**N. KOREA UNVEILS NEW INTERMEDIATE RANGE NUKE MISSILE; CAN HIT U.S. TARGETS (PARADE TODAY)***
Chosun Ilbo, SBS TV, Japanese NNN TV ^ | 9 September 2003 | AmericanInTokyo

Posted on 09/08/2003 2:01:07 PM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

5:00 p.m. Monday (9/8) Eastern Time

It is now 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, September 9, 2003 in Pyongyang, North Korea. Under rainy skies and with a current temperature of 70 degrees F, 95% humidity, slight breeze, with expected thunderstorms today in Pyongyang. Many FReepers and others are taking close note of today. Sunrise will occur in 12 minutes. And then, within a few hours, something rather noteworthy, historic and perhaps stunning is expected in the capital of the D.P.R.K. (North Korea).

SBS-TV (S. Korea) today has obtained photographs of a new and provocative 15.5 meter-tall Nodong version missile, capable of attacking the United States military forces in Japan, Okinawa and Guam and with a range of over 3000 kilometers, and now, along with others in place at nearly 200 locations in North Korea, many aimed at Japanese cities and American forces in Japan (37,000 personnel).

It is also reported that before the day is out, North Korea may launch a solid rocket in missile testing, to herald it's founding anniversary. The US, Japan and South Korea are watching closely.

Photos (above) are of the No-dong missile before and after being loaded on mobile launcher transport (wheeled vehicle).

It is expected that within a few hours, in the morning hours in Pyongyang, the new No-dong long-range missile will be rolled through Kim Il-Sung square for the first time, at a massive North Korean military parade (the largest in 10 years) on the occasion of the 55th anniversary of the founding of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea.

Delighted dictator Kim Jong-il is expected to salute from the dais.

I'd bet good money we can hit North Korean targets better than North Korea can hit American targets...

Remember back in 1998, when NKorea tested it's first ICBM, and duped Clinton by telling him that NKorea had decided to get into the satellite business?

"duped Clinton"

I'm not sure that's quite the description... Billy Jeff was AT MOST willfully blind, if not accessory to the crime.

Only thing is, official USA and foreign sigint, as well as amateur radio enthusiasts around the world who follow satellites, confirmed their lies, as no one could find the damn thing on the air in 1998 after lift off. Reason: It had already fallen into the sea after transversing Japan. (Kwangmyungsung missile). So much for suborbital and orbital satellites for 'peaceful'
purposes. Nope, this is all for one larger, grand purpose. International nuclear blackmail, thanks to deceived previous administrations and a powerless international community.

The North Koreans may have a nuclear missile but they have a definite marketing problem with the "No-Dong" missile. It just ain't manly enough.

What an opportunity for a decapitation strike. L'il Kim *and* the senior military, *and* their new nuke missile - poof! We could even blame the resulting explosion on the NK warhead. Those things are tricky to build, y'know.

Yep. I feel so sorry for Bush (and us) because Clinton has left soooo many landminds behind to defuse. Clintons true legacy will no doubt damn the next 5 generations or more to more of this kind of stuff, too.
If Clintons not the antiChrist - "the man of desolation, the man of sin" - I don't know who is!

Lets see AIT....

We had the cryptic announcement of a September 9 deadline for North korea to declare itself a nuclear state and possibly commence nuclear testing a month or so back,

and

Now a "new" 2500 mile missile ( the Taepodong II and TaepodongIII have been known to US intelligence for a while, but their operational status wasnt known)

and now:

A huge Soviet style military parade to show off all their wares.



I predict an announcement about NK being a nuclear state, a missile test, and possible nuclear testing within short order. God help us, we need to smakc these termites before they eat our house up.

This was one of the biggest jokes:

"Major Events Around the Korean Peninsula (December 1, 1998 ~ February 20, 1999) December 1: North Korean scientists and technicians were decorated with a medal for the successful launching of the Kwangmyongsung-I satellite into orbit, the KCBS reports."

they are truly expending the ammo that is in their public relations magazine clips these days Kim Jong il was emboldened in the November 02 to February 03 period because he thought we were over-preoccupied with Iraq, then he shut the STFU realllll quick-like, for three months as we decapitated the Iraqi leadership (went underground near Mt. Paektu near the DPRK-China border to his hardened bunker in fact, for 50 days like a rate), now he is emboldened again for the first reason: he sees we are burdened with Iraq and ovestretched. there is clearly a cause and effect to these behaviors, imho

as the thread originator (and I know this might generate a flame or two) but at any any rate, i wish to say respectfully, the 5th-grade jokes about the DPRK missile name (har har har) is about five years old on FR; well, maybe you are new to it, but really, we've heard all the jokes about it and its getting really really old. thanks). :-)

Then again, just remember that some folks (not me) think that 'lil Kim is all hat and No Dong...

(I get what you're saying, and generally agree. But it just sort of popped in there, and when a bad pun gets into my noggin, it's hard to let go of... I won't pun again about the missle nomenclature again, I promise.)

Their left wing type economy is so bad over there, they're starving. They're going to hit someone, somewhere, if they don't get their welfare checks. Like the liberals here, they'll break anything to get attention, and threaten even more damage unless they get their cash.

There will not be a SINGLE DEMONSTRATION in the streets by peaceniks, either in Paris, or Bonn, or London, or Amsterdam, or San Francisco, in OUTRAGE to this display of nuclear testing or missile provocation and military threats. Not a SINGLE DEMONSTRATION.

There won't be a single line of dissent or concern on International A.N.S.W.E.R.'s webpage.

No Howard Dean supporter, not a single one of them, getting out of his Miata, will express concern or anger.

That's really tells you something as to the greater question of whether these pacifist groups or ANTI WAR? or ANTI AMERICAN?
