This is coolbert:
Who are you?
"Iran and North Korea vs. Japan and the U.S.?"
This IS troubling? Some intelligence agency from somewhere is really on the ball here? Normally, intelligence of this nature, if true, is very hard to get out of North Korea.
A lot of folks at the very top ARE going to be watching this with a lot of interest.
"Iranian missile experts in North Korea ahead of rocket launch "
From today: March 29, 2009
"A GROUP of Iranian missile experts is in North Korea to help Pyongyang prepare for a rocket launch, Japan's Sankei Shimbun newspaper reported on Sunday."
"The news comes as spy satellites have photographed the nose cone of a long-range North Korean rocket on its launch pad, but its remains unclear whether it is carrying a satellite or a warhead."
"North Korea has said it will launch a communications satellite over northern Japan between April 4 and 8, and the report said the 15-strong Iranian delegation had been in the country since the beginning of this month"
" [It] 'remains unclear whether it is carrying a satellite or a warhead'"
Correct, which is it, and how can you tell?
And the connection between Iran and North Korea of itself is troubling. Iran has a demonstrable capability to orbit a satellite. And now North Korea will too.
George Bush was correct!? North Korea and Iran DO represent two parts of an axis of evil!?
Has anyone thought of this? The FRACTIONAL ORBITAL BOMBARDMENT SYSTEM! A concept, never deployed, from over forty years ago now.
A satellite, carrying a nuclear weapon, is put into orbit.
A satellite, that ON COMMAND, CAN BE BROUGHT BACK TO EARTH, UPON A DESIGNATED TARGET!
An orbiting nuclear weapon, the proverbial Sword of Damocles, hanging over the head of the whole world, and most especially, over the head of the American people. Literally so!
"The Sword of Damocles is frequently used in allusion . . . epitomizing the imminent and ever-present peril faced by those in positions of power. More generally, it is used to denote the sense of foreboding engendered by a precarious situation, especially one in which the onset of tragedy is restrained only by a delicate trigger or chance."
A weapon that if the go command is issued, will allow President Obama a whole five minutes to make the decision to retaliate. If indeed anyone knows for sure that a nuclear weapon is aboard that "communications satellite"!
Am I being excessively alarmist and overly pessimistic here??!! The thoughts of the devoted reader to the blog is invited.
