North Korea threatens to go ballistic (figuratively)
Pyongyang wants an apology for all the condemnations it got over the projectile it shot over the East Sea (Sea of Japan) and into the Pacific Ocean.
North Korea has insisted that it was a peaceful test of a rocket used to put satellites in orbit. To underscore the amicable nature of the launch, the DPRK said it if it got no apology it would be forced to take self-defense measures, "including nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests."
