Posted on 05/09/2019 2:32:51 AM PDT by AmericanInTokyo
North Korea has test-fired at least one unidentified projectile from a missile base just five days after its first rocket and missile launch since 2017.
The projectile was launched from a medium-range ballistic missile base as South Korean, American and Japanese officials meet in Seoul to discuss North Korea amid fears that tensions could escalate again.
South Korea's military said the projectile was fired from Sino-ri in an eastwards direction at 4.30pm local time on Thursday.

--South Korean Joint Chiefs announced
--Japan Defense Ministry working to confirm what kind of vehicles or vehicles or launch particulars
--Believed trajectory was across North Korea to the opposite side (unconfirmed)
--No statement from Pyongyang
--Prime Minister Abe appeared before cameras just now. Very short, very terse, "no direct threat" statement
--It should be noted the chief US negotiator Stephen Beigun is in the region. Such launches often occur when the US is meeting a top level with Japan or South Korea in strategy meetings.
--This occurred only four hours before the 2-year anniversary ceremony of ROK President Moon to be live on KBS TV (an embarrassment)
--This particular base in Pyongan-do Province is known to be for the launch of short-range Scud missiles, single-stage, mobile liquid propellant No-dong medium-range ballistic missile, etc.
I believe this is an undeclared NK site. This is a sat photo of just a portion of the launch complex up there.
Pay attention you English speaking/reading North Korean agents who read Free Republic daily!
The projectile was launched from a medium-range ballistic missile base?
The projectile , thought to consist of 50 pounds of frozen defecant from Kim Jong Il, was launched from a medium-range ballistic outhouse using a Hooflungdung type III missile.
As the projectile thawed, it spread dear leader’s digestive by product over the sea and land in an attempt to improve crops and fisheries.
This latest defecant missile is a said to be a vast improvement to the Taepodung II missile platform, while modernization also has been developing on the intercontinental Dippydung III, involving massive defecant payloads which have accumulated from the Kim family for many generations.
Its YOUR dung!
He’s so ronery!
Good one. I actually got a good laugh over that one.
Only thing is that, Kim Jong Un’s droppings actually are a national security secret (I am NOT making this up!!), and they fiercely guard the Great Leader’s trails ending up with anyone outside the DPRK inner circle. Special toilets, returning back to Pyongyang with his “projectiles” intact so they cannot be swiped and analyzed by the good guys. Weird. The strangest cult-regime on the planet.
I knew about Kim’s defecant security fetish.
Its ALL being saved and added to every missile payload they launch!
Satire and ridicule are fail safe ways to attack all fascist regimes like North Korea.Winston Churchill used this approach on Hitler and it worked extremely well.
So the question on these missile launches is Hooflungdung ?
Kim is so ronery.
He wants attention to his wine and cognac cellars.
Can you add me too your ping list please?
Used to have one in the old days.
Will have to make up a new one. Sure
Hurting China’s big advantage and trade over us, and also the cia’s use of North Korea with China, and all of the dirty Democrats and probably some Liberal Republicans benefiting financially off of all of that this is hurting them. They don’t think President Trump is capable of focusing on all these things all at once and they do want war with North Korea. Sorry I said dirty Democrats that is essentially redundant.
Kim is daring Trump to increase sanctions
Kim and Xi are running out the clock believing the American Press that Trump has lost power
There should be no more negotiations until Kim capitulates
Should comment additionally here: Joongang Ilbo daily news in Seoul is reporting that the government of Moon Jae In in Seoul is “downplaying” this latest provocation, because they do not want be embarrassed. They are witholding comment, and these launches occurred just the day after South Korea was promised by the US Government that they would neither support nor oppose South Korea’s new food shipments to the North. The reading was this was insulting on the part of the North, but they don’t want to make a bigger deal out of it than necessary. But FAO spokesperson Costa had said the train had already left the station, the food aid was approved for being sent to the North three weeks from now, and and then they just decided to provocate anyway.
Three should be much higher tariffs until Xi gives on.
Agree that all negotiations should be suspended and nothing more given, because once again they are acting with the Great Shakedown approach, the temper tantrums, the threats, the ratcheting things up piece by piece like slicing salami, stuff that always paid off in the past. They have learned this bad behavior through Carter, (not Reagan nor Bush to my knowledge), then Clinton, Bush II and Obama. They have to be ‘de-learned’ of this bad behavior.
SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea launched two missile-launching missiles in the eastern Pacific Ocean this afternoon, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. The launch vehicle was launched at about 4:29 am and 4:49 pm, with a range of 420 km and 270 km, respectively, and a maximum altitude of 50 km. It is only five days that North Korea shot projectiles after the last four days. Compared to what the North Koreans shot up to 240 kilometers a day ago, the maximum range has also doubled. Pyongyang is a place where North Korea has fired a missile in the past, such as Hwaseong 12. The Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missile is a short-range missile, but the US intelligence community is analyzing the exact aircraft. As for the launch vehicle, Japan said, "No ballistic missile flight has been confirmed in the Japanese territory or the exclusive economic zone," he said. "It is not a situation that will have an immediate impact on Japan's security at this time." The Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said,
Don’t you know that Dear Leader has no anus? It was in all of the papers. (Really, it was...not kidding.)
