Defiant North Korea’s Failed Missile Test
South Korea reported that North Korea had in deed fired a missile, and that it had exploded on the launch pad. This defiant act is why there is so much tension with the US, and its allies. It is yet to be seen what the US, or even China will do now that Kim Jong Un has shown that he does not care of the warnings by both big brother China, or President Trump. By Kim ordering that missile, regardless of the fact that it didn’t make it, is crossing the Red Line, and should be dealt with, because if it would have launched the US, and Japanese military would have acted on their threat. China should be worried that Kim is as crazy as everyone thought, and is ready to go to war.
North Korea attempted to launch the missile from the eastern coast in a city called Sinpo. This is now the second failed test from Sinpo this month, as the first was shortly after a meeting President Trump had held with Chinese Premier Xi.
Defense Secretary Mattis commented that “The president and his military team are aware of North Korea’s most recent unsuccessful missile launch. The president has no further comment.”
