    I know we've played this game with them 10 or more times.

    And so there it goes the NK moratorium

    This is unfortunate, mostly for the North Korean people, even if it will only get 100 feet in the air.

    Because the US only agreed to give food on the condition that North Korea does not launch any long range missiles.

    A rocket going to space to put a satalite in space is considered a "long range missile"? I mean i really see no threat from this even if its considered a "missile"

    It's not "considered" a long range missile. It is a long range missile. And it certainly poses a thread, if only because North Korea does not have the technology to ensure that it's missile is safe to launch at all.

    So what's the alternative? Declaring war? Been there, done that. Sanctions? Been there, done that.
