“North Korea fired an unidentified projectile in Sinpo, South Hamgyong Province, into the East Sea,” South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said, according to Yonhap news agency, using the local name for the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.

 It was not clear what kind of missile North Korea tested, but they said it had been fired from the ground, not under the water.
The east coast port of Sinpo is home to a known North Korean submarine base.

In August, North Korea made a major technological breakthrough by launching a ballistic missile from a submarine near Sinpo. It flew about 300 miles before falling into the sea inside Japan’s air defense identification zone, the area in which Tokyo controls aircraft movement. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un boasted about the launch, describing it as “the greatest success.”

South Korean officials said the missile did not appear to fly very far, only about 40 miles, after being launched at 6:40 a.m. Seoul time. The South’s national security council convened an emergency meeting.

Kim Jong Un had signaled that his regime was working on a missile capable of reaching the United States, saying in his New Year’s Day address that North Korea had “entered the final stage of preparation for a test-launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile.” After Kim’s statement, Trump tweeted: “It won’t happen!”

It just happened…

Trump warned that the United States would take unilateral action to eliminate the nuclear threat from North Korea unless China increased pressure on Kim Jong Un’s regime.

“China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t,” Trump said in an interview with the Financial Times published Monday.

Trump will host Xi for two days of talks, starting Thursday, at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

This meeting, coinciding with a tense situation on the Korean Peninsula, has led to speculation of imminent provocations from North Korea.

Satellite images taken over the past 10 days have shown a prolonged and heightened level of activity at North Korea’s underground testing site, sparking speculation about whether a sixth nuclear test was planned.

President Trump will have to address this latest threat and take it seriously.  No more tough tweets, it is time to end the threat before North Korea can finish their plan to go on the offensive against the United States and South Korea.

The launch came hours after U.S. President Donald Trump described North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear arsenal as a “humanity problem” and a senior U.S. official told reporters that “the clock has now run out” on Pyongyang.
