Reports out of Japan are breaking that North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has fired another ballistic test missile said to have landed off the coast of Japan.
England’s Sun newspaper begins “TYRANNICAL Kim Jong-un has today fired another ballistic test missile thought to have landed off the coast of Japan.” We have additional adjectives to describe Kim.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said a meeting of the National Security Council would be convened. He said: “I have received information that North Korea once again conducted a missile firing.
“We will immediately analyze information and do our utmost to protect the safety of the Japanese people.”
Increasingly exasperated officials added to his statement with a warning that Japan “absolutely cannot tolerate” the North’s repeated provocations.
Not to embarrass officials of any nation including America, but all should stop saying what they will not tolerate when any objective observer of history would clearly see toleration over decades. The latest missile test is the 14th such test carried out by North Korea in 2017.
Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said the missile flew for about 45 minutes and appeared to have landed in the waters of Japan’s exclusive economic zone, but that there were no immediate reports of damage.
Suga added that the missile launch was unacceptable and in clear violation of UN resolutions, and said Japan had protested in the strongest possible terms.
US Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said: “I can confirm that we detected a launch of a ballistic missile from North Korea.
“We are assessing and will have more information soon.”
Pyongyang’s most recent ICBM test was launched on July 4 as a “present” for Donald Trump on Independence Day.
The ICBM was the first of its kind to be launched by the secret state and the test sent shockwaves across the world after the trigger-happy tyrant vowed to turn the US into a “pile of ash”.
Analysts say the “Hwasong 14” ICBM launched July 4 could be capable of reaching most of Alaska or possibly Hawaii if fired in an attacking trajectory. It was launched at a very steep angle, a technique called lofting, and reached a height of more than 2,500 kilometers (1,550 miles) before splashing down in the Pacific Ocean 930 kilometers (580 miles) away.
Today’s test could have been initiated by the North to mark the 64th anniversary of the end of the Korean War or some other bull hockey reason from a mind devoid of reason, but running the impoverished death camp of a nation.
Media reports in the rogue state suggested the launch was planned to mark its so-called “Victory Day” – the date it claims to have beaten the US in the war. These people twist history almost as much as Democrats.
North Korean Armed Forces Minister Pak Yong-sik said: “If enemies misunderstand our strategic status and stick to options of staging a pre-emptive nuclear attack against us, we will launch a nuclear attack on America’s heart as the most relentless punishment without warning or prior notice,” reported the official KCNA news agency.
That is a direct threat to America. This self-declared enemy may be an inbred, mentally ill, evil murderous thug, but he is threatening a first strike so 1.) End North Korea’s capacity to attack or 2.) Bend over and enjoy the fornication and radioactive future children.
There is only one way in the human experience to stop bullies: Pick your time and place and stand.
