North Korea Continues Childish Tantrums, Launching Yet Another Projectile

The following article, North Korea Continues Childish Tantrums, Launching Yet Another Projectile, was first published on Flag And Cross.

North Korea’s modus operandi has long been to aggravate the world to the point of action, and then take their foot off the pedal in exchange for economic benefits.  But, given that their military prowess has long been highly underwhelming, this has felt a lot like someone using a squirt gun to rob a convenient store.

Lately, however, something alarming has been on the horizon, with North Korea having launched what appeared to be a hypersonic missile.  These devices are believed to be capable of evading even the most advanced defense systems, with global experts having believed that only Russia and China were capable of such technology so far.

Now, after the DPRK was slapped with new sanctions, Kim Jong Un and company have popped off another projective, perpetuating this silly game of fear-for-finance.

North Korea on Friday fired what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles in its third weapons launch this month, officials in South Korea said, in an apparent reprisal for fresh sanctions imposed by the Biden administration for its continuing test launches.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missiles were fired 11 minutes apart from an inland area in western North Pyongan province, where North Korea is known to operate key missile bases and has frequently conducted test launches in recent years.

The missiles flew 430 kilometers (267 miles) cross-country on a maximum altitude of 36 kilometers (22 miles) before landing in the sea, the military said.

There was little doubt as to the reason for the aggression.

Hours earlier, North Korea issued a statement berating the Biden administration for imposing fresh sanctions over its previous missile tests and warned of stronger and more explicit action if Washington maintains its “confrontational stance.”

The sanctions targeted five North Koreans over their roles in obtaining equipment and technology for the North’s missile programs in its response to the North’s missile test this week. Washington also said it would seek new U.N. sanctions.

This latest puffery from the hermit kingdom has underscored the succinct successes of the Trump administration in dealing with Kim Jong Un, as Biden’s foreign policy continues to provide Kim into sending trouble skyward.
