Ready, Aim, Fire? North Korea Makes A Deadly Announcement

North Korea has allegedly test-fired a successful missile toward Japan and is set to make an “important announcement” Tuesday afternoon. The missile launch will likely push South Korea to reevaluate the dangers and worry of North Korea’s missile progress.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff of South Korea reported that the missile was shot off around 9:40 a.m. and flew roughly 578 miles. This distance, combined with the “greatly exceeded” 2,500 kilometers, gave the missile about 40 minutes in the air. This air time gives North Korea the ability to hit most of Alaska. With a few tweaks, the North could, in theory, hit Hawaii.
Confirmation of the missile’s course was delivered by the U.S. Pacific Command. The Command said that they were tracking the missile which landed in the Sea of Japan. Since it did not hit the United States mainland, it isn’t technically considered an ICBM. Instead, the U.S. and South Korea are digging into whether they would consider it capable of being one.
According to Bloomberg, North Korea will make its announcement at 3 p.m. Pyongyang time. If this announcement boasts use of an ICBM, the tensions between North Korea and several other countries will take a turn for the worse. Kim Jong Un has continued “pushing the buttons” of other world leaders by continuing his missile tests, but his real goal is to hit the U.S. with a nuclear warhead.
President Trump posted to Twitter the moment he learned that North Korea successfully fired their 11th missile test:

It’s near certain that Trump has lost nearly all his patience towards this country that doesn’t obey anyone. In a statement, Trump said, “Together, we are facing the threat of the reckless and brutal regime in North Korea. The nuclear and ballistic missile programs of that regime require a determined response.”
