I hope all ballistic missiles of the world should be automatically self destructive immediately after the launching and on the launching site.

Officials are saying now that this missile was a "dummy missile" since it self destructed.

Are they just saying this since it self destructed?

Maybe all missiles worldwide should be like this so nobody gets hurt.

Yesterday it was 23F, today it's about 37.4F. Snow has come a week ago. Why are you asking, anyway?:)
