Here's an old post I made on the subject,
It's only fair to give the other side a fair go in such disputes, at the very least showing their point of view. Sadly, because apparently the Dear Leader did not embrace the use of more capable CMS, you have to visit the Korean Central News Agency, select English, and search for "rocket". Select the 4th result "North Korea Launches Satellite of Love". Yup, no way to link directly to articles.
Pentagon Urges N.Korea to Give Up Missile Launch Plans
The satellite launch is peaceful in every respect, and indisputably nothing to do with a missile test. It is a legitimate exercise by the DPRK of its inalienable sovereign right to peaceful exploration of outer use, universally shared by every member of the world community, including the U.S., China, Russia, Japan and France. No country, be it the US, Japan, south Korea, or any other Western nation, has any right to take issue with the satellite launch.
^ They nailed that one right on the head.
The reaction of the U.S., Japan and south Korea to the planned satellite launch could be called a Pavlov's dog-like conditioned response, or at best as that of a deer in the headlights.
^ Fair enough. One "caprice" for another.
Any U.S. threat to invalidate the nuclear deal would only serve to make the Barack Obama administration look like a cranky dodo. It will also prompt the DPRK government to retract its promise to place a moratorium on nuclear and missile tests, suspend uranium enrichment, and give international inspectors access to the uranium enrichment plant.
Successful launch of Kwangmyongsong-3 will proudly herald and highlight North Korea as a new Asian economic tiger and a new member of the elite club of economic powers.
