Didn't see this posted on here. I believe this will only provide angst to those who want military intervention. My question is where was the missile targeting if it didn't fail. I am anti-war, but I do question the logic of North Korean leaders when the global community is against North Korea from producing such weapons and then demonstrating it publicly for the world to see especially under trade sanctions that have severely hurt their own people. Perhaps North Korea is a much larger threat than Iran.

it was supposedly launching into orbit to monitor north Korea forests or some other BS. But lets be honest, if you had your neighbor armed to the teeth with their american mates waving nukes and sanctions in your face wouldn't you build and test your own rockets? or does me saying this make me a commie?

What you're saying is definitely logical. It's still really really funny though.
Hey, maybe next century North Korea!

I don't think it "failed". Probably more like a beam weapon was used to make it look like it failed, and that with the level of tech in North Korea, they will believe it failed, thereby creating doubt and a reassessment of their situation.

And actually, it's even funnier if the U.S. blew it up, meanwhile North Korea is firing all their scientists thinking they messed up.

North Korea failed on their first satellite launch. Why is it such a big issue? The US failed miserably in it's first attempt to launch a satellite too, and if memory serves me correctly, our rocket didn't even clear the launch pad.

Like it or not, other countries have the right to put junk into orbit just as we do. Fact is, we not only put junk in space, but we test fire offensive missiles as well.

I think a more appropriate statement is that North Korea poses a bigger potential threat than Iran because it does have nuclear weapons, however I'd dare say that the US is the biggest threat to the region, not North Korea.

If the US was sincere in diffusing the problems on the Korean peninsula, we should establish and encourage diplomatic relations between our countries rather than play this "I'm not talking to you" game and relying on a Swedish intermediary.

I dont think anybody made it a big issue. But it is newsworthy, and it is really funny.

I agree and disagree, and no it doesn't make you a commie.

Didn't think of that.

NK has all the right to shoot rockets willy nilly. Why do we get to hog all the technology? We're probably more militarily aggressive than any other country. (U.S)

maybe the U.S. used it to test the new laser weapon deployed on one of their cruisers. who would know if it fell into the sea, nothing like real world and real time military weapon testing
