    Anyway, the launch didn't fail. It was a success, just like the last one.

    We should drop leaflets of video frames of what the rocket really did so the slaves can see the lies of their government for themselves...

    I'm not sure we have such frames. It was a cloudy day so we might not have been able to capture video. Supposedly we had surveillance planes up there so we might have, I don't know.... If we do I'm sure these guys would gladly chuck the images across the border:

    Activists float leaflets criticising NKorea launch

    SEOUL: South Korean activists Monday floated messages criticising Pyongyang's rocket launch across the tense border into North Korea, a day after the communist state's blast-off sparked international anger.

    [...]

    The balloons, released at Imjingak just south of the heavily fortified frontier, carried messages reading "Down with dictator Kim Jong-Il" and "Missile (development) while letting people starve is nonsense."

    [...]

    Not that they'd believe us... It'd just be viewed as "propaganda."

    North Korea has been bullied for the past century by many nations, it is only natural that they too would reach out for arms.

    It is not our place to ask of them any of these things.
    Please share whatever you are smoking with the rest of the world's enlightened population.

    North Korea is bound by certain obligations which they chose to accept by entering the United Nations. If they don't like it, they can always pull out.

    Oh ok, because you said it then it must be true.

    Do you have something constructive to contribute or are you going to try and argue that we're all slaves? Freedom is slavery, right?

    The NK govt is claiming that the satellite is in orbit and working.....but the locals have no way of knowing. Their simple radios only receive govt propaganda broadcasts, and the simple people will be told that the satellite is working.
    A member of the Pueblo crew was in one of my college night classes in the early 80's, he told us some interesting stories about how propagandized and ignorant the officers are, so the regular citizens are probably even more ignorant....

    The thing is, when the Russians launched Sputnik they knew it was true. They knew it was true because they could see it and they could hear the radio transmissions. Our space observation equipment is infinitely more advanced now and nobody can see it. Nobody can hear this jingle that's supposedly being broadcast from the "satellite."

    I was just offering a little perspective on the North Korean issue, and find it comical that many westerners - typically Americans - attempt to paint North Korea as this totalitarian prison nation filled with ultra-nationalist lemmings led by a clinically insane leader bent on destroying/taking over the world.

    I don't think he is bent on destroying the world, and he knows he can't take it over, those are pretty much impossible for such a small country that isolates itself from the rest of the world. He just wants his daily dose of internet, the fine wines he imports, the good food at his table, all while his people suffer.
    Much like the kings and queens of Europe in their day...
