In the latest firing of a missile, North Korea has shown that it is more and more like a child testing its boundaries. The problem is North Korea is NOT a child and its toy of choice is a powerful weapon that could even if misfired could potentially harm billions of people. Actions have consequences and in a world playground, those consequences can have far-reaching results that even their staunchest allies (if there are any) realize even if they do not.
North Korea Launches Another Missile Over Japan,
South Korea Issues Strong Response
September 15, 2017
North Korea launched another ballistic missile Friday over Japan capable of reaching the U.S. territory of Guam.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un called the most recent missile test over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaidoa a “shining victory in the standoff with the United States,” declaring that the U.S. is in “mortal fear” of North Korea, according to the Daily Mail.
North Korea has launched two missiles that flew over Japan in less than a month, and the first since the United Nations voted unanimously less than a week ago to place aggressive sanctions on the regime.
South Korea president Moon Jae-in warned that further acts of aggression could result in the “complete destruction,” of North Korea.
“In case North Korea undertakes provocations against us or our ally, we have the power to destroy (the North) beyond recovery,” Moon Jae-in said.
Moon Jae-in reportedly assembled his National Security Council shortly after the launch, where he said North Korea had once again breached United Nations Security Council resolutions.
He said the latest missile “poses a grave challenge to the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and the global community.”
“I sternly condemn and express anger at this series of provocations by the North,” he said.
South Korea’s military reported the missile, which is believed to be an intercontinental ballistic missile, traveled roughly 2,300 miles.
Guam is 2,100 miles from North Korea, indicating the regime is capable of reaching the U.S. territory.
Japan’s Minister of Defense Itsunori Onodera said it has become evident North Korea has Guam on its mind following the latest missile launch.
“We cannot assume North Korea’s intention, but given what it has said, I think it has Guam in mind,” Onodera said.
CNN reported South Korea conducted a “live fire drill” immediately after reports of North Korea’s launch to test their readiness to an attack.
South Korea launched their own missile test, which South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said could reach the Sunan airport near Pyongyang that was used for Friday’s launch.
North Korea conducted a sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3, where they tested a hydrogen bomb so powerful the explosion created a magnitude 6.3 tremor.
The hydrogen bomb was reportedly the most powerful weapon North Korea has ever tested.
What was not mentioned but should also have been noted was that the flight path of that missile had it been short might have impacted Japan not too far from one of its most vulnerable, unstable areas which has been racked by multiple catastrophic earthquakes and has a delicate balance going right now on its nuclear plant — Fukushima. A hit anywhere near epicenters of those earthquakes or along the unstable Pacific Rim region there might have set off a massive chain of geological reactions. That is my take, not a scientific one, but certainly a serious one to consider.
Compare the two maps.
As much as I am worried about war or Russian and Chinese aggression in response to a strike, thinking about an entire planet and its destruction from such a careless and childish regime is beyond terrifying.
For people so hell-bent on “climate change”, you would think world leaders and scientists would be screaming bloody murder over the actions we are seeing from North Korea.
Goes to show that socialists and the UN who use climate change as a meme aren’t even the least bit worried apparently considering the lack of mainstream coverage about the destruction of our planet by a madman with a predilection for demented behavior.
If they were, they would haul all of the members of that regime into the world court in chains to stand trial (or eliminate them right off) and destroy every vestige of nuclear arsenal or industry they could find in the country.
Russia and China should also mull over that real issue as well. It isn’t just the immediate vicinity that would suffer. The whole globe would feel the effects. This isn’t about backing a country run by hardcore communists comrades. It is about a LOT more than that.
