Oh, and 500+km (about 300+ miles) is a really good altitude to detonate an EMP. Well, that is if you're not in the same hemisphere, that is.
They could have been misleading everyone into thinking they fail on tests and launching a satellite because that would give them a better position everyone thinking them incapable.

No, space is a BIG place (even just the space around Earth's orbit), and the satellite is only 100kg (about 220lbs). Even if it was a nuke (which it wasn't), it wouldn't have a very big blast radius, likely wouldn't even get another satellite. No way they have a nuke small enough and powerful enough to have gone up in that.....
And certainly they've demonstrated no EMP weapon that could work in such a scenario....edit on 8-4-2013 by Gazrok because: (no reason given)

How about staying on topic and finding a satellite tracking site that might show a five day prediction of KMS 3-2 transits here in the U.S...... www.n2yo.com/ was being used, now it's mysteriously unavailable.

That is what happens at end of that video when a North Korean satellite crosses over U.S.
John Milius writer of Red Dawn also was writer for the game. Great story.

What about all the nuclear plants melting down, with no back-ups and no cooling systems?!?
I think you're underestimating TPTB's willingness to sacrifice N Korea for the greater goal...
