When Jim from Michigan called News Talk Online on Paltalk.com on Friday to express his concerns about the impending launch of a North Korea rocket I downplayed the threat. Perhaps I misjudged.
Tonight the North Koreans launched the rocket, one that analysts say has the capability to reach and deliver a warhead to Alaska.
The rest over the Pacific is causing global concern, especially in South Korea, Japan, over which the rocket passed, and the United States.
Of course, it shows that North Korea is more interested in saber rattling than it is in providing food and electricity to its own citizens.
President Obama had warned Pyongyang that should it launch the rocket as threatened North Korea would suffer consequences from the international community. But he has not said what action his administration would propose.
We talk about issues like this and more weekdays at 5 PM New York time on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com
