North Korea: Missile test coming

“Congratulations, North Korea!” blogs Robert J. Koehler at The Marmot's Hole in response to news that North Korea will soon test-fire a missile capable of striking America. “Soon, you might have the capability to ensure the Americans turn South Korea into an island in the event of an emergency. And you still can't eat plutonium.”


  • Robert P. Jackson

    If North Korea launches this “test missile”, I hope that the US missile defense system is put to its first test, and shoots the thing out of the sky. The North Koreans will blame us for it, even if it isn’t true, so why not conduct a live systems test? We’ve seen countless times how we cannot trust the government of N. Korea, so this might be the best chance we have of putting them in their place, once and for all.
