What is more shocking, the story headline or his hairstyle?

Little Rocket Man trying to stay relevant.

No one outside of his rat-hole country is scared of the tiny man.

“No one outside of his rat-hole country is scared of the tiny man.”

But Japan is well within the range of his missiles.

I don’t think they have enough mics in front of him.

He also thinks he’s the Asian Guile from Street Fighter.

Isn't the North way of paying tribute to Abe? :)

Wrong day Mr Kim. It's on Tuesday!

“ But Japan is well within the range of his missiles. “

They’d disappear from the face of the Earth in twenty minutes.

If they actually ignore him and his missiles, he would probably stop. He's just looking for attention

He also thinks he’s the Asian Guile from Street Fighter.

HAAHAHAHAHA!!!! Brilliant!!!

Let's get it over with while assets are in the area, it's been long Overdue guys.

Little kim must be desperate.

Fishing for attention with a nuclear missile as a rod. Pretty original, at least in the days. Now that schtick has grown pretty old. (yawn)

So basically these DICTATORS want to rule the world but because America and it's allies are in their backyards, cannot. And then they blame America for doing what they do. Childish and absolutely men of no character, intelligence, and all have bad hair styles.

which led the United States to call for more sanctions for violating U.N. Security Council resolutions.

I mean really now, what sanctions are left that would mean anything? China isnt goin to agree, as they dont want any refugees flooding their country from NK.

Let’s be real with the situation in the Ukraine. North Korea is as ready to launch nuclear weapons as is Russia.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Kim is that kid who acts tough to seek attention but isn't capable of a fight face to face.

The launch comes after the arrival of the nuclear-powered American aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan in South Korea to participate in joint drills with South Korean forces, and ahead of a planned visit to Seoul this week by Harris.

And to think there’s enough nuclear munitions on that one aircraft carrier to end North Korea’s existence forever… Not to mention the carrier group and the subs underneath her each could take out a country as large as China.

No one outside of his rat-hole country is scared of the tiny man.

“ But Japan is well within the range of his missiles. “

They’d disappear from the face of the Earth in twenty minutes.

Just to make it clear: We’d be left with some scratches and NK would be completely exterminated ( 15 to 20 minutes ). And they know it.

Now, they could be suicidal psychopaths but that’s not the case, so,

the question is: are they crazy enough to even think about the possibility of trying something? ( their regime’s survival is their number one priority so the answer is no )

So… what else is new?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

They are just trying to not be trampled by the interests of others.

Interestingly, they seem to exist in a problematic feedback loop at this point in time: A) North Korea saber-rattles against Japan for intrusion during the Greater East Asian War, B) Other nations see North Korea as militant and dangerous so that they make efforts to disarm them and C) North Korea builds its military might to defend against foreign interests. Starts with A and now cycles between B and C. It is like a computer program bug now. North Korea needs to debug their program even though that would be difficult under existing pressures.

I'm surprised they haven't killed that Sea of Japan yet. They've certainly bombed the crap out of it enough.

Awwww, he's got friends. He just wants to get attention from the Yanks. He's not impressing anyone here.

Little kim must be desperate.

He wants us to think he's Michael Jackson - 'I'm BAD, I'm BAD! You know it! And the whole world has to answer right now, everybody's gonna say -'Who's BAD?'.

You're not, Kimbo.

Do you remember Slodoban Milosevic of Serbia and Montenegro? He destroyed Yugoslavia with his genocides, wars and abuses. Terrible hair style too. Not to mention Traitortrump's disgusting toupee.

And I don't think Kimmy's screaming stunt is going to impress VP Kamala either.

ahead of planned military drills by South Korean and U.S. forces involving an aircraft carrier

So NK is bad for launching a test missile as a response but the US and its vassal partner, South Korea can hold military drills as a practice for attacking the north? Love the hypocrisy.

And then many complain that Japan is the aggressor in that part of the world, smh

"North Korea's launch of a ballistic missile is an act of grave provocation that threatens the peace and security of the Korean peninsula and international community," South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

what a joke!, G7 made thousand of missile tests everywhere on the planet to master their technology, why not NK??

Hamada said it fell outside Japan's exclusive economic zone and there were no reports of problems with shipping or air traffic.

I love this guy hair style! This guy is the new North Korean Elvis!

It is not really any different to other nations testing their missiles. China, America, Russia and European militaries are testing armaments every year. North Korea may be a pariah state, but they have the same rights as others to test missile systems.

Is it a danger to the Korean peninsula because of where they tested it? Or is it because some object to anything they do militarily? Stop making these things news items unless they are doing something strange or dangerous that nobody else is doing.

Hypocrisy is in many posts including the above. South Korea and the US have military drills practicing the defense of the South from another North Korean invasion. It is Russia and China that conduct drills aimed at attacking other nations.

Well it was provoked by this:

The launch comes after the arrival of the nuclear-powered American aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan in South Korea to participate in joint drills with South Korean forces

They're sales pitches

Just keep provoking them.

They will eventually run out of missiles.

Problem fixed.
