Awwwww, poor Kimbo. not only did his new toy crap out on him, but nobody hardly noticed. Everybody is too preoccupied with the Ukraine war. Nobody wikes Kimmy, nobody noticed a thing! Wahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

We're not impressed, Mr. Marshmallow Head. Up your butt with a cocoanut!

Well, someone is off to a labor camp

Hardly seems much like news, tests fail sometimes. That's why you have tests. Not so sure successful tests would be newsworthy either, plenty of countries have them often enough.

Little Kimmy boy just wants to flex his pinky. 'Oooooh! I'm bad! I'm bad! Uh-huh! Uh-huh!'.

Go away, Kimbo.

Just.

Go.

Away.

Finally, some good news!

Turns out Little Rocket Man's little rockets are complete duds. Loser.

Just think of the hospitals, agriculture and infrastructure that could be invested in, instead of a failed missile program. Useless stuff like that does not concern the Kim dynasty.

North Korean launch apparently ends in failure

Heh Heh!

With things the way they are in Ukraine, this is no time to be laughing at Kim.

Each and every test they conduct puts them one step closer to a fully functional ICBM.

Who's going to be laughing then?

But a win for its people and the world. That would be happy news.

Yes, and the socialist economy as espoused by Marx and Engels emphasized all those things. The proletariat ruling (the world), not some pukey brat with a personality cult. Where is the 'Democratic People's Republic' in NK? Where is the 'socialism' here when this lunkhead is ignoring the needs of the North Korean people and strutting his butt around with these pathetic BS displays of 'might' and 'power'?

Kim's got his priorities all wrong and he turns out to br a joke. Besides, the 'new sensation' for the rest of the world is Ukraine but it truly should be CoVid because we ain't over it yet.

China just put 17 million on lockdown because of another outbreak.

China also sent a newly arrived 25 year old female assassin from California all the way to New York to stab to death a Chinese dissident.

She came on F-1 visa to go to school in California. Never went to class then travelled all the way to New York to see this famous Tiananmen protester turned US lawyer. Then she killed him.

I was going to write something but you said it best in your first post. Spot On!

Show-off Kim tried again only to draw lukewarm reactions now..

Well, someone is off to a labor camp

Could be worse.... Someone would be piecemeal (literally!) with mortar shells.

Probably where all the testing and research is done in the first place. Can't be all that many qualified people left to actually get it right!

As many people say, there's no such thing as failure. They've just learned how not to do something.

@Numan,

China also sent a newly arrived 25 year old female assassin from California all the way to New York to stab to death a Chinese dissident.

All the articles I've read on this report that staff of the killed lawyer speculate that the lawyer had refused to take on the killer as a client. Do you have further info? I can't open the link you posted. (I get the message "not available in your country". And no, I'm not in Russia.)

It would probably surprise most of you that the Norks have been sending students to top universities around the world to study engineering and science. Not large numbers but enough. They go home and design missiles and nuclear weapons.

Wasting money on rockets that can never be used is dumb.

Nobody is going to attack NK, even if they don't modernize their tanks, there won't be anyone attacking due to China's CCP umbrella.

Stop wasting money on military and work on feeding the people and growing the economy for a better future of the Korean people.

Not necessarily. As a rocket scientist, I can confirm that not everything comes back to Earth, though the stuff Kim is launching always will. Nowhere near escape velocity (~ 11.2 KM/sec). That's about Mach 33 at sea level, but Mach is related to the air density, so it changes the higher a vehicle goes.
