…and This Just In

| May 18, 2017 | 48 Comments

It seems that Fatty Kim da T’ird, a/k/a NDtBF, is getting more and more annoyed that we aren’t paying enough attention to him.

First, he sends a butthurt letter to Congress complaining about it.

Now he’s got Seattle, WA, upset.  As you know already, Seattle is the home of Microsoft, Amazon and Boeing (which is considering moving everything to Illinois).  But because the Cold War ended before some of you were born, Seattle is also the babysitter for 1,300 nuclear warheads, per this AOL article. I’m trying to remember if there was a SAC base there in the long ago, when I lived 10 miles from a Soviet ICBM target city.

Washington State has a law that prevents planning for a nuclear attack. You can plan for evacuation, but in this day and age, do we really need it? However, despite its inland location, Seattle considers itself to be a prime target for the Cheeseslayer’s nuclear missiles (which haven’t worked so far), and there is legislation on the books to change the ‘no planning’ law to ‘plan for’, because one state legislator says it’s ‘silly’ to not plan for it.

Note that, according to this Express/UK article, down the page, the Chubster fired off another ballistic missile on Sunday. Per his own announcement, it’s capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

China has also entered into this boiling turmoil by lodging complaints against the US in regard to penalties on Chinese and Iranian figures. The fact that ‘figures’ is not defined could mean anything.

Since we’re doing business with China on a large scale, this needs to be addressed. It’s more important than two scoops of ice cream, isn’t it? Oh, sorry – I forgot that our media report on nothing and make a mountain out of a dimple in a sandbox.

My concern is that Kim Nodong-at-all is getting his shorts in a bunch over the lack of attention from the US, specifically. There is some suspicion that Norkiland was behind the WannaCry ransomware attack last week. The NYT has an article discussing the possibility that Norkiland was involved in the cyberhacking through sleeper cells. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/16/world/asia/north-korea-cyber-sleeper-cells-ransomware.html?_r=0

Yesterday, Norkiland launched a ferry service to Vladivostok, to try to develop economic cooperation between Russia and the Norks.

There’s a good timeline of Nork-related activities listed in the Express/UK article, events which are not being reported in most of the US media outlets, to their shame. It appears that how much ice cream one person gets, or what kind of salad dressing, is more important than events underway in the real world.

    I think Fairchild was the nearest SAC base. How much cash do you think it would take to get him to Nuke Seattle and DC? I’ve got some loose change rolling around on the floor of my car.

  2. Graybeard says:

    Washington State has a law that prohibits planning for a nuclear attack? That’s all Californicated up.

    And the MSM is losing market share so fast that they don’t even notice.

  3. USAFRetired says:

    I believe they are referring to Navy Boomers (SSBN) homeported at Bangor WA. Not sure where the Weapon Station for that homeport is.

    Fairchild is an AMC Base these days with Tanker aircraft only.

    • Silentium Est Aureum says:

      I’ll just say that there’s a VERY good reason why if you’re going from upper base to lower (Delta Pier, EHW) you follow the signs that say you do NOT get out of your car for any reason.

  4. Atkron says:

    Let’s see we have NS Bremerton, NS Everett, JB Lewis-McChord, Fairchild AFB, Yakima Training Center, and NAS Whidbey Island.

    Yet, I have heard nothing in any of the local news about this, so the fits must be small compared to the Seattle Mayor Ed ‘The Pedo’ Murray’s plan to tax soda @ $1.25.

  5. Atkron says:

    Boeing going to Illinois?

    Nah, just the HQ is all that will ever go there. Maybe Charleston SC will get more build work…but I don’t see Boeing totally leaving the PNW. Too many part assemblies come here from Asia to make it affordable to move all production to the mid-west. Boeing selling off it’s Wichita Operations to Spirit is a prime indicator.

    I like Trump’s (Mattis’s) game.
    Make the little bastard have a massive stroke.

    comes to mind ….

    but with less humorous overtones.

    But, butt, but don’t hate the commie; don’t fear the commies. I guess it is still too early for you know who.

  9. HMC Ret says:

    And today’s prize for the use of the greatest number of monikers goes to (drum roll, please) … PH2.

  10. Club Manager says:

    Fairchild had BUF’s as late as 78′ which was the last time I was there, probably much later. Spokane is quite a distance from Seattle but does anyone really think the Air Force would leave their nuc’s at a closed base? 337th Fighter Wing at Portland Intl Aprt had nuclear tipped AIM missiles until the base closed then the FANG (i.e. “friendly” Air National Guard) probably got them. The Navy probably has nuc missiles for their subs at Bremerton.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Here’s a brief clip from ‘Strategic Air Command’ w/Rock Hudson. This is the MTO practice scene. I wondered if those two actors should be standing so close to the runway, but then I watched realtime practice and realized there was no real danger.

    • USAFRetired says:

      Fairchild had BUFFs into the mid 90s. Remember the fatal crash in 94 when the dipshit pilot over performed the aircraft practicing for an airshow and killed all aboard. Turns out he had a history of such boneheaded stunts and no one called him on it.

      The AIR-2A Genie rockets went out of the inventory in the mid 80s. The F-106 was the last to have them. The 106s were retired not long after. The withdrawal of the AIR-2A sounded taps for the permanent NORAD presence flying routinely on the CONUS based E-3 AWACS. The NORAD Det at Tinker was around for a while more but was downsized/downgraded.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        I saw a video of that crash. Just horrifying. Why didn’t anyone stop him?

        • USAFRetired says:

          PH2 In a nutshell there was a failure in Senior leadership. One of the other fatalities in the crash was the Commander of the Bomb Squadron that owned the planes and the flying mission. He has tried to have Holland grounded, unsuccessfully as recently as a couple months prior. As he couldn’t get backing from senior leadership he did one of the few things he could do. He forbade any of his younger pilots from flying with Holland. So when Holland was selected to fly the airshow and practices, he flew as the co-pilot. I f you look closely at the video, just before impact you can see the co-pilots hatch departing the aircraft which tells me that the co-pilot had initiated the ejection sequence, just too late.

          I don’t know about Buffs, but the E-3 AWACS did have a cockpit voice recorder and when we lost one in Elmendorf about 15 months later we got to hear the final moments of that fatal crash as part of the accident review. So some of the larger aircraft have them.

    Isn’t it nice of Fatty McDipshit to line up all of those tanks on a beach out in the open for target practice? Such a bother to go look for them

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    My real-world concern is not that Humptyfat Dumptyfat over in Pongyan may actually succeed in launching a nuke strike, which is clearly possible.

    He’s racing toward that goal, triple-time. My concern is whether or not we, Japan, China or any other spot he might target has a way to shoot down whatever he launches before it gets very far, period. I know we sent a THAAD system to Japan, which upset the Chinese, but is that really sufficient to knock his experiments down?
