Default North Korea rocket appears to have broken up

http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/12/world/...html?hpt=hp_t1

aww.

I like this line from the story "North Korea continues it's unblemished track record of failure."

Yep rocket science just doesn't seem to be their thing.

Well, the quote is from an anonymous US official, so perhaps the snide comment is to be expected.

That said, I am cheered by the failure of the rocket. Not only does it undermine the threat of a nuclear attack on the US, but it humiliates the North Korean government during a period of celebration of itself.

Break up or not, it still scares the bleep out of me that they continue to think they will be successful. Because even a blind squirrel gets a nut once in awhile.

What I find intriguing, is that the US will now go ahead with their promise to cut off food supplies to N. Korea. That portly gentleman, who recently took over as their president, or dictator, whatever he's called, could use a new diet plan, but to starve him? Would any of the Democrats here like to weigh in on the morality of making the man starve?



Please don't follow the photo back to it's origins. The article there makes uncharitable comments about the man.

Fear not. That portly "gentleman" will not be denied anything. The proletariat get the best of everything. The more we give North Korea, the more the dear leaders get. At some point one would hope that the citizenry would rise up and oppose this.

The proletariat is the working class, not part of the "dear leaders." You were making fun here, yes?

I hope folks remember the only rockets the US could launchbefore 1960 were the V2s taken from Nazi Germany after WWII. The US developed booster rockets didnít do too well until the US turned over control to all those ex-Naziís. Without them there would have been no moon landing. And furthermore it was our ex-Naziís against the USSRís ex-Naziís at the heart of the space race until a generation of nationals could be trained to take over.
And the space race was a non-explosive way of national governments proving they could launch a payload and have it drop anywhere in the world that they chose, be it a man or a big ol' bomb. Now that BO has effectively killed NASA where will our future ICBM developers come from? The Eurozone maybe?

Why do we need more ICBMs? Haven't we enough as well as the parallel ability to accurately target any place in the world? Overkill, maybe?

Oh the "dear leaders" never starve. The citizens do though.

Kim Jung Il was the single greatest purchaser of Hennesey cognac at one point.

Yesterday had to be a bad day to be a rocket scientist in North Korea.

You are correct. Have and the Soviets have more than enough ICBM's to put anyone (everyone?) in a world of hurt.
