    North Korean Rocket fails, hours after claiming success.

    North Korea failed in its attempt to get a satellite into space after a rocket launch early on Sunday, US and South Korean officials say.

    Two stages of the rocket and its payload landed in the Pacific Ocean, a US military statement said.

    Hours earlier North Korea claimed the satellite had successfully been put into orbit and was transmitting data.

    The United States, Japan and South Korea suspect the launch was a cover for a long-range missile test.

    They strongly condemned the launch. US President Barack Obama urged Pyongyang to "refrain from further provocative actions".

    There going to try and build it again, i bet you. Hopefully the Japanese had the sense to go out to see and retrieve see, see if it really did have missiles i in it.

    Re: North Korean Rocket fails, hours after claiming success.

    Obama gave a talk in France about forcing North Korea to stop weapons testing and he actually got applause...

    Anyways, I think this shows more than anything the UN is a complete utter failure, and I think America should be the last nation to expect the Norks to lay down their arms. We don't even follow the international laws we help founded, what gives us the right to expect a nation that the past century has been bullied by Chinese, Russians, Japanese and most notably America. Some very large imperialistic nations have been ****ing with those people for a long time, and now we expect everything to be hunky doory, well guess what, unless you want war they are going to continue to do what is in there best interests.

    If I was a Nork I would be trying to create nukes just to be left the hell alone.

    What america requested from these rogue countries was very simple, peaceful, and would have been benificial to these countries in every way.

    But their lunatic leaders don't care about their general populations economic well being and only have their self centered tyrannical desires.

    What makes there leader a lunatic?

    Your opinion of the man, or what he actually is doing?

    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.

    All america is trying to do is make the world a safer, better place by promoting free elections by these countries citizens so that the power and direction of their country is in the votes of the people.

    These dictators would rather see their people suffer than to pass on the throne to a new leader.

    This is so much more justified in the economic sphere than the political sphere, right?

    How has North Korea been bullied? By giving them food? They starve their own people so they will have funds for a "communications" satellite, which I doubt ever existed in the first place. The load was likely a dummy/dudd. Now they can fire off another and claim that it is a second try to get their own satellite in orbit.
    Beats me why an isolationist govt like NK wants to communicate with the rest of the world, only dear leader gets to view the online porn....

    Analysts say NKorean rocket not a total failure-SEOUL, South Korea North Korea's rocket may have fallen into the sea, but military experts cautioned Monday against calling it a complete failure, noting that it traveled twice as far as any missile the country has launched

    Nobody's a slave in a free economy and the wealthy earned their wealth. The North Koreans are basically slaves. They work for nothing and get food rations and shoddy shelters. Exactly like a slave... Meanwhile their overlords live in luxury, with Kim possessing up to 17 palaces. Like a slave, they are not free to leave.

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

    At 11:20 a.m. the satellite Kwangmyongsong-2, a shining product of self-reliance, soared into space by carrier rocket Unha-2. It was smoothly and accurately put into its orbit 9 minutes and 2 seconds after being completely separated from the carrier rocket.
