CNBC.Com

North Korea fired a ballistic missile that passed over Japan early Tuesday, and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had strong words about its gravity.

Abe said the missile was an unprecedented, serious and grave threat to Japan. The Japanese prime minister also said he would ask the United Nations to up the pressure on Pyongyang.

A South Korean military official told NBC News that the missile was fired around 5:57 a.m. local time on Tuesday. The official said that the missile flew for about 2,700 kilometers (1,678 miles), reaching a maximum altitude of 550 kilometers (342 miles). U.S. Pacific Command projected that the missile splashed down at 6:29 a.m. local time.

 Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that the North Korean missile broke into three pieces and fell into the sea.

  1. The last portion of the video is one reason that Trump is making sure he has all of our allies and the majority of the people on his team on his side. there are a lot of Deep State people still in positions of power in DC and they are limiting what he can do. It wasn’t too long ago that one of the Obama people said there is no military option with North Korea. In that he was giving the Deep States opinion and issuing a warning of the reaction of the Deep State if Trump orders a military strike without Kim firing his missiles to land in close proximity to US territory.

    I never thought a day would come when the President of the US would have to worry about if the US military would obey if given a legal command. The rule of law has been destroyed and we are now facing the problem of what to do to:

    A) clean out the Deep State people.

    B) restore the rule of law.

    C) protect the US and our allies.

    A lot of people are accusing Trump of breaking his word and joining the Deep State, what we all have to remember is that while Trump knows who some of the Deep State people are there are others who he doesn’t know. And that there are a lot of people in both parties in Congress who would support an kinetic coup if Trump moves too fast before he has gained more control over the government. If he is removed there will be a very major violent reaction from his voters but this would hamper the US in our reaction to Korea and Iran. This lack of control is probably why he appointed so many swamp dwellers to his administration and why he has been getting his loyalists our of the line of fire. If he has to order a strike on North Korea is would probably be a good idea for him to be outside of DC when he orders the strike, giving that order might trigger the kinetic coup and he would want his loyalists to be out of the White House and DC so they couldn’t be seized by the swamp dwellers.

    If you think this scenario is far fetched until the staged riot in Charlottesville how many people thought that a Mayor and Governor (I know there are rumors the orders came from higher up) would order a riot where they would funnel the side that was being peaceful into the antifa ranks so they could be beaten with clubs?

    • It’s something I hadn’t thought about, but it isn’t far-fetched.
      The mini-junta of DeepState generals, their masters, and all the useful idiots – Get them thinking they’re in control. Then PT with his own people elsewhere, taking care of business.

  2. It is certainly possible for Japan to accidentally fire an anti-missile missile in the direction of North Korea and have it land a mile or so outside the main NOKO port. Talk is really cheap in this situation.
