An unidentified missile has just been fired by the rogue nation North Korea towards Japan, according to South Korea’s military this Thursday. As of right now, both the US and South Korean militaries are investigating details of the launch.
Japan’s public broadcaster revealed that the missile launched by the war-crazed dictator Kim Jong Un passed over the northern island of Hokkaido, landing in the Pacific just 2,000 km east of Japan. While no danger was reported by the government, people were advised to keep a distance from anything which appears similar to missile debris.
The sudden launch came several hours after North Korea responded to the approval of additional sanctions by the United Nations Security Council, threatening to “sink” Japan and reduce the U.S. mainland into “ash and darkness.”
The sanctions however, came after NK launched a ballistic missile from Sunan on August 29th, which flew over Japan’s Hokkaido island and landed in the Pacific waters. The war-crazed dictator claimed it was a hydrogen bomb which had the possibility of triggering an artificial earthquake that ultimate resulted in a magnitude 6.3 earthquake in North Korea.
While South Korean President Moon Jae-in dismissed the idea of nuclear weapons deployment in his country, he did however hold an interview on CNN, in which he revealed, “We need to develop our military capabilities in the face of North Korea’s nuclear advancement,” adding how he didn’t refer to South Korea working on their own nuclear weapons, but instead, to respond to the rogue nation by having “our own nuclear weapons that will not maintain peace on the Korean Peninsula and could lead to a nuclear arms race in northeast Asia.”
