Tensions on the Korean peninsula ramped up sharply last night when North Korea fired a new ballistic missile that passed over Japan before falling into the sea.
The provocation brought sharp responses from the United States, Japan and South Korea, while China warned that joint military drills by the U.S. and South Korea prompted the North Korean action.
The Chinese government called for both sides to avoid any further escalation of the crisis and to resume peace talks.
In Japan, the government warned citizens in the Tohoku region in the northern part of the country of the missile launch and its approach to Japanese airspace. Air raid sirens sounded the alarm for those in the missile’s flight path. The Japanese took no action to shoot down the missile.
The U.S., Japan and South Korea have called for a new meeting of the United Nations Security Council to consider what new steps can be taken against the Kim Jong-un regime in Pyongyang.
On the next page, learn more about the growing seriousness of the crisis, how President Donald Trump has responded, and what concerns the Chinese about the latest missile launch.
Deal with this$#%&[email protected]*hole before it’s too late
Take no prisoners. He is playing shell games until he loads a shell with a nuke.
let Jaapn and China deal with NK! it’s not our circus.
Why was it not shot down???
This little POS knows he will survive retaliation because he has 18 miles of underground nuclear shelter complete with a train, plus planes waiting to take him to China. I am afraid Russia, China, and Iran are agitating this Tub of Lard into firing on America so they can use their Nuclear weapons against us when we retaliate. Russia has moved Nuclear weapons to the area and China has said they will stand with NK if we attack, as will Iran. Merkel also said Germany will not stand with the USA. They know Obama almost destroyed our military and nuclear capabilities and now is the time to hit while we are vulnerable. Plus the division and violence the Soros/Obama paid mercenaries are causing within our borders to try and take down our government from within and overthrow our President.
Fire n fury like his$#%&[email protected]*has never seen
