Reports: North Korean Missile Flies over Japan, Breaks Apart into Pacific Ocean

JAPANESE OFFICIAL:  PROVOCATION POSES “GRAVE THREAT”

(Aug. 28, 2017) — As overseas news sources first reported, CNN Philippines reports that the Pentagon has confirmed that North Korea has launched a missile which sailed over northern Japan and disintegrated over the Pacific Ocean.

The Associated Press has described the missile as “ballistic.”

Since early this year, North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong-Un, has threatened his neighbors, Europe and the U.S. with nuclear attacks and launched a number of missiles both successfully and unsuccessfully.

The communist nation is a pariah in the region and the world which is willing to allow its people to starve as it aggressively pursues its nuclear ambitions.

Several weeks ago, it was feared that Jong-Un’s threat against the United States would be realized when he put the U.S. territory of Guam in his crosshairs, indicating that he was contemplating launching an attack there in mid-August.  Tensions were somewhat diffused after President Donald Trump retorted that any attack on the U.S., its allies or any other country would be met with unprecedented “fire and fury.” At that point, Jong-Un appeared to back away from his menacing stance.

On Saturday, however, Pyongyang launched “three short-range ballistic missiles,” one of which reportedly failed just after takeoff.  The other two flew a distance of approximately 250 km, or about 155 miles, according to the U.S. military.

Some reports suggest that more than one missile was fired on Monday evening, which was Tuesday morning in Pyongyang.  The UK Daily Mail reported that “It is the first time North Korea has fired a projectile over Japan since 2009,” but The Daily Caller said that “North Korea has not launched a missile over Japan since 1998.”

According to the UK Independent, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga described the missile launch as “an unprecedented, serious and grave threat.”

    Since CNN and the Associate Press are mainstream media, and since the mainstream media is supporting the war mongering US federal government and US military-industrial complex, this story should be evaluated seriously before believing it to be true.

    Since the missile was apparently destroyed, it would appear that actual verification of the source can never be proved. But, as an aside, who also has missiles and who wants war with Korea? Gee… I dunno. How about the US?

    North Korea is not the threat to peace. The United States, israel, and their allies are the historically proven threat to peace.

    To me, until proven otherwise, this is just another false flag event.
