(Newser) – North Korea has been throwing around plenty of fighting words lately, but two things that won't be getting off the ground anytime soon: a pair of Musudan missiles, which Pyongyang has just removed from a launch site on the country's east coast, reports CNN. The missiles were believed to be within range of US military bases in Japan and Guam. A US official confirms the missiles have now been moved to a storage facility.

They're probably just for show, just like we found out about a lot of the U.S.S.R.'s were after the cold war ended.

Every time they tried to crank up the missiles the wires fell off.
