Well they launched & ole Kim Jung is probably rolling his fat little ass all around the floor in elation that Japan & the U.S. did nothing at all in retaliation. We seem to do no more than talk anymore, Diplomatic talk & drivel is all we know. Sanctions & slaps on the wrists is all we can muster these days no wonder we are where we are. Fat assed bloated Senators & Congressmen sit in their lobbiest coiffed offices drinking aged Scotch acting important, while the President looks for more Diplomatic ways to solve the problem. What have we become? Are we to sit back & let this over weight little inbreaded retard get away with this? & what will we the people do, have more non violent Tea Parties to make us all feel like we're accomplishing something? We've become a Nation of soft timid little people affraid to hurt or offrend others...**ck that, someone needs to kick ass in a big way before its too late!!!!! Please excuse me if I posted this in the wrong place its my first one, feel free to move it if needed.

This crazy Kim just wants attention. Spending all this money to shoot this thing, while most of his people freeze and starve. Our military tires of this crap.

Well, if I was a Dictator and I had a rocket, I would want to set it off. What's the point of being the boss if you can't do what you want!

They should be attacked for this?



State media said a satellite had been put into orbit and was transmitting data and revolutionary songs.



Justice?



Washington, Tokyo and Seoul regard the launch as a clear violation of Security Council resolution 1718 adopted in October 2006, which bans North Korea from carrying out ballistic missile activity.


news.bbc.co.uk...

More irritating stuff:



In a previous satellite launch attempt in 1998, North Korea said it was sending up a device that would orbit the world transmitting revolutionary melodies.



Tune up your radios folks:




It claimed this was also successful but the launch is believed to have been a failure as no trace of the satellite was ever found.


They have mastered stealth technology...

If only that were true...

No matter.

North Korea has every right to launch whatever they want into orbit - just like we do.

The more countries that create space access systems - the better off we will all be for it.

I agree.

Since when is the U.S. the space police?

"Its okay when we do it, but anyone else...OH NO."

Exactly - that is why we need to worry - but we won't get a choice.

Agreed, the US has no right to say who can do what even though they really believe they have.
Its like this new nuclear thing that obama is going to propose to stop testing etc. Now that they have thousanda of missiles

I believe it is the end of the world as we know it.

And I pray for the people - and beleve Jesus Christ will save the world.

If a failed satellite launch is all it takes for you to believe the end of the world is near, no wonder Christianity is a dying system.

Look, a delivery system test isn't the end of the world.
They've got at most a few warheads... what could they possibly do with that other than ensure their own demise?

And if the world ever does reach a doomsday scenario ;
1: It won't be pathetic little North Korea doing it, and...
2: I should hope you'd be on your feet helping the rest of us do something about it, rather than praying for some imaginary "jesus" character to save you.

Just who does N. Korea think she is? What right do they have to launch satellites? They're taking away room for more of our spy sats. Dammit we should go to war over it. We need more spy sats. And anyone who else wants to launch satellites have to ask permission first, and pay a hefty tax. Say, 700 billion dollars per sat. Yeah, that sounds good.

Insolent Koreans.

Uh, no, they don't.

Apart from "anonymous sources" parroting around the rumour that N. Korea fitted a live warhead onto this missile, there's no evidence to corroborate it.

These same "anonymous sources" tried to convince most of the US that Iraq had WMD's and we all know how well that turned out to be true.

Stop buying warmongering propaganda and start thinking independently.

So all the chest thumping by Japan & the U.S. especially Japan "If it looks like its heading towards us we will shoot it down" & the same for Lord Obama, was just what it was bloated ego? Thats why we haven't won a war since WW2, we've become pussies. We let people get away with breaking policies that are in place until its too late, & then we get in a conflict with someone entirely different to feel better about ourselves for years. This crazy little Sasquatch head needs to be nipped in the bud before he is a real threat & gets it right. But Nooooooooooooooooo lets not offend anyone & lets not be aggressors in our fight for freedom from fools like him, God forbid we send the wrong message which would be that we actually have a pair.

No.
It's because it's not within your government's best interests to win wars.

The more prolonged a conflict, the more men that die, the more material and equipment that is lost, the more profit for the Military-Industrial Complex.

That as simple as it can be boiled down to really. Big business pull the strings of every President, Republican or Democrat, hell half the Congressmen have shares in Halliburton, ExxonMobil, Lockheed, Northrop, Boeing and Rayethon.

Why do you think they keep approving the use of force with such landslide votes?

Wars make a lot of powerful people A LOT of money.
The Arms Industry in the US rakes in multi-trillion dollar profits yearly, and if the Congressmen and their friends in Office can get a slice of that pie, than they're going to want as much conflict as possible.

The Military-Industrial complex never "loses" a war.

Maybe the President of Japan & Lord Obama will send him a box of chocolates & a sympathy card for his "for now" failure, & invite him over for tea & dinner.

North Korea is not a signatory of any "Satellite Treaty" that restricts how many satellites they can put into orbit.

Nor are they a signatory of the NPT.

So remind me, which "policy" have they broken?

It's the "unsigned, unspoken, unwritten, USA is entitled to whatever it wants at the expense of anyone else no matter what" policy. And, yeah, N. Korea broke it big time.

I think it's time to open a Can of Whoop Ass!

I believe that the main worry was that a Nuke could have been attatched to it. But no matter if they did or didn't break anything, can we afford to be asleep again? Maybe so we have been since WW2 & the only thing that has happened was 9/11. Hell we can stand that again or some nut case firing possible Nukes. Lets just celebrate it & congradulate them on a job well done, we're good at placating people & slapping them on the wrists & telling them "No no" Heres an idea lets just start test firing some of our missles & see what happens. Oh wait, we can't because we're now kinder & gentler.

Or so that was what we were being told. Why would they warn everyone ahead of time if they were going to launch a nuke at someone? Or why would they launch a nuke in a missile test?

Anyhow, I think that if N. Korea really had nukes, and they were really determined to use them, the USA would hit them without anyone knowing about it beforehand.
