North Korea Fires Ballistic Missile into Sea in Latest Challenge to Joe Biden

North Korea on Sunday (local time) fired off what is believed to be a ballistic missile into the sea in its latest challenge to Joe Biden.

This is North Korea’s 7th weapons launch this year alone.

AP reported:

North Korea on Sunday fired at least one suspected ballistic missile into the sea — its 7th round of weapons launches this month — in an apparent attempt to pressure the Biden administration over long-stalled nuclear negotiations.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff didn’t immediately say whether the weapon was ballistic or how far it flew. Japan’s Defense Ministry and Prime Minister’s office said the weapon was possibly a ballistic missile but didn’t immediately provide further details.

The launch came three days after North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea on Thursday. The North also flight-tested a pair of purported long-range cruise missiles on Tuesday while vowing to strengthen its nuclear “war deterrent” and build more powerful weapons.

It was reported that North Korea tested two long-range cruise missiles while “vowing to strengthen its nuclear “war deterrent” and build more powerful weapons.” – according to AP.

What was Joe Biden doing on Tuesday?

Shopping in DC and eating ice cream.

Last March, Pyongyang fired off several missiles after it was reported that North Korea is not responding to any behind-the-scenes diplomatic outreach by Biden’s Admin, according to Reuters.

When Biden was asked about North Korea’s saber-rattling last year, he laughed at the question and walked away.
