Japanese technology 'helped launch North Korean rocket'
Japanese technology may have helped North Korea launch what it claims was a satellite delivery vehicle on Sunday, according to defence analysts in Japan and the United States.
The revelation will come as an embarrassment to the Japanese government, which has called on the international community to unite and impose severe sanctions on Pyongyang in retaliation for the launch.
Japan, South Korea and the United States believe the launch was a cover for a rocket that can be used to deliver a nuclear warhead.

Seriously, where can one find anything that uses microelectronic circuitry that does not contain Japanese technology?
