Three interceptor ships near Japan and the Philippines, as well as U.S.-based interceptors, are ready to shoot down the North Korean missile if space-, land-, and sea-based sensors determine its flight path is targeted at the United States or U.S. allies, said officials who spoke on condition of anonymity
The Obama administration will regard any launch by North Korea as a violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions regardless of whether the North Koreans claim the rocket test is for space launch purposes, the officials said.
Satellite images published Monday show preparations for the launch are continuing.
“We expressed our concern,” Panetta said of the upcoming launch. “The president of the United States made very clear that the North Koreans should not do this. It is provocative. It’s dangerous and it violates the international law. And so our hope is that they will not do it. But as always takes place in these kinds of situations, we have to be fully prepared for any possibility—and we are.”

Seen these stories time and time again since the Koreans first detonated a bomb.
Same old same old with nothing coming of it if you ask me. Was hoping the new ruler would have allowed diplomacy a chance and actually try and feed his people, but obviously not. The sad fact is, North Koreas starving masses could easily be fed if some funding was redirected away from the military towards agricultural development.
