In the wake of North Korea's rocket launch, U.S. Congress has passed a defense law modified for next year calling for tougher measures such as the possible construction of a new missile defense base and defense capability assessments. The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a bill condemning North Korea for its recent rocket launch. The National Defense Authorization Act contains a raft of policy and funding packages including budgets for military activities, related construction and research and development programs.

The measure defines Pyongyang's rocket launch as a clear violation of UN resolutions. It also calls on China to actively pressure North Korea and to get behind sanctions against the regime. The bill also states North Korea and Iran cooperated extensively since the 1980s to develop long-range missiles.

I see through your posts that you have an interest in Korea, especially North Korea. I do as well, but what is the purpose of your thread here? If it's to broadcast news, I think you're wasting your key strokes to be honest. What is the debate? What question is prompted through your posted news articles?

As for the article, the U.S. always wants to do the dirty work of other hands (I mean China) Why Korea can not have a safety of his country? For the U.S., this launch is just another reason for the creation of new laws and spending money of American citizens.

Even more sanctions and even more isolation, more military bases on the Korean peninsula. Does anyone honestly thing that THIS is the way to generate a peaceful relationship between DPRK and the South? Ridiculous...

The only way to go is a an enhanced cooperation between the north and the south, more economical involvement in the north (china alone is currently exploiting natural resources and cheap labor in the north) and more communication. The new South Korean president must do one step beyond...

And of course US will once again refuse to do it jointly with Russia, which will force the latter to increase its nuclear arsenal.

Hit me, if that's the road to peace in the world...
