    A new satellite image shows a marked increase in activity at a North Korean missile launch site

    Maybe they are just building a new shopping mall on the site.

    I don't understand why NK wants to be so rebellious. Do they not realize that the US can blast them completely away in one shot?! Just like a little kid wanting attention!

    Nobody really needs to be concerned. Many NK missiles/sattelites barely make it off the launching pad. They talk a lot better than they 'do'.

    True. They don't even talk that well, either.

    Well I hear NK is rivaling SK with their own launch scheduled on Nov.29th.

    Really this article is lopsided without without mentioning the SK launch as well.

    You have to give credit where credit is due though. The DPRK is the indisputable world leader in the cutting-edge field of underwater satellite launches. Every launch has been a success so far...

    Ms. Alexander: I don't understand why NK wants to be so rebellious.

    NK could join the international community, end their starvation problems as well as a host of other problems, and seriously raise the standard of living for their people. But in order to do that the ones at the very top would have to give up some control, and they ain't gonna do that. Sad state of affairs.

    I guess the dear pudgy leader wants the new year to come in with a bang? Maybe he's feeling ignored because the island disputes are taking the front page away from his hissy fits? Or is he just out of whisky? Whatever, because the poor people in NK will still starve this winter. Some leader.

    Ms. Alexander if the American blow apart the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea it would be a bad thing. Depending on upper air winds Japan would be downwind to a whole lot of fallout. Fukushima level radiation would be consider background in comparison. The Republic of Korea would be lucky as most would go into the sea of Japan and make landfall around Sado Island. Then spreading to Tokyo and over water again. Unkike Fukushima the atomic clouds will go over 20 km into the sky. Of course tommorrow the wind pattern could be different.

    USNin, prefer to think of them as oversize fireworks. We can start a betting pool on when it will blow up with best odds given to achieving orbit.

    not to worry, the "Onion" has just declared the dear pudgy leader the "sexiest man in the world" and the China People's Daily, unable to understand the sarcasm (probably a bad translation) has just re-run the story as real news. I imagine that the loss of face will be enough for a missile launch before Christmas. As if NK has a Santa Claus. Well, they could really use a saviour....

    I agree with Yuri, best to leave the nukes out of this. But a betting pool of date, altitude achieved (negative values allowed) and if any pieces fall on Japan. Who's in?
