North Korea Builds Underground Fueling Facility

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - A published report says North Korea is
trying to make it harder for spy satellites to detect signs that a
missile is being prepared for firing.
The South Korean newspaper (Dong-a Ilbo) newspaper reports
Pyongyang built an underground fueling facility near a key launch
pad either late last year or early this year.
The National Intelligence Service, Seoul's top spy agency, and
the Defense Ministry declined to confirm the report, citing the
sensitivity of intelligence matters.
North Korea announced earlier this week that it plans to send a
communications satellite into orbit as part of its space program.
Neighboring powers and the U.S. believe the launch may be a
cover for a test-fire of a long-range ballistic missile.

    Um ya think? Israeli intelligence and media has been reporting this stuff for a year and the AP just now reports it? Are you media elites even aware that Israel took out an atomic site in Syria in the fall of 2007?? Seems Syria was putting the uranium and chemical weapons they got from Saddam Hussein of Iraq to good use. Of course the left in this country was too busy chanting "NO WMD BUSH LIED" into everyone's face, to listen. North Korean nuclear scientist were killed in that attack. More than likely they are gonna have a test to draw attention away from something Iran or Hezbollah are about to pull. Guess OLE' Joe Biden was right about a big test. Thing is it seems the left is to busy fawning over their "savior" to be ready for it. God Help us!!
