Obama’s First Crisis?

Might this be the world crisis that, during the campaign, Joe Biden warned about? The Times of London reports that “North Korea is preparing to test fire a long range missile capable of striking the United States.” South Korean officials claim to have seen satellite images of a long cylindrical object being transported, by train, through the North Korean countryside. It is believed that the test will not happen for another month or two, and that the missile is a Taepodong-2, which is capable of striking Hawaii or Alaska. Meanwhile, Iran is also looking beyond Obama's initial honeymoon period: they launched a homemade satellite.
