DPRK close to triggering massive conflict.
North Korea launched a ballistic missile on 7/28, the second of the month of July, which landed inside Japan’s economic zone according to a report from USA Today.
The Pentagon confirmed that the missile launch site was Mupyong-ni in North Korea’s Chagang province.
“We assess that this missile was an intercontinental ballistic missile, as had been expected,” a Department of Defense statement said.
This latest act of provocation will likely heighten tensions between the “Democratic” People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Western world. It could also signify that Kim-Jong Un is willing to devolve the current geopolitical stand off into a nuclear war.
According to the Associated Press, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe reportedly called for an emergency national security meeting in response to the missile test.
It is quickly becoming accepted by analysts and ICBM experts that North Korea will soon gain the capability to strike the American mainland, which would undoubtedly trigger World War III. As it stands, a missile sent towards the United States at an attack trajectory could strike Alaska or possibly Hawaii.
“North Korea is extremely dangerous and more dangerous as the weeks go by,” Gen. Mark Milley, chief of staff of the U.S. Army said to the National press Club in Washington. “Time is running out.”
