In an unprecedented move of ruthless aggression, North Korea has just fired a missile over Japan toward the Pacific Ocean. This comes from Japan’s very own government, which says it was launched at 6:57am their time, Friday morning.
North Korea has repeatedly threatened President Trump and US citizens with violence, and may finally act upon his words. He’s threatened to reduce the US to ashes, strike at our mainland, and has even spread gruesome propaganda videos with our country looking like a graveyard.
We previously reported that North Korea had fueled a missile that was capable of hitting the USA, and Japan warned that its launch was imminent:
According to sources, the movement of a launch pad was first noticed yesterday morning, and based off of its size, it is large enough to carry an ICBM class Hwasong-14 ballistic missile, which has a range of over 6,200 miles.
The United Kingdom is roughly 5,400 miles away from North Korea, while the United States is only 3,500 miles away, meaning that we’re entirely within range of this dangerous new threat. According to various Asian outlets, the missile is already fueled up and could be launched at any moment.
At the very least, we know that North Korea currently has the capability to hit Alaska, which Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has described as a “new escalation of threat.” Unfortunately, Kim Jong Un’s nuclear project has been shrouded in some secrecy, meaning he could have the potential to strike at the heartland of our country.
Bloomberg just broke the story:
North Korea fired a missile over Japan toward the Pacific Ocean on Friday morning, Japan’s government said, according to Bloomberg News.
Japan didn’t attempt to shoot down the missile, which was launched at 6:57 a.m., according to Japanese broadcaster NHK.
