North Korea launches missile

North Korea has quite a long history of becoming antagonistic whenever it wants money from the free world. They push everyone's buttons because they want cash to stay afloat. Usually the free world caves in and gives them money and they go away for a while. At some point they will probably push the wrong buttons and you might see a war, but, until then, this is the game they play.

Saw on Geraldo :thumbup: that there are reports of a new satellite - which is what the NorKos are saying they launched. But of course no on in the free world believes a word they say, so...

Also reported that Japan is saying they'll shoot down any "debris."

Can't they tell right away by how it took off?

Yes, but CNN wouldn't get the viral effect of traffic to their news story if it had just said North Korea launched a satelite rocket. Referring to it as a missile with an unknown payload has that fear factor that can make the news story go viral. Hence the creation of this thread.

And CNN was the only news outlet covering this right. :D

Newt: I would've disabled missile

By MIKE ALLEN | 4/5/09 9:40 AM EDT Text Size:

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told “Fox News Sunday” that he would have disabled the long-range missile before North Korea launched it, saying too many people “do not appreciate the scale of the threat that is evolving on the planet.”

“One morning, just like 9/11, there’s going to be a disaster,” Gingrich said. “I have yet to see the United Nations do anything effective with either Iran or North Korea.”

Reacting to President Barack Obama’s speech in Prague, Gingrich called the plan for a Global Summit on Nuclear Security a “wonderful fantasy idea,” saying Russia and other nations can’t be trusted.

“What are they going to promise, and why would we believe them?” Gingrich said. “It’s very dangerous to have a fantasy foreign policy, and it can get you in enormous trouble.”

Host Chris Wallace asked Gingrich: “So you’re saying that President Gingrich would have taken out that” missile?

Gingrich replied: “There are three or four techniques that could have been used, from unconventional forces to standoff capabilities, to say: ‘We’re not going to tolerate a North Korean missile launch, period.’ I mean, the world’s either got to decide that North Korea is utterly dangerous … I’d recommend, look at electromagnetic pulse, which changes every … equation about how risky these weapons are.”

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, appearing with Gingrich, said: “In the countryside of South Carolina, at some point, you’ve got to back up words with action. … There have been a long series of … intentional steps on North Korea’s part, and little in the way of actions from the standpoint of either America or the international community.”
