Rocket Man

Well, well, well. I knew that fat little toad was pushy and somewhat clever, and I also knew that his rapidly-promoted Kim Jong Sik was the genius behind improving the rocket science program. But the more recent news was that ND:tBF was using mostly solid fuel engines because they are easier and quicker to set up and launch.

While I do try to keep up to date on Whoopie Boy over there in the Starving North, there are other things that occasionally get my attention, such as feeding my herd of pussies.

So here’s the latest: Kim Jong Un’s rocket science experiments now show that he can make his own liquid fuel, UDMH aka unsymmetrical di-methyl hydrazine.

It does not require the use of oil, so cutting off his fuel oil supply is wasted energy, and anyway, he doesn’t care a whit how many Norks starve or freeze to death in Norkiland’s coming winter. Why would he? He has refuges hollowed out in the mountains. Remember that? And he does not care at all that it is extremely toxic stuff.

There’s a NASA video about the US rocket program embedded in the Aussie article, but the link for the YouTube video is here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDRKeM9kKxs

My understanding is that NASA went to solid fuel rockets partly because they were safer. Here’s a link to a tour through NASA’s rocket engine science section: https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/airplane/rocket.html

Pres. Trump intends to address this issue at the UN this week. Aussie Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has identified the issue as a priority for her meetings in New York this week. Maybe they feel somewhat threatened by it, too.

So there you have it: Fatty Kim da T’ird has not only been improving his rocket launches; he’s also been working hard on the nasty, toxic compounds that will send them higher, faster and further. He fired off a Hwasong-12 the other day. This time, it didn’t break up and fall down quite so quickly. His test shots are going higher and further, which means that a slightly more shallow trajectory to reach Guam is within his grasp.

Unfortunately, he’s scaring the Japanese, who are now into daily bomb shelter drills and for all I know, may go hourly on that. The current sanctions, frankly, do not seem to have much of an effect on ND:tBF, because he has his own larder and the Norks in general can starve where he’s concerned, unless he wants his ego fed by a parade. And he does not need oil to fuel his engines.

Spain has expelled the Nork ambassador. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2017/09/19/spain-expels-north-korean-ambassador/680077001/

The US military dropped live bombs at the Pilsung training range in South Korea on Sunday. http://www.pacom.mil/Media/News/News-Article-View/Article/1314000/japanese-korean-and-us-aircraft-conduct-show-of-force-in-response-to-north-kore/

This is where it becomes ridiculous. But unless he actually hits one of our territories or allies’ territories, is it appropriate to pound him? We also must remember that he can and does sell this technology to Iran and other bad governments.

I’ve said before that I may point and snicker, but I take this pompous-assed bully as seriously as cancer.

    Fatty ‘lil Kim-Cheese has become quite the spoiled child-megalomaniac that has everyone else around him perpetually shit-scared of arrest with confinement in a concentration camp or immediate execution for whatever charges he wants to make up against them, thus I don’t foresee anyone there wanting to even think about taking him out, let’s pray that we do have systems that can shoot his missiles down because IMHO it’s only a matter of time until he goes apeshit crazy enough to launch one in anger against either us or our allies.

  2. RGR 4-78 says:

    I wonder what Elton John has to say about this Rocket Man?

  3. AZtoVA says:

    We can always end the cease-fire with North Korea, as we did with Saddam’s Iraq.

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    The question I did not ask (just yet) is how many more ready-to-launch missiles does he have, and which ones will be loaded for detonation?

  5. Guard Bum says:

    Publically announce we are going to strike an area in eyesight of Pyonyang, something worthless that would result on few casualties, then fucking annihliate it. Give the Norks days to try and defend and then show them the potential consequences of their continued folly.

    We also ought to seize and board all of their vessels and only allow in food.

    Time to ratchet things up.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Even if we only allow food to go in, Kim-Cheese and his inner clique will take first dibs followed by the Nork Military, many of whom will still go hungry while they let their population starve.

    This in from Fox:

    Japan deploys missile interceptor near NKorea flight path

    TOKYO – Japan on Tuesday moved a mobile missile-defense system on the northern island of Hokkaido to a base near recent North Korean missile flyover routes.

    Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said a Patriot Advanced Capability-3 interceptor unit was deployed at the Hakodate base on southern Hokkaido “as a precaution” as part of government preparations for a possible emergency.

    Gloves seem to be coming off. It’s about time.

  7. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    Makes me wonder if/when Japan will do an “Israeli raid” and fly in below radar level to take out ND:tBF’s pre-prepped missles and assembly sites?

  8. Atkron says:

    I used to work both Delta II and Delta IV programs at CCAFS. Delta II used a hypergaulic fuel for it’s 2nd stage Arazine 50 and Nitrogen tetroxide.

    All that was needed was for those two substances to touch to create an explosion…in this case a controlled explosion creating thrust.

    1st stage was RP1 and LOX….

    Delta IV was different, it uses LOX and Hydrogen for both 1st and 2nd stages. The only by product was water vapor.

    But, both rockets could use expendable solid rocket motors strapped to the side of the booster for additional lifting capacity.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I know he has solid fuel rockets. He’s already tested those. This use of UDMH is giving him more successful launches and distances than he had before. He’s just hellbent on starting a fight. The issue is detecting which rockets carry warheads and which do not, but are simply test missiles.

      His goal is to reach the west coast of the USA. The US military should be prepared to stop anything he throws at us before it is even halfway here, loaded or not.

    • Mr. Pete says:

      Liquid fuel rocket motors provide much more energy for payload lift. That’s why space programs still use them. He’s using a particularly volatile and dangerous fuel in UDMH however.

      liquid fuel has significant drawbacks for military use. It has to be fueled soon before launch. That was the big drawback to the Scud system. Solid fuel systems can obviously be loaded substantially prior to use.

      His missle program has not really been fully militarized yet. He’s got to fuel them immediately prior to launch and I’m sure we know he’s doing it.

    Meantime, we pay more attention to football players not standing for the National Anthem, college pussies trying to redefine freedom of speech, continuing to look at the Russians for “hacking” the election, hear from Hillary Clinton about why she thinks she lost, the latest feminist way of coloring your vagina, and if Maddie is gonna get back together with Diggie.

  10. Ex-PH2 says:

    If you didn’t see the news last night, Pres. Trump threatened to ‘totally destroy’ North Korea. He also referred to the Official Cheeseslayer as ‘Rocket Man’. Durn! I thought I came up with that first. Oh, well, maybe next time.
    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-un-north-korean-leader-suicide-mission-n802596

    The tension is growing, but I do think part of Mr. Trump’s speech was bluster, since we have no way of knowing exactly what his real intentions are. Just a warning, I guess.
