#1 ION SPACEWAR > NORTH KOREA SEEKS LEVERAGE WID NEW MISSLE:ANALYSTS.
Dont fergit the Nukalaar tests(s).
* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > CHINA GAVE NORTH KOREA MISSLE LAUNCHER, VIOLATED UN RESOLUTION ITSELF.
* WORLD NEWS > [DNA India] HUMILIATED NORTH KOREA COULD SAVE FACE WID NUCLEAR DEVICE.
Prob is, few iff any Perts in the US-West believe that the DPRK's MilTech + Nucprogs os outside of China's oversight + control.
RUSSIA SAID IT BLUNTLY = NORTH KOREA'S NUCPROGS, ETC. IS [actually] CONTROLLED BY CHINA.
See below, in part.
* SAME > CHINA'S DILEMMA OVER NORTH KOREA LAUNCH.
* SAME > [Yahoo News] CAUSE OF NORTH KOREA'S ROCKET FAILURE MAY REMAIN A MYSTERY.
IMO Artic read, TOO DANGEROUS TO PUBLICLY REVEAL FOR 50 YEARS [or more].
* RUSSIA TODAY > CHINA + US LOCK-N-LOAD AHEAD OF [coming?] SHOWDOWN IN PACIFIC.
* WORLD MILITARY FORUM > PRESIDENT OF PALAU/BELAU REQUESTS FOR US MILITARY BASES TO BE BUILT ON ISLAND, CLAIMS THAT FORMERLY DETAINED, NOW-RELEASED CHINESE FISHERMEN INTENTIONALLY BURNED OR DESTROYED ANY REAL EVIDENCE OF ILLEGAL SPYING OR FISHING.
* WORLD MILITARY FORUM > PRC FOREIGN MINISTRY SPOKESMAN LIU WEMIN: CHINA DEMANDS PHILIPINE SURVEY/ARCHAEOLOGICAL SHIP LEAVE WATERS OF HUANGYAN ISLAND [Scarborough Shoal].
* SAME > INFAMOUS TOKYO GOVERNOR SHINTARO ISHIHARA SAYS JAPAN SHOULD BUY DAOYUS [Japan = Senkakus] FROM REAL "LANDOWNER". DITTO FOR OTHER DISPUTED ISLANDS IN EAST CHINA SEA.
HMMMM, HMMMMMM, well, its not clear in the Artic iff 'ole Ishihara is referring to CHINA per se [prolly is], or perhaps highly trained renegade Shaolin Monks turned Island-owning Syndicate Boss ala Bruce Lee's "ENTER THE DRAGON"???

#2 Any missile work has got to be a cooperative effort between Iran and the Norks. And any nuclear scientists are there to work on a nuclear bomb, not to help with a rocket launch.
