North Korea has fired a ballistic missile, South Korea's military says, the first such test since Donald Trump took office as US president. The missile was launched at 07:55 local time (22:55 GMT Saturday) and flew east towards the Sea of Japan for about 500km, South Korean officials say. Pyongyang has conducted a number of nuclear tests in the past year. North Korea's repeated missile and nuclear tests and aggressive statements continue to alarm and anger the region. Sunday's launch took place from the Banghyon air base in North Pyongan province on the west side of the Korean peninsula. A US defence official quoted by Reuters news agency said Washington "can confirm that we did detect a missile launch from North Korea". A national security meeting called by the South Korean government is due to convene shortly to discuss the launch.

Trump needs to put pressure on the Chinese to intervene each time this happens.
Let’s see. Iranian missiles plus Nork nukes. Does this combo equal a US response or crickets? Trump may have the will but does he have realistic means and the backing of America to take military counter measures?
I’d say the Chinese are intervening. Hence the reason why NK is launching tests.
Only if he can take out nuke facilities only with mimal collateral damage.
Liberals losing it right now. They are mad that Trump won’t give them a statement right away. Donald Trump isn’t going to publicly spell out his response right away, snowflakes.
Pfffft. The Norks are China’s ‘junk yard dog’.
If that's their long range test fish should be scared.
For a long time. GOOD MORNING VIETNAM. !!!
Make that an element of Trump support for the one-China policy (whatever that is these days).
So, when are we getting the USS Pueblo back?
Gee I dont remember leftists “Losing it” when NK fired missiles on Obama’s watch..and Obama was too busy playing golf to even issue a statement
trump should advocate a remilitarized and nuuclear armed japan. it doesn’t have to happen, it just has to freak out the chinese and the russians enough to get with the program regarding, among many other things, north korea.
To hell with the Chinese.The little korean faggot threatened this nation. I want to bomb that little fat faced girly bastard until he cries!!
My suggestion. is 10 F15 strikers with 5 MT nukes. That will wipe the smile off of that slat eyed girly man.
The thread should stop right here. Truth!
It might be a mistake for Trump to give a statement, as it legitimizes NK. Might be better for lower level State or Defense people to issue statement.
Can someone give me a reason why we shouldn’t just take out Kim and all his top Generals?
