North Korea Is Playing With Fire, They Just Successfully Tested….

Little rocket man is at it again, stirring the pot and trying to get the world to recognize them. They have just broken numerous U.N. treaties in their latest weapon test. They claim to have fired a hypersonic missile and successfully hit their target dead on.  So it’s another country that is bucking and with Biden in power, we will probably do nothing about.

The test launch clearly demonstrated the control and stability of the hypersonic gliding warhead which combined the multi-stage gliding jump flight and the strong lateral movement. Having been detached after its launch, the missile made a 120 km lateral movement in the flight distance of the hypersonic gliding warhead from the initial launch azimuth to the target azimuth and precisely hit a set target 700 km away,” a report in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper claimed.

Hypersonic weapons, which fly at speeds in excess of Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound, could pose crucial challenges to missile defense systems because of their speed and maneuverability.

The U.S. Indo-Pacific Command acknowledged the missile test in a statement but did not confirm it represented new hypersonic technology.

“While we have assessed that this event does not pose an immediate threat to U.S. personnel or territory, or to our allies, the ballistic missile launch highlights the destabilizing impact of the DPRK’s illicit weapons program,” the statement said. “The U.S. commitment to the defense of the Republic of Korea and Japan remains ironclad.”

At the Pentagon, spokesman John Kirby said the U.S. is still assessing what exactly North Korea tested.

“We actually don’t have a greater level of detail about this particular launch other than that we have every reason to believe it was a ballistic missile launch, which, of course, is a violation of various U.N. Security Council resolutions,” Kirby said.”

While North Korea appears to have made progress in the development of a hypersonic missile, it still needs more test flights to determine whether it meets its tactical objectives or how advanced a hypersonic weapon it could develop, said Lee Choon Geun, an expert and honorary research fellow at South Korea’s Science and Technology Policy Institute.

A photo of the launch shows that the upper parts of the missiles launched in September and this week have different shapes. Lee said this suggests that North Korea is testing two versions of warheads for a missile still under development or it is actually developing two different types of hypersonic missiles.”

It seems like all of our adversaries are stoked that Biden is in Office now. They have been mobilizing and talking big about what they are going to do, without a single concern about reprecussions from the United States. I guess they saw that Biden couldn’t find his way out of a paper bag or execute a simple evacuation from a country we occupied for 20 years.
