Sure they do. Are you aware of the fact that the missile they're using to launch their "satellite" can't put it anywhere NEAR a useful orbit? Any communications satellite they could put into orbit on this missile would be out of site of North Korea for most of the day. Or that they have NEVER had a successful launch of this particular type of missile?
Why on earth would you risk launching your first satellite on a missile that you have only tested once and that test was a failure? Or try to launch a communications satellite into a completely useless orbit?

Like I said before in my original post.
It's just amazing to read posts from people who have not one clue what is really going on in N. Korea but continue to project their version of *truth* (cough choke) anyway.
Regardless of what you told us (yesterday) to be truth - TODAY North Korea has an operating satellite - in orbit.

The thing is, I have this extremely unsettled feeling after watching Obama's speech in Prague, and not sure why.
Something is off....I can't pin point it.
In politics, a regime is the form of government: the set of rules, cultural or social norms, etc. that regulate the operation of government and its interactions with society. For instance, the United States has one of the oldest regimes still active in the world, dating to the ratification of its Constitution in 1789. Although modern usage often gives the term a negative connotation, Webster's definition clearly states that the word "regime" refers simply to a form of government.
