A Matter of Great Concern

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is “making brisk headway” for the launch of the Taepodong-2 that will carry the nation’s first….err…..the “second” experimental communications satellite after failed tests in 1998 and 2006. Many analysts believe that Pyongyang is attempting to test the willingness of the BHO White House to bargain a deal, especially after the six party talks on verifying their nuclear activities have been on hold since mid-2008. South Korea, having linked financial aid to disarmament, has cost the North $300 million in aid and therefore may be trying to turn public opinion against President Lee Myung-bak’s policy.

As Iran has been the major recipient of North Korea’s missile technology, how they was first to succeed in space probably eludes them.
