North Korea is building a missile that is even bigger than the long-range missile it is preparing to launch this month, sources claimed Monday. South Korean and U.S. officials believe the North will unveil the missile at a military parade on April 15, nation founder Kim Il-sung's centenary, or on April 25, which marks the founding day of the North's Army.
A government source here said U.S. reconnaissance satellites recently spotted a 40-m missile at a research and development facility in Pyongyang that is larger than the existing Taepodong-2 missile. "It remains uncertain whether this missile is functional or is just a life-sized mock-up," the official added.
The rocket North Korea is preparing to launch soon is apparently 32 m long, the same as the Taepodong-2 that was launched in April 2009 with a maximum range of 6,700 km. The new missile is believed to be larger and equipped with a bigger booster that gives it a maximum range of more than 10,000 km, making it capable of reaching the continental U.S.

This has been going unchecked for decades.In the early 1960s, international and domestic politics impelled Pyongyang to pursue an indigenous capability to produce advanced weapons systems,including rockets and missiles.It did not go into full swing until the mid 1970s when they started getting Scud missiles.
What the heck are you talking about this is in the here and now blaming anyone but Obama is what is going on now. He’s been President for over Three years and where are we now. Give me a break, Bush is not President!
I think what he is talking about is called the truth.
