North Korea: Launch Another Missile

North Korea just conducted its second missile test launch within a week.

Two short-range missiles were fired off the country’s northeast coast into the sea. The projectiles wouldn’t pose any threat to the U.S. or any of its territories, but South Korean officials are monitoring the situation a little more closely.

On Thursday, North Korea test-fired two projectiles that military officials say were a new kind of short-range missile. These were the country’s first missile launches since President Trump and Kim Jong-un met in June. (NBC News)

Hot Takes:

  • So much for the idea of peace on the Korean peninsula.
  • Japan is also within range of these missiles.
  • Just because relations have thawed doesn’t mean that North Korea is going to stop everything. It was a lot scarier a couple of years ago when they were testing missiles that could go thousands of miles.
