    Admiral Mike Mullins : North Korea Must Be Stopped from More Attacks.....

    http://news.yahoo.com/north-korea-mu...104642437.html
    Reuters 26 mins ago

    "North Korea shows no signs of relenting in pursuit of its nuclear capabilities, and I'm not convinced that they won't provoke again," Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters during a visit to the South.

    Mullen attended the change of command of about 30,000 U.S. troops stationed in the South to General James Thurman from outgoing commander General Walter Sharp.

    Mullen, who was in Beijing earlier, said that Chinese military leaders agreed it was important to maintain stability in North Korea. Most experts and officials believe the North Korean regime is not at risk of collapse.

    "We have a sense of urgency to essentially work on planning to deter the North from further provocations. Whether they will be deterred or not, that's to be seen."

    Mullins is suppose to be stepping-down. Should he be out there making these remarks? He states we have a sense of urgency. to essentially start planning. Uhm, shouldn't we have been planning on trying to deter N. Korea already? Should plans have been put in place. Are we just attempting to Sabre rattle tha North once again? Thoughts?

    Well Mullins is a Republican.....still he is stepping down. I can understand the sabre rattling to try and keep N. Korea in some sort of check. As opposed to not saying Anything. But South Korea has no problems antagonizing things as well.

    Satellite images suggest North Korean working on missiles, group says
    Tue November 13, 2012 - North Korea has carried out at least 2 rocket motor tests since April, website says; It cites commercial satellite imagery that shows activity at a launch site; A failed rocket launch by the North in April scuppered a food aid deal with the U.S.; The academic website sees the possibility of rocket and nuclear tests in 2013
    Undeterred by the embarrassment of a failed rocket launch earlier this year, North Korea appears to be pressing ahead with the development of long-range missiles, according to an analysis of satellite images by a U.S. academic website. Drawing on commercial satellite imagery, the website 38 North suggests that the reclusive North Korean regime has carried out at least two tests of large rocket motors at the Sohae Satellite Launch Station on the country's west coast since April. That's the same site from which the nuclear-armed North launched a long-range rocket on April 13 that broke apart shortly after takeoff. Pyongyang said the rocket was supposed to put a satellite in orbit, but the launch was seen by many other countries as cover for a ballistic missile test.

    The most recent test of a large rocket motor at Sohae took place in mid-September, according to the analysis posted Monday by 38 North, which is run by the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. "These tests, critical for the development of new rockets, appear to have been of liquid-fueled, first stage engines" for the type of satellite launch vehicle that failed in April or a new long-range missile that was on show at a parade in Pyongyang this year, 38 North said. Another big rocket launch would further sour North Korea's relations with the United States and South Korea. The failed launch in April scuppered a deal for Washington to provide thousands of tons of food aid to the North's malnourished population.

    It also drew condemnation from the U.N. Security Council, which repeated demands for Pyongyang not to carry out similar tests in the future. The botched launch followed previous attempts in 2006 and 2009. The difference this year was North Korea's decision to invite members of the international news media inside the country during the launch period, allowing them to visit the Sohae station ahead of the launch. North Korean state-run media also reported the rocket's failure to put a satellite in orbit, something they hadn't done for the two previous launches. But the setback hasn't stopped Pyongyang from vaunting its alleged military capabilities. Last month, it said its missiles could reach the U.S. mainland, a claim questioned by some analysts.

    The unsuccessful satellite launches in 2006 and 2009 were both followed weeks or months later by nuclear tests. That hasn't happened so far this time, but 38 North warned Monday that it remains a possibility. "In the aftermath of the U.S. and South Korean presidential elections, Pyongyang may embark on a new round of activities in the first half of 2013, including rocket and nuclear tests that will contribute to further development of its nuclear deterrent," the website said. President Barack Obama was reelected this month in the United States, and the South Korean presidential election takes place next month. South Korean officials have said they believe the North is ready to carry out a nuclear test whenever leaders in Pyongyang make "a political decision" to go ahead with it.

    Every day that Obama policy for dealing with Iran shows increased dividends and is simply , smart.
    The long term implications for reaching some sort of mutually agreed position with North Korea bode better and better .
    Mutt the Misfit and his posturing rhetoric was gruesome and very dangerous .
