It is scary because, North Korea already has threatened us and I could see this being a fuel for them to fire one back on us. So if they are keeping something in the vault, they should really tell us incase this starts something we know damn well, we have no chance of finishing.
When I saw this on the news, I was slightly disturbed and alarmed internally. I immediately asked myself "What are we up to now?"
