Well Lil Kim is not going to be happy with this..

By Sam Kim SEOUL, July 4 (Yonhap) -- North Korea sought payment through a bank in Malaysia for its suspected shipment of weapons to Myanmar that is being carried on a freighter tracked by the U.S. Navy, a source said Saturday. The visit by a U.S. envoy to Malaysia this weekend will focus on ways to cut off the payment transaction for the cargo from the bank in Malaysia to North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, the source said.

South Korea says that North Korea tested its latest missile at 5:40 PM local time. The 7th of the day

And the seventh. Certainly they're going to run out of daylight here soon. Will they keep firing them into the night?

It's 6pm in Korea, and if you remember the short range missiles from a few days ago, some of them were fired well into the night, past there's every possibility of more.

Also, if they are planning on firing up the big one, I guess they think it will look more spectacular at night as it could then be viewed by thousands as it takes off. Kind of like their own, warped fireworks spectacular.

Further, later tonight will be closer to July 4 US day-time; so I wouldn't be surprised if there is more action in the next few hours.

What does this mean though? Look..North korea is all hyped up about thier nuclear bomb now, and building a very close and soon..missle that will breach intercontinental united states... So why launch to lowsy scud missles??? Makes nO sense unless their testing or trying out some new mechanism maybe.... possibly for this 10,000 kilometer missle. Maybe thier just, well, 'bored'???

So North Korea launches 7 missiles. What will the US, NATO, Japan, China do about it?

Condemn them again!! That will teach them a valuable lesson!

honestly i think obama is handling this situation pretty well by ignoring them.. Im not a big fan of Obama, but he is doing this right. Dont even start a press conference.

Just ignore them. Soon they wont have missiles to fire

Kim is crazy but not crazy enough to attack anything. It's most likely him trying to put himself on the map because lets face it, North Korea isn't exactly a country anyone thinks twice about.

That is the hopefuly situation. The other is that he's sneaking WMD's out of the country and selling them to whomever and using his current missile tests as a diversion.

North Korea has launched more missles in the 6 months of Obama's presidency than in the whole 8 years of George Bush. Is North Korea taking advantage of our weak President to advance their own agenda? How far off the coast of Hawaii does a missle have to land before we respond?

How often will Obama and his weakness be tested before something major happens?
