In an interesting example of life imitating art, the events unfolding in North Korea this week are directly paralleling those that I envisioned in my book, The Alexandria Project. 

Specifically, if you’ve been watching the news, the North Koreans intend to launch a new, three stage missile which they say is intended to put a communications satellite into orbit.

North Korea’s missile program places other nations in the same quandary that Iran's neighbors face in connection with that country's nuclear development program. Should they act now to prevent Iran from possibly earning a place in the nuclear weapons club, or just wait and see?
