Let them fire their missle...so what?
I'd rather let them have their 15 minutes off (non)fame, than really embarrass them and give them no other option but to go loco to 'save face'...

Also of great importance, is the little known fact that North Korea manufactures the Launch Vehicles for Iran's Nuclear Weapons Program. In other words, a successful launch by North Korea will essentially represent a "Sales Pitch", and thus increase Proliferation based orders from other Nations and Organizations.

Could you please provide a source for this little known fact that North Korea manufactures the Launch Vehicles for Iran's Nuclear Weapons.
Russia and the West would be making a big mistake if they ignored or underestimated the potential missile and nuclear threat coming from Iran, a Russian military expert said on Thursday.
News reports claimed that Iran is developing a 3,500-mile (5,632 kilometers) range missile called Shahab-6 that would be capable of reaching Europe. The technology for this system was cited as coming from Russia and North Korea.
Iran's Kosar launch vehicle was suggested to be the Iranian variant of the North Korea's Taep'o-dong-2 booster. The new missile was said to be undergoing design development with assistance from Russian aerospace technicians and state-run entities. … They are left with no other alternative but to work with the North Korean engine technology in their possession and their rework of it for the Shahab-5 and Shahab-6 programs in cooperation with North Korea.

Yep its cool to let the N. Korean's continue to advance in their long range ballistic missile technology, pretty soon, they will be able to hit Washington D.C.. That's why their testing the missile's to make sure when the day comes to launch em at targets they reach them.. the only thing that does not bother me is this nut's missiles cannot reach the east coast of America, but as long as mad man continues to test his missiles these days will be short. The New saddam, has nukes.
