    (CNN) North Korean state media are reporting that a "very important test took place at the Sohae Satellite launching Ground" on Saturday.

    According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the test produced a "successful result" and was of "great significance" and that it will "change the strategic position of North Korea in the near the future."

    It was not immediately clear what was tested.

    Earlier this month, North Korea warned obliquely it would send the US a "Christmas gift," but what that present contains will depend on the outcome of ongoing talks between Washington and Pyongyang.

    This little jerk never knows when to leave
    well enough alone...

    Significant means it did not explode on the launching pad

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    It's time to shoot down the next missile in the air as soon as possible after it leaves North Korean airspace. If the Japanese don't have an anti-missile system that can do this, we probably could sell them one. If we can't, Israel can.
