In the wake of Kim Jong Un’s missile tests throughout the Pacific, the US has unleashed a new advanced military weapon of their own…and it’s absolutely terrifying North Korean officials.
For the past six months, Kim Jong Un has been poking Donald Trump and “Mad Dog” Mattis with his repeated missile tests and refusal to back down. While this may have worked under the Obama administration, it’s certainly not something that our current President will tolerate.
In response, our military has unleashed a highly technologically advanced, state of the art missile defense system, which will render any and all North Korean missiles shot as being completely inert. Much to the terror of North Korean officials, we just tested it today…and the results were staggering.
USA Today reports:
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) said a U.S. warship successfully shot down a medium-range ballistic missile in a test off Hawaii on Wednesday, as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un vowed to press ahead with more missile tests in the Pacific.
The USS John Paul Jones detected and tracked a missile launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai with its onboard radar, before intercepting it with SM-6 missiles, the MDA said.
It said it marked the second time an SM-6 missile has successfully intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile in a test.
MDA Director Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves said the test marked a “key milestone.”
“We will continue developing ballistic missile defense technologies to stay ahead of the threat as it evolves,” Greaves said in a statement.
This comes in response to Kim Jong Un launching a missile over Japan, which we previously reported on. The blatant threat to Japanese safety has been met with United States style military technology, and North Korea isn’t happy.
Despite this, they’ve been desperately trying to maintain their guise of superiority to their people. State run media has repeatedly referred to us as the “foolish Yankees,” completely ignoring the fact that their military budget is less than 1% of ours.
While the United Nations has stepped in and put pressure on the tyrannical Un, threatening him with sanctions and more, it seems that he will not be deterred from his stated goal of creating a nuclear weapon that could strike the “heartland of the US.”
The U.N. Security Council said it “strongly condemns” the missile test and the North’s launching of three ballistic missiles into the sea on Aug. 25. It demanded that Pyongyang “immediately cease all such actions” in a statement following an emergency meeting Tuesday. It did not announce new sanctions.
Choo Mi-ae, the head of South Korea’s ruling Democratic Party, urged Pyongyang to accept its offer of dialogue and said “such an act that threatens neighboring nations is unpardonable,” the South’s Yonhap news agency reported.
“If North Korea trusts South Korea’s government and holds its hands, the door will open for its survival. Otherwise, it will face more serious isolation,” Choo said.
Thankfully, with Donald Trump in office, our military is more powerful than ever. Any and all enemies of the United States should be afraid, because not only are our offensive capabilities unrivaled, but as this military test has just shown, so are our defensive tactics.
