North Korea moves two more short-range missile launchers to coast

April 21, 2013 NORTH KOREANorth Korea has moved two short-range missile launchers to its east coast, apparently indicating it is pushing ahead with preparations for a test launch, a South Korean news agency reported on Sunday. South Korea and its allies have been expecting some sort of North Korean missile launch during weeks of heightened hostility on the Korean peninsula. An unidentified South Korean military source told the South’s Yonhap news agency that satellite imagery showed that North Korean forces had moved two mobile missile launchers for short-range Scud missiles to South Hamgyeong province. “The military is closely watching the North’s latest preparations for a missile launch,” the source said. The North moved two mid-range Musudan missiles in early April and placed seven mobile launchers in the same area, Yonhap said. A North Korean show of force could be staged to coincide with the anniversary of the founding of its army on April 25. A South Korean Defense Ministry official said he could not confirm the news report and said there had been no sign of unusual activity in North Korea. North Korea fairly regularly test-fires short-range missiles in the sea off its east coast. North Korea stepped up its defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions in December when it launched a rocket that it said had put a scientific satellite into orbit. Critics said the launch was aimed at developing technology to deliver a nuclear warhead mounted on a long-range missile. The North followed that in February with its third test of a nuclear weapon. That brought new U.N. sanctions which in turn led to a dramatic intensification of North Korea’s threats of nuclear strikes against South Korea and the United States. The tension has eased over recent days with the North at least talking about dialogue in response to calls for talks from both the United States and South Korea. On Saturday, North Korea reiterated that it would not give up its nuclear weapons, rejecting a U.S. condition for talks although it said it was willing to discuss disarmament. -Yahoo

  1. Given the entire chain of events that have been playing out in Korea, I am now of the opinion that all of Kim’s war rhetoric has been spewed with two aims in mind. First, he used the situation to improve his image in North Korea as a tough guy leader who was not afraid of the US and our allies. Second, and probably more importantly, he wanted to test American resolve to defend South Korea, and given the amount of back-pedalling that Washington has done I think that Kim has gotten his answer…our committment is more of a paper one than anything else. Oh, certainly if he started shooting we would respond in kind and a war would be on, and given the high tensions on the Korean peninsula a war could still get started as a result of a miscalculation or just an itchy trigger finger, but now Kim knows that he can bring us back to the negotiating table through threats of war. The next time that Little Snotty wants to pitch a hissy fit over something it will be worse than this one, I’m certain of that. The only way to end his reign of terror would be through force, and with ICBM armed China backing him up the US is extremely unlikely to take decisive action, especially under the Obama regime. So we will have to put up with Kim Jong-Un for some time to come, and put up with his threats. Get used to it folks…

    Just a by-note. Have any of you noticed the wheels of the North Korean and Chinese military vehicles? Notice the odd looking “white wall” tires in the recent postings regarding Chinese
    missile deployments? Look at the recent postings in the past 48 hours and they are probably painted for parade purposes but I find them interesting.

    I think that something is amiss here. All of a sudden, China also has deployed missiles identified as
    “carrier killer surface to surface missiles” on its coast across the Taiwan straits which leads me to believe that a move on that island could be in the near future or imminent and these missiles are a message to the US Navy.

    North Korea seems to be following its instructions from its big brother very well.
