North Korea Launches Test Rockets That Has The World On The Edge

North Korea is claiming to have launched a rocket that was deploying their new weather satellite. The rocket has been talked about for several weeks before its launch, but it looks like other countries didn’t think they were actually going to go through with it.

The launch didn’t go over well with pretty much anyone who isn’t North Korean. Almost every other country considers the tests as a cover for ballistic missile technology, and reacted as such. These suspicions can create even more enemies for North Korea.

According to the New York Times, Obama is considering “Iran-style sanctions” against the country while US National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said the the launch was a “highly provocative act that threatens regional security.” China shared these concerns, but, as a senior American official put it, “They’ve told us that before.”

South Korea held an emergency National Security Council meeting to determine an appropriate reaction, and Japan’s U.N. envoy called for a Security Council meeting.

Britain also condemned the launch, saying they’ll “urgently consult” with other members of the Security Council. Though it looks pretty unlikely that the U.N. is going to step in, the ruffled feathers of this situation are enough trouble at least for now for North Korea.
