North Korea Sends a Message and a Missile

North Korea launched a two-stage missile that flew over the mainland of Japan.  Japan didn’t shoot it down.  Neither did the US.

Apparently Obama’s “smart power” diplomacy is to wait and see if the Korean missile actually hits something somewhere with a warhead.  Then the stern words of warning will fly!

The BBC News reports:
The rocket blasted off from the Musudan-ri launch site in the northeast of the country at 0230 GMT.
North Korea says it is sending a satellite into orbit, but its neighbours suspect the launch could be a cover for a long-range missile test.
Japan, South Korea and the US strongly condemned the launch. Tokyo requested a meeting of the UN Security Council.
The US called North Korea's launch a "provocative act".

America would take "appropriate steps to let North Korea know that it cannot threaten the safety and security of other countries with impunity", a US State Department Spokesman said.
Hold on a second. Didn’t the Obama administration just do that?

The BBC continued:
But Pyongyang's neighbours believe the real aim of the launch was to test long-range missile technology.
They suspect North Korea of testing its Taepodong-2 missile, which could put parts of the US within the communist nation's military reach.
North Korea first tested a Taepodong-2 in July 2006. Three months later, it carried out a nuclear test.
International talks involving the US, South Korea, Japan, Russia and China on an aid-for-nuclear disarmament deal are currently stalled.
Sleep well America.  Obama is dazzling the world with his leadership and Hillary will announce this week: A really, really, really super smart power diplomacy to handle this situation.

Meanwhile, The rocket from North Korea, that may soon be able to carry a nuclear warhead, flew unhindered.  And it could be headed in our direction.
