Kim Jong Un isn’t one to play by anyone else’s rules.
One week before your neighbor country’s presidential innauguration probably isn’t the time to start firing off ballistic missiles.
But that’s EXACTLY what Kim Jong Un just did.
Yoon Suk Yeol is set to be sworn in as the leader of South Korea in just a few days, but that did not deter Kim Jong Un from doing what many in the world are finding very inappropriate:
Launch a missile 37 miles high in the air and have it travel over 373 miles before crashing into the sea of Japan.
Now, the world will know what Kim Jong Un is capable of.
Perhaps more intentionally, now Yoon Suk Yeol will know what North Korea is capable of.
Maybe even during his inauguration.
American authorities concluded “that this event does not pose an immediate threat to U.S. personnel or territory, or to our allies, the missile launch highlights the destabilizing impact of the DPRK’s illicit weapons program. The U.S. commitment to the defense of the Republic of Korea and Japan remains ironclad.”
