HONOLULU: United States forces along the Korean penninsula readied their plans to watch the test of the North Korean rocket launch early next week.
"We have spent the past few weeks fine-tuning our positions and movements for the rocket test. These plans had been created for a previous test but were never used, so we have decided to go ahead with them next week." said one commander stationed in Seoul.
The plans (shown at right) involve various troop movements in the direction of Pyongyang, which the US states is the prime location to watch the launch take place. Once there, the various groups will have to jockey to find the best viewing spot.
The US also claims that 99% of the forces in and around North Korea will be composed of photographers and scientists from NASA, who will be monitoring the launch and various satellites near the rocket's path.
"The majority of the troops will turn around once the test is over, but forces from the South will move through Pyongyang in order to board the waiting naval ships that will take them to the Pacific." a General reported, "It's a simple plan, really, and the North Koreans shouldn't mind us viewing a satellite launch."
