North Korea Fires Ballistic Missiles: Seoul

Recommended Posts

North Korea has launched a series of missiles off its eastern coast, following similar tests earlier in the week, according to South Korea's Defence Ministry.

 

 

 

Pyongyang fired seven ballistic missiles over several hours Saturday, the Yonhap news agency said, quoting military officials.

 

 

 

The South Korean agency said it appears the North fired a type of short-range Scud missile.

 

 

 

But Yonhap also said it is possible they could have been longer-range Rodong missiles.

 

 

 

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missiles are believed to have flown more than 400 kilometres.

 

 

 

"Our military is fully ready to counter any North Korean threats and provocations based on strong South Korea-U.S. combined defence posture," the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

 

 

 

North Korea is not allowed to fire Scuds, medium-range missiles or long-range missiles. They are banned under UN Resolution 1874, passed after North Korea's May 25 underground nuclear test, prohibiting any launch using ballistic missile technology.

 

 

 

On Thursday, North Korea fired four short-range missiles. Those launches did not violate the resolution as they were cruise missiles rather than ballistic, according to South Korea's Foreign Ministry.

 

 

 

Ballistic missiles are guided during their ascent out of the atmosphere but fall freely when they descend. Cruise missiles fly low and straight to their target.

 

 

 

Three years ago on July 4, North Korea launched a long-range Taepodong-2 multi-stage ballistic missile and six smaller missiles in defiance of a UN resolution.

These guys just don't know when to quit. Anyone else believe they're going to step over the line a few too many times and cause quite the dispute? They've been dancing on this line for a while now. -.-

 

 

 

I wasn't sure if there was an unofficial NK thread or not because I have seen a lot pop up. I just decided to post the information if anyone hasn't heard or would like to further discuss it. I personally believe that action will be taken shortly. Actually, that might be a hope rather than a belief.

North Korea really is pushing it. The leader is, well, stupid. If North Korea starts a war, they will most likely lose.

Its not really our concern.

 

 

 

North Korea is entitled to do whatever it is capable of doing. They know that an invasion of South Korea would effectively be sucidal, so why are we concerned?

 

Either nothing will happen or the USA has an excuse to destroy another communist nation at the expense of a couple of thousand lives. Which they showed they were more than willing to do with Vietnam.

 

 

 

A nuclear or even conventional attack anywhere else would be futile, what with the anti-missile capabilities of the USA, Europe, Russia, China...India.

 

I hardly think any country would retaliate with nuclear force...nor do I think that it would start a nuclear war.


Well I knew you wouldn't agree. I know how you hate facing facts.

Alright, North Korea. If you're going to randomly attack a country, just get on with it so you can be blown to smithereens two hours later. If you're not going to, leave the rest us alone. Just go away.

God... After getting my internet back, I've wanted to hear about it... They said this on the news for 3 seconds, then MJ forever.

 

 

 

So North Korea is just being dumb, I mean their people are suffering and they have the decency to waste more money on missiles.


If you do things right people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
