North Korea failed to launch the missile on Sunday, and this happened at the same period our US aircraft super-carrier approached the Korean Peninsula in order to show Kim Jong-un that he can’t play games with the world.
The failing explosion was only a proof that Kim Jong-un hasn’t matured in the field of nuclear weapons, because every attempt so far ended up with a similar scenario. Every missile ended up in the sea, and the North Korean dictator will have to work hard before his missiles reach for Japan or the US.
Experts can’t determine the exact kind of the missile that exploded right after it was launched from the east coast city of Sinpo. The explosion doesn’t seem to fit the celebration of Kim Il-sung’s 105th anniversary. Kim Jong-un planned a massive celebration that would celebrate the birth of Il-sung, and it was more like an attempt to show the world that North Korea has powerful military weapons.
We bet that he didn’t even plant that the missile will explode right after being launched. Was the North Korean dictator trying to send a message to the US? We bet he was, because Vice President Mike Pence is visiting Seoul to talk about the problem with North Korea.
President Donald Trump didn’t release a specific statement about the failed launch. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis revealed that President Trump and his military team knew about Kim Jong-un’s unsuccessful missile launch, but that the President won’t comment on the subject.
We don’t know if Kim Jong-un will proceed with the testing after the failed launch. His has to work a lot to attack warheads small enough to fit on long-range missiles. Some experts believe that North Korea can actually construct missiles that can reach South Korea and Japan.
What do you think about this? Will Kim Jong-un keep with his missile testing?
