BREAKING: North Korea Launches It’s Missiles… DEVELOPING STORY…

By

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un must have been feeling a bit lonely, what with President Trump so focused of late on the Middle East, Europe and more domestic affairs.

So, he decided to ratchet up the tension in the Pacific again by hitting his little red launch button.

Early Thursday morning, North Korea fired a salvo of ballistic missiles in a test clearly meant to threaten the United States and our massive naval forces deployed near Japan.

From Newsmax:

The test comes the same day as Vice Admiral James Syring, the head of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, told the U.S. House Armed Services Committee that North Korea’s technological advances in its ballistic missile program in the past six months had caused him “great concern.”


Syring told a hearing of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee that it was incumbent on his agency to assume that North Korea today could “range” the United States with an intercontinental ballistic missile carrying a nuclear warhead.

“I would not say we are comfortably ahead of the threat; I would say we are addressing the threat that we know today,” Syring said.

Also this week, North Korea put on a massive military air show that included its fighter jets attacking and sinking American aircraft carriers.

The display clearly pleased Kim Jong-un very much.
