COMMIE NORTH KOREA PUSHES ITS LUCK TOO FAR


TOKYO - A defiant North Korea test-fired a long-range missile Wednesday that may be capable of reaching America, but it failed seconds after launch, U.S. officials said. The North also tested four shorter range missiles in an exercise the White House called "a provocation" but not an immediate threat.
Ignoring stern U.S. and Japanese warnings, the isolated communist nation carried out the audacious military tests even as the U.S. celebrated the Fourth of July and launched the space shuttle. South Korea' s Yonhap news agency reported as many as 10 missiles altogether may have been launched, but officials could not confirm that.
None of the missiles made it as far as Japan. The Japanese government said all landed in the Sea of Japan between Japan and the Korean Peninsula.
"We do consider it provocative behavior," National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley said.
Japan protested the tests and called for a U.N. Security Council meeting.

I doubt the missile "failed". It was probabbly meant to stop somewhere in the ocean.
