Not making any argument here, but I thought this fascinating satellite image might help if anyone browsing the forum was not sure where North Korea was 8-)

I found a video of the whole event:

Anyway, what do you expect when you launch on Friday the 13th?

There are pointy haired bald people.
Time flies when you have a bad prescaler selected.

So why deny that to others?
I sympathize with this view. However, no one is denying NK it's rights to develop nukes and rockets. But despite NK's claims otherwise, the rocket development is aimed at delivering nuclear weapons, which is seen as destabilizing to the region. Thus diplomatic pressure to discourage them.

Don't you wish the people of NK would just rise up and overthrow their brutal regime? But history shows that humans can take a lot of abuse before they mobilize.

BTW: daqq, LMAO.

I like the ending the best.

Clapping for the "Success".

Because we report "success" no matter the outcome!

Me too!

Their technology is inferior- they should have put the launch pad at the top of the hill instead of the bottom to make orbit easier to achieve. Such as it is, if that rocket didn't leave the pad three guesses as to what the other guy with the rifle was going to do 8-)

Tom, I thought that image was just evidence that the "Dear Leader" supported the "Earth hour" movement :lol:
