Experts expect North Korea to fire multiple missiles as tests

North Korea appears to be positioning missiles for firing, with one already apparently in position. In spite of the military maneuvers and harsh rhetoric, most South Koreans don't take North Korea's threats seriously. CNN has the story:

North Korea has raised at least one missile into its upright firing position, feeding concerns that a launch is imminent, a U.S. official told CNN Thursday.

This comes as the world continued to keep watch for a possible missile launch by the secretive government, and a day before U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to arrive in the region.

In the latest daily tough talk from the North, a government agency is quoted by the state-run media as saying that "war can break out any moment."

The South Koreans — who've heard the cross-border bombast before — are taking the swagger in stride. Washington regards much of the North's saber rattling as bluster.
