The North Korean Missile(s) Launch

Well, it looks like North Korea went through with it's threats to launch short-range and long-range missiles toward the United States. They fired six missiles July 4, 2006 (conveniently timed, huh?) and a seventh missile today.

Although the two long-range Taepodong-2 missiles could theoretically have reached Alaska, they never had a real chance of reaching our shores because they fizzled out in the Sea of Japan.

The international community is in an uproar. The U.N. Security Council has convened for an emergency session where Japan proposed a draft resolution, supported by the United States, Britain and France, condemning North Korea.

This is a situation we desperately need to confront sooner rather than later. Liberals won't want to do it, but they never do. That's one of the reasons we didn't put them in power.

Republicanpundit has a great article about the third member of the Axis of Evil that expands on this story. Please check it out.
