He needs to go to a brothel that allows shittin, trust me.

And uses coleslaw as lube.

 Never in my life did I ever think I'd read a thread that contained Kim Jong Il and coleslaw lube. Such thought provoking food for the seoul.

That deserves a laughing smiley.  :lol:

Well done.
Of course. I've been grooming Pedro for ages just to get a crack at that starfish.

They'd never be able to hit anywhere then Uk their missiles only have a range of 5000 Miles plus we are covered by a missile shield, parts of the US (Covered by missile shields) , eastern europe(Wonder if those russian b******s will shut the f*** up about that missile shield in the Czech Republic now), Asia and Oceania are all viable targets though.

Missile shield, what missile shield?

You do realise that the UK is only a fannies hair more than 5,000 miles away from North Korea dont you?  If they strap a couple of pigeons to the side of the missile they may well be able to make it to the UK.  :kasper:

I forget now which book I was leafing through last year, where the author was a frequent visitor to N. Korea throughout the 90s, and there is a chapter in which he mentions state-hired actors:

On the subway, the man embarked and disembarked all day long, travelling his given route.

Same group of kids playing marbles by the govt offices all day long.

Subway trains arrive on time only for foreign visitors' visits.

When he asked his govt aide about these strange events, the man gave a matter-of-fact answer of something like, "we have to keep the image of the country up for visitors. Never know what might happen if you don't control it."

Ain't no Godfather dynasty like the Kim dynasty.

There was also the account of two Swedish salesmen  who were allowed entry into the country to sell something or the other to the govt, and when they landed they were on telly immediately, with highly political messages about them being in full support of the "great leader." They were to only travel in govt-issued vehicles and on a given route.

I know some Swedes in the oil business who were met at the airport, taken to the main square where there were thousands standing in ranks in front a statue of The Great Leader - they were put in row 2 and given bunches of flowers - when the first row stepped forward and put the flowers down the whole parade moved up - they were on TV that night with the story that they'd come all the way just for the ceremony - what was really weird was that their translator, who'd actually given them the flowers, was in tears at their "Wonderful gesture" - weirder than hell

Aye but its unliekly those missiles would travel 5000 miles anyway and if they did I'd bet my life they'd end up landing about 2000 miles off target.

They are two points clear, will most likely get a draw today, can see them making it tbh. If the USA (by some miracle) qualify, imagine USA vs DPR !

North Korea launches rocket over Japan

© REUTERS2009
By Linda Sieg and Jack Kim

TOKYO/SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea launched a long-range rocket over Japan on Sunday, defying calls to scrap a plan that had caused international alarm and prompting swift condemnation from Asian powers and Washington.

The United States said it would take steps to let the reclusive North know that it could not threaten the security of others with impunity.

South Korea called the launch a "reckless" act.

Japan said the rocket's second booster stage splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, indicating the launch had been a success.

"The projectile launched from North Korea today appears to have passed over towards the Pacific," the office of the Japanese prime minister said in a statement.

"It is extremely regrettable that North Korea went ahead with the launch ... and we protest strongly," said Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Takeo Kawamura.

The United States, South Korea and Japan had said the launch would actually be the test of a Taepodong-2 missile, which is designed to carry a warhead as far as Alaska.

Impoverished North Korea, which for years has used military threats to wring concessions from regional powers, has said it is putting a satellite into orbit as part of a peaceful space programme and threatened war if the rocket was intercepted.

Sunday was the second day in the April 4-8 timeframe the secretive North, which tested a nuclear device in 2006, had set for the launch. In its only previous test flight, in July 2006, the Taepodong-2 blew apart about 40 seconds after launch.

The first rocket booster stage appeared to drop into the Sea of Japan, an estimated 280 km (170 miles) west of the northern Japan coast, the prime minister's office said in a statement.

The second piece appeared to fall into the Pacific Ocean around 1,270 km (790 miles) east of Japan, it said.

JAPAN SAYS TOOK NO ACTION AGAINST ROCKET

Japan's Kyodo news agency said no interceptors had been launched at the rocket and no damage on the ground had been reported.

Japan had dispatched missile intercepting-ships and anti-missile batteries along the projected flight path.

Tokyo said it would not intercept the missile but that it was ready to shoot down any debris, such as falling booster stages, that might threaten its territory.

Analysts said the launch may help North Korean leader Kim Jong-il shore up support after a suspected stroke in August raised questions of his grip on power and bolster his hand in using military threats to win concessions from global powers.

The United States, Japan and South Korea will view the launch as a violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution passed in 2006 after Pyongyang carried out the nuclear test and other missile tests.

That resolution, number 1718, demands North Korea "suspend all activities related to its ballistic missile programme."

U.N. Security Council diplomats have told Reuters on condition of anonymity that no country was considering imposing new sanctions but the starting point could be discussing a resolution for the stricter enforcement of earlier sanctions.

Both Russia and China, the latter the nearest the reclusive North has to a major ally, have made clear they would block new sanctions by the Council, where they have veto power.

I honestly don't feel threatened by them testing nukes or launching rockets. Probably because I live so close to the border they could level my neighborhood by throwing stones if they wanted to.
