So while we were all busy about our dinner plans yesterday evening it was the wee hours of the morning in North Korea when Kim Jong Un and his crew of the criminally insane were huddled around the red button.
At just before 6am local time, North Korea launched yet another ICBM, this time over Japan in a defiant test of the resolve of the U.S. and its allies.
Japan made no attempt to shoot it down, which may have signaled to Kim that he has a clear pass to continue his taunting of the Japanese island.
What exactly his endgame is in all this isn’t really clear, but then again who can discern the mind of a psychopath?
As Redstate pointed out, the launch was essentially the latest middle finger to the White House.
So President Trump responded indicating that “all options are on the table.”
The only question is when exactly we’ll send special forces to take Kim out.
Where’s SEAL Team 6 when we need them?
Here’s more from Redstate…
Kim Jong Un has ramped up his saber rattling. Reportedly his latest missile test launched a projectile that traveled over Japan.
The Japanese government has warned that a North Korean missile is headed toward the Tohoku region at the northern end of the country, according to Japanese broadcaster NHK.
NHK also reported that Japan took no action to shoot down the projectile.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters that it appeared that a ballistic missile was fired and that it flew over the country.
South Korea’s Yonhap, citing the military, said that Pyongyang fired a ballistic missile which flew through Japan’s airspace.
A South Korean military official told NBC News that the projectile was fired around 5:57 a.m. local time.
NHK said that the government has urged people in Tohoku to take refuge in solid buildings or underground shelters.
