One of my favorite movies was October Sky, released in 1999. Homer Hickham, a coal miner’s son was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father’s wishes. He builds rockets with the help of his friends and the encouragement of his teacher Miss Riley. Homer’s final rocket launch could be seen for miles and miles. We were always proud to be Americans.
Recently, the proud Chinese military also:
launched a rocket (DF-17) carrying a hypersonic glide vehicle that flew through low-orbit space, circling the globe before cruising towards its target, which it missed by two dozen (24) miles.Basically, this new Chinese ballistic missile was launched into space (much like the recent flight of William Shatner), and then returned to earth (Scotty: “I cannot change the laws of physics, Captain!”) on a very steep trajectory. Hypersonic missiles are very hard to defend and can achieve speeds faster than stock cars at a NASCAR race.
“The test showed that China had made astounding progress on hypersonic weapons and was far more advanced than US officials realized,” the report said, citing people briefed on the intelligence.
Apparently, the capability of the Chinese to launch this type of missile, “caught the U.S. Intelligence by surprise.” Ya think? The folks at the Pentagon are having a bad year. They lost a war in Afghanistan, abandoned a functional airbase, and forgot to remove billions of dollars of sensitive military equipment.
Then they vaporized a family of 10 with a missile launched from a drone (Oops, our bad but we are sending $$$ and coupons for Starbucks for Christmas). They are also terminating everyone in the military who is not fully vaccinated. Now that is a brilliant move. I’m sure that all of those highly trained, skilled personnel can be easily replaced. Hey, those ships can probably run themselves. One low-ranking, anonymous source from the Pentagon said, “Rocket? What Chinese rocket? That was just Joe Biden’s falling approval ratings streaking across the sky.” General Milley was also surprised. He angrily contacted his compadre in the Chinese military and said, “Hey dude. Like what's up with that magic rocket flying around the globe? You didn’t tell me. I thought we were BFFs. Totally not cool man.”
Someone saw this coming:

What about the Cream of Sum Yung Gai?
They probably had “Let’s Go Brandon” painted on the side of the Hypersonic Missile.
The US Military has been the Big dog so long that they have gotten complacent in many areas. That and the glacial bureaucracy makes it nearly impossible to come up with new ideas. Add to that the corruption with the contactors and we should be thankful that our enemies are even more corrupt.
Was that supposed to be a funny?
I am so doing a photoshop of that tonight...
Too busy spying on conservative Americans.
At those speeds, a bb could rip thru the vehicle like hot knife thru butter...the problem is getting the bb in the right spot at the right time
Joe Biden immediately offered to surrender.
Q: How do you keep an idiot occupied?
A: Put him in an oval office and tell him to stand in a corner!
That’s disgusting, and I’m ashamed that it was my first thought, too.
Jill ordered that.

and tell him to stand in a corner!
There... fixed it.
