    Several experts believe missiles that North Korea paraded this month in Pyongyang are fakes because a closer study of photographs of the weapons reveals odd inconsistencies in their design. Experts spotted a number of strange features on the purported missiles. For instance, the warheads do not appear capable of separating from the missiles, a key stage in ensuring proper flight. The question that remains is whether the missiles were mockups of a real missile that is being developed or simply phony missiles wheeled out for show.

    North Korea’s nuclear test: Third time unlucky?
    12 February 2013 - Widely tagged as unpredictable, sometimes North Korea is anything but. In 2006 and 2009, it launched long-range rockets. The latter, but not the former, was claimed as a satellite launch.

    Feb 14,`13 -- For the past decade, the world's most powerful nations have turned to sanctions in an attempt to punish North Korea for a series of rocket launches and nuclear tests. Their stated goal: to stop North Korea's march toward acquiring an arsenal of nuclear-armed long-range missiles.

    Beijing's condemnation of North Korea’s behaviour is obviously a half-hearted gesture to assuage the international community's anxiety over its Communist ally's nuclear programme and the Chinese government’s official news agency praised North Korea’s “determination to fight against the hostile policies of the United States and Japan with more powerful means.” It's natural that China stands firm with North Korea rather than playing a prominent role in resolving the nuclear crisis as expected, considering its traditional hostility towards the US and Japan.
