Why don’t we just ignore little rocket man? The world is busy dealing with the pandemic to let this lunatic take the spotlight over and over again. After all these years it just seems like an attention grab when they feel they aren’t getting any. Who exactly are the rockets for Kimmy?

A silly little man begging for attention or he's just following orders from his close neighbours

Spot on Ricky Kaminski13. Things might be getting a bit desperate in NK with food shortages so I think he is just shoring up local support for the regime while at the same time testing his missiles. Probably has no hope of getting food aid quickly from anyone but China. I see he has just opened freight trade with them and hailed closer ties. Useful for China to have a country which can annoy or distract the US.

The nuclear deterrent?

Kim knows what has happened to Libya,Iraq,Afghanistan,Syria etc

Without power no country can ever repel invaders or defend itself.

The North Korean regime might be many things but it is not silly nor stupid.

Let them continue throwing away what little money they have.

Kim: Let's launch a surprise attack on the world

Kim's top general: Sorry sir, we only have the fake display model missiles left.

Where does Kim Jong Un get his haircut? I want one of those. Next time I go to the barber and they ask me how I want my hair cut, I'm going to say "I want the Kim Jong Un" cut.

Yawn.

As the Japanese say about comedians, Kim is nothing more than an 一発屋 (ippatsuya), a guy with a single routine act that ran its course ages ago...

You've got to put on about 180 pounds first or it won't look right.

That little guy sure is angry at the ocean.

It’s only a little demonstration of still existing and of course a little celebration fireworks for that the Chinese supportive delivery trains roll again over that common bridge’s rail tracks.

Put more sanctions on North Korea. Crack down on everyone sending supplies. Kim is a threat to society.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

It's quite obvious that sanctions don't work.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

He wants everyone to look at his new hairdo.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

He is a bore.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

He's firing a lot of rockets.. is he trying to compensate for something....??

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

They're surrounded by power hungry monster nations.

Like what @Samit Basu said for years now, North Korea already had the ability to destroy multiple Japanese cities undetected, if we assume the US will abandon Japan but it won't. GSOMIA is clearly a very important card for Japan because South Korea is obliged to share radar data of North Korea ballistic missiles movements with Japan. Now, South Korea is increasingly departing from the American sphere of influence, and it's merely a matter of time that SK will evict the US out.

Japan will lose badly if it does not secure helps from South Koreans. Precisely, conservative South Koreans and Christian nuts in SK.

Kim has a loose cannon square head inferiority paranoia complex.

He is cooking up his own recipe as the supreme master of disaster.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

He's at it again. Kimmy just trying to stay relevant.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Little Rocket man must be having major issues in his circle. These tests are being done as an attempt to show "strength".

Lets all hope and pray for massive instability in Pyongyang - and that rivals are lining Little Rocket Man up for an assassination. There will be spontaneous dancing in the streets the free world over if this happens.

exactly said.

Japan ought to get one of these too, in their arsenal of course.

quite a few people are calling for stability in the area, and quite right to, I feel the only way there will be stability in NK if this present leader is removed along with his charming sister., and is replaced with some one who is more mentaly stable.

One day one of these missiles is going to land in the wrong place and then all hell is going to break lose!

The dolphins are all swimming in fear.

Dolphins don't live in the middle of big sea; dolphins live near coastal water. Even whales prefer coastal water to deep sea in their migration path.

Kim is trying to look like an adult. Good for you! Keep trying.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Clearly they use their resources to build and destroy lots of large expensive missiles. Such a nation needs no charity or help to feed their people, or they woud be buying food instead.

Fire up another missile WE WANT RICE!!!

From experience in the Navy and Coast Guard, dolphins are in common mid ocean. They are ubiquitous in the worlds oceans. Some species like the Pacific White Sided Dolphin never go near coasts.

There is an election in South Korea very soon and the current President and majority party is highly unpopular. An election can change a lot so keep your gunpowder dry so to speak and see what the election results bring. Recent polls have shown South Koreans viewing Japan more favorably than China, which is a major change on their part. Most view the US favorably too so I would not be so sure US forces would be expelled any time soon.
