North Korea Launches More Missiles

The bizarre leader of North Korea has been in the news a lot as of late.  A few weeks ago he ordered his half brother killed while he was in Indonesia.  The assassins used nerve gas toxins mixed in shaving cream and wiped it on his face while he was at an airport checking the flight board.

Today he is in the news because he launched 4 ballistic missiles and flew them 600 miles before splashing them down in the ocean West of Japan.  Had the missiles been launched from eastern North Korea they could have easily hit Japan.

The chubby dictator who demands worship as a god says the missiles were a practice attack on US forces stationed at military bases in Japan.

Nuclear-armed North Korea said Tuesday its missile launches were training for a strike on US bases in Japan, as global condemnation of the regime swelled.

Three of the four missiles fired Monday came down provocatively close to US ally Japan, in waters that are part of its exclusive economic zone, representing a challenge to US President Donald Trump.

In separate phone calls, Trump -- whose rhetoric on the campaign trail had raised doubts about the issue -- reaffirmed Washington's "ironclad commitment" to Japan and South Korea.

The US will demonstrate to Pyongyang that there were "very dire consequences" for its actions, the White House said in a statement.

The United Nations Security Council scheduled an emergency meeting for Wednesday after a request by Washington and Tokyo to discuss additional measures following the launch.

Under UN resolutions, Pyongyang is barred from any use of ballistic missile technology, and the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said on Twitter that the world "won't allow" North Korea to continue on its "destructive path".

But six sets of UN sanctions since its first nuclear test in 2006 have failed to halt its drive for what it insists are defensive weapons.

- 'Feasting his eyes' -

Kim Jong-Un gave the order for the drill to start, the North's official Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.

"Feasting his eyes on the trails of ballistic rockets", he praised the Hwasong artillery unit that carried it out, it said.

"The four ballistic rockets launched simultaneously are so accurate that they look like acrobatic flying corps in formation, he said," the agency added, referring to Kim.

The military units involved are "tasked to strike the bases of the US imperialist aggressor forces in Japan in contingency", KCNA said.

The Korean version of the KCNA report said the North's missile launch demonstrated its readiness to "wipe out" enemy forces with a "merciless nuclear strike".

A series of photographs published by the North's Rodong Sinmun newspaper showed Kim watching the missiles rise into the air and another of him smiling gleefully, clapping with other officials.

Jesus said there will be wars and rumors of war as His return draws closer.  Of course people have been killing and warring with each other since Cain killed Abel....but please remember that more people have died in wars on planet earth in the last 100 years than in the previous 6000 years combined.

Today there seems to be more and more rumors and war talk by Russia, Turkey, Lebanon, China, India, Pakistan, Jordan and numerous others.  It seems to be increasing....kind of like birth pangs.
