    North Korea announces "satellite" launch date

    NKorea reasserts right to satellite launch

    Does anyone believe the NK government for a second? A communications satellite? How can they justify such an obvious lie given that it is illegal for NK citizens to even own cell phones and watch satellite t.v.?

    A 2006 UN Resolution forbids NK from engaging in the development of ballistic missile technology. While such technology would not be a direct threat to Europe or the U.S., both would suffer effects if the technology was used to disrupt the regional economic forces in Asia.

    Maybe if we send the shuttle up there and paste a US flag on it, the Chinese will shoot it down.

    Oh my, they are sure in trouble now.

    A UN resolution and a $1.50 will buy you a Coke in some places.

    Someone might want to inform the UN that N.Korea already has the missile, and is working on the warhead now.
