North Korea Launches Missile over Japan!

Monday morning, North Korea launched an unidentified missile that flew directly over Japan toward the United States. This is another attempt from Kim Jong Un to try to intimidate the US. The missile fell apart over Hokkaido, Japan, NHK reported They broke into three pieces and fell into waters off the Japanese’s east coast. In addition to this failed missile test, South Korean officials said Pyongyang may be preparing its sixth nuclear weapon test. The Korean National Intelligence Service (NIS) in Seoul met with South Korean lawmakers in a private parliamentary session and told the leadership that it has been detecting signs that North Korea was preparing for another nuclear test at its Punggye-ri underground test site. Kim Byung-kee, a lawmaker of South Korea’s ruling Democratic Party (DP) said the NIS reported that North Korea “has completed its preparation to carry out a nuclear test at Tunnel 2 and Tunnel 3 of the Punggye-ri nuclear test site.” He added the NIS said it had detected activity suggesting Tunnel 4 was being prepared for more construction work after excavation work was halted last year.

The alarms sounded in Tohoku Japan, where residents were being told to take shelter in basements and bunkers. According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap, North Korea also ‘fired an “unidentified projectile” from Pyongyang in the East Sea direction at around 5:57 a.m’ No injuries have reported as of yet.

Will Ripley of CNN News (I hate quoting these fake news broadcasters but…) reported Monday, North Korean officials said the US faces strong punishment for conducting its current US-South Korea military games on the peninsula. The 10-day Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercises began August 21. These exercises are conducted annually by South Korea and the United States as defense practicing.
But North Korean officials told Ripley this year’s exercises come at the “worst possible moment” of tension.
If there is an escalation, with any “catastrophic consequences, the Americans would be wholly responsible,” the officials said.
Meanwhile North Korea has continued to test a variety of missiles, including a triple launch on Saturday.
The three missiles fired by Pyongyang in that test were short-range Scud missiles, Gen. Jeong Kyeong-doo, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Monday.
South Korea’s presidential office said on Saturday that officials initially believed North Korea could have fired 300mm rocket artillery from a multiple rocket launcher.
A South Korean official said US and South Korean authorities were continuing their analysis of Saturday’s launch, which saw two missiles travel 250 kilometers (155 miles) over the ocean and another explode shortly after liftoff.
It’s the first missile test since North Korea launched successfully launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July which is said could reach as far as the US mainland.

  1. I would like for our president to quit wasting time an put our star wars acapabilities back in space.,knock out any missiles North Korea Launches, worn them to Destroy there nuclear and missiles .They have a little time to do so.If not ,We take out all there capabilities, then send ground troops to go get him.and change him of being a tremendous threat to the world and other countries have something to say about it. They’re supporting the threat,and we and other countries will soon cut them off the main commodities they may really need in the future to keep there country running

  2. Just my thoughts, to shoot down a missile before it’s armed may not be possible. As noted in the article you would have to know the time of launch, the trajectory, and a lot of other factors. To arm a missile at launch puts the sender at risk should there be a failure. Arming the missile when out of harm’s way from the sender makes the most sense. Arming it too early leaves time for the target to take defensive measures. Once the defensive measures are in place and the missile is shot down, armed, the warhead would then detonate and cause radiation in the atmosphere endangering bot h the sender and the defender. THERE ARE NO WINNERS. The only true defense is to prevent the launch from occurring. To my mind the only thing that makes sense is the regime of Kim Ju Dung must be eliminated.
