Kim Jong Un is known for his aggressive posturing.
It recently led to some tough talk between him and Donald Trump.
But while the media shifts from their Russia fake news narrative to pushing impeachment of President Trump, North Korea just took one more step toward reigniting war on the Korean peninsula with this unprecedented move.
North Korea fired a missile over Japanese airspace.
While the Pentagon said it posed no threat to North America, this act of aggression is unprecedented.
The Hill reports:
“We assess North Korea conducted a missile launch within the last 90 minutes,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “We are still in the process of assessing this launch. North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America. We are working closely with Pacific Command, Strategic Command and NORAD and will provide an update as soon as possible.”
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the launch an “unprecedented, serious and grave threat,” according to the AFP news agency. He called for an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council.
South Korea’s military said Pyongyang fired the “unidentified projectile” about 5:57 a.m. local time Tuesday morning and that it landed in the sea, Yonhap news agency reported.
Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that the country’s government warned its citizens that the missile appeared to be headed toward Tohoku, in northern Japan, and advised people there to take cover.
The missile instead reportedly passed over the country about 6:06 a.m., according to NHK, Bloomberg reported.
Japan didn’t attempt to shoot down the missile.
This comes on the heels of North Korea firing recently firing three short-range ballistic missiles and South Korean officials believe Pyongyang is preparing for another nuclear weapons test.
While the media is seeking to keep Americans divided over race and Donald Trump through fake news stories, it’s important to remember America has real issues to deal with.
