Basically leading with short dispatches saying the North Koreans did this at around 0906 am local Saturday (8:06 pm eastern USA) in Korea/Japan, about 90 minutes ago, into the Sea of Japan, traveling 70 to 200 kilometers from a launch site near Wonsan on DPRK east coast.
(Report in Japanesebecause fast breaking)
Conservative Sankei Shimbun news, Tokyo
The Chinese are getting worried about Trump’s resiliance. I assume they had been betting on the coup. Their last card to play is Little Rocket Man before they fold. The president’s got this.
Sounds nuts but...
Have you ever wondered if the Norks have sometimes acted as a Deep State asset..?
Every time the libs find themselves on the ropes?
Something like this happens.
What if Japan launched some missiles that fell into the sea a few miles off the coast of NK?

Here we go...
Guess he’s going back to his old methods.........
He wants the sanctions lifted. Ain’t gonna happen.
I guess its time for suffocating sanctions. Worst case we can flatten Pyongyang after the election.
The North Koreans and the Democrats are celebrating.
Correction: Should read short range missile instead. Info still coming in. No detection of the launch by US as it occurred. South Korean JCS confirms post facto. Working on it....
Well Diane Feinstein had a Chinese “spy” driving her for 10years. I guarantee there is no coincidence.
Rogue nation gonna rogue.
Talk about collusion.
Guess the next step (again) is to try and drag US into war in the Pacific.
Back to square one for the Communists Left ((again)).
Quoting from an article I found, on this launch:
“During the diplomacy that followed a rocky 2017, Kim Jong Un said that the North would not test nuclear devices or ICBMs.
This short-range missile would not violate that self-imposed moratorium. It may instead be a way to register his displeasure with Washington and the state of talks meant to provide sanctions relief for disarmament without having the diplomacy collapse.”
(at the end of the article)
From NHK Japan :
“The South Korean military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff says North Korea has conducted a missile launch. The North reportedly launched the short-range missile from Wonsan in the eastern part of the country at about 9:06 a.m. local time. The missile is said to have traveled eastward.
The South Korean military is gathering information on the launch together with the US military.”
The only way Lil Dong is going to give up his nukes is when they’re pried from his carbonized hands.
Or one of his, soon to be dead, generals is acting out!
Bingo. Starvation on the horizon again for the Norks cause once again the crops failed. He pulled out the tried and tested Nork book of strategy but he is gonna get bupkis. There is a new sheriff in town.
A message that, the generals still hold power and Kim is a figure head.
This is deep state all day
Not really. Its self generated. Its all internal. They did this under Bush. Clinton, Obama. Trump. Party does not matter to them.
It is a tantrum.
They want stuff.
The issue always is, to avoid peninsular nuclear war, will Washington give them something as they always have.
