Kim Has His Own Fireworks
Diplomacy continues it's predictable course of appeasement and failure.
North Korea launched a long-range Taepodong-2 missile and two small Scud-type missiles within a two-hour period, but the long-range missile appears to have failed, a diplomatic source told Reuters on Tuesday.
CNN also reported that a Taepodong had been fired.
The Taepodong 2 missile, which had been under intense scrutiny by the United States and other western powers, appeared to have failed in flight, the diplomatic source said.
It's clear what Kim's intentions are and we negotiate with him at our peril. If a three stage missle becomes workable for N Korea, it would be capable of reaching Chicago. If Kim is allowed to continue testing, it's only a matter of time before the US and it's allies are forced to negotiate from a point of weakness. Kim is already using it's missles as a bargaining chip.
""North Korea would respond to a pre-emptive U.S. military attack with an "annihilating strike and a nuclear war," the state-run media said Monday, heightening anti-U.S. rhetoric amid close scrutiny of its missile program."
America has nothing to gain and much to lose by subitting to Kim's desires to become a Global military threat.
