As announced, North Korea has launched the rocket they claim is sending a satellite into orbit.
Japan had indicated earlier they would shoot it down, but did not do so.
Barack Obama issued a statement earlier warning of a “Stern response” should North Korea launch the rocket, which many suspect is actually an Intercontinental Ballistic Missle capable of reaching the U.S.

I guess Kim Jung Il won’t be receiving his IPod now.
Is this the International testing Biden said would happen?
UPDATE: The O’s “stern” message to North Korea was delivered in Prague today. B HO “commited the U.S. to take the lead in reducing its nuclear-weapons stockpile…” while recognizing others right to pursue nuclear technology. Reprising the tired campaign slogan, “Yes, we can,” the O said, “his administration was committed to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.”
So, we reduce and rid our stockpile while he *HOPES* others follow suit.
Boy, that’s a “strong message” for sure.
