Chuck Fleischmann comments on the North Korean rocket launch

CHATTANOOGA – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann issued the following statement following reports of the launch of a North Korean rocket.

“Just over a month after agreeing with President Obama not to develop their nuclear program or test missiles, North Korea test launched a rocket potentially capable of delivering a nuclear weapon to American soil.  The fact that the launch failed is little comfort: As long as they keep developing these weapons it is only a matter of time until they succeed.  It is time for the United States and our allies to send a clear message to North Korea that this behavior will not be tolerated.” Fleischmann said.
