North Korea Removes Missiles from Launch Site

» by in: North Korea

Isn’t it amazing how news like this is barely mentioned in the media after having two weeks of non-stop media coverage last month that we are all about to die in a thermo-nuclear war?

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say North Korea has taken a step back from its recent escalation of regional tensions by removing from their launch site a set of medium-range ballistic missiles that had been readied for possible test firing.
The two U.S. officials who confirmed the North Korean move Tuesday spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss a matter involving sensitive U.S. intelligence.
Two Musudan missiles at a site in eastern North Korea had been in what American officials described as launch-ready status for some weeks. It’s not clear why they removed the missiles in recent days, but Pentagon press secretary George Little said on Monday that U.S. officials have seen a “provocation pause” by North Korea.

    The reason they moved the missiles back from the coast is that the water spray and onshore wind kept blowing out the matches they were using to light the fuses. With the knowledge that bottle rockets can sometimes go all crazy, Lil’ Kim made the decision that it was not worth the chance of blowing up his own capital by launching them in a quiet valley.
