South Korea Says North Korea is Likely to Fire Missile

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korean senior intelligence
officials say North Korea appears to be setting up a long-range
missile, not a satellite launch.
The assessment for South Korean lawmakers came a day after North
Korea announced it was preparing to send a satellite into orbit.
National Intelligence Service officials say the object's shape
"is similar to" the country's long-range missile. The readout
comes from the office of a lawmaker who attended the closed-door
session.
A senior U.S. intelligence official has told The Associated
Press that North Korea is about a month away from launch.
Jane's Defense Weekly says activity at the site suggests North
Korea could be preparing for a missile launch within days.

    If they could have they would have launched it when Clinton was there. They love to rattle them sabers in the faces of those who oppose them. Jane's Defense weekly is pretty accurate. If you really want a handle on world's affairs you might want to consider the Jerusalem Post. They are almost prophetic.
