    Re: North Korea launch fails quickly after liftoff

    I read somewhere it was supposed to have a range of 1600 miles. I wonder where they thought they'd send it??

    Apparently not 1600 miles in a row.

    I reply wonder what the ramifications are going to be. The Son will have to do something visible and dramatic to save face with his people.

    Rush another nuke test? Shell South Korea again? Sink another South Korean ship?

    Just another failure up north that will embarrass us again for being in the same race.
    Just a fun fact though, my family was the royal family (no joke, search for Goguryeo) that owned much of the Hanbando and Manju. Shame that much of it is now a wretched place named North Korea

    This. Before the rocket went up I told my husband, "If this thing fails with the world watching, people are going to die." Someone in their rocket program will be snagged, "tried" as a treasonous saboteur and executed.
