NKOREA DEFIES WARNINGS, LAUNCHES LONG-RANGE ROCKET

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North Korea appeared to successfully fire a long-range rocket Wednesday, defying international warnings as the regime of Kim Jong Un pushes forward with its quest to develop the technology needed to deliver a nuclear warhead.

Pyongyang's state media quickly claimed that the country had succeed in its mission of putting a peaceful satellite into orbit with its long-range Unha-3 rocket. Officials at the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, said North Korea appeared to have put an object into space.

I seem to recall this exact thing being part of the plot of a video game. The game even used some of the same words...like calling the North Korean satellite "peaceful". In the game though it was anything but.
