Pyongyang, North Korea. North Korea just launched another missile in violation of UN resolutions and despite warnings from the United States and elsewhere. US intelligence, however, believes that the rocket fell apart harmlessly right after takeoff and was a complete and abject failure.
The launch was intended to bolster Kim Jong-un's standing with the military while simultaneously improving his dating prospects. Instead, it will likely be seen as an embarrassment and will result in the cessation of food aid for millions of starving North Koreans.
"Well, that sucked out loud," said a dispirited Kim Jong-un, "That's the last time I take Karl Rove's advice. Okay, back to Craig's List."
