Norks. In. Spaaaaaaaace

Just in case you had any delusions that the new leader of North korea was any different:

North Korea successfully launched a rocket on Wednesday, boosting the credentials of its new leader and stepping up the threat the isolated and impoverished state poses to opponents.

The rocket, which North Korea says put a weather satellite into orbit, has been labeled by the United States, South Korea and Japan as a test of technology that could one day deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting targets as far away as the continental United States.

At this point, it’s hard to know what else we can do. We’ve tried sanctions and angry letters. We’ve tried negotiations. Military options are likely off the table given China’s proximity and support. I suspect we are developing or now have the ability to shoot down any missiles that threaten us. Other than that, there’s really not a lot.

    Last week there was all this talk about Japan being ready to shoot down ANY missile the Norks dared to put up. What the hell happened? Was someone asleep at the switch or was it all bluster?

    As for what we can and can’t do now…didn’t the ChiComs “accidentally” damage/destroy one of our weather satellites about a years ago? Lasers or some such I believe were involved. Why couldn’t much the same happen to the “weather satellite” of their petulant child?

    BTW, that was a rhetorical question, we all know why no one will do shit.

    Nuke ‘em from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

    Different continents different thoughts, My first thought was a play on “Pigs in Spaaaace”

    How un-muslim of me, actually anti-Semitic all around.
