Man they just won’t stop…Kim Jong Un is continuously trying to get these missiles to be ready at all times for North Korea. But for the rest of the world, yesterday was another setback.

North Korea attempted to launch one missile Tuesday, from the eastern city of Wonsan at approximately 5:20 a.m, the South Korea Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said.

“Our military has maintained readiness as (we are) bracing for possibilities of additional provocations,” said Jeon Ha-gyu, the chief of public affairs for the JCS.

Local media reports the missile was an intermediate-range Musudan missile and this would be the fourth time North Korea failed at launching this type of missle. China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has urged all parties “to refrain from taking any action that may escalate tensions” on the Korean Peninsula. Yoshihide Suga, Japan’s chief cabinet secretary, said that no missile was confirmed to have flown towards Japan.

Last Thursday, President Obama said at the G7 Summit in Japan (still don’t know why he’s in Japan after we destroyed two of their cities), that North Korea was a “big worry”. Five days later they test another missile.

President Obama:

“They’re not at the point right now where they can effectively hit U.S. targets, but each time that they test, even if those tests fail, they learn something. It’s clear that ideologically they’re still convinced that, and Kim Jong Un in particular seems to be convinced that his own legitimacy is tied up in the developing of nuclear weapons.”
