North Korea Test-Fires Several Missiles

Happy f'ing July 4th..

Breaking News on CNN and the NYTimes has it on line also

We launch the space shuttle and shoot off fireworks and North Korea launches 4 missles.

How crazy is this bastard?

At least the long range missle failed - less than a minute after it was launched..

This is not the first time North Korea has test fired missiles. The long range missile is a new concern, but the fact that the test failed shows just how far North Korea has to go in that area. As far as Kim's sanity, testing a new missile is the only way to know if it works. Name a country that does not test any of its ballistic missiles.

Oh, well that makes me feel better

With all due respect, Kim's sanity is precisely what worries me..

That's a good question actually.. and the answer(s) are somewhat extensive.
Then again I only know what I've heard, seen and read.

so I'll just say - google.com

Since I don't really trust everything I see and hear, maybe you could enlighten me as to why I should not think he's most likely insane.
Do you believe he's rational and/or sane and I pose the same question.. why?

Think about it this way, Kim was born into this situation. He enherited his fathers estate. Has he invaded or attacked any countries since he has been in power? As a matter of fact, when was the last time that North Korea invaded or attacked anyone? I think it was 1950. From a foreign policy perspective, that certainly is not behavior that would suggest that we should be worried, at least on that particular point. They have had Nuclear weapons since 1994 and have launched all the ballistic missiles used today more than a decade ago.

Trying to defend such an obvious despot like Kim is a little like defending the dastardly deeds of Rumsfeld, Cheney and Bush. It's all bloody well INSANE.

Well, the American people looked at Rumsfeld, Cheney and Bush back in 2004 and decided to re-elect the trio.

No one is trying to defend Kim's actions against his own people. But in terms of what he has done to other countries and people other than North Korean citizens, he really does not rank up there near the top of the list. Its one thing to have capabilities to invade other countries and WMD capability, its another to have invaded and attacked other countries as well as used WMD against other countries like someone from Baghdad did.

the embarassing failure of the NoKo missile launches leads me to believe that, once again, we've purposefully overestimated their military capabilities in order to drum up fear that will drum up funding for silly projects like the "missile defense shield."

Lil' Kim is completely insane, yes, which leads me to wildly disagree with this quote:

[q]No one is trying to defend Kim's actions against his own people. But in terms of what he has done to other countries and people other than North Korean citizens, he really does not rank up there near the top of the list.[/q]

life inside North Korea is far, far worse for the average citizen than inside Iraq ever was. granted, this is like comparing Alcatraz to Rikers to San Quentin, but North Korea is the closest we have to a 1950s-style Stalinist nation with forced labor camps, gulags, mass starvation, over 200,000 held for "political crimes," forced abortions, humans used as guinea pigs for the testing of biological and chemical agents, etc.

one of the reasons that NoKo has not invaded anyone else is because KJI has been effectively contained since the end of the Korean War, and he hasn't been supplied arms by the US or given tacit approval to go to war against neighbors we don't like.

containment, from a military standpoint, can and does work.

the humanitarian situation, however, is much more difficult to deal with.

Michael Moore is a corporate lap dog who is one sided in his views and manipulates his films. Sheehan yes she did loose her son, who voluntary re-enlisted. So stop whining it was his "choice".
