North Korea Biting Off More Than They Can Chew After Missile Launch
I know one thing for sure, North Korea has started to get back to their old way of doing things now that Joe Biden is in the White House.
While President Trump was in office, he had a good relationship with Kim Jong Un, but that relationship with the U.S. was completely severed once Joe Biden was placed in the Oval Office.
North Korea has started nuclear reactors and is now launching missiles once again. Something that hadn’t been done in a while. This missile launch was actually a violation of the UN Security Council resolutions.
According to Kyodo News,
North Korea fired two ballistic missiles into waters within Japan’s exclusive economic zone Wednesday in the first launches of such weapons in nearly six months, the Japanese Defense Ministry said.
The launches came just days after the North said it had tested a new long-range cruise missile, raising fresh alarm in Japan and other countries, including the United States, which has tens of thousands of troops stationed across Japan.
While Japan’s Defense Ministry said the projectiles did not enter Japanese territory, they were initially believed to have landed outside Japan’s EEZ. Further analysis revealed they both fell in waters off the Noto Peninsula, Ishikawa Prefecture, after reaching an altitude of about 50 kilometers and flying around 750 km “on an irregular trajectory,” Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi said.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the two short-range ballistic missiles were launched from South Pyongan Province in a central area of North Korea toward the east coast.
One good thing about living in the United States is that we are separated from our enemies. North Korea can’t bomb us because they can’t reach us. The same goes with many countries including China and Russia. They are said to have missiles that can reach that distance, but those aren’t common. Plus it is very unlikely that we wouldn’t be able to detect it even though China reports that theirs can avoid detection.
However, North Korea is playing this deadly game with Japan and I don’t think it’s one that they want to play because Japan will wipe them off the face of the Earth.
