Waiting on North Korea's Missile

This is a waiting game no one is eager to play. North Korea is set to launch a rocket or missile in the next five days, but after Saturday passed with little fanfare, many are wondering when, or if, the act will occur. President Obama said, on Friday, that a launch by North Korea would be “provocative” and would come with consequences. “Should North Korea decide to take this action, we will work...to take appropriate steps to let North Korea know that it can't threaten the safety and security of other countries with impunity,” said the President. Authorities in Japan, which has threatened to shoot down the missile, initially said they detected the launch but, apparently, spoke too soon and took back their claim.
