Regarding the March 21 Kyodo article “Patriot missiles may be deployed in Okinawa to counter North Korean rocket“: Why is there such an overreaction to this planned satellite launch?

Do you think North Korea would [react in this way]? Japan, the United States and other Western countries are letting the imaginations of their leaders run away with them.

Why can’t North Korea launch a satellite? Did anybody oppose Japan’s space program when it started? This is 2012 and you expect other countries not to advance themselves? Japan, like the U.S., is afraid of its own shadow!
