It seems to me that this whole event unfolded right into the US / UN's hands to test their icbm defence net.
just a thought...
All the best,
North Korea Says It Successfully Launched Satellite
Following is a full text of the English-language report on North Korea's KCNA news agency on Sunday saying the communist state had successfully put a satellite into orbit:
"Scientists and technicians of the DPRK (North Korea) have succeeded in putting satellite Kwangmyongsong-2, an experimental communications satellite, into orbit by means of carrier rocket Unha-2 under the state's long-term plan for the development of outer space.
"Unha-2, which was launched at the Tonghae Satellite Launching Ground in Hwadae County, North Hamgyong Province at 11:20 (0220 GMT) on April 5, accurately put Kwangmyongsong-2 into its orbit at 11:29:02, nine minutes and two seconds after its launch.
The satellite is going round the earth along its elliptic orbit at the angle of inclination of 40.6 degrees at 490 km perigee and 1,426 km apogee. Its cycle is 104 minutes and 12 seconds.
"Mounted on the satellite are necessary measuring devices and communications apparatuses.

The only problem with NK doing this is that they proved it could be done without the finances of the global bank cartel being involved.
They will be punished, I'm sure.

First of all, this article says that Russia says that it was a successful launch of a satellite:
So who are we going to believe, the West or the East?? I've been tortured enough by the "West" here in America that I find it hard not to like the "East" better.

Looks like we now have the latest conspiracy
Was this all already agreed to prior to the launch....
Someone knows, and it isn't me
There was no launch!
Please excuse my ignorance but my eyes don't deceive me. I'm getting a spoonful of info of what the missile looked like at the launch site, what it could have been, that it was successful, no it wasn't, a false launch report from japan, all being described to us via media from the political goons.
But yet no evidence of the launch itself ( no images of it in flight, video of it in flight, etc). I understand that NK is a poor country , NK being closed off and that it isn't technology central but flying near Japan and still nothing caught on camera? On a good day for a launch in the middle of the day...
We get college shootings caught on cell phones, Iran's satellite launch on video, volcanoes erupting in the middle of the ocean and everything in-between on video or camera.
We had like a 2months heads up.
And now they're claiming that the payload fell into the ocean and U.N. and U.S. are retrieving the debris. I can't keep up with their stories. You know when you're lying you're stories change.
Once again please excuse my ignorance and be so kind to refer me to some cited sources.
I say the US should retrieve the "Satellite" and then formally return it to North Korea with a note that states...
"We Said NO! and that means NO!"
It's great to have the freedom to express your opinion isn't it?
