North Korea Launches More Rockets Into Sea

The unpredictable North Korean state has once again simply caused trouble by launching three rockets into the nearby sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.

The missiles did not seem to be ICBM (Intercontinental ballistic missile)  These missiles were short range, and are just another show that's being put on for the world.

Analysts have said that these launches are very possibly a response to the ongoing military alliances between the United States and South Korea.  North Korean considers these military exercises and alliances preparation for an invasion and thus dislikes them.

The military exercises conducted in South Korea are said to be mostly done on computer simulations.

Melissa Hanham from the Center for Nonproliferation Studies in California said: “When they [North Korea] fire salvos of missiles, it’s usually because they’re training, so in a way, they’re doing their own exercises,”

According to North Korea's state run media(KCNA), Kim Jong Un the leader of North Korea said to its special forces The North Korean People's Army “should think of mercilessly wiping out the enemy with arms only and occupying Seoul at one go and the southern half of Korea,”

Now it looks like North Korea still has a long way to go with their rockets because apparently two of them fell into the sea. They flew around 150 Miles before falling into the sea. The last missile seems to have blown up almost immediately. This is what is said to have happened to the rockets. They were fired during a period of half an hour.

a spokesman for the U.S. Pacific Command,  Cmdr. Dave Benham  said: “We are working with our interagency partners on a more detailed assessment and we will provide a public update if warranted,”

What North Korea has done once again, is a violation of what the international community wants. The international community wants these tests, launches, and more to stop.

The White House said that President Donald Trump had been briefed on the launches. They're also monitoring the entire issue.

North Korea was considering attacking a U.S  territory earlier in August. Guam the territory that was threatened issued a fact sheet on nuclear threats that gave citizens some helpful tips on what they should do if they found themselves in a nuclear attack.
