    Its definitiely a missile launch. Only question is was it one of ours, which seems less likely with each passing hour of not claiming such, or one by another country sending some sort of message. Our government likely knows exactly, but is not saying publicly, while it musters a formidable reaction that we will probably hear about soon. With Obammy out of the country like this, it makes any reaction more awkward.

    Dunno but that does seem like a decent sized missile. Gotta be military and if it's not, we've got maybe a squirmy little north korean (maybe Chinese?) sub off the coast of LA shooting off missiles to show they can.

    I wouldn't be so sure. I've heard reports that poor intercommunication and turf wars are still going on. Remember this the government that wasn't suspicious about pilot trainees not interested in learning to land.

    The trail was pretty large.
    A homemade cruise missile shouldn't leave a trail that big and a homemade rocket would need an enormous, while secluded, launch area to lift off something that big and not be noticed.

    Or do they... one TV Station calls it a missile and you all run with it. Can it be confirmed that its a "Missile" or did some guy build a rocket in his backyard?

    THIS IS OBAMAS DOING! If those 34 warships were there they would have stopped the "missile" that did no damage!!!!!!

    RAH RAH RAH SOcialism COmmunism! Detah panels hayefgiqlbflkhaiglauksdkjhksdg!!!!!!

    For **** sake. Shut the **** up.
    Neither model rockets, nor fireworks have a large enough signature to show up on NORAD's scope.

    Anything large enough to show up on NORAD's radar, definitely needs to be checked into.

    It showed up on NORAD's radar?

    Last I read I saw this and no mention of NORAD.

    The FAA ran radar replays of a large area west of Los Angeles based on media reports of the possible missile launch at approximately 5 p.m. (PT) on Monday. The radar replays did not reveal any fast moving, unidentified targets in that area," said FAA spokesman Ian Gregor.

    First, lets assess the damage, if any, before we go off half cocked... then speculate how, what, and who, and other possibilities like a radar goof, and other possibilities that may or may not ever be known.

Could it be a show of force and military might by our bumbling leader for some hairball reason? Or is it another nation letting us know that they can get close enough and have the means to attack our shores?

    Oh! My!

    Has someone been lighting farts again?

    I am saying the thing could be like what their expert said about the optical Illusion thing. It makes it look like it was going up instead of going down. Its been known to happen with a lot of UFO pictures someone mistakes a glare on the lens for a flying object, or three dots up in the sky that turn out to be flares or airplanes in the sky. Or like how a UFO that might have been a balloon caused the military in La too shoot randomly in air for 43 minutes in 1942. However, I will admit that it seems to be a missal for now until we are proven wrong. I wonder if this will cut in too the president trip to India.

    There, just another media over-exaggeration. Now we can all go back to sleep.
