  1. Sounds like they’re threatening another overflight of Japan. They issued a similar threat earlier this month, though that one was more vague.

    Approaching Kim’s end of the year “deadline”, we may see North Korea resume ICBM tests in 2020. Its Hwasong-15 ICBM has only been tested once on a non-standard trajectory, it could use more tests on a standard one at long range, requiring an overflight of Japan.

    The last times North Korean missiles flew over Japan was in August and September 2017, when two intermediate range missiles flew over Hokkaido. An ICBM would likely be tested in a more southerly direction, to avoid a flight path towards the US, flying over more populated areas (thought it would be high up in space at that stage of its trajectory, at an altitude of hundreds of miles).

    Back in 2017 the overflight tests were hinted at beforehand as well, albeit in a more indirect way. North Korea threatened to test launch a salvo of missiles into the waters near Guam, specifically naming the Japanese provinces the missiles would be flying over. The first IRBM launch over Japan followed shortly afterwards.

  2. Japan should be ready to shoot the missile down ASAP.

  3. If any country deserves some harsh retaliation it’s NK, but everyone knows all their saber-rattling is just bullshit to blow sunshine up supreme leaders ass. When will we, the Human Race, stop allowing these moronic idiots to rise to power? Talking about you Donnie.

  4. Kim is going to push the world too far one of these times and the US is going to say enough is enough and blow that country to dust.

    Trump has been an absolute no new wars president so far and I really think that’s something he believes in. Shooting massive missiles over Japan is going to piss a lot of people off. Not enough to go to war, but it will piss people off.
