North Korea Plans Rocket Launch

5 posts in this topic

Looks like Kimmy is going to launch a rocket. I wonder why he is giving everyone a heads up? That's not like him.


SEOUL - Japan and South Korea joined the United States Wednesday in demanding that North Korea cancel plans to send a long-range rocket into space, saying the launch would violate United Nations resolutions banning ballistic-missile and nuclear weapon development in the country.


North Korea notified U.N. agencies late Tuesday its plans to launch what it calls an "Earth observation satellite" sometime between February 8-25.

Pyongyang maintains it has a sovereign right to pursue a space program by launching rockets, but Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and other U.S. allies have denounced the program as a hostile pretense intended to circumvent international restrictions.

"This has been a meaning actually for a ballistic-missile test. In addition to the nuclear tests, North Korea testing these ballistic missiles is an obvious violation of Security Council decisions. In terms of important security decisions for our country, it's a provocation," Abe said.

His government Wednesday ordered the military to shoot down any North Korean rocket that threatens Japan.

Japan orders SDF to shoot down North Korean missile

Japan on Wednesday condemned Pyongyang’s plan to launch a space rocket, calling it a thinly disguised test of a long-distance ballistic missile.

The government ordered Aegis ballistic missile defense warships of the Maritime Self-Defense Force and land-based Patriot PAC-3 rocket units to respond should projections show components falling in Japanese territory.

“This will effectively mean the firing of a ballistic missile. It would be a clear violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions and a grave, provocative act against the security of our country,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told a Lower House session Wednesday.

“Japan, in cooperation with the United States and South Korea, will strongly urge North Korea to refrain from (conducting) the launch,” Abe said.

On Tuesday night, North Korea notified the International Maritime Organization that it plans to send a “satellite” into orbit between Feb. 8 and 25. It said the launch will take place on one of those days between 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Japan time.

Kim Jong-un 'to Watch Rocket Launch on Site'

North Korea appears to have built a viewing booth for Kim Jong-un at the Tongchang-ri missile launch site near its northwestern border with China, a government source here said Thursday.

Analysis of satellite images shows North Korea's preparations for the planned space rocket launch have progressed significantly, according to the source.

"Since they've built a viewing booth it seems Kim Jong-un will personally watch the launch," the source said.

Authorities here are watching out for the armored train Kim inherited from his father to pull up in the area as a sign that the launch is imminent.
