North Korea's fails rocket launch--good!

I'm just one of the citizens all over Asia and the world (except North Korea's leadership and military) who is happy that North Korea's rocket that it was supposed to launch into orbit the other day did not fly (well, it had flown for like a minute, according a news account I read) but instead swam. Dived right into the sea. That rocket was supposed to bring a satellite into space (or something like that) according to NK authorities, but NK's neighboring countries were especially wary that it was could be connected to a missile test or an actual missile itself by NK. These countries had also taken precautions days ahead because of the supposed debris to fall off the rocket once it was zooming up to the sky while passing through the airspace of its neighbors.

I hope that NK despite its supposedly failed rocket launch will stop any moves deemed adversarial by other countries. It may have isolated itself in most ways from the rest of the world but I hope its leadership will still remember that, like the rest of humanity, they're still humans and have responsibilities to their fellow humans (in their own country and globally) in keeping this Earth safe and peaceful.
