North Korea is escalating tensions even further in the Pacific.
They’ve threatened their neighbors and even the United States with nuclear war, and have tested and launched several missiles. But this latest act is sure to ruffle a few more feathers and has the entire world on high alert!
North Korea has fired what is believed to be a submarine-launched ballistic missile off the east coast of the Korean peninsula, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said Saturday.
The missile was fired at 6:30 p.m. local time (5:30 a.m. ET), South Korean officials said.
The action comes a week after an apparently unsuccessful attempt to fire a missile, South Korean and U.S. officials said April 15.
South Korea’s military did not specify what sort of missile was part of the April 15 test, but South Korean media reports said it involved an intermediate-range Musudan missile.
What will be done about this? Will the South Koreans respond? Will we? North Korea keeps pushing the envelope, but when does the rest of the world start to push back?
But North Korea might have bigger problems. Namely a massive volcano:
