North Korea launches ballistic missile, ends in failure


North Korea
launched another missile early Saturday morning, making it the regime’s third successive, yet
unsuccessful missile test since April. According to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of
Staff, the missile launch took place near Bukchang in Pyeongannam-do Province, just
north of Pyongyang at 5:30 a.m, South Korea time. The South Korean military labeled the test
a failure as the missile initially flew in a northeasterly direction, reached an altitude
of 71 kilometers, and exploded in the air minutes after launch.. the pieces falling
into the East Sea. The U.S. Pacific Command also confirmed the
missile did not leave North Korean territory and did not pose a threat to North America. The allies say they are analyzing additional
information, but there’s speculation the missile might have been a KN-15 intermediate-range
ballistic missile, which Pyongyang calls the Pukguksong-2. A U.S. official, who asked not to be named,
said the missile could’ve also been a medium-range ballistic missile called a KN-17, a new Scud-type
missile developed by North Korea. The launch comes amid heightening tensions
in the region, as the U.S docked a nuclear powered submarine in South Korea, deployed
the U.S. naval strike group, led by the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier to the area,
and staged large military drills with South Korea and Japan. Seoul’s foreign ministry has strongly condemned
North Korea,… saying the missile launch was a clear violation of UN resolutions, a
grave threat to regional peace and security. (KOREAN)
“This was a frontal attack to the international community’s resolution to denuclearize the
Korean peninsula, which displayed the belligerence and imprudence of Pyongyang.” U.S. President Donald Trump also reprimanded
the missile launch through Twitter, describing it as North Korea “disrespecting” China and
its President Xi Jinping. Japan also denounced the launch as absolutely
unacceptable and a violation of UN resolutions. There was no immediate reaction from China. The launch is North Korea’s 50th-known round
of ballistic missile firing since Kim Jong-un took power in late 2011. Hwang Hojun, Arirang News.

  1. Only one thing to do now! Fat-boy Kim Jong-un will have to order execution of one out of ten of his rocket scientists as a warning to the rest of them. We should applaud the move, as eventually North Korea will have no more rocket scientists.

  2. Lol I like Trump`s approach 🙂 It bothers China that he does missile tests 😛 China was never bothered ! USA was !

  3. Do you all realize that all the missile launches you just saw have nothing to do with the REAL test? So why showing all those launches? so It appears like a "Threat"? Nope It's not.

  4. Let's see does north Korea want to be hit by a Atomic bomb or a Hydrogen Bomb or maybe a Neutron Bomb 🤔 So many choices!

  5. the regime was creted to couse fear in its own people just like all bad dictators and mad presidents of the free world it is going to happen wether or not you think it is unavoidable.

  6. They're not missiles. They're rockets with cameras on them. They want to get high enough to confirm whether the earth is flat or not. UN do not want this to happen.
