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 pretty sure he studied abroad.

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.

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

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

We shouldn't be killing anyone. That's just how they roll.

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...

New ICBM missiles at North Korea parade 'fake'

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.


1. 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.

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

3. 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.

People should attend their propaganda speeches and laugh as if they are at a comedy show when n Korea claims its mightiness and superior military power.
