North Korea Getting Ready to Launch Ballistic Missile?
Kim Jong-un and his North Korea vs. the World
New week same question on everyone’s mind.
What is North Korea up to these days?
The answer to that varies depending on what news outlet you tune into.
The South Korean media reported today that it looks like North Korea is possibly getting ready to launch an ICBM.
Some of the mainstream media here in the US failed to report that while some of the radio communications appear to be similar to communications previously used to signal a missile launch, we still have no satellite proof that North Korea is hell bent on launching a Ballistic Missile in the coming days.
And by satellite proof, we are not seeing a movable launch pad, much less in the way of an actual missile being moved about the country.
Additionally, now is the time year that North Korea conducts it’s winter military training exercises so, the radio chatter could be related to that.
Then you have Vladimir Putin subtly suggesting that the US is woefully attempting to goad North Korea into launching a nuclear missile.
Which I cannot argue with. In a lot of ways I see where Vladimir is coming from by suggesting that. With all of Trump’s childish twitter tirades aimed at Kim Jong-un, it’s hard not to come to that conclusion, then you add in all of the sanctions…
To top all of that off, on November 20th Trump put Pyongyang on the list of state sponsors of terrorism, again.
Which is not so new and unusual, they were on the list before.
Kim Jong-un and Trump do so enjoy having a war of words with one another, however Kim Jong-un is fairly reserved in terms of name calling most of the the time.
One thing he has not been reserved on is his promise to bring the united states to her knees.
Lastly, North Korea has been fairly quiet in terms of missile launching since around September 15th. They have not launched a new missile since then so everyone really is wondering what exactly North Korea is up to these days.
Plotting, pillaging or pondering.
Either way you slice it, no one really knows if North Korea is planning a new missile launch or if the radio chatter is related to something else entirely.
All that I personally know is that if you give the US mainstream media half an inch they end up taking an entire mile and running with it.
All while leaving out vital details so as not to cause panic in the public that they so desire watch/read each carefully strewn together news story, that’s missing quite a few details and facts.
