Missiles over Hawaii.

Apparently a fake missile attack alert was sent out. Not a lot of info out there. Any islanders know anything?

Tulsi G said they were reinstituting the sirens and running drills. I suspect that was misinterpreted as a real alert.

According to news sources, it was human error.
Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Vern Miyagi is headed to the agency's 24-hour operations center to find out why the false alert about a ballistic missile was sent out, according to an email to CNN.

It's reported by CNN, WaPo, and the NY Times.

Therefore the "false alarm" is fake news.

The missiles are here. Say 'hello'.

There are many systems of philosophy and political life which try to base law and all human relationships upon the nature of man. Man is made the measure of all things. All such systems, whether communism or humanism, or socialism, are doomed to fail because of one fatal flaw: they do not recognize the sinful, self-centered nature of man.They ignore God and deify man.

Didn't Obama vacation there a while back. He probably sneaked out in the middle of the night and crossed some wires. I fully expect to read this in a Trump tweet at any moment, because OBAMA. MAGA - Morons are Governing America

Pretty much.

Seems as if Hawaii is turning into a paranoid freaksville.

If little Kim has a missile that can fly that far he's not going to target Hawaii. But Hawaii has freaked, possibly overcome with a sense of their own self-importance in the scheme of things. If little Kim loses his mind and launches he's going to target San Diego, LA, Seattle, or some other major metropolis.

Further, it astounds me that Hawaii has a single button that any idiot can push to activate the system. Obviously a system designed by a moron or a ganja smoking fool.

Lastly, if Hawaii was to be targeted that whole Civil Defense system is a joke. Go make yourself a drink, light up a fine cigar, and after 20 minutes kiss your ass goodbye.

Meh, it's hardly the first false alarm like this, though it is the first one in a long while. I've read stories about several false alarms back in cold war that almost started WW3. Most of them were caused by computer errors, faulty equipment or miscommunication.

Emergency Alert


BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND
TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER
THIS IS NOT A DRILL


"It was a mistake made during a standard procedure at the change over of a shift and an employee pushed the wrong button,"

The cell phone notification read: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT DRILL.”

gsgs comment- We have the technology, but not the "brainz" to design a system that does not scare people. I am guessing ambulances were busy with heart attack patients.
