    It's not the first time nor the last .... NK is just trying to stay relevant.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Dear leader taught fatboy all he knows, all he'll ever know. Fatboy is Dear Leaders clone (at least so far). If fatboy keeps his people hungry, afraid, weak and ignorant... why change a good thing for fatboy?

    If someone wants to attack us I'd like for them to get on with the ****.

    I feel like I've been waiting forever for **** to strike - and it doesn't - and I'm worn out from waiting to have my hsuband get sent off again.

    Lets get it over with - and get past the inevitable - if it's actually going to happen . . . this retarded sit-and-wait game is ****ing dumb and sucking up our energy and resources. . . which I think is the plan.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    With so many interceptors up and ready to go, I think that missile has a snowball's chance of landing anywhere relevant.

    Ahhh, I love the smell of sabres rattling in the morning.

    US monitors rocket launches from unfriendly nations.

    True, only this time the stakes are higher than they were in 2009 as the potential for tensions on the Korean peninsula to escalate into conflict are greater now than they were then. Also this launch apart from violating U.N. resolutions, and unlike previous launches, this rocket, will head not eastward over Japan and into the relatively empty Pacific but toward busier waters off Southeast Asia.

    This act from North Korea, coming so close after the world was prepared to once again restart diplomatic communications with them, is disappointing and it shows to the international community that the North Korean Regime is still a master at provocation.
