A tale of two launches

The contrast between our shuttle launch and North Korea's pathetic attempt to show it's muscle couldn't be more stark. Discovery's launch worried many Americans because we believe that it may be somewhat outdated and dangerous to the astronauts on board. North Korea's fizzled attempt at a missile test proves that while a madman runs that country, it's capabilities are minimal and decades behind ours. We should continue to pressure North Korea's neighbors to solve this problem and not bow to the political left in this country that wants to play up Kim Jung Il's power simply to distract us from our mission in the Middle East.

For anyone more interested in the space travel angle of this post, Pravda has an interesting theory on what makes a space mission successful.
