N. Korea Is Said to Be Fueling Rocket

My 6th sense tells me Obama will knock this one down. Not because he believes it's the right thing to do, but, rather because he believes it's what the American people need to see from him at this moment in time.

SEOUL — North Korea has begun fueling its rocket, a news report said on Thursday, in what missile experts consider a definitive indication that the Communist state will launch it as early as this weekend.

As the launching approached, North Korea assumed an increasingly hostile posture. On Thursday, it threatened to send a “thunderbolt of fire” crashing down on Japan if it attempts to shoot down the rocket.

North Korea says it will launch the rocket between Saturday and Wednesday to thrust an experimental communications satellite into orbit. But Washington and its allies consider the launch a test of the North’s intercontinental ballistic missile technology.
