North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ratcheted up his regime's militaristic rhetoric as Pyongyang threatened to retaliate against any country that intercepts a North Korean rocket booster or collects the rocket debris.
The North has vowed to launch a rocket sometime between April 12 and 16 to put an earth observation satellite into orbit, a move widely seen as a pretext to disguise a banned test of its ballistic missile technology.
The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea in Pyongyang warned that interception of the satellite would be "an act of war" and would cause a tremendous catastrophe.

Guess he is “ronrey” too!
Yes, all very true, but Pyongyang would be obliterated via air power along with any other command and control locations. The North has virtually no air power.
Iran getting closer to the bomb and the most paranoid nuclear-armed nation in the world being run by a 29 year old. Talk about 2012 being the end of the world...
Yea, me too. I've heard South Korea could use some more parking.
The US policy towards chemical and biological weapons is to respond to their deployment with nuclear weapons.
If the Norks use bio/chem then the US will have license to nuke them. It’s also looking like China won’t back them up this time.
Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. That missile may just blow up on its own. If NK can’t confirm a defective missile, then what?
If I were Pres.... I'd have a conversation with some CIA folks. "The accident they are going to have should be on video tape of that "satelite" not getting more than 150' from the earth before it inexpicably blows up."
firing a missile over another country could also be considered an act of war.
In the mid-90’s some 3 million died of starvation. They also stopped distributing the food rations to the masses.
Since then the average NorK citizen knows not to trust the government too much, those who do are more likely to die of starvation. The black market is now a necessity of life.
The Kim regime, and Kim3 is no different, is only in power as long he saves face to his own serfs. Since they tightly control all news and info, nothing that happens will reach those serfs.
Any NK trangression but be met by cruise missiles striking Commie Party, military and government buildings in Pyongyang, TV and radio stations and the palaces. Let the response be something that the serfs can see and silently rejoice in. Let them try and claim a victory when their own buildings are in rubble.
Let them pretend that nothing happened when the only broadcasts on their frequencies are coming from South Korea with the truth!
We don’t need to kill their soldiers, those aren’t the true enemies. The true enemies are the little man/fat boy and the generals. You could collapse that regime so easily in response to any attack, take out those buildings, take out some bridges, let the serfs see how helpless Kim3 and the regime is.

Kim Jong-un grew up attending boarding school in Switzerland.
Could be, but won’t be, and he knows it.Zero certainly isn’t going to nuke anybody.
Analysis shows NKorea near to launch
SEOUL, South Korea North Korea may have moved the first stage of a rocket to a launch stand, indicating it is on schedule for a controversial mid-April launch, according to a new analysis of satellite images.
The rocket isn't visible at the Tongchang-ri site, but an analysis provided to The Associated Press by the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies says evidence suggests the first stage may be in the launch stand’s closed gantry, a support frame, ahead of the launch planned for April 12-16.
That evidence, seen by the institute in satellite photos taken Wednesday, includes an apparent completion of fueling activity, with most of the empty fuel and oxidizer tanks removed from buildings supplying the first stage; a new barricade for vehicles on the road to the pad, indicating higher security; and the removal of objects near the gantry and a clean-up of the launch pad.
True that they have little air power, but I can remember Vietnam. Air power is essential, but it isn’t everything.
This is why we need a laser system that can strike from many miles away, perhaps even orbital. No one would know why their toy went boom.
Unfortunately so would Seoul.
