As we have said about these people from day one. Untrustworthy. Brigands. Incorrigible. Irredeemable. Worthy of neither praise nor friendship.

The Chinese are getting worried about Trump’s resiliance. I assume they had been betting on the coup. Their last card to play is Little Rocket Man before they fold. The president’s got this.

Sounds nuts but...

Have you ever wondered if the Norks have sometimes acted as a Deep State asset..?

It’s funny.

Every time the libs find themselves on the ropes?

Something like this happens.

It’s....eerie.

What if Japan launched some missiles that fell into the sea a few miles off the coast of NK?

I guess it’s time for suffocating sanctions. Worst case we can flatten Pyongyang after the election.

Correction: Should read “short range” missile instead. Info still coming in. No detection of the launch by US as it occurred. South Korean JCS confirms post facto. Working on it....

Well Diane Feinstein had a Chinese “spy” driving her for 10years. I guarantee there is no coincidence.

Rogue nation gonna rogue.

Talk about collusion.

Guess the next step (again) is to try and drag US into war in the Pacific.

Back to square one for the Communists Left ((again)).

Quoting from an article I found, on this launch:

“During the diplomacy that followed a rocky 2017, Kim Jong Un said that the North would not test nuclear devices or ICBMs.

This short-range missile would not violate that self-imposed moratorium. It may instead be a way to register his displeasure with Washington and the state of talks meant to provide sanctions relief for disarmament without having the diplomacy collapse.”

(at the end of the article)

From NHK Japan :

“The South Korean military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff says North Korea has conducted a missile launch. The North reportedly launched the short-range missile from Wonsan in the eastern part of the country at about 9:06 a.m. local time. The missile is said to have traveled eastward.

The South Korean military is gathering information on the launch together with the US military.”

The only way Lil Dong is going to give up his nukes is when they’re pried from his carbonized hands.

A message that, the generals still hold power and Kim is a figure head.

Not really. It’s self generated. It’s all internal. They did this under Bush. Clinton, Obama. Trump. Party does not matter to them.

It is a tantrum.

They want stuff.

The issue always is, to avoid peninsular nuclear war, will Washington give them something as they always have.

He’s waiting.
