Ever since Trump became president, the fat dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, has been trying to act tough. He’s been constantly testing the resolve of the new president, trying to see what he can get away with.
Thus far, he’s drastically increased weapon’s tests that are aimed at threatening our allies in the region and telling us not to screw with him. But while Kim may think that showing off his bargain-bin missiles will deter Trump from taking him out, he’d be wise to reassess the president’s willingness to act. Even so, the oversized tyrant is determined to force US intervention, as he’s just announced yet another missile.
As reported at the Mirror, North Korea is readying another weapon’s test that will fire off a new “high range” missile that’s supposedly capable of hitting the US mainland, according to the claims of a Russian lawmaker.
Anton Morozov disclosed Pyongyang’s plans after returning from a 5-day visit to the reclusive nation, where he said the atmosphere is “rather belligerent.”
He claims North Korean officials gave the Russians mathematical calculations indicating that the intercontinental ballistic missile could reach targets on the US west coast.
The news comes only days after a CIA report claimed that Kim’s tyrannical regime might be planning a new missile launch, or even another nuclear test within weeks.
Morozov told the Russian state-run news agency RIA Novosti: “They are preparing for a new test of a longer-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the western coast of the United States.”
He added, “In the near future, they are going to carry out, as far as we understand, yet another launch of a missile, but this time with a longer range.”
This is certainly unwelcome news, as it appears that Kim is determined to continue his unhinged and aggressive behavior. He’s clearly trying to deter the US from intervention, but at the same time, these kinds of tests only increase the likelihood of one.
Hopefully, this new test, like many previously, will fail. The last thing the world needs is for this childish dictator to have capable ICBMs.
