Controversy over North Korean rocket launch

The world is watching North Korea and the launch of a controversial long-range rocket.

Even though there is international criticism, North Koreans are proceeding.

Their government said that the 90 ton rocket will launch a weather satellite into space.

They have invited dozens of foreign reporters to witness the liftoff, which is an uncommon move from the secretive nation and everyone is not buying it.

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton said, "North Korea is readying a long-range ballistic missile launch over the East China Sea. It comes just weeks after North Korea agreed to a moratorium on
missile testing. It violates multiple UN Security Council resolutions."

The North Korean government has had a bold stance in telling U.S. officials to relax.
