For almost a week, millions of people around the world have their own imaginations and perceptions regarding the aftermath of a North Korean missile launch on April 12 to 16, 2012. For sure, millions have lodged their unfavorable comments against such behavior of the leaders of that nation. The news of the satellite launch has shackled millions of people in agitations, fears, anxieties, restlessness and other pigments of imaginations can visualize about the firing of the rocket.
Considering the proximity of the Philippines, Japan, Taiwan and China to North Korea people in these countries have the most fears, anxieties and restlessness. In the Philippines, the launch became talks of the village, town and city folks. Imagined miscalculated and dangerous landing of debris in any part of Luzon Island caused immeasurable restlessness of people who were so much agitated by the news.
The worldwide circulated news of the launch had caught and teased the imaginations of the diplomatic community. Alexander Lukashevich, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman in state owned news agency RIA quoted that, “We believe Pyongyang's decision to carrying out a launch of a satellite an example of disrespect for U.N. Security Council decisions”. “On the other hand, North Korea called the launch its prerogative and sovereign right” reported Jason1984 as quoted.
Similarly, Vicky247 reported as quoted, “Several countries, including Japan, South Korea and the United States have condemned the North Korean project, considering it a disguised test of a missile capable of carrying nuclear weapons. China , favors exhausting diplomacy, has called this Tuesday calm and restraint . "All parties" must respect international law to prevent an
increase in tension on the peninsula, the spokesman said the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Liu Weimin.”
Yes, laymen, world leaders and diplomats have expressed very strong oppositions against the North Korean project to launch an observation satellite on the occasion of 100th birthday of Kim Il-sung, the grand father of present leader Kim Jung-Un.
The positive vibrations of all thoughts against the missile launch as scheduled must have caused its successful failure as carried in global news media. Yes, the satellite broke into pieces after take off which also, turned into pieces of embarrassments of North Korean nuclear technology. The break-up into pieces of the much feared satellite shows the quality of nuclear know how North Korean leaders have bragged and used for a long time to foment tensions in the world.
The successful failure of the launch unveiled the truth of the quality of nuclear technology North Korea possesses up to date. Nevertheless, the shadow of deception is always entertained which compels everyone not to be relieved of all the restlessness.
Hopefully, the real rocket will never be launched as the North Korean nuclear program will never come up with the missile that will be successfully tested as envisioned. It is better that North Korean leaders fool the world with their failure to fire a missile rather than destroy any part of the world with successful test of its satellite.
