North Korea says to reopen hotline to South


au.news.yahoo.com

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea said on Friday it will reopen a military hotline with the South, a move suggesting the secretive state may be tempering recent harsh rhetoric ahead of a widely condemned missile launch expected early next month.

Tension on the peninsula escalated further with the North's announcement it would launch a satellite between April 4 and 8.

Officials in Seoul and Washington say the launch is really a disguised test of its long-range Taepodong-2 missile and warned of punishment under a 2006 U.N. Security Council resolution that forbids Pyongyang from pursuing missile development.

Japan is expected to be in the path of any launch and plans to approve steps to destroy any rocket that falls onto its territory, Kyodo news agency said this week.

i belive Japan shoudl blow it outa da sky.
its time to leave the middle eastern conflicts and kick one up with the N. Koreans. they appear to really need their butts wiped. wel really just the leadership. the population gets to play the role of collateral.

they are puching the envelope. seing how far they can go before somebody responds. Japan has shown to be a world power in the past and i'm sure they can do it again.
The idea that they are testing a inter-continental rocket is far too plausible.

hope they haven't got their greasy mits on our scramjet technology.
