The Hwasong-15 missile that North Korea launched on Wednesday is a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile which can fly over 8,080 miles, according to South Korean defense ministry.

Earlier this week, Pyongyang said it had test-fired its most advanced missile, putting the U.S. mainland within range, and in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions.


The latest provocation from the North prompted more insults from U.S. President Donald Trump, who referred to North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un as “Little Rocket Man” and a “sick puppy”.

After North Korea released video footage and photographs of Hwasong-15, Pentagon analysts have said they appeared to show the North was indeed capable of delivering a nuclear weapon anywhere in the United States, Fox News reported.

 Trump had also dismissed a Chinese diplomatic effort to rein in North Korea’s weapons program as a failure on Thursday, while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Beijing was doing a lot, but could do more to limit oil supplies to Pyongyang.

Despite international condemnation and sanctions, North Korea has continued on its path towards developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could hit the United States.

“The missile was launched from Sain Ni, North Korea, and traveled about 1,000 km before splashing down in the Sea of Japan, within Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ),” Pentagon spokesman Col. Robert Manning said in a statement.



White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted Tuesday afternoon that Trump was briefed on the situation “while missile was still in the air.”

Trump later addressed the launch in an appearance before reporters at the White House, pledging, “We will take care of it … It is a situation that we will handle.”

And he took to Twitter Tuesday night, writing, “After North Korea missile launch, it’s more important than ever to fund our gov’t & military! Dems shouldn’t hold troop funding hostage for amnesty & illegal immigration. I ran on stopping illegal immigration and won big. They can’t now threaten a shutdown to get their demands.”

China’s foreign ministry said it was “strongly against” the missile launch, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.

“The U.N. Security Council has clearly regulated North Korea’s missile test and technology,” Geng Shuang, spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said at a Foreign Ministry briefing Wednesday, according to The Associated Press. “China is gravely concerned about and strongly opposed to North Korea’s missile test. China urges North Korea to implement the U.N. Security Council resolution, to stop any actions that would worsen the situation on the Korea Peninsula. In the meantime, we hope all relevant parties act cautiously and work together to keep regional stability.”

French president Emmanuel Macron tweeted in French, “I condemn the new irresponsible ballistic test of North Korea. It reinforces our determination to increase the pressure on Pyongyang and our solidarity with our partners.”

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and her counterparts from Japan and South Korea requested an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council for Wednesday afternoon in response to the test.

Yonhap news agency was the first to report the launch, which occurred early Wednesday local time, citing South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile eastward from the vicinity of Pyongsong, South Pyongan province, at dawn today,” the Joint Chiefs of Staff said, according to Yonhap.

The Trump administration has said all military options remain on the table to deal with the North Korean threat, but top U.S. officials have consistently emphasized the U.S. is pursuing a diplomatically led effort, including additional economic pressure.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis said this month, during the pause in testing, that “there would be an opportunity for talks … so long as they stop testing, stop developing” and “don’t export their weapons.”

So far, all that continues to happen is the same broken record, North Korea illegally launches ICBM’s, POTUS Trump takes to twitter to highly condemn and mock North Korea, UN holds emergency meeting, Japan makes ready for missile attacks and China tells the world they are against the Launches, all the while the technology of the ICBM’s is from China and Iran.

Last but not least, the United States throws more sanctions against North Korea and Russia and China refuse to enforce any of the sanctions.

This begs the question, WHY?  Why have we allowed North Korea to completely break international laws and sanctions?  Why have we allowed North Korea to continue to build ICBM’s and nuclear warheads?  Why have we allowed North Korea to further their agenda of seeing American soil burn with North Korean missiles?

Because in war, war is money, a political move that every President has had in their pocket to push their policies and “vision” and agenda onto the American public.  If Trump were serious, he would have dealt with North Korea instead of just tweeting about dealing with North Korea.

Could it be that the democrats have more power than we believe?  Are they idiots blocking Trump from dealing with North Korea?
