More N. Korean Long-Range Rocket Launches Expected 'Soon'
July 31, 2013
TOKYO Specialists following North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile development concur the reclusive state is nearly certain to continue launching long-range rockets which may be intended to improve its capability to fire weapons of mass destruction.

NK feels they lost face after the ski resort thing
a) DPRK launch of Unha (disguised in their press as a satellite) ICBM rocket targeting US territory. They may also have multiple intermediate launches of Scud/Nodongs into the Sea of Japan to threaten both Japan and US bases in Japan.
b) Carter arrives in Pyongyang to cool down tensions.

e) The US and world Mass Media will somehow again declare this as a "victory" of some sort, a win-win, when in fact it will be another humiliation of the Greatest Nation on the Face of the Earth by a starving, piss-poor third world backwater who has given us 60 years worth of guff.

How’d that work out??
Obama says “unless there’s a dong in it, don’t bother me”
SK recently said it would donate several $millions in aid...
Will they ever learn ?
Tell them go ahead, good luck with that. Then lets park an AEGIS cruiser with the BMD upgrades in the sea of Japan with a dozen or so SM3s in her magazines. See what happens. Practice is always good, and dummy/targrt missiles are expensive. If NK will provide them ...
$10M won’t even cover Kim Jong-eun’s food and drink tab
Same State Department people involved in that nonsense still serving in office.
Maybe he want chat with MATT DAMONNNNN
That’s what I was thinking: this is a good opportunity for target practice.
