U.S. calls for "most appropriate and strong response" to DPRK rocket launch

WASHINGTON, April 5 (Xinhua) -- U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said Sunday the United States expects the UN Security Council to take "the most appropriate and strong response" to the missile launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

"The U.S. is working very closely with Japan," Rice told ABC television, hours before the UN Security Council holds an emergency session to discuss the DPRK rocket launch.

"We will be in consultation with our partners inside the Council trying to get the most appropriate and strong response we can possibly get," she said of the disputed launch.

The DPRK official media reported Sunday it has successfully launched a rocket carrying a communications satellite, while South Korean and Russian news agencies also said it was a satellite launch.

What can they really do to North Korea? Starve its people further. I know its the North's fault its people live in such poor conditions, but what can we really do but cut off food and oil aid. This just makes it harder for the North Korean people, who are brainwashed into thinking the Great Leader is fighting for them, when in reality its him starving and oppressing them.

Guess sanctions of some kind are on the way.

Other than issuing another STRONGLY-WORDED RESOLUTION WITH HINTS OF IMPLICATIONS (you know, in bold and with a bigger font--hell, maybe even use italics), condemning the North Korean missile launch coupled with political blustering, nothing will be done.

+1 for Kim Jong-il
-1 for the Obama adminstration.

Did you add anything remotely to this discussion or did you just feel the need to rant and spout your brand of anti-Americanism?

Good grief.

Something must be done about these constant, failed missile launches people!

Do you realise after the 500th attempt they may actually develop a working ICBM?

And that could very well be within our lifetime!
Do you want your retirement holiday ruined at the age of 87 when North Korea finally develops a Tapeo-Dong missile that can travel for more than 30 seconds without failing?

I don't think so....

Let's kill the snake just because it looks dangerous. Absolutely infallible logic.

I mean it worked for Iraq. Look at all the WMD's we found there.

Surely the United States must be right once again when it claims another rogue state is developing Nuclear weaponry.

If we were "right" about Iraq and "right" about Iran, why would we be wrong this time?

more or less it might have turned in to a rant in shere dissapointment ,

the news in it self is absurd if not even off topic , note im not talking about the OP but in general ,

out of all the news sources ive read probobly 2 didnt have this news statement on their front page or "page 4 "

anyways, its absurd because one country with its populus living in tents and jacked up on the so called dream of freedom is barking at another country with its people living in sheds that´s jacked up on the same dream , .

but to be on topic , what can the u.s do beside constanty threat or being on the brink of applying constant threats ,

i guess nothing but help if thats what the U.S realy wants to do,

but with the progress so far it seams like a very bleak idea ,

one thing they could do is aid in the building of the hotel in the capital city and get the money rolling in with tourism ,

a second thing they could do allow the Nuclear energy program to be finished so that they can power up the hotel and the rest of its country,

i dont know, ipods?

food for thought aint always food for stomach

instead of oppressing the nation wouldent it just be easier to give em the chance for atleast some sort of decency in life and mabye a shot at a so called functioning republic.

heck homeless people in the U.S have more of a chance to obtain wealth then a NK citizen , or do they ......

give em a brake , worst case senario for kim´s sucsessor would be that they want to plant a flag on the moon.

worst case senario for kim´s regime is that the flag holds kims picture instead of the national flag.

I have to agree, this is absurd. North Korea has done this and similar things for too long now. Let them constantly rattle their sabre and threaten war with the South Korea, Japan, and the US. They should be ignored by the world at large, cut off from all assistance and left to rot. If they want to go to war, the above nations should make it clear that the North Korean regime will be destroyed by any means necessary.

Are we always going to have to give concessions to NK because they like to act like a bully and threaten war every 6 months if they aren't given what they want. Its time to call North Korea's bluff and put a end to this half century of threats and lies from the North's regime.
