North Korean Symbolism … North Korean Satellite Spinning Out of Control, Much Like the Country
What a perfect metaphor …
Let this be an example of you might want to wait to make sure all is ok before you get overly joyful. The North Korean regime was all gleeful when it was first reported that they had successfully shot a satellite into orbit. Not so fast my friend. NBC News is now reporting that the satellite is now spinning out of control. Looks like it is back to the drawing board.
The object that North Korea sent into space on Wednesday appears to be “tumbling out of control” as it orbits the earth, U.S. officials told NBC News.
The officials said that it is indeed some kind of space vehicle, but they still haven’t been able to determine exactly what the satellite is supposed to do.
In a statement, the White House said the rocket launch was a highly provocative act that threatens regional security and violates U.N. resolutions.
The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday condemned the launch, calling it a “clear violation” of U.N. resolutions. A spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he “deplores” the launch.
