North Korea Launch ICBM In Response To Planned US-South Korea Excercise

Reacting to the partnership agreement between South Korea and the U.S., Kim Jun Un has flexed his military muscles as North Korea launched the inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM).

This launching drill occurred last Saturday and landed off Japan’s coast after flying over 650 miles. This mock military exercise became necessary due to the non-top military interactions between the U.S. and their Southern neighbors.

This isn’t the first North Korean response to a joint military drill between the U.S. and South Korea. Last November, a Hwasong-17 missile was also fired. The missile has a devastating reach and could strike the U.S. mainland if launched at a normal trajectory, according to experts.

According to the situation assessment by the South Korean and Japanese militaries, the Hwasong-15 missile was strategically fired to avoid non-targets. It was airborne for about 60 minutes flying at an altitude of 3500 miles.

The North Korean government has justified the recent Hwasong-15 missile that showed similar results to its predecessor. They claim that such military actions have become necessary because the U.S. and South Korea’s military threat is graduating to a level that raises concerns that can’t be ignored.

The North Korean regime’s primary concern is a reported 20 rounds of various joint military drills between the U.S. and South Korea to be conducted this year.

The North Korean Regime has issued a stern warning without explicitly referring to any of the supposed joint military drills. North Korea said in a statement that they are ready to respond to every move.

Kim Yo-jong, the North Korean leader’s sister, warned the U.S. to halt all military drills or her country could turn the Pacific into a firing range, according to the Daily Mail.

‘The frequency of using the Pacific as our firing range depends upon the U.S. forces’ action character,’ Kim Yo Jong said in a statement. ‘We are well aware of the movement of U.S. forces’ strategic strike means recently getting brisk around the Korean Peninsula.’
