North Korea has fired two medium range Rodong missiles from the Sukchon area, a western part of the country. The ballistic missile flew approximately 800 miles before plummeting into the Sea of Japan.
The North Korean leader regularly threatens to destroy South Korea and Japan, as well as the U.S. He would be smacked down like a pesky mosquito except for his patron-saint China, so mostly the world just ignores his temper tantrums.

North Korea has claimed it could “burn Manhattan down to ashes” by firing a hydrogen bomb into the heart of the city on an intercontinental ballistic missile.
The statement, which was made via the state-run outlet DPRK Today, claimed that North Korea’s hydrogen bomb was more powerful than technology developed by the former Soviet Union.
The increasingly strong rhetoric emerging from Pyongyang appears to reflect the leader’s anger at the international community’s tough new sanctions recently imposed in response to recent nuclear and missile tests.
