North Korea declared the launch of a satellite a success, and state television KCTV ran a brief report confirming as much on Wednesday morning.

Chinese netizens’s comments on Sina Weibo (over 13,800 shares, 3,000 comments):

    Dear Comrade,

    Under our Dear Leader’s guidance we will launch yet another missile successfully. Although we have shortage of food and materials, we are still able to launch this missile soon on the last triple date this century, 121212. Due to the aforementioned circumstances, our missile may result in misfire, but comrade, we can avoid the unavoidable by having faith in our Dear Leader. I have been practising very hard for this eventuality and if it does come my way during launching, SEE ME DUCK.

    My fellow countrymen, for your own safety, do practice to avoid the wild missile, remember, SEE ME DUCK.

    Just watch me carefully and practice it at home and at work, SEE ME DUCK.

    Finally, I can’t emphasise more on the the need to be vigilant during the missile launch and once again practice hard and look here, SEE ME DUCK.

    GOOD LUCK.
