    NK has a history of disguising missile tests as satellites.
    Ah, so that's it. Any time they launch anything you're going to get your panties in a bunch and call it a "provocation".

    Oh yeah, North Korea is one of the world's leaders in satellite technology I guess technically a meteorite is a satellite, so if they put a rock in the nose cone of their ICBM, they could "technically" call the mission "launching a satellite."

    I suppose if their "satellite launch" doesn't "just so happen" to wander in the direction of the Philippines or Japan then no harm is done. But if that sucker strays, you can be sure allied forces will be conducting spontaneous "satellite launches" with ABM systems.

    Re: North Korea says fuel being injected into rocket now

    Ahead of the illicit rocket test, the U.S. warned North Korea that it would cut off its resumption of food aid. In the wake of the failed test, the U.S. appears to have retreated on that position. Reuters reported, "The White House alluded to North Korea's chronic food shortages but did not address whether Washington would carry through on a tentative deal to provide nutritional assistance to the country." This ambiguity is not helpful. Failure to follow through on cutting off the aid would be even worse. Both acts suggest that U.S. threats of adverse consequences for North Korea's provocations are hollow. As a result, North Korea would continue to have strong incentives to pursue its illicit activities and provocations, calculating that there are either no lasting consequences (U.S. has always resumed food aid after interruptions without receiving concrete changes from North Korea) or none at all in cases (if the U.S. fails to follow through).

    Except it wasn't a weather satellite. According to the NK press release it was a test to see if it would take a greater amount of time for this rocket to crash and burn than the last one did. According to this criteria, the launch was a stunning success.

    NOTE: And it wasn't just fuel being pumped into the rocket. It was also a lot of bad mojo. LOL.

    It took the Soviets and I believe the Americans as well multiple attempts before their ICBM launches were successful. I don't see how this is any different TBH, considering the fact that the DPRK is isolated to the point where they're essentially reinventing the wheel.

    6. Is this legal?

    After North Korea conducted missile tests and a test of a nuclear weapon in 2006, and again in 2009, the UN Security Council passed a number of resolutions demanding that North Korea halt its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1718 states that "that the DPRK shall suspend all activities related to its ballistic missile programme and in this context re-establish its pre-existing commitments to a moratorium on missile launching." UNSCR 1874 "demands that the DPRK not conduct any further nuclear test or any launch using ballistic missile technology."

    North Korean officials claim that the Security Council Resolutions are illegal and that under the Outer Space Treaty, which North Korea signed just before its April 2009 launch, it has a right to right to the peaceful exploration of space. The vast majority of states that operate satellites in orbit do not have their own rocket programs, but rather purchase launch services from commercial vendors in a handful of countries.
