Weather May Have Delayed North Korea's Planned Rocket Launch
North Korea said Saturday preparations for the launch were complete and liftoff was imminent, as U.S., Japanese and South Korean warships with radar plied waters near the communist nation to monitor what they fear is a long-range missile test.
Weather conditions Saturday, however, may have caused a delay of the launch.
"We thought the launch was likely today, but weather conditions at the rocket base may not have been favorable," South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted a presidential Blue House official as saying.
South Korea's meteorological agency said the location of the missile base was under mostly cloudy skies with occasionally strong winds.

Ok, my first post here so please excuse me. I am sick of dealing with North Korea. We play the little game of "don't do it or we impose sanctions". How many more sanctions can we put on them? The sanctions are mostly ineffective because their citizens are going to starve and be powerless regardless of the sanctions. The older Kim gets the more I worry about him going over the edge and doing something really stupid like tipping one of these rockets with a nuke and "test firing" it. I don't think all out war is a good choice for us, but this is getting old. Same with Iran and their nuke program but thats a different story.
