I agree with you, man.
As far as we know, maybe the rocket did lunche its sattelite and N. Korea just lied, saying it failed, to avoid URSS, Japan and US attacks.
North Korea technicians work at the satellite control room of the space center on the outskirts of Pyongyang on April 11, 2012. North Korea said that the fuelling of a long-range rocket is under way, ahead of the launch scheduled for later this week despite international protests.'We are injecting fuel as we speak. It has started' Paek Chang-Ho, director of the satellite control centre told visiting foreign journalists. North Korea is counting down to the 100th anniversary of its founder's birth Kim Il-Sung on April 15 with top-level meetings and a controversial rocket launch scheduled in coming days to bolster his grandson's credentials. [Note the center earth monitor appears to show a space craft trajectory passing over western North America, capable of surveilling the US's satellite launch facility at Vandenberg AFB, NORAD and Spacecom.]
