The scary scary North Korea missile that got Obama whipped up into a frenzy turns out to be dud. It landed right in the Pacific Ocean. Mises might have expected this: the commies talk a big game but this nation is a backward basketcase in every way. Economically and technologically, they have no capacity to threaten anyone. It is hard to know what is more pathetic: the absurd bragging by the government there or the attempt by government here to portray this as a great source of alarm and fear. It was Rumsfeld, as the NYT reports, who warned in 1998 that North Korea’s amazing missile program threatens U.S. even without testing. Wrong again buddy.
Missile a dud
