Space Rockets are not the same as Nuclear Missiles
Most recently, President Obama spoke of reducing world nuclear weapons proliferation, their continued development, and related technological threats as an obvious reference in time and issue with North Korea’s intent to enter space with a satellite.
Perhaps one should seriously wonder why any satellite launch should be at this time an issue?
Space rocket technology is vastly different from that of missile technology especially when dealing with weapons related payloads. Many staged rockets are designed to enter space with limited payloads such as lighter surveillance and/ or communication devices. This requires an incredible amount of energy, thrust, and fuel with respect to gravity. A nuclear armed missile also requires an incredible amount of energy but its technology is vastly limited to its latitude and termination rather than its amplitude, altitude and function.
Space bombs, if developed, can be used to wipe out solid state and other communication systems although such technology is clearly not being demonstrated by the North Koreans in this case.
To the brain-dead American media:
A NUCLEAR MISSILE DOES NOT REQUIRE THE SAME TECHNOLOGY AS A SPACE BOUND MULTISTAGE ROCKET! WHAT NORTH KOREA IS DOING IS NOT ILLEGAL, IRRESPONSIBLE, NOR IMMORAL!
Perhaps what the American media is doing (if honest) is immoral with respect to the real issue concerning North Korea’s peaceful intent to enter space with its own satellite. To infer that this has anything what so ever to do with nuclear proliferation (see Obama’s related speech) is irresponsible furthering unnecessary tensions between the United States, North Korea, and perhaps to a very limited extent, China.
If President Obama is serious about disarming the world of its nuclear threat, we should then be with him body, spirit, and soul. He should immediately begin to influence Israel with its vast and dangerous arsenal of nuclear weaponry that could one day be preemptively used against a peaceful Iran.
Ethically, the United States and its presidential speech writers should remember that it remains to this day as the only country in the world to have used nuclear bombs to kill innocent civilians (see Japan).
