Tensions between North Korea and America have been growing exponentially over the past few weeks, but after Kim Jong Un just decided to fire another ballistic missile, the first in over a month, many believe he’s beating the drums of war and asking for a retaliation attack.
The missile flew to the east, presumably over Japan, and while it’s clear that the missile didn’t injure any civilians or military officials, many are still concerned over Kim Jong Un’s impulsive nature. Liberals have attacked President Trump over his response to North Korea, but it seems that even President Trump may not be doing enough.
(Reuters) – North Korea fired a ballistic missile on Wednesday, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported, citing South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The missile flew to the east and the South Korean military is analyzing details of the launch with the United States, South Korea’s joint chiefs said, according to the report.
Two authoritative U.S. government sources said earlier that U.S. government experts believed North Korea could conduct a new missile test within days, in what would be its first launch since it fired a missile over Japan in mid-September.

North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile on Wednesday, South Korea’s media said, citing military officials.
“The missile flew eastward and the South Korean military is analyzing details with the U.S.,” Yonhap News Agency reported.
There have been signs that indicated the Kim Jong Un’s regime was planning a missile launch in recent days. Japan’s Kyodo News reported on Monday that Japanese government detected radio signals that indicated a possible missile test in the near future.
North Korea last fired a missile on Sept. 15 that flew over Japan’s Hokkaido Island before splashing into the Pacific ocean.
