  1. #1 North Korea says fuel being injected into rocket now 
    North Korea was injecting fuel into a long-range rocket “as we speak”, the head of the North Korean satellite control centre said on Wednesday ahead of a launch condemned by its neighbours and the West.
    “I think the fuel injection will be completed at an appropriate date,” Paek Chang-ho, head of the satellite control centre of the Korean Committee of Space Technology, told a group of foreign journalists.
    He would not comment on when the fuel injection would be complete. “And as for the exact timing of the launch, it will be decided by my superiors”, Paek said.
    Regional powers said the launch, due sometime between Thursday and next Monday, is a disguised test of the North’s long-range missile. The North says it is merely putting a weather satellite into space.

    North Korea's long range rocket launch is provocative action!!!!

    Doesn't matter. They launched. Or tried to.

    Syria, Iran, NK, Egypt...all point their fingers and laugh at us. Russia will get what it wants in December. WTF is going on.

    100% correct JB. My take as well.

    Wow! Such times we are living in. Reminds me of the so called "Ancient Chinese Proverb/curse"

    "May you live in interesting times."

    We certainly are!

    It broke apart after launch? Calm down people. It was probably made of Campbell Soup cans welded together. I'm not saying NK isn't a dangerous pain in the ass, but c'mon!

    If you are making an EMP weapon it is supposed to blow up at low altitude.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    By the way, those were little Kimmie's apple juice cans that were welded together.

    I understand, Rock, but still. Come on. All we have to do is stop sending them food for a month or two. They'll be busy.
