North Korea 'fires missile from submarine'

Source: BBC



North Korea has fired a submarine-based ballistic missile, South Korea's Yonhap news agency says.

The reported test follows an attempted launch last month that South Korea said failed in its initial flight stage.

North Korea, believed to be developing nuclear weapons, is banned by the UN from any use of ballistic missiles.

The latest launch comes after Pyongyang threatened retaliation for joint US-South Korea military exercises that it sees as a rehearsal for invasion.

Remember when people made fun of Bernie when he called out NK as a threat?

2. Also see: N. Korea threatens pre-emptive nuke strike over Seoul's military drill

 

North Korea on Monday threatened to mount a "preemptive nuclear strike" on South Korea and the United States as the allies kicked off their annual military exercise aimed at countering Pyongyang's potential aggression.

The command and control exercise Ulchi Freedom Guardian, began its two-week run on Monday, involving tens of thousands of South Korean and U.S. forces.

This year's drill came amid unusually heightened inter-Korean tensions following the defection of a London-based North Korean senior diplomat to South Korea.

South Korea and the U.S. "should bear in mind that if they show the slightest sign of aggression on (DPRK's) inviolable land, seas and air ..., it would turn the stronghold of provocation into a heap of ashes through Korean-style preemptive nuclear strike," an English-language statement by the country's General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA), carried by the state-run Korean Central News agency, said.

7. Bolton the walrus must be pleased with himself.

It was thanks to Dubya's sabre rattling, after all, that North Korea abandoned the 1994 Agreed Framework Jimmy Carter negotiated with the late Kim Jong Il.

Their facilities were under constant UN surveillance for a decade, and in all that time nothing moved - until Lil' Kim tore up the agreement.

The MIC has been ecstatic about the possibility of all-out war with North Korea ever since.

16. The Shrub would have too, and was about to do so in '06 hoping to stave off a mid-term 'thumping'.

But Iran's Russian-supplied anti-aircraft defenses simply made it impractical (thank goodness).

27. Actually, they had none and their nuclear program was mothballed. But that changed.

 

Bill Clinton, working with the UN, got NK to stop production of any more nuclear materials and shut down the program. They had no bomb and were a few years away from having one. In the summer of 2001, Bush reneged on the part of the agreement that allowed NK to import much more food from the US. Within a year, NK had restarted their nuclear program. In about 3-4 more years, they detonated their first nuclear bomb.

Won the Pulitzer Prize. It shows how ugly and scary it is to live in North Korea. If any country "deserves" invasion and nation-building, it would be North Korea, imo.

But that never turns out well, no matter what, does it?

North Korea's Kim declares sub-launched missile 'greatest success': KCNA

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised a test-fire of a submarine-launched ballistic missile and declared it "the greatest success" that put the country in the "front rank" of nuclear military powers, official media reported on Thursday.

North Korea fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) on Wednesday which flew about 500 kilometers (300 miles). The South Korean government and experts said the launch showed technical progress in the North's SLBM program.

The ghost ships washing up in Japan leads credence to the thinking their fisheries are gone. Those feeble boats are going out well beyond their means.
