It's not a rocket if it can't fly...more like an expensive, self propelled dart.

NK will try to use this failure to secure more aid from the west. "We won't launch another one if you give us what we want" ..........MGC

Here they go again! Yes,another atempt to launch a rocket.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/50039910/ns ... nce-space/

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea announced Saturday that it would attempt to launch a long-range rocket in mid-December, a defiant move coming just eight months after a failed April bid that was widely condemned as a violation of a U.N. ban against developing nuclear and missile programs.

The launch, set for Dec. 10 to 22, is likely to heighten already strained tensions with Washington and Seoul as the United States prepares for Barack Obama's second term as U.S. president and South Korea holds its own presidential election on Dec. 19.

This would be North Korea's second launch attempt under leader Kim Jong Un, who took power following his father Kim Jong Il's death nearly a year ago. The announcement by North Korea's space agency followed speculation overseas about stepped-up activity at North Korea's west coast launch pad captured in satellite imagery.

A spokesman for North Korea's Korean Committee for Space Technology said scientists have "analyzed the mistakes" made in the failed April launch and improved the precision of its Unha rocket and Kwangmyongsong satellite, according to the official Korean Central News Agency.

More sabre rattling imo. Another failure would not surprise me. IMO, the launch will be Dec. 19 for obvious reasons.

North Korea launches rocket

Well,they launched it but let's see if it was a success or not.

North Korea Launches Rocket in Defiance of Critics

Isolated and impoverished North Korea launched its second long- range rocket of 2012 on Wednesday and may have finally succeeded in putting a satellite into space, the stated aim of what critics say is a disguised ballistic missile test.

The rocket was launched just before 10 a.m. Korean time (0100 GMT) and overflew the Japanese island of Okinawa. Its April rocket launch was aborted after less than two minutes flight.

Both South Korea and Japan called meetings of their top security councils after the launch. Japanese television station NHK said the second stage of the rocket had crashed into seas off the Philippines as planned.

It was not immediately clear if the third stage carrying the satellite had made it into space.

There was no immediate annoucement from North Korea on the launch. It made a formal announcement when the April launch had failed, but has previously claimed that it put a satellite into space in 2009, something no one has been able to verify.

Well, so much for my prediction of the date. I have seen at least one post that said it failed but nothing I could confirm anything from.

Now what is the question after the launch was a success.

North Korea conducts a Nuclear Test

Now let's see what happens next.

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/02/11/world ... ?hpt=hp_t1

Hong Kong (CNN) -- North Korea said Tuesday that it had conducted a new, more powerful underground nuclear test using more sophisticated technology, jolting the already fragile security situation in Northeast Asia and drawing condemnation from around the globe.

It is the first nuclear test carried out under the North's young leader, Kim Jong Un, who appears to be sticking closely to his father's policy of building up the isolated state's military deterrent to keep its foes at bay, shrugging off the resulting international condemnation and sanctions.

Although Pyongyang had announced plans for the test in recent, vitriolic statements, its decision to go ahead with it provided a stark reminder of a seemingly intractable foreign policy challenge for President Barack Obama ahead of his State of the Union address later Tuesday.

The test was designed "to defend the country's security and sovereignty in the face of the ferocious hostile act of the U.S.," the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said, referring to new U.S.-led sanctions on Pyongyang in the wake of a recent long-range rocket launch.

But in all seriousness it was a messed up move by North Korea. Check this link out below. 5.1M from the USGS registered, stating now about 6-7 kiloton bomb, a full explosion is thought to be 10 but ya.

The reason why NK scares me though more than Iran or any other nation. There poor, other countries with a big military are that wealthy guy that has a lot of guns, but really dosent use it.

NK is that homeless guy with a gun and needs to shoot you to get some money for food. Since many of its people are starving. Thats what scares me.

North Korea threats the U.S

Things are heating up again.

The United Nations Security Council slapped new sanctions on North Korea over its latest nuclear test hours after Pyongyang threatened to exercise its "right to a pre-emptive nuclear attack" Thursday.

"Now that the U.S. is set to light a fuse for a nuclear war, the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will exercise the right to a pre-emptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors and to defend the supreme interests of the country," the North's foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency. "The U.S. is massively deploying armed forces for aggression, including nuclear carrier task force and strategic bombers, enough to fight a nuclear war under the smokescreen of 'annual drills'."

Per the official state run media in NK, NK canceled the cease fire agreement today, and cut a telephone line between NK/SK, and has been threatening to conduct gorilla warfare along the border.

Sorry, I don't have a link, just something I heard on Fox News. So here's the question...more scare tactics, or is full scale war about to break out in the Koreas?

Here's the link:

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korean state media said Monday that Pyongyang had carried through with a threat to cancel the 60-year-old armistice that ended the Korean War, as it and South Korea staged dueling war games amid threatening rhetoric that has risen to the highest level since North Korea rained artillery shells on a South Korean island in 2010.

They have been a war of words every time things heat up when a nuclear test occurs. But the big difference this time is that they may miscalculate and do things that may be very bad and then the worse case scenario occurs. Let's see what happens this time.

They have talked and talked and talked in the past about threats but I sense something different this time around. Maybe is the new leader they have or other things but really things are heating up.

http://edition.cnn.com/2013/03/27/world ... a-threats/

Yeonpyeong Island, South Korea (CNN) -- North Korea said Wednesday it was cutting off a key military hotline with South Korea amid high tensions between the two sides.

"Under the situation where a war may break out any moment, there is no need to keep north-south military communications," the head of a North Korean delegation told the South by telephone Wednesday, according to the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency.

The North linked the move to annual joint military exercises by South Korea and the United States, which it has cited in a string of threats against the two countries in recent weeks. Tougher sanctions approved by the U.N. Security Council have also fueled its anger.

There are several hotlines between North and South Korea. Earlier this month, Pyongyang disconnected a humanitarian hotline that ran through the border village of Panmunjom, according to the South Korean Unification Ministry.

Unless the US has been spouting only hot air, NK knows what will happen if they begin warfare, especially if it is Nuclear. As my Godson, a marine, said as things were heating up with Iran, "Can you say parking lot?".
