All those posts you're complaining about came in response to you fabricating a value of 32,000 mph. You are the source of your own complaint. Congrats.
Do you have a post in response to the topic of posting sources with no listed reference or not?

If not, have a nice day.

How about posting the source of your calculation? You know, the thing that started all of this, the thing you stated without a source...

Seems to be a common theme among American Presidents to confuse Syria with other nations - Trump remembers details of cake he was eating while launching missiles, but not which country he was attacking:

Trump recalls moment he launched missiles, confuses Iraq for Syria
Trump says he informed the leader of China of the missile strike “over dessert”.

“Let me explain something to you, this is during dessert,” he said of his meal with Jinping.

"We’ve just fired 59 missiles, all of which hit by the way, unbelievable, from hundreds of miles away, it’s brilliant it’s genius, what we have in terms of technology no-one can come close to competing.

So I said, we’ve just launched 59 missiles, heading to Iraq."

“Heading to Syria?” the host interjects.

This ain't a President...this is a senile old man who should go put his feet up and never appear in public as any kind of official.

NOT MY PRES..his party cheated..LOSERS

Funny. WHo is in the white house and currently the leader of the free world

Though I was not a Trump supporter, I was never in the "Not my president" camp because that is just stupid and delusional and counterproductive and un-American. He was our President whether I was thrilled about it or not. That's how this all works - Every 4 years we'll have an incumbent or someone brand spanking new in that office. If you don't like it, then you must be anti-democratic. Which is certainly you're right, but perhaps you should find another nation to call your home - This one is obviously not working for you. Look to 2022 & 2024 to make some changes, just as we've been doing for 200 years.

If your thing is to point out gaffes and missteps and such, we can do that all day. We have 4 years of DJT's inappropriate insults of war veterans/heroes, two-handed water sipping, shuffling on ramps, slurring and, as pointed out, forgetting that he ordered 59 cruise missiles to strike Syria and saying he hit Iraq. At least Biden hasn't forgotten where he ordered missiles to go and blow up things and people...yet.

It's not like you're insistent a 5 minute burn from 177,000lbf engine can elevate 159,000lbs to 4500km.

Correct.  I don't think anyone is suggesting that.  The mass at launch 159,000 lbs.  However, the huge majority of that mass doesn't get anywhere near apogee because it is ....what?  Here's some clues; its flammable, and there's none left after 5 minutes. 

Any ideas? 

Going off at a slight tangent, but lets expand our thinking a little; the standard US Army artillery piece is the M109 Howitzer.  Its barrel is 6 metres long (around 20 feet), and it fires a 155 mm shell around 13 miles (21 km).  I confess I don't know the answer to this myself (as I'm neither an artilleryman nor a rocket scientist), but I wonder how its burn time relates to its flight time?

hahahaha sucked in!  8)

What are you going to do about it? Nothing. Hopefully Biden (but likely Harris) can cheat their way through 2024 and keep the repugnicans out. Some Gerrymandering and moving a stack of liberals to deep red states should ensure a democrat victory every single time.  ;D

For the record, here's where the table comes from and here is the math used to populate it:

https://physicsfromplanetearth.wordpress.com/2018/01/14/the-range-of-north-korean-icbms-update/

Now why not show your math instead of dancing around every conceivable way to distract from showing your math? Put an end to the back and forth by just showing what you did. It's super weird that you won't just copy and paste your math into a post and are doing/saying so many other things except providing this one simple thing that is actually necessary. Why?

Further, a parabola extending 4500km to the y and 950km to the x in the span of a 5 minute burn, with a total flight time of 53 minutes?

LOL!!!

You're almost at the 'aha!' moment you so desperately need to arrive at.
Already there.

Regardless of anything else related to missile functioning, d=rt remains something that cannot be explained away in this case.

It's not like you're insistent a 5 minute burn from 177,000lbf engine can elevate 159,000lbs to 4500km. You want people to believe the engine doesn't need to be operational in order to achieve such a feat (which isn't possible to begin with, as no such altitude exists).

But by all means.

Continue with your fairytale. I understand they go quite well with binkies.

People who aren't friends with Israel have a pretty bad track record so I'm glad we are allied with them.

America doesn't exactly have a great track record either. I shudder that my country is allied with yours
