North Korea missile test: Latest launch ‘blew up almost immediately’

by FoxNews
April 16, 2017

A North Korean missile fired from the east coast of the country Sunday “blew up almost immediately,” officials said.

The U.S. Pacific Command said the missile, which came near the city of Sinpo, “blew up almost immediately,” but the type of missile was still being assessed.

The failure came one day after Pyongyang celebrated one of the biggest propaganda events of the year – the 105th birthday of the late North Korea founder Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Un’s grandfather.

The failed launch also comes ahead of Vice President Pence’s arrival in Seoul, South Korea for talks about how to handle Kim’s regime. Pence had been in contact with President Trump about the test.

    North Korea launching ICBMs is only a distraction from their real plans for invasion of other countries like Hitler did.

    Just wondering how many “generals” of his Army is the PERV Midget Eliminating This week after the “DUD” launch of his Highly Publicized” MISSILE” and did the USA cause this via CYBER”????????????????????????????? Now that would set off the Midget

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    ICBM’s are passe as a means of a nuclear first strike.

    Our enemies know we can detect and track a ICBM launch back to its point of origin from space, thus accurate retaliation is assured.

    However, that are testing for soft spots to smuggle nukes across the Mexican border.

    …………….Hm, but where to put them.

    How about in the bottom of Yellowstone lake atop the thin 3 mile thick porous cork over the super volcano.

    If that sucker blows, radioactive ash 10 to 3 foot thick all the way to the Ohio valley.

    All farmland, DEAD. Livestock, DEAD. Rivers, DEAD. Fish, DEAD. Transportation as we know it, DEAD. 200 million, DEAD and dying! 75% of the country DEAD in a month and it will continue to erupt for three months.

    This has a high probability precisely because former President Obama, Holder and Congress will not secure the Mexican border and enforce existing immigration laws. They LOVE illegal’s and weak national security!

    No one makes any money sealing the borders or the ports. So Military Industrial Complex Neo-con’s keep pouring money into ABM related Laser$, Satellites, and Mi$$iles and ignore the obvious.

    The next Pearl Harbor will be delivered in an beat up pickup truck on its way north from Mexico.

    And if the Terrorists have a second nuke, drop it off the western flank of La Palma in the Azores and collapse the side of the volcanic Island that is hanging by a thread. The resulting 20-30 meter Tsunami will take out the entire east coast 10 to 20 km inland. I would not be surprised if the Russians had not already planted a large nuclear mine there already to be set off by an ELF wave at their leisure.

    The combined effect would destroy 90% of the country. Yellowstone itself could start a cascading worldwide civilization ending event. But in the eyes of crazed terrorists on the other side of the world with lots of cash and little remorse…why not?

    However take heart, MAYBE we can knock down a ICBM from North Korea with the new airborne laser if the launch is patterned like the staged marsh mellow tests to date. But the Pacific based Laser cannot target a beat up pickup truck crossing the Mexican border in the dead of night hauling a couple nukes to Yellowstone.

    Trump! … make North Korea, China’s problem to solve!

    Revoke China’s MFN (Most Favored Nation) trade status until they disarm North Korea and jail dear dwarf leader. Try that for 3 months.

    China is an unfair trading partner that has manipulated its currency for the last 20 years. MFN created the trade deficit that threatens to bankrupt our nation.

    The Korean war ended in a TRUCE after President Truman failed to back up MacArthur and nuke China. All parties are still technically at war. We in effect made China and North Korea what they are today. We fought China on the ground and Russian pilots in the air. That sorta redefines it as a mini WWIII historically now doesn’t it?

    Our country did not trade with Nazi Germany and Japan while we were at war. Ironic that it’s happening with China during the “TRUCE”, yes?

    Yet our patriotic corporations greedily fall all over themselves to use China’s MFN trade status bestowed by our Government to the detriment of our country and our children’s future.

    Bill Clinton’s administration worked to bring China into the newly created World Trade Organization and to put unconditional MFN treatment for China on a permanent basis. This culminated in an agreement of 15 November 1999 to make China a full member of the WTO.

      And is it NOT time to STOP giving CHINA FOREIGN AID as OBAMA was DOING????

    Kim Jong Un’s rockets are getting an important boost — from China
    By Joby Warrick April 13–from-china/2017/04/12/4893b0be-1a43-11e7-bcc2-7d1a0973e7b2_story.html

    When North Korea launched its Kwangmyongsong-4 satellite into space in February last year, officials heralded the event as a birthday gift for dead leader Kim Jong Il. But the day also brought an unexpected prize for the country’s adversaries: priceless intelligence in the form of rocket parts that fell into the Yellow Sea.

    Entire sections of booster rocket were snagged by South Korea’s navy and then scrutinized by international weapons experts for clues about the state of North Korea’s missile program. Along with motor parts and wiring, investigators discerned a pattern. Many key components were foreign-made, acquired from businesses based in China.

  • Robert Nelson says:

    I am supposing that nuclear payloads release some sort of a signature that we can detect with current technology – using satellites, etc. Common sense tells me this kind of crap of trying to get nukes into or close to the US has been attempted in the past and failed. We will never hear about these things though.

  • Traveller62 says:

    Wylie Coyote learned the hard way not to trust ACME rockets. Maybe “Fat Boy” should take a cue from ole Wylie.

    1. Roxanne says:

      This arrogant, “rollie, pollie”, pudgy, little man is incapable of learning.

  • theseer says:

    too bad the nuke missile didnt do a 180 and land on bad haircut fat boy….
    maybe next one will………….

  • metheoldsarge says:

    What a lot of people do not seem to think about is that North Korea does not need ICBMs to launch nuclear weapons. Building or buying them will only attract attention. After having them, North Korea will be closely watched and that could eliminate the element of surprise.

    Nuclear weapons could be planted on Merchant Ships that could carry them and take out many of our major sea ports to include harbors in the Great Lakes. Commercial and private aircraft could get pretty far inland before a suicide pilot could do quite a lot of damage and cause havoc and panic. WAKE UP AMERICA!

      Nuke(s) in polar orbit over the USA to deliver an EMP attack is doable! North Korea has two satellites up there now in a polar orbit.


      ‘The threat continues to race, hare-like, at an alarming rate’

      Published: 04/24/2016

      ….. the U.S. is aware of the satellites, it is unable to determine their payloads. The federal government hasn’t commented as much on the satellites as it has on North Korea’s ability to launch a missile capable of reaching the U.S.

      W T F??? …………unable to determine their payloads??

  • Reddwarf says:

    Not a word in our local paper about the failure?

    1. snowyriver says:

      Don’t you just love our caring Media ??

        we dont have a media in America anymore…sad day……

          We do but the globalist, illuminati, funded and directed, “Main Stream” Media along with Facebook, Amazon, Google and Youtube are doing their damnedest to censor the only truth telling “alternative”, media. Whatever they do they must never allow the truth to slip out! We might not come to the conclusions they wish us to come too, otherwise! The MSM is not to be trusted as far as they can collectively be thrown!

          1. Retired says:

            All the media outlets care about is ratings and to do that they present what the viewers want whether it is true or not .

        3. bert shaw says:

          MSP Main Stream Propagandists They just report what they are told to report, Just like the COMMIE Demorats, these people are completely incapable of independent thought, They are to STUPID to realize just how STUPID they are

        our caring media really just sucks.

      The only one to take care of fat boy would be China, not only is it their job but duty to that part of the world . If China does nothing it proves they support hin and all US based Companies need to get the hell out of there .

    Lunatics playing with FIRE!
    Time to eliminate the Fat Slob!

    1. Pete says:

      The little tyrant will meet with a Chinese attitude adjustment some time in the not too distant future. His response to that will determine how soon he goes to meet his grandfather, The Chinese do mess around with half steppers like him.

      1. metheoldsarge says:

        I think China has been distancing themselves from North Korea for a long time. I served two tours in Korea. One was in 1967 to 1968 and the other was 1985 to 1986. In each of those times, the Chinese representative rarely showed up at any of the Panmunjom meetings. Those times, it was because a new representative was appointed and was just there to introduce himself. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Chinese send a team in to take out the little child dictator.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Did you just see a Retired General on FOX NEWS give an answer when ask if America played a roll in the missile failure by NK, and he said you probably won’t see any more missile launches go well again for a while!

    2. theseer says:

      yes …he is a constant threat to u.s and other countries…
      LONG PAST DUE TO TAKE OUT FAT BOY…………..and his lil generals with the oversized hats…….

  • used_to_be_a_liberal says:

    So, does Kim execute his scientists?

    1. Traveller62 says:

      Uh, YES!! He even goes so far as to execute his immediate family if he so desires.

      1. used_to_be_a_liberal says:

        you have that right.

  • Webb says:

    What Happened…
    Wonder who suffered for the missile failure…
    UN shows might…while starving a nation – eliminate the Problem!!
