Sunday. The White House chief of staff, Andrew Card Jr., confirmed
the launch, but did not seem to think the launch was militarily
"We're not surprised by this. The North Koreans have tested
their missiles before," said Card to CNN. "I think they're looking

There is growing frustration among some nations since six-nation
talks with North Korea have been stalled for nearly a year. There
is concern that North Korea could mount a nuclear warhead on a
long-range missile able to strike American territory. Card said
Sunday, "We don't know that he can, but there is increasing
evidence of capability."
The missile was reported to be a Russian Made SS21 with a 75
mile range or a version of the Silkworm with a 63 mile range
according to Japan's national Asahi newspaper.
"The missile that North Korea recently fired is a short-range
missile and is far from the one that can carry a nuclear weapon,"
said South Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Song Min-soon to South
Korea's Yonhap news agency. "This isn't a case to be linked to the
