Launching Satellites Of Peace?

The government of North Korea has been actually working  in a cooperative manner with American diplomats in order to open some form of relationship that is not based on antagonism between adversaries. After announcing a launch of a satellite, the North Koreans announced an invitation to UN inspectors to monitor their nuclear facilities including aspects of the bilateral agreement with the USA.

Kim Jong un assumed power in December and it is wise to allow him an opportunity to demonstrate changes in his nation’s relations with the outside world. OK, they are launching a satellite. Keep focused on cooperation with UN inspectors and expressing desires for normal relations. Those are the issues about which we should be concerned.
