Cameras capture North Korean missile falling into Sea of Japan

SECURITY cameras appear to have captured the moment an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) fired by North Korea overnight landed in the sea off Japan.

According to U.S. officials, the missile – the second to be launched this month – was fired on a heightened trajectory and travelled around 1,000km before crashing into the Sea of Japan, around 125km from the mainland.

It’s understood the missile was more advanced than the last and travelled through the air for 45 minutes.

The missile reached an altitude of 3700km, according to South Korea’s Joint Cheifs of Staff – far higher than the 2800km reached by the ICBM launched earlier this month.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said the latest test confirmed all the US mainland was within striking range and demonstraed the North’s ability to launch “at any place and time”.

The significantly higher altitude of last night’s test suggests the missile could have flown much farther than the last, putting Los Angeles, Denver, and Chicago within range.

Security cameras in Japan appear to have captured the moment last night’s missile landed in the ocean, around 125km off the coast.

In response, the US and South Korea conducted a live-fire military exercise using surface-to-surface missiles.

Donald Trump condemned the “threatening” test, calling it a “reckless and dangerous” action.

“By threatening the world, these weapons and tests further isolate North Korea, weaken its economy, and deprive its people,” the President said in a statement.

“The United States will take all necessary steps to ensure the security of the American homeland and protect our allies in the region.”

It’s the twelfth missile to be launched by the rogue nation since February, despite repeated warnings from global leaders and being hit with extreme sanctions by the United Nations.

U.S. officials believe North Korea will have the capability to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile fitted with a nuclear warhead by early next year.

NORTH KOREA IS BUT A DISTRACTION.

NORTH KOREA – is highlighted on the world scene like an advert on some global sports event to exploit its sale potential of arms and fear across a world.

Nations especially in the far east are buying up the west’s military hardware by the billions of $dollars – and America is now going on a new spending programme for its military to keep ‘the land of the free and home of the brave’ safer than ever.

Where will people living in fear of nuclear annihilation not support such government spending?

Nothing unites people like fear of death – who knows that better than politicians – scare the living daylights out of them – it has worked time after time – and they will let us do whatever we want – as long as we protect them from the monsters out there who are jealous of our freedoms.

Who do you think gave N.Korea all that nuclear technology in the first place – yes yUSA right again.

The wheeling and dealing by the powers that be – the diplomats going from China – to Russia – to America and back again – and Trump taking the lead in that for the biggest sales pitch of the 21st century. What do you think these deviants were planning – that’s right – to s***er a world? Just imagine what has been going on ‘behind’ the scenes of diplomatic treachery.
N. Korea is but a used and convenient petty thief that could be picked up and left virtually denuded of its military in days if not hours.
N.Korea is but a loose cannon on the world scene.

The real enemy of this world is ISLAM. Not some isolated country like N.Korea – surrounded by enemies that could easily destroy it – removed from the international community – with trade embargoes – so removed from the world society the only recognition it gets is from shouting and screaming from being drunk on nuclear fission. Look at who is in charge – look at their isolation – look at those who are surrounding them – they will quickly sober up.

Compare N. Korea to Islam and then you can see very clearly who the real enemy is. Islam is everywhere – and backed by trillions of dollars – and powerful world leaders. They are in positions of power across the white western world – Islam dominates Africa – the Middle East – its influence in the Far east is considerable.

Islamic terrorism is a global problem. Islam is the fuse to set the world alight – not N. Korea.
