Bad News, watch little kim execute each and everyone involved.

Someone in that rocket team will be in really deep trouble.

North Korean schools in Japan are asking Japanese government to give them subsidies, calling it discrimination not to give them money. Ask Kim the Dear Leader for the money. Their home country has enough financial resources to launch one ballistic missile after another.

How many North Koreans involved in this failed launch will be killed as punishment?

They said they would launch it from midnight onwards, i.e. from Tuesday thru 3 June, but then, as on previous occasions, broke their word and launched early.

The Kim Regime. Bad for the world. Bad for the North Korean people.

@woodlee: Bad News, watch little kim execute each and everyone involved.

And the anti-democracy herd will say he is 'strong and savvy' for doing so, they love their favorite despots killing off people.

China, has joined Russia in blocking U.S.-led efforts at the U.N. Security Council to tighten sanctions on the North.

North Korea has done NOTHING wrong over this. They have their rights to launch satellites as other nations does. The sanctions was ridiculous and must be removed. Why Israel is allowed to rampage Gaza without consequences?

North Korea killed nobody since 13 years ago sunken a South Korean frigate,the S.Koreans think that was history. But the killings in Gaza is just in front of our eyes now !

The Kim regieme. Bad for the world.

Please do not regard the whole world agrees with America's agree. Not all the countries in this world agree with your state department rhetorics. Ask Turkey, a NATO country of what do they think about Israel and North Korea?

Perhaps you should ask why some countries frustrated with America after watching the news report from al Jazeera.

So in your eyes kidnapping Japanese citizens is fine?

Not to mention that Kim is spending money on missiles and failed satellites when a large percentage of the North Korean population is starving.

Nice to read some good news for a change.

A North Korean rocket carrying Russia's spy satellite is probably what is should read.

So you believe that a cult worship dictatorship based soleley on blood line is "good"?

You believe that a country that is poor as dirt should spend all of it's money on weapon after weapon when their citizens are starving is "good"?

You believe that a country that engages in the counterfeiting other nations' currencies, producing and exporting illegal drugs, hacking into and stealing money from overseas bank accounts are all "good"?

You belive that a police state where people get incarcerated for such crimes as "listening to Kpop" is "good"?

If you do, I'd say you deserve to live there. Nobody needs the US State Department or anyone else to tell them whats good and what's bad.

LOL Russia received arms China received "Misinformation in return. Putin gave Lil Kim incorrect information in terms of helping Lil Kim with his weapons program. Bad software "North Korea said there was an error in the emergency blasting system during the third-stage flight".

Japan's most influential TV channel, public broadcast NHK expressing rocket as "missile" domestically despite using expressions such as "rocket" "satellite" toward overseas. They seem to try to arouse anxiety among people to distract public eyes from fundraising scandals and to help unpopular LDP regime.

If you ask your neighbor to pick his trash, you start by setting the example and picking your own.

if you want NK to denuclearize, why not starting first?

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Oh, the fish. The horror of the fish. Most of his rockets end up in the sea. This one went. . .where? Did it atomize? For some Kim is a hero (far-cough-right) but he seems pretty despotic to me. I might be alone on this, but I don't think so.
