There's no need to worry about ballistic missiles launched off the coast of the United States
Of course we don't know why or who launched a ballistic missile off the coast of one of the most densely populated areas in the United States, but there's really no need to worry.

Our nation spends over $1 trillion of defense-related expenditures every year and our troops are dropping bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan as we speak.

Carry on.

1. Love the bomb.
All worship the glorious, life-giving bomb in the name of our Lord and Savior.

3. Stuff gets launched from Vandenberg AFB ALL THE TIME. I know
a civilian photographer whose job is to take pics of all the launches. He has a FULL-TIME JOB doing it, lol. And they are mostly satellite launches, not "ballistic missiles". Not sure whee you are getting your information but it's needlessly alarmist.

5. It was "off the coast" according to WHO??? If some idiot saw it from east of
Vandenberg, they would only know it was fired from the west. I think somebody has jumped to the erroneous conclusion that it was fired "off the coast".

I need more information. A photo taken from the coastline clearly showing the launch AND the coastline would mean something. Otherwise I am just laughing at the false alarm.
