The U.S.Japan and the U.N. strongly condemned the tests, which they say violated a commitment on the part of Pyongyang to a long-standing moratorium on missile tests. The moratorium went into effect after the failed launch of Taepodong 1 missile over Japan in 1998.[1]

Homefront timeline story 3

Critics in the U.S. rebutted on South Korea's claims and clarifying the Korean economic problems stemming from re-integrating millions of poor, unskilled North Koreans into the regional economy. Many South Koreans believes the U.S./South Korea military alliance has lost its value, and that the U.S. military presence in the country is no longer needed.[10]

December 3rdEdit

  • A series of reforms aimed at stomping speculation in the sector, enacted after the wild price spikes in 2008, temporarily appeared to smooth out fluctuations in the market. However, a cascade of unforeseen events (including a strike in Venezuela and ongoing political instability in Nigeria) cause analysts to question the global market's ability to keep pace with demand, and result in oil prices as low as $70 a barrel and as high as $200, making it difficult to say how a market as essential to global economic health will weather any additional instability. Analysts also fear that as demand returns and supply cannot be met, prices will skyrocket out of control, further depressing the global economy, and major American automobile manufacturers are feeling the crunch as demand for personal vehicles has bottomed out, possibly affecting other petroleum dependent sectors.[11]

TriviaEdit

May it be noted that the backstories of games produced by Kaos studios somehow coincidentally, yet rarely predict future events. The actual death of Kim Jong-Il occured only a month before the prediction in the game's backstory. In the game Frontlines: Fuel of War, also made by Kaos, an epidemic was predicted to occur in 2009. This game was released in 2007, the Swine Flu epidemic followed in 2009.
