Kim’s at it again, this time opting for not overshooting Japan’s mainland again (he’s done that on multiple occasions now) but dropping his latest ICBM near their shore.
On November 28th, 2017 at exactly 1:17 Eastern Standard Time, the Pentagon tracked an intercontinental ballistic missile arching its way from North Korea’s capital city of Pyongsong.
“North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile early this morning from Pyongsong, South Pyongan, to the east direction. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff is analyzing more details of the missile with the US side.”-South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff
This is the second missile North Korea has launched in the last month showing the world they’re not slowing down their nuclear arsenal development despite major opposition by many countries, especially the United States. Japan is particularly not happy about their cavalier actions as North Korea is playing with their yet to be proven missiles right in their backyard, if not right over it on occasions.
President Trump was briefed on the incident while the missile was still airborne, saying shortly, “we will take care of it.”
