Missed? Iranian Advisers Helped North Koreans With Missile Launch

Dated from March 30, but I don't remember seeing it. Old but somehow new?

A group of Iranian missile experts is in North Korea to help Pyongyang prepare for a missile launch intended to challenge US President Barack Obama as he attends the G20 summit in London.

North Korea has said it will launch a communications satellite over northern Japan between Saturday and the following Wednesday, and Japanese media reports yesterday said a 15-strong Iranian delegation had been in the country since the beginning of this month.

The Iranian party includes senior officials with Iranian rocket and satellite producer Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group, the reports said.

The Iranians brought a letter from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il stressing the importance of co-operating on space technology.

And how is Obama's tough, smart diplomacy doing with the Mullahs? Awesome, thanks for asking! Obama's not imposing preconditions on the mullahs but they're imposing preconditions on him: They want the idea that they'll suspend enrichment during the early phases of negotiations scrapped, before they even begin negotiating at all. And the O-Team is considering it, which means they've already decided to make the concession.

Thanks to Anti-Harkonen Freedom Fighter Geoff for the old-but-new tip.

And Even More Diplomacy: North Korea walks away from six party talks.

Gee, one would almost begin to suspect these people aren't interested in talking to come to any resolution, but simply talking and talking and talking as a stalling tactic.
