OK Ladies and Gentlemen here we go we have front row seats to the festivities hold on this could get bumpy real quick.



Reporting from Seoul -- The U.S. and South Korea today began annual war games involving tens of thousands of troops, prompting North Korea to call its military into "full combat readiness," saying it views the joint land and sea exercises as a prelude to an invasion.

The hostilities raised tensions on the Korean peninsula to their highest point in weeks as the U.S. and its allies anxiously awaited North Korea's test launch of its most advanced long-range missile.

Unless that Satellite goes straight up and up and up with no arch, it will get blown the the sky. For sure.

They will go to Obama and he will have no time to react, so he will ask the military advisors. The Advisers already stated they can and will shoot it down...

Probably near Osana USAF in Japan.


They already said it was a Taepong Dong II er something, didn't they?
[[or was that the U.S Media spewing that??]]

All n all, any arch on the rocket and will drop like panties at an Obama Speech.

Edit: Your source says "The hostilities raised tensions on the Korean peninsula to their highest point in weeks as the U.S. and its allies anxiously awaited North Korea's test launch of its most advanced long-range missile."

They just admit it's a missile...
I thought it was a satellite. Or was a right about the taepong dong II they been talking about.

The problem you now have is the prospect of the North Korean missile malfunctioning and blowing up 60 seconds or more into the flight.

The North Koreans will assume it's an attack.

Perfect time to hold the war games too - NOT.

Here is another image from the link provided in the OP.
I think this really does have the makings of something major especially with what the Chinese have done earlier with the Ship in international waters

Guys, I've been stationed here (in Korea) since 2007.

We are not poised for an invasion into the North. At all.

If something happens and that rocket or whatever blows up - the North maaaaay attack, they maaaaay not. Who knows? But our exercise here is not a prelude to an attack on the North.

If they attack the South - ie - they're using this satellite thing as an excuse to finally cross the DMZ, then things will go FUBAR. But as it stands, we're not readying for an invasion.

North Korean Premier Kim Yong Il to Visit China, KCNA Reports

March 10 (Bloomberg) -- North Korean Premier Kim Yong Il will soon make an official “goodwill visit” to China, the state-run Korea Central News Agency reported today. Kim accepted an invitation from Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, KCNA said, without providing further details of the visit. China is North Korea’s closest ally and a member of a six- party forum attempting to persuade the nation to scrap its nuclear weapons program. Negotiations are stalled, with the government in Pyongyang refusing to allow international inspectors to remove samples from its Yongbyon nuclear reactor.

So when is NK suppose to launch this missile? Most of the time when this happens we get all sorts of reports about seeing it being fueled on the launch pad etc but not this time. Have they not even gotten to that point and if not, then why all the talk like a launch is imminent?

That is what I have been wondering. And why doesn't North Korea just wait until after the war games? You never launch a bottle rocket when your neighbors are staring at you through their window, the same would apply here.

You know if they really just wanted to fire the darn thing off with no interference they would not have said anything at all about.

They are just letting everybody know so they can milk it for what it's worth.
