The North Korean regime has to be somewhere at the peak of crazed despicable regimes.
Yeah, but is Pak Jin Jun hot or what?

They'll tell them it was actually a rocket fired submersible that's now on it's way to the core of the planet to claim it as a N. Korean territory.

Apparently, they got technology from China and Russia, but the North Koreans, maybe because of trust issues or pride, decided to develop their own technology; which is not very good according to experts.

In that part of the world, you don't embarrass your ally by divulging potentially embarrassing news.

I bet China won't official say anything, although the Chinese government may have troubled blocking social media from talking about it.

John Wesley Austin was right!

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

The rocket was a massive success. It was on the news just there. It was always the intention to launch into the sea.

China thinks of North Korea like an annoying but geopolitically useful stepbrother. I can assure you that top Chinese officials looked like this throughout this entire fiasco: But you are right, they probably won't make public comment.

I was in China when Kim Jung-Il died and trust me, no one in China thinks of North Korea as anything but a poor, backwards, sad little place.

I don't know what the big fuss is about, it was just a satelite not a missile or anything. And many countries have failed in making their satelites orbit earth, the US included.

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Of course many countries have had many failed launches.

But they don't try to turn the unsuccessful launch to a success.

Let's be real here, we are talking North Korea here.


China and Soviet Union used to play the same game, but given their relative openness, they can't pull that stunt anymore.
In Asia in general, Chinese and Korean culture in particular, saving face is very important.
