    North Korea says fuel being injected into rocket now

    North Korea was injecting fuel into a long-range rocket “as we speak”, the head of the North Korean satellite control centre said on Wednesday ahead of a launch condemned by its neighbours and the West.
    “I think the fuel injection will be completed at an appropriate date,” Paek Chang-ho, head of the satellite control centre of the Korean Committee of Space Technology, told a group of foreign journalists.
    He would not comment on when the fuel injection would be complete. “And as for the exact timing of the launch, it will be decided by my superiors”, Paek said.
    Regional powers said the launch, due sometime between Thursday and next Monday, is a disguised test of the North’s long-range missile. The North says it is merely putting a weather satellite into space.
    North Korea's long range rocket launch is provocative action!!!!

    This imminent provocation is par for the course for North Korea. Each time the international community eases with the goal that the goodwill would lead to flexibility on the part of North Korea, North Korea exploits that easing. The new North Korean regime is eager to demonstrate toughness and provocations serve that purpose.

    The international community would do well to insist on strict reciprocity with North Korea when it comes to any kind of assistance, even humanitarian aid. Any assistance or other concession should be furnished only with North Korea's providing a specific and verified concession of its own. International aid can provide a source of leverage, but only if it is linked to North Korean conduct. Repeated failure to sustain such linkage only strengthens North Korea's conclusions that its provocations have no lasting adverse consequences. Hence, it finds the cost-benefit calculation in its favor and continues to engage in provocations, not to mention its ongoing illicit nuclear activities.

    The more we ignore them, the more they have hissy fits. How far do you propose to let them go? Their provocations can be strong at times and may force a conflict before diplomacy could have an effect. SK is becoming more fed up with NK's antogonism. The next artillery attack may create an SK military response before diplomacy can smooth things over.

    This imminent provocation blah blah blah...
    blah blah blah hissy fits blah blah blah
    I don't see how launching a weather satellite is a hissy fit.

    I'm thinking the boy has less to show off to us than he does to his own generals. I'd be willing to be that that country is an armpit hair away from a military coup and Il is trying to preserve an image of toughness so as to not give a crevasse of light for the generals to use an excuse to boot him for being too weak.

    NK has a history of disguising missile tests as satellites.
