Rodong or Nodong?

The NYT has a wonderful pargraph in its print edition today:

The other missiles that the North fired appeared to be a mix of short-range Nodong missiles, of the kind the North has sold to Iran, Pakistan and other nations.

In the online edition, the missiles are now called Rodong. But the 620-mile Nodong clearly exists. Let us now praise silly names for weapons and the fact that missiles of mass murderers manage to live up to them.
