    Little is known about where it's headed, but I just heard a news blurb about 30 seconds ago confirming the missile has been launched.

    EDIT: I just realized that the post below me is about it.

    All three missles blew up upon launch. One of them landed in the Japan Sea I think. Japan has said previously that they condemn the tests and will be putting sanctions on North Korea.

    NK isnt really communist though. Its closer to an absolute monarchy.

    But anyhoo, I dont really think this is anything to worry about. If Kim Jong Il nuked anywhere the whole of North Korea would be a smoking wasteland in a matter of minutes. Kim is a dictator - he's concerned with maintaining power, and getting his country wiped off the face of the earth would be counterproductive for him.

    I saw something on the ABC a while back about NK, some smuggled in phones and a radio to the people but was caught. He was promptly shot; in frount of the whole village with another man that was randomly picked from the crowd...

    The whole thing was filmed by a secret cammera, that man risking his life to get the footage. NK is a country surrounded yet it's lower class still live in the 1940's

    10 missles launched, Taepodong-2 was self-detonated and landed in the East Sea. Other missles landed in a 100 km radius.

    Damned sonic booms :/


    They didn't fail in showing the world that they can shoot missles whenever they want, and they have the 5th best missle tech in the world.

    I hate the current administration. If it was a normal one, they'd have stopped all support going to North Korea and massed the troops on the border.


    But no, they're having a meeting right now on how much money they're going to give the northern scarecrows. I wish the elections would come early so that the GNP can get 80% of the votes like they did in may and blast the commies back to the stone age.

    Nooo. Thats exactly what they should have done. Except that NK has about 160 times better and more military than Hussein did..... (and 4 times more active soldiers than the US and 8 million reserves, 2 times more soldiers than SK)

    I mean, ZOMG, they're really gonna do it!

    Not to mention, when I read the thread title, the first thing that went through my mind was "omfg who did they shoot it off at?"

    Yes

    Imagine the scenarios when an entire nation is completely brainwashed against you. The casualties would be astronomical and nukes would be required.

    If the US used nukes in this peninsula, SK will go to war with it. (The ROK constitution says that all of the peninsula is ours)

    :O

    I don't think ANY country is dumb enough to actually use thier nukes on another country.

    Except for maybe NK.

    And even then, it's more BAT**** INSANE! than "dumb".

    my theory is that they're launching missles so that when the real thing comes we would think "Oh, another stupid test" and get bombed without warning.

    "Hey Felicity, what do you think that big bolt of light heading towards the old Anchorage Memorial is?"

    "Oh, Korea is just testing out another nuke!"

    "HMM, wonder where THIS one is gonna land!"

    All of the missles took different paths, but landed mostly in the same position, especially the last 3.

    Tokyo condems North Korea over missiles
    NZ "
    China "
    USA "
    World... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2006/07/05/ukorea.xml

    Out of intrest, does anyone know what sort of damage those missiles do?

    Few more recent articles:
    NK has nuclear missile capabilities to take on US:
