North Korea: Four ballistic missiles fired into sea

Via Reddit: Three of them fell into Japan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) after flying some 1,000km (620 miles), in what PM Shinzo Abe called a "new stage of threat".

They were fired from the Tongchang-ri region, near the North's border with China, the South Korean military said.

The type of missile in unclear but the North is banned from any missile or nuclear tests by the UN.

A South Korean military official said a launch had taken place at 07:36 local time Monday (22:36 GMT Sunday) and was being investigated to determine the type of projectile used.

The US military said later it had detected and tracked a launch but had determined that it did not pose a threat to North America.

"the North is banned from any missile or nuclear tests by the UN."

And the League of Nations was upset when Japan invaded Manchuria.

Everybody wants to test Trump these days.

The NORK regime exists at China's pleasure. China is a bad faith player on the world stage so long as they permit this human tragedy to continue. But nobody wants to call China's bluff; they just want to relocate there.

Ever wonder what Jim Rogers - George Soros' Asian doppelgänger -- thinks about North Korea?

'It’s very exciting. The kid has been opening up North Korea,' Mr. Rogers said in an interview, referring to Kim Jong-un, the country’s ruler..

Rogers, like his pal Soros, wants to sow chaos because he too is heavily invested in shorting America.

How is it that people like Soros reputation doesn't seem to suffer hardly nor noticeably?

Not that many people know about him. And, doubtless, the Lefty media fronts for him because a) he funds all that SJW stuff and b) he owns them.
