    UN to respond to Korea Rocket launch at emergency meeting

    North Korea said the rocket put a satellite into orbit but the US and South Korea disputed this, saying it was a cover for a missile test.

    They said the launch failed, with parts of the rocket landing in the Pacific.

    Hopefully whatever the outcome, North Korea will be crushed economically, even more so than now.

    They've already crushed themselves economically. They subsist on aid that they get through nuclear blackmail. There are a lot of measures that can be taken outside of the UN, not that I think Obama has the balls to do it.

    How the hell can it be crushed anymore economically? Something ridiculous like 1 million people die a year in that country due to starvation. North Korea doesn't need more sanctions it needs a new government, that isn't rogue and that is willing to feed its people.
    If I had a billion dollars?

    Too bad we are a broke country now otherwise I would support a replay of Iraq in NKorea, Iran, etc.

    Whats the UN going to do about it really? Write them a letter? Send a team to "investigate"?

    That'll teach 'em.

    The problem is that the generation that remembers war, treachery, and surprise attacks is dead or dying. The responses of the international community are unsurprising. All the tyrants came out in support of the DPRK while the free nations of the world denounced it. Surprise, surprise... Now we're all just going to disarm ourselves and live in peace and harmony. Lord help us all.

    Remember Pearl Harbor.

    You hope they fail or their policies fail?
