And here we go….
North Korea over the weekend successfully test-fired a new long-range cruise missile capable of hitting targets 930 miles away, according to the country’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
The multi-day operation was confirmed as a “success” by leading officials and scientists of the Academy of National Defense Science who took part in the testing of the new type of cruise missile that was launched on Sept. 11 and Sept. 12, KCNA report.
The missile, dubbed “a strategic weapon of great significance,” flew 930 miles before hitting its targets and falling into the country’s territorial waters during the tests, according to the agency. The weapon system was in development for the past two years.
A collage published by KCNA shows the missile being fired from a launch vehicle, as well as the rocket artillery traveling in horizontal flight. The missile reportedly traveled for 7,580 seconds in the air above territorial land and waters of the communist country before hitting its target.
United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions have barred North Korea from testing ballistic missiles, and the country has been heavily sanctioned over its missile and nuclear weapons programs. However, the testing of cruise missiles usually generates less interest, because they are not explicitly banned under the UNSC.
North Korea has also ignored offers from the Biden administration to resume negotiations to abandon its nuclear program. The most recent tests were the most significant since President Joe Biden took office. Earlier in January, just hours after Biden’s inauguration, North Korea test-fired cruise missiles, while later in March it again tested a new tactical short-range ballistic missile.
President Donald Trump, who met with Kim Jong Un three times during his four years in office, was the first U.S. president to set foot on North Korean soil.
And yet...here's the position of the leader of the free world:
U.S. still prepared to engage with North Korea after missile test
"Our position has not changed when it comes to North Korea, we remain prepared to engage," principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters.
Let's pray that the psycho in NoKo doesn't 'engage' next time with a nuke while Biden's handlers sit 'prepared'.
It really tough to wrap my brain around Biden being the ‘leader of the free world’ and see how fast so many things gained under Trump are unraveling around the world. I believe we will survive as a nation, but it won’t be easy!
