Missile Launch

Image from ANC 24/7 FB Page.

IMO, we should at least be able to breathe easy because there is no reported radioactive material carried on board. Neither would it be used as a weapon of mass destruction (WMD). We shouldn't hype things up too much.

AFAIK, it is a satellite launch as well, right? So isn't it like America launching a satellite into space? However, what bothers me is that reports say it is a "disguised ballistic missile test". Indeed this would be bothersome for us who live along the path of the missile.

However, I would like to echo the sentiments of my friends, teachers, and most Filipinos: Yes, it is a test, there are indeed risks involved, but then why does it have to land in our sovereign territory?

I hope it would be intercepted by other countries before it reaches the Philippines. The only possible problem would be that that action might become a call for war. Let us hope that this is indeed JUST A SATELLITE LAUNCH and NOT A DISGUISED BALLISTIC MISSILE LAUNCH. News articles online say this would breach a UN Sanction on NoKor on Missile tests if I'm not mistaken.

Oh well, NoKor, you guys are really hard headed, ain't you?

Just my thoughts.
