10:59PM EST December 11. 2012 - WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea's launch of a long-range rocket caught the world by surprise after the secretive regime in Pyongyang claimed technical issues had caused a delay.

North Korea declared Wednesday's launch of a rocket and satellite a success, but there was no immediate reaction from the U.S. government. Close U.S. allies South Korea and Japan confirmed the liftoff but were still assessing whether the launch succeeded.

An Obama administration official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said: "We noted the launch and we are monitoring the situation. We will have further official comment later." The official was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

On Saturday, North Korea had widened the dates during which it might conduct the launch of its Unha-3 rocket, citing a technical problem. Washington says the launch is a cover for testing technology for missiles that could be used to strike the United States. The previous four attempts all failed.

"It was a surprise in terms of the timing," said Bruce Bennett, senior defense analyst with RAND Corp. think tank. "They had talked about postponing for a week. To recover so quickly from technical problems suggests they have gotten good at putting together a missile."

North Korea has also conducted two nuclear tests since 2006, deepening international concern over its capabilities, although it is not believed to have mastered how to mount a nuclear warhead on a missile.

David Wright of the Union of Concerned Scientists said initial reports that debris from the rocket landed near the Philippines 14 minutes after launch suggested that the first two stages of the three-stage Unha-3 rocket may have worked.

The last launch of the Unha-3 in April failed about two minutes after takeoff but still drew U.N. Security Council condemnation and tightening of sanctions against North Korea.

The U.S., Japan and South Korea last week vowed to seek further Security Council action if the North conducted a launch. It remains to be seen if Russia and China, the North's main ally, will agree to further sanctions.

Bennett said North Korea also claimed successful launches of long-range rockets 1998 and 2006 that in fact failed, so their claims would have to be closely scrutinized.

But he added the fact they had proceeded with the launch Tuesday indicated they anticipated a better chance of success this time.

Victor Cha, a Korea expert at Georgetown University and former White House policy director for Asia, said a successful launch would be major national security concern for the United States.

He said there would still be technical hurdles for the North to overcome, particularly in terms of getting a rocket to re-enter the atmosphere, but it would mean that North Korea is able to launch a long-range ballistic missile — the first rival state to the U.S. do so since the Soviet Union and China.

Not sure who's crazier or more dangerous...the N Koreans or Muslim extremists.

Did anyone watch 60 mins 2 weeks ago?  They did a story about a mid 20s guy who was born and raised in a prison camp.  He even turned in his own mother and brother to camp officials who shot them for a failed attempt to escape.  His biggest dream was to eat chicken. yep, chicken.  He ate gruel every day.

What they can do to their own ppl is monstrous so I'm not putting anything past them in terms of starting a nuclear war.

the U.S. is so cautious with North Korea but i don't think they have the resources to really pull anything major off...unless they're bring helped.

eta:  aside from taking out u.s. citizens in s. korea.
