Obviously, I doubt it was a live warhead, meaning it was probably just the rocket and some dummy ammo and did not contain actual fissile material.
It wasn't a warhead, it was a satellite, the first missile was actually a launch of North Korea's space program, except they aren't very good at it
and the first one failed. The rocket landed in Alaska and the technology was recovered. Too many soldiers based in Alaska have confirmed this for it
to be false, and it also explains why the first AEGIS SDI offshore platform is in Alaska.
The second launch, the one that failed the other day, was also a Satellite launch. I covered
it in this thread.
What is ironic, to answer the original question, is that nobody has any solutions. Clinton didn't, Bush doesn't, and everyone you read everywhere on
the internet replies to the question asked with sarcasim. It is a weakness I am proud Americans have, because it shows we are resisting the only
obvious answer which is violence. It is a result of the American way of trying to find the best in others, trying to apply logic to manic nutjobs like
I'll wait to see what happens, but I am yet to see any light at the end of the tunnel. The world is dealing with a man who spends virtually all of
his money on ballistic missiles and nuclear programs at a cost of starving his own people to death, and to make it worse, we can't even use food as
leverage because China already cut off food shipments
in what has to be the
most insane twist to the whole ordeal. I saw a panal discussing this tonight on TV, and while even the most conservative commentators were frustated
with the rash calls to war, the most liberal commentators were equally frustrated with North Korea's obvious insanity. The problem spans idealogies
in the Western world equally, leaving both sides of the political spectrum equally confused on the best coarse of action.
This is the insanity facing the diplomats, so it is hard to believe sane solutions will come out of negotiations. Hopefully the guy will die of a
heart attack and the region will change for the better.
