I hear news stories like this and I often wonder if this used to happen all the time. Before the days of the internet and video phones and traffic helicopters. Just a missile tech on a Navy ship somewhere with an itchy trigger finger. Or a mis-communication between ship and command.
Listen, it was probably just a test or a malfunction or something that slipped through the miles of red tape that our military is wrapped in. So here's a new rule I'd like our government to live by in the future for shit like this:
If it doesn't appear that it was an attack, then just admit that it was an un-announced local launch test of a harmless, non-weaponized missile.
Done. That's all I want. It will help me sleep better at night. Thank you.
