On other hand we have TSP with more than reasonable qty of warheads being produced but with shoddy long range missiles( eg. recent Hatf-V test ).
So is it possible that these two rogue states TSP and NoKo are busy mfg one side of the WMD systems? NoKo for the launchers and TSP for the payloads?
Looks like the space launch is not a complete success, but there are some scary implications.
North Korea’s Satellite Is Out of Control: Why This Is Very Bad News
We can track small pieces of debris, but space crashes generate particles that we can't monitor. The thousands of objects that may result from such an accident put other satellites, spaceships and the lives of astronauts at risk.
The other bad news is that, while nobody really knows if this is a satellite or not, all countries are assuming it has been an attempt to disguise the test of a three-stage intercontinental ballistic missile. One that can easily reach the United States or Russia. And it worked.
The only bit of good news is that the lack of precision that probably led to a spinning satellite is proof of North Koreans' ineptitude when it comes to design and control these long-range weapons. Putting an ICBM in space is not all you need to, say, drop a couple of nuclear warheads over Los Angeles. You need precision guiding systems for that, something that Kim Jong-Un's boffins don't seem to have mastered quite yet.
