North Korea fired another missile on 9/14/2017. Following tougher sanctions leveled against North Korea by the U.N., N. Korea launched it’s second missile in less than one month. The missiles path was directly over U.S. ally, Japan. The pentagon recently confirmed that N. Korea did in fact launch another missile. North Korea missile launches have deeply impacted the security of the United States and Japan.
According to a report from Market Watch:
The missile was launched from around the North Korean capitol, Pyongyang, and flew eastward over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido around 7 a.m. local time, according to NHK. The missile splashed into the Pacific Ocean, and no damage or injuries in Japan were reported. North Korea previously fired a ballistic missile over northern Japan on Aug. 28. This is the rogue nation’s 13th missile test this year. Earlier Thursday, North Korea issued new threats, calling to “reduce the U.S. mainland into ashes” and saying Japan “should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb.”
North Korea Missile Launches Taken Serious
With reported threats against Guam, Japan, Hawaii and mainland U.S., N. Korea is instigating war, according to U.S. intelligence.
North Korea’s threats of turning the U.S. into ‘ashes and darkenss’ has sparked a deep concern for many U.S. citizens. A war between the U.S. and North Korea is becoming more likely, especially considering the current administration’s opposition to N. Korea.
