    Re: SKorea: North Korea moved missile to east coast

    This morning NKorea moved another Med Range Missile onto their East Coast. To make matters worse. S Korea is confirming they have been placed upon launchers and are being readied to go.

    Also reported by us.....we cannot find two of their Subs, which have now gone missing.

    "For several decades, China has been North Korea's closest ally, largest trade partner and primary source of aid.
    However, Kurt Campbell, the former head of the State department in Asia, said there are signs that a relationship once described by Chairman Mao to be "as close as lips and teeth" is wearing thin.
    "There is a subtle shift in Chinese foreign policy. Over the short to medium term, that has the potential to affect the calculus in north east Asia," Mr Campbell said at a forum at John Hopkins university.
    "You have seen it at the United Nations (Security Council). We have seen it in our private discussions and you see it in statements in Beijing," he added.

    Mr Deng argued that China's relationship with North Korea had become a liability. "Why should China maintain relations with a regime and a country that will face failure sooner or later?" he asked. "Once North Korea has nuclear weapons, it cannot be ruled out that the capricious Kim regime will engage in nuclear blackmail against China," he added.
    Meanwhile, the Kaesong Industrial Complex, a key bellwether of relations between the North and the South, was closed on Friday for a national holiday.
    The North has blocked South Korean workers from entering the site, which lies six miles inside its border, for two days, although staff are permitted to leave the site.
    The South Korean Unification minister, Ryoo Kihl-jae, said the South was willing to evacuate the Kaesong if it was felt that its citizens were in danger. At present, however, he said the situation at Kaesong "is not very dangerous" and the government was "not considering" a shutdown.
    South Korea has also dispatched warships, in addition to the two US destroyers in the area, to monitor the North for a missile launch. Yonhap, the South Korean news agency, reported that two more missiles had been transported by North Korea to its east coast using its network of underground tunnels."

    Let's hope that China clamps down on the young dangerous Kim before he starts something that would be a disaster, and possibly WWIII.

    Published on Apr 5, 2013

    Two missiles have been transported by train to the coast, reports say, as the UN chief warns "the nuclear threat is not a game".North Korea has moved two missiles to its east coast and loaded them on mobile launchers, South Korea's Yonhap news agency has said.

    The move fuels fears of an imminent firing, which would further ramp up tensions in the peninsula.

    "It has been confirmed that North Korea, early this week, transported two Musudan mid-range missiles by train to the east coast and loaded them on vehicles equipped with launch pads," Yonhap quoted a top government official as saying, according to AFP.

    The official said the mobile launchers had since been hidden in special underground facilities, according to the report.

    Intelligence officials from the US, Japan and South Korea are monitoring the movement of the weapons. The Musudan missile is a mid-range weapon, meaning it is capable of reaching South Korea and Japan and perhaps also the US territory of Guam in the Pacific Ocean.

    "The range is between 3,000 to 4,000km (1,864 to 2,485 miles). There are major US military forces in Guam and a fixed number of troops to deal with the Korean peninsula, so I think these facts can reduce the possible danger there," said Kim Min-seok, South Korea's Defence Ministry spokesman.

    UN chief Ban Ki-moon said daily reports from Pyongyang were "really alarming and troubling" and urged North Korea to ease tensions.

    "Nuclear threat is not a game, it is very serious," he said, adding that any misjudgement or miscalculation could have "very serious implications". Speaking to Sky News, a security adviser to the South Korean government said there is no doubt that North Korea's capability is concerning.

    "The technological level of North Korean weapons has become much improved and better - especially their missile capability and their long-range artilleries," Kim Byungki said.

    "It is more uncertain, it is less predictable, there are more ways for them to destabilise us and there are more ways for us to respond ... so it is more complex.".....snip~

    Re: SKorea: North Korea moved missile to east coast

    I don't inderstand the significance of missiles being moved to their east coast. According to my maps that takes them further away from US bases in Japan and Guam and a microscopically small distance closer to continental USA. What's the deal about that?

    I can imagine a post like this if a launch were to be successful resulting in a mainland US hit...Sounds like you'd say,

    'I don't understand what the big deal is, the missile hit a rual area, and only killed 1,000 Americans....What's the big deal about that?'

    Hmmmmm....

    The Significance is it puts them in range especially if they were moved from the Central part of the peninsula or from their West Coast.

    Considering that Taepodong 2 was, essentially, a failure and lasted in the air for ... a minute (?) I'm not so worried about TD-3.
