June 17 (Bloomberg) -- North Korea is preparing to launch a long-range missile at a site in the country’s northeast as well as one from a northwest base, the Sankei newspaper reported, without saying where it got the information.

The two missiles are likely to be either standard or upgraded versions of the Taepo Dong-2 rocket, the newspaper reported.


So now it's two missiles to be launched.

We now know China is FIRMLY behind N.K.

It's all a game of cat and mouse, I am now sure.

Well China and Russia are in principle against N.Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile proliferation, as they voted unanimously in the UN. Although they didn't agree to do the searching of North Korean ships, that's going to be left to the US, S.Korea, maybe Japan and rest of NATO.

If you go to the ChinaDaily link, you will see China says no use of force.

Come on, do you think a ship with nuke material will willingly stand down and stop for inspection?

It seems to me that China and to a degree Russia are setting up a war trap for US/NATO/JAPAN/S.K.

It's just a matter of time before N.K pushes too far. I wouldn't be surprised if these two missiles get destroyed sitting on the launch pad.

Kinda sounds like the setting for a porn movie. Two dongs at once.

They just may explode on the launch-pad.

It would make sense to me that China and possibly Russia are backing NK, I believe some super power is, and it's either of those two. If NK continues this BS without backing down and tries to start a war, I guarantee they have one of these countries secretly backing them. I would have normally gone with Russia but I'm beginning to think China is, or maybe both.

The real reason is I believe many people thought that China was sick of kim's antic's.

By reading the link, you see that this simply is not true.

Is China happy about kim's nukes, no.

Will they allow anyone to do anything about it, no.

Egad. Baggy underweard, bare stubby little legs, and wearing his beige jacket comes to mind. Launch the dong... Course, he might need some help. An Iranian chick with a burka standing behind him tying her silk purse strings in knots. Cuz sometimes, you need help launching the dong.

I hate to say it, but China agreeing to sanctions means nothing.
Sanctions are worthless, time wasting and when you applied so many before, whats one more round going to matter?

No, sanctions are simply a charade for China to appear onboard with the west.

Well I don't know about Russia, but China sure is pulling some bizzarre stunts in regards to this current problem.

I mean, they are like that babysitter that only chastises infront of the parents.

BAD North Korea, VERY BAD!

And as soon as everybody has turned their backs, China gives let's them stay up late, eat candy and watch horror films.

This is fundemental problem. We need to figure out where their stance is, the US could fall into a trap. China wants to be #1 and they are in a good position to be if all goes well.

I think NK would be very foolish to launch these missiles, but they will ofcourse since Kimmy has something to prove.

Hopefullly they can just take them off the pad before they are launched, but then again I think the US and Japan are actually scarred of NK.

Why else would they max out the silo's in California and take all these extra precautions if NK doesn't have the capability of being a threat?

I mean, being prepared is a good idea, but being over-prepared means somebody is lying to us.

No update? It's been about 2 days... do we have satellite images showing they are installing the missiles on the launch pads?

Or they will do nothing...

Important dates IMO... June 25. Anniversary of the North Korean invasion of South Korea.
July 4, US declaration of independance.

IMO if they launch it will be one of those two days.
