North Korea missile launches raise tensions

South Korean defence officials said that North Korea had launched two
surface-to-ship missiles from a site on its west coast early on
Wednesday, a day after world leaders attending a nuclear security summit
in Seoul urged the regime to cancel the rocket launch and return to
six-party nuclear talks.North Korea insists that the forthcoming
launch, which is expected around 15 April to coincide with the centenary
of the birth of the country's founder Kim Il-sung, is designed to put

  • Who cares about rocket antics? Seoul is within shelling distance FFS. Two plus million North Korean troops vs. a half million South Koreans supplemented by the US.
