: North Korea's at it again, chunking stuff into the sea. That "stuff" was actually two ballistic missiles
, fired off the Korean peninsula's west coast early this morning. The South Koreans, who have to monitor such things, said one missile went 800 kilometers (that's almost 500 miles for non-metric folks) east toward the sea, while the other disappeared from radar about 17 kilometers (10 miles) up. Cue the usual wailing and gnashing of teeth from the U.S., the U.N., Japan, China ... you get the picture.
