Did You Know...


And now for the ineffectual protestations from the world

Hey, Joe Biden said “gird your loins” for the testing of Barack Obama, didn’t he? Voila:

North Korea defiantly carried out a provocative rocket launch Sunday that the U.S., Japan and other nations suspect was a cover for a test of its long-range missile technology.
Liftoff took place at 11:30 a.m. (0230GMT) Sunday from the coastal Musudan-ri launch pad in northeastern North Korea, the South Korean and U.S. governments said. The multistage rocket hurtled toward the Pacific, reaching Japanese airspace within seven minutes, but no debris appeared to hit its territory, officials in Tokyo said.

The U.N. Security Council approved an emergency session for Sunday afternoon in New York, following
a request from Japan that came minutes after the launch.

Readying ineffectual protestations from the world:

The South Koreans called it “reckless,” the Americans “provocative,” and Japan said it strongly protested the launch.

Obama’s statement here.

North Korea’s response:

“Nyah, nyah, nyah, we can’t hear you.”
