PYONGYANG FIRES MEDIUM-RANGE BALLISTIC MISSILE FROM REGION BORDERING CHINA INTO SEA OF JAPAN

North Korea successfully launched its first intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday morning, the country’s state television reported. The Hwasong-14 ICBM flew some 933 kilometers in 39 minutes reaching an altitude of 2,802 kilometers.

The ICBM is capable of reaching any target in the world, North Korean state TV said, as cited by Reuters. The test was reportedly carried out under the supervision of North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un.

“The test launch was conducted at the sharpest angle possible and did not have any negative effect on neighboring countries,” North Korean state media said, as cited by Reuters.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said earlier that Pyongyang had conducted another ballistic missile test on Tuesday morning. The projectile, described by the South as an “unidentified ballistic missile,” was launched towards the Sea of Japan.

“North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile into the East Sea from the vicinity of Banghyon, North Pyongan Province, at around 9:40 am,” the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

The missile flew more than 930 km, according to the South Korean military. The US military tracked the projectile – adjudged to be a single, land-based intermediate range ballistic missile – for 37 minutes before it fell in the Sea of Japan.

"The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) assessed that the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America," the US military's Pacific Command said in a statement.

President Moon Jae-in, who was immediately informed of the incident, has convened an emergency meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) in response to the latest launch. He said Seoul is not ruling out the possibility that the projectile might have been an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kim Jung Un may well not know a bloody thing about ballistic missiles; but he is no slouch on timing, as this event was timed to happen right before the G 20 meeting in Hamburg.

The intelligent response would be for China, South Korea, Japan, and the US show a united front, and negotiate a legitimate peace treaty with North Korea to replace the armistice, guaranteeing trade, and lifting any and all sanctions, in return for Kim Jung Un's stopping his nuclear missile program.

But of course, that...would be logical.
And I have rather given up on the Unhinged Surveilled States of America doing anything that even begins to smack of logic for We the People in the 21st century.

So look for some genuine American Deep State stupidity to prevail unilaterally, manifested perhaps as some kind of horrific bombing, or a decap strike on Pyongyang.
