North Korea Launches Missile Test

In less than 12 hours after the announcement of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il's death, the North has taken to provocative action. The communist state has launched a short range missile test, seemingly to ward off any action by South Korea or her allies.

This action is making an already tense situation even more so. Still, it's a pretty clear sign of desperation.

A short-range missile test that North Korea conducted Monday – reported earlier by South Korean media – was not a surprise and is not of particular concern, Dempsey said. South Korean media have reported that South Korean government officials do not believe the test was related to Kim Jong Il's death.
