Statement by Pentagon spokesman
Capt. Jeff Davis on North Korea ICBM launch

DoD Press Release
Release No: NR-279-17
July 28, 2017

The U.S. Department of Defense detected and tracked a single North Korea missile launch today at about 10:41 a.m. EDT. We assess that this missile was an intercontinental ballistic missile, as had been expected.

The missile was launched from Mupyong-ni and traveled about 1000 km before splashing down in the Sea of Japan. We are working with our interagency partners on a more detailed assessment.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America.

Our commitment to the defense of our allies, including the Republic of Korea and Japan, in the face of these threats, remains ironclad. We remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies from any attack or provocation.

North Korea Claims All of U.S. in Strike Range as Trump Says China Has Done ‘Nothing’

SEOUL/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – North Korea said on Saturday it had conducted another successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that proved its ability to strike America’s mainland, drawing a sharp warning from U.S. President Donald Trump and a rebuke from China.

However, later on Saturday Trump wrote on Twitter that he was “very disappointed” in China and that Beijing had done “nothing” for the United States in regards to North Korea, something he would not allow to continue.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un personally supervised the midnight launch of the missile on Friday night and said it was a “stern warning” for the United States that it would not be safe from destruction if it tries to attack, the North’s official KCNA news agency said.

North Korea’s state television broadcast pictures of the launch, showing the missile lifting off in a fiery blast in darkness and Kim cheering with military aides.

“The test-fire reconfirmed the reliability of the ICBM system, demonstrated the capability of making a surprise launch of the ICBM in any region and place any time, and clearly proved that the whole U.S. mainland is in the firing range of the DPRK missiles, (Kim) said with pride,” KCNA said. (DPRK is short for the North’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.)

China, the North’s main ally, said it opposed North Korea’s “launch activities that run counter to Security Council resolutions and the common wishes of the international community.”

A foreign ministry statement added: “At the same time, China hopes all parties act with caution, to prevent tensions from continuing to escalate, to jointly protect regional peace and stability.”

In a tweet, Trump said, “I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet…”

“…they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!” he said in a subsequent tweet.

North Korea said Sunday that its latest long-range missile test was a “stern warning” to the U.S. over Washington’s bolstered sanctions push and said it would respond with a “resolute act of justice” if provoked militarily.

“In case the U.S. fails to come to its own senses and continues to resort to military adventure and ‘tough sanctions,’ the DPRK will respond with its resolute act of justice ,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying in a dispatch Sunday.

In total, the North has been slapped with six sets of U.N. sanctions since it first tested a nuclear weapon in 2006. Two resolutions adopted last year had significantly tightened that sanctions regime.

Having General Kelly become the top in-house advisor and chief of staff to Trump right now makes absolute sense given the raised and continued threat of North Korea to our own country and that of our Pacific allies.

We can only pray that his calm yet stern organizational leadership in the White House brings control out of chaos and provides much-needed guidance on the North Korean threat. At a time when military assessment of the world’s looming war problems has been heightened, having military guidance both in the White House and in other executive branches is a comfort.  

Hopefully President Trump will listen carefully and thoughtfully to these men before making any statements and advancing any options that could have worldwide implications.

This is simply one of many issues that MSM has been ignoring in favor of their diatribe against President Trump. The Democrat crap is getting beyond old and moving into the dangerous gray area where coups and internal treasonous acts need to be considered and acted upon.

  1. Wise Owl says:

    I fully concur, Uriel. I have been saying that the Democrats’ interference with the Trump government borders treason for quite some time, as is the MSM’s LIES. I have struggled to come up with a rule/law that would prosecute the MSM for lying to us, but don’t know how to do so without stepping on the 1st Amendment. The REALLY sad thing is that the liberals (and sadly, many conservatives) believe the bullshit. As a nation, we are WAY too easily manipulated due to our ignorance of civics, history, and politics.

    • Uriel says:

      True which we have turned a blind eye to being taught in our educational systems for decades. About the only way to solve the MSM is to continue to hammer at them financially through boycotts and ratings. I think CNN is already in deep trouble on this.

  2. Wendy says:

    Little Kim Dumb Ass over there in N. Korea, needs to watch his fat back. Super Dictators don’t last well in Countries where people want freedom from govt. so badly!!! I wish The People could just take him out and stomp on him. Be gone Kim Wacko!!!

  3. Uriel says:

    You know Wendy I would say so as well EXCEPT like any radicalization premise, these people have been brought up since birth to believe Kim and his regime are “a god” and they are extremely fervent (or dead).

    About time Japan kicked in some support for the SEATO. WWII has been over for more years than even Hillary has been on the planet….

  5. Hardnox says:

    Our allies cannot sit on the sidelines waiting for big brother to make decisions. Meanwhile our idiot Congress pissed off the Russians with new sanctions. Congratulations assholes! That could easily backfire. I’m not suggesting that the Russians are good guys but why tie Trump’s hands right now?

    The whole premiss is because the Russians attempted to meddle in our elections. That’s laughable at best given our meddling in everyone else’s elections, particularly during Batear’s tenure… who is incidentally hiding out in Indonesia which does not have extradition with the USA.

  6. Navyvet says:

    “North Korea’s “launch activities that run counter to Security Council resolutions..” Bwahaha. Can anyone name a more useless organization on the face of the earth. Kim Jung Un (whatever) may be a clown but he knows that the UN is a bunch of phony blowhard do nothing buffoons. Next time I get a parking ticket, rather than pay the $25.00 I’d rather have a resolution passed by the Useless Nations condemning me for not plugging the meter. Like all their resolutions, it would make good asswipe. Whyinell the US wastes it’s taxpayers money on that POS is beyond my comprehension.

    • Uriel says:

      about the only reason….is to at least have a smidgeon of strength in push to shove idiocy of these people….even war requires someone to play advocate inside the enemies walls.
