BREAKING!! Rocket Man Kim Jong Un SHOOTS OFF a ‘new-type’ tactical guided weapon….

The media is freaking out over North Korea firing off a tactical weapon about an hour ago:

The Pentagon has not confirmed.



More from the Hill:

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has supervised the test firing of a “new-type tactical guided weapon,” North Korean state media said Wednesday, without elaborating on what exactly the weapon is.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said that Kim called the weapon’s development “an event of very weighty significance.”

“Saying that the completion of the development of the weapon system serves as an event of very weighty significance in increasing the combat power of the People’s Army, [Kim] noted that it is a very good thing that the field of national defense science has waged a dynamic struggle for attaining core research goals,” KCNA said, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

“After watching the power of the new-type tactical guided weapon, [Kim] pointed out that our national defense scientists and workers in the field of the munitions industry performed another great work in increasing the country’s defense capabilities,” KCNA said.

This isn’t as bad as a ballistic missile, but it’s definitely a provocation. And it’s too bad because although Trump’s meetings haven’t resulted in anything substantive, at least Kim Jong Un had shut down the missile testing. Experts believe though, that he’s just as dangerous, and he’s using this time to strengthen his stranglehold on his country. We shall see.

A small country can make great technological progress as long as they don’t mind starving their people to do so.

Our intelligence agencies have decoded the operating instructions for the new North Korean rocket:

“Caution – emits sparks. Use only under close adult supervision. For outdoor use only. Place on level surface. Do not hold in hand. Light fuse and get away. Made in China.”

Yah, this is not good. This is more substantial than the report, which we already know doesn’t indict anyone… yawn.

One of the worst things is that timing could make it seem like Trump wants to distract from a report that clears him…. and all that baggage.

And it’s Easter, who wants to start a war on Easter weekend? My guess is there will be a fairly strong reaction, I hope they feel they can hold off until Monday at least.

The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor was on a Sunday. The ’68 offensive in Vietnam was during the Tet holiday. In fact, George Washington attacked the Hessians on Christmas Eve. I’m sure that there are plenty of other examples, but that’s all off the top of my head.

On the eve of Mueller report? Coincidence!? Can you imagine the outrage from left if it was reversed? What they’re doing no doubtly weakens POTUS and this country, but then, it is what they want!

The part where you appear to be suggesting some manner of active cooperation between the Kim regime and Mueller, or whoever else.

If that’s not what you meant, feel free to clarify.

In any event, in regard to his “diplomatic engagement” with this porcine lunatic, POTUS has done quite an effective job of weakening himself, and by extension, this country.

Ya, I didn’t mean to infer that there was active collusion between kim and Mueller; however, I do think they have a lot in common with their authoritarian police state tactics. Like Bongino said on his podcast, Mueller is not stupid and he had to know in the first few months of this investigation if not earlier that there was nothing to see there and if he had honor and character, he would have closed it down right away. Instead, he allowed his henchmen to go on a fishing expedition. What I was implying is that Kim is using the opportunity when Trump and the US is at its weakest to pull a stunt like this–there is no better time than now to attack this country or to do something knowing full well the president is too weak to respond. The President represents the country, so when Democrats are constantly… Read more »

Trump should never meet with this jerk until after both Pompeo and Bolden have both met with little Rocketman and sealed a deal.In the meantime start all sanctions that are available.
