So That North Korean Rocket Was A Dud

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/13

The First Street Journal has the report and some rather poignant commentary. As I was listening to WBAP 820-AM out of Dallas on my way home, I heard the good news. The Rocket went up, and at roughly the point where the first stage separates from the second stage, all the radars trained on it saw a much larger blip, like that of an explosion. Within moments, the rocket was no longer on any radar screen. And you betcha the US Military was watching. And they lost all contact with the rocket within moments of the separation stage, which had a much larger signature than would be expected.

WBAP reported that, because of the missile launch, the US has decided not to send that food relief they had planned to send to North Korea. It’s a rather weak protest, I know, but… North Korea absolutely depends on the entire world to feed its people and to keep its government supplied with free money and free munitions and free equipment. Communist China mostly.

With this aggressive, belligerent move from an out of control rogue state, Communist North Korea suddenly became that much poorer (if that is even possible at this stage, what, with their people eating grass and dirt).

You know, I have to wonder how much business Communist North Korea lost with their failed launch. All those terrorist organizations plus Iran looking to Communist North Korea for their hate-filled, anti-Semitic, anti-West plans. And it all went up in an inglorious fireball.
