Fuel trucks, equipment reportedly have left launch pad

Funny if they did it on the 4th huh?

NK May be getting ready

Why its funny....isnt it

"It's the Fourth of July and they know we are watching and they like to play with us," said one official, who has followed the North Korean program for years

The removal of the fuel trucks and other auxiliary equipment means the North Koreans may have finished fueling the missile, said the officials, who did not want to be named because of the sensitivity of the information.

Should the North Koreans have completed the fueling "all they would need to do now is press the button," one of the sources said

Go ahead and push it......why you ask?

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is taking steps to be ready for a possible military response to a North Korean missile launch.

The U.S. Northern Command recently increased security measures at its Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a military official confirmed.

Some command and control operations there might be used if the United States launched an interceptor missile in an attempt to shoot down the North Korean missile.

In other planning measures instituted in the past several days, Northern Command, along with the Federal Aviation Administration, has put standby commercial flight restrictions into place over Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and Fort Greely, Alaska, where the U.S. interceptor missiles are based.

We got your back


But not the one in which we are talking about...

Is there any news coverage on this launched missile then?

Just noticed the red breaking news bar, nothing else except that, waiting for detailed news coverage.

"It should make people nervous when nontransparent regimes, that have announced that they've got nuclear warheads, fire missiles," Bush said. "This is not the way you conduct business in the world. This is not the way that peaceful nations conduct their affairs."

Yeah take it from the guy who is responsible for "Shock and Awe" and the deaths of 50,000 civilians. Thats the way to do business obviously.

"WASHINGTON — North Korea has test-fired a non-intercontinental ballistic missile, Japanese news NHK reported on Tuesday.

The missile is not believed to be the Taepodong missile that has been sitting on a launch pad for weeks. The missile landed in the Sea of Japan about 600 kilometers from mainland Japan, NHK said."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - North Korea launched a long-range Taepodong-2 missile and two small Scud-type missiles within a two-hour period, but the long-range missile appears to have failed, a diplomatic source told Reuters on Tuesday.

So was one of the missles a Taepodong 2 or not ??
