North Korea Says It Was Trying to Hit US Bases in Japan With Missiles

Nuclear-armed North Korea said Tuesday its missile launches were training for a strike on US bases in Japan, as global condemnation of the regime swelled.

Three of the four missiles fired Monday came down provocatively close to US ally Japan, in waters that are part of its exclusive economic zone, representing a challenge to US President Donald Trump.

In a phone call, Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned that the threat from North Korea had "entered a new stage".

The UN Security Council scheduled an emergency meeting for Wednesday after a request by Washington and Tokyo to discuss additional measures following the launch.

Under UN resolutions, Pyongyang is barred from any use of ballistic missile technology, and the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said on Twitter that the world "won't allow" North Korea to continue on its "destructive path".

Several countries are taunting NK under the pretense of being the US.Think about that for a minute;a continuous barrage of threats and provocation hurled at NK by enemies of the US.Terrorism needs to be re defined.At this moment NK actually thinks we have declared war on them,and I seriously believe our leaders are clueless as to why they have been so aggressive of late.Therefore,that aggression is not without a legit reason.

We have snipers that can hit a target at 2 miles, and they can't figure out how to take care of this problem?

All countries knew that he was living in Switzerland and Sweden when he was in his teens and twenties. As the only logical heir (by birth) to lead NK following his fathers death, he should have been assassinated years ago while living abroad.
Had he been eliminated years ago perhaps this would have changed history for the better.
