North Korea Launches Another Missile As Tensions Continue To Mount

The world’s dictators receive admiration from Trump, but at least one doesn’t seem impressed.  Days after the orange buffoon calls the North Korea dictator “A smart cookie,” he sent a message to the conman, who fools racist Americans, but not anyone else.  North Korea fired on Sunday an unidentified projectile from a region near its west coast, South Korea’s military said, a development that was confirmed by U.S. officials.

The nature of the projectile is not immediately clear, a South Korean military official said by telephone.

Yonhap news agency reported the projectile launched appeared to be a ballistic missile. Three U.S. officials also confirmed to NBC News the country launched a projectile.

The launch took place at a region named Kusong located northwest of the capital, Pyongyang, where the North previously test-launched its intermediate-range missile it is believed to be developing.

The launch, if it is confirmed to be test-firing of a ballistic missile, is the first in two weeks since the last attempt to fire a missile ended in a failure just minutes into flight.

The North attempted but failed to test-launch ballistic missiles four consecutive times in the past two months but has conducted a variety of missile testing since the beginning of last year at an unprecedented pace.

Weapons experts and government officials believe the North has accomplished some technical progress with those tests.
