Default Breaking News: North Korea Launches Rocket

It just happened about 20 minutes ago (approx 2039 ET). No other news yet on its trajectory etc. I bet the Japanese Defense Force is keeping a very close eye on it. According to other news sources the Russians are even on alert ready to shoot the rocket down if it goes haywire. So that is the South Koreans, Japanese, US Navy, and the Russians ready to shoot it out of the sky for their own reasons. This has really stirred up that region.

Here is CNN's breaking news: http://edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/as...ket/index.html

I am eagerly awaiting the results of this launch.

What world leaders don't seem to understand is that it isn't actually a communications satellite or a military warhead.

It's actually a gigantic signal flare for attention.

I highly doubt that Kim Jong Il was just feeling ronery. North Korea has done some incredibly stupid things in the past.

George Friedman compares Politics to chess, in that the grandmaster of chess actually only has a few moves available to him every turn to turn out a favorable outcome, just as a master politician only has a few actions available to him to create a favorable situation.

Using that analogy, if George Bush is Gary Kasparov, the entire Korean Government would be my cat.

Heh, I can't stop thinking about the endgame in any match of DEFCON.

Well, probably is a cry for attention. It's one of the ways North Korea keeps the world watching it is by doing these things.

Actually, forget what I said. You're probably right.

If it was attention, what sort of attention is it and what for?

Probably the pay-us-not-to-do-nuclear-stuff type.
