North Korea test-fired a short-range Scud ballistic missile off its eastern coast, the U.S. military said Sunday.
The North Korean communists hope to one day send a nuke-tipped missile to the U.S. mainland and destroy a U.S. city. They might be content with blasting a U.S. military base.
The short-range ICBM flew 280 miles and landed in the Sea of Japan after six minutes according to the South Korean military. It fell within Japan’s exclusive maritime economic zone and Japan has lodged an official complaint.
While North Korea is believed to be several years away from hitting the U.S., every test brings it closer.
The North has a strong arsenal of short- and medium-range missiles that target Japan and South Korea and U.S. forces in the region, and it is working to perfect its longer-range missiles, Fox News reported.
Kim Jong Un said their tracking capabilities have greatly improved.
The U.S. believes North Korea can equip their short-range missiles with nuclear warheads. The new liberal South Korean President Moon Jae-in is going to try and set up a policy of cooperation with North Korea.
North Korea has been working with Iran.

Thank Bill Clinton for this fabulous deal allowing North Korea to get the bomb. Obama made pretty much the same deal with Iran. Iran and North Korea now work together on this.
