North Korea Crazy Antics

This regime is downright scary. Let's see they:
Call then press in from all over the world
Try to launch a rocket that has done NOTHING but fail
Wants to brag about it but can't because it fell in the ocean
The press that is there knows about it before 99% of them
They have no backup plan on what to tell them should it fail

All I can say is WOW. Now they are embarrased and who knows what they may try next with this 29 yo nut job. Maybe if they start trying to duct tape a nuclear warhead on this "missle" they will blow themselves up and we will not have to worry about it.

One could hope that it blows up right over their central gov...

unfortunately for us...a simple EMP effect will do no good as no one will be able to tell it occurred.

They can't launch a satellite into space. We better wipe em off the face of the earth.

I don't know why I thought they would get some act right when Kim Jung il died and his son took over. Looks like they are on the same path as they always have been.

Perhaps my favorite North Korea moment of recent memory is when they lost to Brazil 4-1 in the World Cup but only showed their citizens the NK goal and then told them that they won.

I'm pretty sure this started out as an onion article making fun of that

[b]Pyongyang, North Korea: State television announces the Democratic People’s R[/b][b]epublic of Korea’s great 50-0 victory over Brazil in their opening game of the 2010 World Cup.[/b]
Fifty goals, 49 of them scored before half-time, were all that separated Brazil from the mighty North Korea in yesterdays match according to Korean Central Television.
The hapless Brazilians, many of them probably American spies, never stood a chance when following a goalless opening five minutes the North Koreans bought on their star substitute – none other than the supreme Dear Leader and worlds most respected man Kim Jong-Il himself.

As the Supreme Leader of North Korea and worlds best Astronaut appeared on the touch-line lacing up his boots, the crowd fell silent in anticipation – the whole world held its breath then erupted into cheers and applause as the substitution was made. Five of North Korea’s squad were substituted for the one Kim Jong-Il; at the Dear Leaders own insistence, in order to give the Brazilians a fighting chance.

It took just one second for the sprightly and trim 69 year old leader to open the scoring with his trademark overhead bicycle kick – the move he invented himself in 1944 when he was just 3 years old. It was quite simply the greatest goal the world had ever seen, especially as the shot was struck whilst clearing the ball off his own goal-line – the shot travelling over 100 metres and still rising as it went through the back of Brazilians net. The ball is yet to be found and is believed to have left Earth’s Orbit.

The match had to be stopped for a full 2 hours as the players on both teams, and the match officials could not stop applauding, all of them crying tears of respect and admiration.
Before the restart the Dear Leader proclaimed the Centre Line a Demilitarised Zone and promised the stunned Brazilians they would never cross it – and henceforth they didn’t. All the football was played in the Brazilian half with the Latin Americans too busy wiping tears of admiration from their eyes and applauding Kim Jong-Il’s sublime skill to mount much of a defence.

Players from both sides could only stand and admire as goal after goal rained in, each as spectacular as the first. As the half-time whistle blew the score was a world record breaking 49-0, all of the goals scored single-handedly by Kim Jong-Il alone; as if that wasn’t spectacular enough all but the first ten goals were scored with the Dear Leader Blindfolded.

As the half-time whistle blew the exhausted players of both sides left the field crying tears of joy and reverence, all except the bespectacled supreme leader himself who remained in the centre-circle performing one-handed press-ups to the cheers of the adoring crowd, during the 15 minute break the North Korean leader beat his own world record.[/quote]

They could be followers of Harold Camping, but doesn't change the fact they're backwards ass morons set in the 40s and using threats that could impact the region. Our rocket failed...ok...we test nuke then.

I would love nothing more than the world to get back on their feet and take some responsibility for the relative calm we have on this earth. We haven't had world war scale battles since. We, Americans, basically are subsidizing the entire world's stability and get no respect for that. Let's just let China, India, Pakistan, Euros, and Russians step up and do some damned work for once. Who's with me.

But weren't we praising our advances in NK just recently? I'm talking months maybe.

There was an agreement that we'd give them food aid if they stopped their actions. They launched the rocket, it failed, the US has now said the food aid deal is off and they won't be getting anything from us. North Korea V. USA in a nutshell for as long as I can remember.

This rocket falling into the sea was a good thing. The young ruler is 29. That is an impressionable age. He probably grew up surrounded by his father's rhetoric about how advanced N Korea was, and how they had the best military in the world...blah blah.

This incident has the potential for him to realize that his father's goals were unrealistic, and that maybe he should come up with a new perspective.

I doubt it, but there is a chance.

I'm sure he's well aware that NK is a shitty place to live for the average citizen. He's living the high life though, so it doesn't really matter for him.

I wonder if they killed the scientist in charge of the rocket program?

If not I'm sure the US will handle it for them.

Why should we kill him? He's more dangerous alive evidently.

He said "they" kill him.

As in NK killing off their own scientist...and probably feed him to their military.

And in the latest embarrassing news for North Korea...

[quote][size=5]New ICBM missiles at North Korea parade 'fake'[/size]

Earlier this month at a parade in Pyongyang, the North Korean authorities caught the attention of a number of western experts by displaying what appeared to be six road-mobile inter-continental ballistic missiles. It was the first time that this system had been seen in public and it appeared to mark yet another step forward in North Korea's ambitious missile development programme.

But now, after a careful study of pictures from the parade, a team of German arms experts thinks the missiles are not quite what they seem.

Attention has switched back to the missiles themselves, for, after a careful study of images from the parade, two German missile experts, Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker, have published a paper suggesting that the North Korean missiles are fakes - elaborate mock-ups and not the real thing.

Markus Schiller explained why the North Korean parade had aroused his suspicions.
"If you take a close look at the displayed missiles," he said, "there are many details that are plainly wrong, indicating that there might be something wrong with the whole programme.


[b]1.[/b] The markings on each of the missiles are different. Some possibly show filling or draining valves for liquid propellant - inconsistent with other design features that suggest a solid fuelled system.

[b]2. [/b]The missiles are not perfectly aligned to the launch table. This suggests it is hard to bolt the missile down in launch configuration.

[b]3.[/b] Undulations in the surface metal of the warhead suggest thin sheeting over stringers or formers (supports) unlike the more substantial construction required of a real warhead.

His conclusion: The missiles paraded by the North Koreans were mock-ups and for now at least, Pyongyang does not have a functioning intercontinental ballistic missile.
