    New Community Design

    Thinking about doing a refresh design for Talk Jesus community here, possibly using a different software platform as well to replace the current. It'll still remain a "forum" software nonetheless. Please vote at this poll and share your feedback.

    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

US successfully tests shooting down ballistic missile

Discussion in 'News Stand' started by Chad, Aug 30, 2017.

    © Latonja Martin/Digital/Missile Defense Agency A medium-range ballistic missile target is launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai, Hawaii.

    CNN's Michael Callahan contributed to this report.

    The United States conducted a successful missile defense test that intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile off the coast of Hawaii early Wednesday morning, according to a statement from the US Missile Defense Agency.

    The Standard Missile-6, built by major US defense contracter Raytheon, intercepted the missile target at sea in its final seconds of flight after being fired from the USS John Paul Jones.

    The test comes amid heightened tensions between North Korea and the US. Earlier this week, an intermediate-range missile, identified by the North Koreans as a Hwasong-12, was fired over Japan.

    A US official, however, told CNN the test had been planned for a long time and before North Korea's latest provocation.

    The agency's director said the test was "a key milestone."

    "We are working closely with the fleet to develop this important new capability, and this was a key milestone in giving our Aegis BMD ships an enhanced capability to defeat ballistic missiles in their terminal phase," MDA Director Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves said in the statement. "We will continue developing ballistic missile defense technologies to stay ahead of the threat as it evolves."

    In another statement, Raytheon's SM-6 senior program director, Mike Campisi, said that the US government requested this technology earlier this year. It normally takes one to two years to create, but Raytheon said in the statement that it took them seven months.

    "Earlier this year, our customer requested an enhanced capability to deal with a sophisticated medium-range ballistic missile threat," he said in a statement "We did all this -- the analysis, coding and testing -- in seven months; a process that normally takes one to two years."

  2. When I think about the Leader of North Korea, my skin crawls. I wonder if he or another Leader of North Korea will be one of the "Kings" that makes an alliance with the anti-christ. At times Kim Jong-un behaves like a petulant child other times like a demon infested maniac. His people are crushed and starving while he wants to play war games.

    It would not be a bad idea for a government asset to enter North Korea and remove him from power, however; there is the highly likely chance that another snake will rise up and take his power and position, continuing the same rule.

    At the very least, I believe for the sake of humanity; we do need to go in and destroy whatever nuclear weaponry he might have his hands on, in addition to any military bases he has. If he has nothing to ignite and no fuel to ignite with,
    perhaps we can avoid a nuclear war. As I see it, if we do not stop him before hand, there will be no other choice. If Kim Jong-un sends a missile anywhere near Guam, a sovereign of the US, it will be viewed as an act of war against the US.

    Obviously we pray, however; Matthew 24 is coming and the Book of Revelation will not be denied.

  3. In reality (hence not on any news ;) ) a country cannot be destroyed/divided (or just attacked) without a decision made in advance by some local powerful/rich families (besides their foreign counterparts who have to play the enemies).
    After all, most of the today's victims in the attacked countries (including USA) are mostly (if not all) the men on bottom only (civilians, national forces, soldiers and mercenaries). And spreading destruction and misery in many parts on earth became rather easy in this 21st century. This is the main mission of the unbeatable international terrorist army that the common peoples in the world shouldn't know by whom it was created, is supported and funded (mainly since year 2001) while its multi-national fighters can move/travel on earth invisibly... with their various hi-tech explosives, his-tech weapons and hi-tech communication sets (via satellites) as well ;)

    In brief, the men in charge of ALL political and religious systems around the world serve (as masters or followers) what is known as "The New World Order"; NWO. It was decided, under the table of course and mainly by the American and Russian Elite, that, in every decade, some peoples should be treated as being sheep for milk (hence need just to be fooled by news while letting them work day and night in peace) and the rest be treated as sheep to be slaughtered (by terrorist attacks and during the battles between the national troops and terrorists).

    So please don't worry, the American and Russian people are rather safe as being the sheep for milk of the NWO, now and for many decades.
    Unfortunately, on the next decade, as planned, Europe will be re-destroyed; but now under the pretext to save the European peoples from terrorists and not from Nazis.

    You may think: How one can discover these scenarios and plans that are supposed to be out of sight. The answer is rather simple. One just needs to observe the world as a neutral independent observer looking for the truth for himself only. I guess most people cannot do and be so ;) On the other hand, Jesus also reminded me a simple but very effective hint that never fails which is: "Ye shall know them by their fruits.".
