Report: North Korea launches short-range missiles

North Korea launched three short-range guided missiles into the sea off the Korean Peninsula's east coast Saturday, South Korea's semi-official news agency Yonhap cited the South Korean Defense Ministry as saying.

The ministry said it had detected two launches in the morning, followed by another in the afternoon, Yonhap reported.

The missiles were fired in a northeasterly direction, away from South Korean waters, the ministry said.

South Korea has beefed up monitoring on North Korea and is maintaining a high-level of readiness to deal with any risky developments, the ministry added, according to Yonhap.

    Hamsta's baggin it big time. The last time he saw his tiny thing was in 1963 using a mirror in a Vietnam brothel.
    It ain't been seen since but he knows it is still there from the tingling sensation when he goes pee.

      Clever. Well not so much. Instead of addressing his arguments you embrace hate. Typical of the socialist party in America. California is a nice place to visit but would never live there because of the afore mentioned by Hamsta. Anti. What is your opinion of California's problems? Enlighten me please.

      So now we got the White House chief lawyer admitting he knew about the IRS scandal a month ago yet obozo contends he didn't know about it until a week later. Does this man not confer with his boss on important matters or is obozo a habitual liar? I'll take the last choice

That's $24000 total. All this while not working. Livin the American dream off of others. And people say I'm an idiot. Hahaha. Jokes on u buddy. I'm goin gety nails done now. Have a nice day suckers!

    Good morning all.
    On N.Korea that 'great proponent of insanity' and profiteer Dick Cheney who should have by now been indicted for crimes against the state & humanity had this to say in a warning to GOP "we are in deep doo doo".

    Some good tidings now on a 'doo doo' that Bush Inc. landed us into. "The Afghan war may be, will end by 2024". A report today says.
    Thats an improvement on estimates by this very same Cheney who wanted us there for 'a 100 yrs'.
