BREAKING

North Korea launches missile over Japan

3,714 reading now

North Korea fired a missile early on Tuesday from near Pyongyang that flew over northern Japan, the South Korean and Japanese governments said.

Public broadcaster NHK reported that the missile broke into three pieces and fell into the waters off Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan's main islands.

The Japanese government issued an alert for residents in some prefectures to take cover.

Although North Korea has sent a missile over Japan once before - in 1998 - this launch comes at a time of heightened tensions.

Pyongyang has been threatening to fire a missile over Japan and into the waters around the American territory of Guam.

"We'll make the utmost effort to protect the public," a visibly agitated Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, said shortly after the missile launch.

The missile was launched at 5.58 am Japan time, and flew over Hokkaido at 6.06am.

BREAKING NEWS ALERT


South Korea's joint chiefs of staff also confirmed that the missile had passed over Japan.

The missile flew 1244 kilometres to land in the Pacific Ocean east of Hokkaido's Cape Erimo, NHK reported.

Kim Jong Un, who has ordered the launch of 18 missiles this year alone, has defied international calls to desist and has instead been making strides in his weapons program, last month launching two intercontinental ballistic missiles theoretically capable of reaching the mainland United States.

Tuesday's launch, coming on the heels of three short-range missiles fired Saturday, comes amid ongoing joint exercises between the US and South Korean militaries, exercises that North Korea always strongly protests because it considers them preparation for an invasion.

Tensions had eased between North Korea and the United States after weeks of threats.

Earlier, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had threatened to fire missiles into the sea near the US Pacific territory of Guam, and US President Donald Trump warned Pyongyang would face "fire and fury" if it threatened the US.

More to come

Who is Chump? Kim Jong Un?  America is currently in great danger and had we any other president in currently we would either be in a nuclear war (Hillary) or trying to talk it out.

Perhaps you are not familiar with the impact or horror of the loss of 20,000,000 people in Seoul or what will happen when missile hit the West Coast or New York. It is a time to support our president and then the EMP blast vaporizes the New York Times the net is history - you will be wishing people had spent less time attacking our leadership and preparing for a nuclear war - not if but when.

Any other president would have us discussing or at war?  Yes, but that is the choice facing Chump too.  So far, he has done EXACTLY what the others did - so far...........................   Lets see what he does next.  My guess is talk; just like everyone else did.
Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
