North Korea Conducts Short Range Missile Test In Response to Key Resolve Exercise

» by in: North Korea

Just like with the recent crossing the maritime border with a patrol boat, test firing missiles into the Sea of Japan is another well known trick in the North Korean playbook:

North Korea has test-fired four short-range missiles into the sea, Seoul’s defence ministry said, in an apparent show of force to coincide with the South’s joint military exercises with the US.

A ministry spokesman said the missiles, with an estimated range of 200km (125 miles), were fired off the east coast of North Korea.

“Our military will maintain tight vigilance in preparation for additional launches or any military provocation from the North,” the spokesman said.

North Korea regularly carries out short-range missile tests, and has used them before to display its anger at the annual military exercises. Observers said the tests were unlikely to trigger a significant rise in military tensions.  [The Guardian]

You can read more at the link, but the South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin says the ROK military is prepared to respond to any North Korean provocation:

“The Kim Jong-un regime has continuously developed nuclear and missile programs, and increased conventional weapons,” Kim said in a congratulatory address. “It is very hard to predict what will come next as Kim Jong-un could hurriedly make a wrong judgment under the unstable political situation…Our military is prepared to counter any provocations.”  [Yonhap]

    Send four missles back to North Korea. One aimed at the base of that giant Kim Il-Sung statue. Aim the rest for the heart of North Korea’s capital. One filled with choco pies, one filled with CD copies of North Korea’s first lady’s porn movies, and one containing the UPP elected officials and Dennis Rodman. It’ll be an interesting day up north.

    “CD copies of North Korea’s first lady’s porn movies”

    What good will that do? If you want the people to be able to watch them you’d have to load up a missle with 8-Tracks and LP’s.

    Smokes, The Fraud might be right. It depends on where you drop the missiles. If you drop in Pyongyang then DVDs & Blu-Rays are needed, if you drop them in in BFK, then you’ll need to drop DVD players & generators with them.

    What?! How many Blu-Ray devices do you think exist in that entire country? I’d be shocked if it were more than 100; of which 99 belong to the government.

    Smokes your assessment is correct, but how else are the party members going to get the Blu-Rays unless we send them? We can pack our missile with mostly DVDs. I don’t think Fat Boy is going to hand out the Blu-Ray version at all. Plus they make as good coasters as DVDs do. (FYI I’m using a old employers “Welcome to our company” DVD/software installation disc right now)

    That sir is not fiscal responsibility! :x

    However, I will turn a blind eye while you enact your plan; this way I can report you for FWA and get the 10% reward for snitching. :o

    Smokes. Sorry I forgot, for a moment I thought I was a Congressman. That was scary! You can pass GO but you won’t get to collect the $200…oh hey while your eyes are closed, would you mind handing me the guidance gyroscope?
