World condemns North Korean missile tests

SEOUL, South Korea -

North Korea test-fired a seventh missile Wednesday, intensifying the furor that began when the reclusive regime defied international protests by launching a long-range missile and at least five shorter-range rockets earlier in the day.

The North's state-run media said Wednesday that the country was prepared to cope with any provocation by the United States. The announcer on the Korean Central Broadcasting Station did not mention the missile tests earlier in the day.

He also said North Korea's "strong war deterrent" has kept the country at peace. The state-run media often accuses Washington of planning an attack on Pyongyang.

An official at the South Korea Joint Chiefs of Staff confirmed that North Korea had tested a seventh missile that was either short- or medium-range. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity citing agency rules, had no additional details.

Japan's Kyodo News agency reported that the missile landed six minutes after launch, but did not say where. The chief of Russia's general staff said that Russian tracking systems showed that Pyongyang may have launched up to 10 missiles during the day, the Interfax news agency reported.

The missiles, all of which apparently fell harmlessly into the Sea of Japan, provoked international condemnation, the convening of an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council and calls in Tokyo for economic sanctions against the impoverished communist regime.

Well I have been waiting for this. I knew, like many of you, that North Korea was going to launch these missiles in complete and utter defiance of the international community. I however did not expect them to launch on the 4th of July, which I believe was a direct slap in the face to the USA by the midget of North Korea . He is also only jealous of the large amounts of attention being paid to Irans nuclear capabilities, and wants a seat at the table.
China has urged caution on all sides, but with North Korea still launching missiles it seems the overwhelming outcry is having no effect, surprise surprise. There are ways to deal with this little annoyance, massive sanctions going beyond what's in place, making China apply large amounts of pressure to make North Korea comply.
If Clinton and Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright hadn't screwed up so bad and where made to be suckers, than we would not have this problem now!
Thanks Democrats!
