||Now this news story was a little disturbing. It seems that North Korea has once again successfully put a satellite into orbit. Now you might say big deal, but what they used was the same type of technology needed to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) with a 450 payload 13,000 km. That means they can hit the entire United States if their crazy little dictator wants to.
What is even more of a concern is that only three years ago, their missiles could only carry 200 pounds to go 10,000 km. That makes it clear that North Korea could care less about their violations of U.N Security Council resolutions. In fact they are openly defiant of any attempt at diplomatic resolution by the international community on this subject.
