    Satellite photos detect activity at North Korea missile bases

    Filed under: — Steve @ 4:03 am

    Well, as most of us suspected, the North Korean governement isn’t going to stop being crazy and is preparing to carry out more missle test. And on top of this, China has introduced a non-binding resolution at the U.N. against North Korea. A binding U.N. resolution doesn’t carry any teeth, so I guess a non-binding one isn’t even worth the paper it’s written on.

    TOKYO (AFP) – North Korea could be preparing for new launches of mid-range missiles following last week’s tests, with activity detected at its bases, a report has said citing Japanese government sources.
    US and Japanese satellite photos show that mid-range Rodong missiles had been set up on launch pads at a base in southeastern North Korea, but were later removed, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper reported.
    Fuel tanks could be seen near the launch pads, the report said.
    The report said the satellite photos were taken after last week’s tests of seven missiles, but did not give a specific date.
    “We think North Korea can launch missiles whenever it wishes,” the top-selling daily quoted a government source as saying.
    Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso on Sunday suggested Tokyo would have the right to launch a pre-emptive strike to protect its citizens from a missile launch by Pyongyang.
    He said there were “visible signs” of activity at a North Korean missile base from which North Korea launched a Rodong missile last week.
    Japan submitted a draft binding resolution in the United Nations Security Council that would impose sanctions on North Korea over the missile tests.
    But on Monday, the Security Council put off a vote on the resolution to allow more time for Chinese diplomatic efforts to defuse the crisis.

    Illegal Immigration Bills Passed in Colorado

    Filed under: — Steve @ 3:54 am

    I hope the federal governments figures this illegal immigration thing out soon. The states are taking matters into their own hands in order to protect their citizens and legal immigrants.

    State lawmakers approved a measure late Monday that would force a million people receiving state or federal aid to verify their citizenship, part of a package of bills dealing with illegal immigration that Democrats called the toughest in the nation.
    The measure would deny most non-emergency state benefits to illegal immigrants 18 years old and older _ forcing people to prove legal residency when applying for benefits or renewing their eligibility. The measure passed the state Senate 22-13 and the House 48-15. Both are controlled by Democrats.
    “At the end of the day, everybody who serves in this building as senators or representatives knows we’re making Colorado history,” said the bill’s sponsor, Senate President Joan Fitz-Gerald. “We want to be able to look in the mirror and say we did legislation that is tough, enforceable and humane.”
    Republicans said the bill didn’t go far enough, and left glaring loopholes, including allowing benefits for minors and denying voters the chance to have a direct say on the issue.
    The bill would apply to Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment insurance, energy assistance programs and aging and adult services. Republican Gov. Bill Owens said an estimated 50,000 illegal immigrants could be thrown out of those programs.
    “It simply puts teeth into existing federal regulations,” Owens said.
    Sen. Dan Grossman was one of the four Democrats to vote against the measure.
    “I don’t think the poor people of the state of Colorado or businesses of the state of Colorado should have to pay because we want to play politics with immigration,” Grossman said.
