New Missile Reignites World War III Fears
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1963: U.S. President John F. Kennedy assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald while riding in an open-topped motorcade in Dallas, Texas.
North Korea test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland, escalating fears of a potential World War III.
The missile landed in the sea roughly 130 miles west of Hokkaido, Japan.
The White House issued a statement condemning the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) for its testing of a long-range ballistic missile.
“The President has been briefed on the situation and he and his national security team will continue close consultations with Allies and partners,” the White House said.
The While House called the launch “a brazen violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions and needlessly raises tensions and risks destabilizing the security situation in the region.”
“This action demonstrates that the DPRK continues to prioritize its unlawful weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs over the well-being of its people,” the statement read.
The White House urged all countries to condemn the action and call on the DPRK to enter “serious negotiations.”
“The door has not closed on diplomacy, but Pyongyang must immediately cease its destabilizing actions and instead choose diplomatic engagement. The United States will take all necessary measures to ensure the security of the American homeland and Republic of Korea and Japanese allies,” the statement concluded.
Last week, North Korea warned of a “fiercer” response if the U.S. military increases presence in the region, per the BBC.

Fatbot, as long as you are trying to get the workd to think you are a world power and play your little game, the US will always have a presence to protect South Korea, Japan, and other areas.
The moreyou keep up your stupidity and tantrums the more sanctions and force will be used on you. You are so lucky that the US didn’t annhilate North Korea years ago. Your granpa and daddy couldn’t do anything but play dictator. Your people may be brainwashed but the rest of the world knows better including China and Russia.
North Korea is insugnificant and doesn’t add to the world only chaos and destruction. It’s like handling a difficult man child!
They could have destroyed the red commies and the north koreans if Truman would have let Gen McCarther and the army do their job. You cant’ fight a war having you limited to the 38 parallel and stop. The so called commander in chief is a misnomer. Just another example of stupidity of people running this great country.
