North Korea launches rocket:

North Korea has launched a long-range rocket in defiance of condemnation by critics who believe it is seeking to develop technology that will enable it to deliver a nuclear warhead, South Korean TV channel YTN reported.

YTN said the rocket was launched from a site on the west coast. A launch in April ended in failure minutes later.

North Korea says the launch is aimed merely at putting a weather satellite in orbit.

I wonder if this group also did polling for Republicans, posted at 6:29 p.m. tonight, US institute: North Korea rocket launch could be delayed for 10 days or more.
