North Korea attempts to launch missile but fails

North Korea attempted to fire a missile it introduced at a massive military parade – but it was an embarrassing failure when the weapon blew up four or five seconds after being launched.

It is thought to be one of the country’s new ‘game-changer’ intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) which was revealed to the world in a display of military might yesterday.

The South Korean defence ministry said it had detected a failed launch from Sinpo – where North Korea’s biggest submarine base is located.

According to a military official, the weapon is ‘presumed to be a new ICBM’ as it is longer than the existing KN-08 or KN-14 missiles.

US defence secretary James Mattis said Donald Trump is ‘aware’ of the launch and has no further comment.

The South Korean defence ministry said in a statement: ‘North Korea attempted to test an unidentified type of missile from Sinpo area in the South Hamkyong Province this morning, but we suspect the launch has failed.’

    This Kim fella dealing with these missiles like if they are toys he is playing with. He need to remember that there are countries with bigger and badder toys than his and they are not afraid to drop a couple on him. Some one need to talk some sense in his head. I don’t think he fully understand the world.

      This pepperpot will boil down to EAST vs West.

    Mack. Jennifer is correct. this is more than toys. NK is obviously being instigated into baiting Dumb Donald. Everyone knows he can be easily provoked. Both Kim and he are playing games. He plays The apprentice and Kim plays video war games. I think this will go beyond missiles. It will include technology to the intricate level of drone strikes carrying lethal gases. Go buy a mask, stock up on oxygen and get into an underground bunker because there are gases that burn like acid, and some that linger on for decades causing skin diseases and cancer while destroying bone tissues. Read man, Reading radiates light. It’s clear that Jenny does.

      I get it that you are not afraid of those gases or you got a bunker somewhere. There is a beautiful book with a collection of plays in it called CARLONG Caribbean Drama. The one play which stands out to me is one by a St Lucian guy entitled the drum maker. It is an excellent read if you can put the puzzle together. Teachers should know what I mean. This play is the epitome, of the situation in which this people sits.

    North Korean leather to me is a spoiled child. He wants attention. He must remember that Trump is not like the rest president that America has before.

      @Angus – we need to be careful with statements such as “a spoilt child”. Any one who is deemed as going against the grain will be labeled as such. This will be allies at work I am afraid and Kim has many allies. We should also keep an eye on that kuiper belt.

    The (Donald ) is picking up the pieces , the failure of (Obama’s ) red line allowing the terrorist to gather momentum in the middle east , the failure of the cowards ,the (NATO Alliance ) allowing (Putin ) to also gain momentum in (Ukraine) and (Syria) and (Iran ) to out fox (Obama) , also the testing programme in (North Korea) , the man the (Donald)..
    You all are minding others and saying rude things about the (President ) us in the region better be careful , who you all think is going to save our asses ………

      @jrsmith – we really need to have a sit down with some of that port and fire one together. Next time I am in London. A TEAM is a set of people who WORK TOGETHER. OUR people is out of the team by default. There is a saying that as one president takes over the US presidential office he is left a letter on his desk. No one knows what is in that letter…………………… Maybe Donald pieces were in that letter. When one looks at the atrocities world wide who is the real terrorist??????????? These guys play brilliant games. I bet the Chinese will save us over here seeing we are building such a strong alliance and all.

    Ego versus Ego or lunatic versus lunatic ? Hope not suicidal.

    Jennifer, I do not have a bunker nor am I a chosen one. I live by the principle that in the beginning we are born and in the end, we die. And what comes between those two points is called living. One thing for sure is when you die, you’re done. I enjoy my life as best as I can.

    • Jennifer April 16, 2017 at 6:42 pm

      You are more clever that I originally thought.

    I think that we are all missing the real big picture here. how will all this affect us in the Caribbean. Its like yuh neighbours fighting and both have guns and we are cheering them on, but we are not looking at the stray bullets, who will they hit, we must pray that all hot heads will cool before things happen, if it ever start, it gine be real hard to get it stop, trust me on that. Lets pray now.

    @, Jennifer , hail, hail, your (4.04) good shot, yes , yes , you are on , brandy and port it is , when you are in town… I would love that…….

    Instead of just looking to save our asses maybe it’s better to grow some backbone and feel uplifted. No one here has the gall to state that it is but America who doesn’t listen to international laws. It only points to them when it wants to blame others for it’s own violent transgressions.

    As a word to the wise.

    The Korean leader, take our Leader, I use the word lightly, to his natural logical conclusion.
    What do you have?
    Yes you got it in one.
    One of the same that is.

    Sleepy Stuart is in all ways the same, just a less developed dictator than the one we see in N.Korea operating in a total disregard, disconnect, arrogant distain, for the people he rules, as Stuart does.

    Do you feel that given the same circumstances, Stuart would not be acting identically.?

    Power corrupts.
    Absolute power corrupts, absolutely.

    Charity begins at home.
    We should, MUST, control the politicians we have here, before we cast our eyes and our brain power elsewhere.

    Political rule number 1.
    Divide and conquer.

    Politicians are HIGHLY PAID prostitute actors, in a predesigned POLITICAL Charade.
    Placed and instructed with the prime motive of affecting our thinking and there fore our reactions.

    Controlled and owned by the Worlds real money and therefore REAL POWER, none are anymore than hired Harlots,
    who sell them selves in exchange for a life of ease, and to be allowed to live off the bounty of the Plebian masses. YOU!!!

    Whilst we the Sheeples, continue on our bleeting path of Democracy, like Lemmings, all rushing to the direction of the PRECIPICE, convinced we are all doing the CORRECT thing, as DEMOCRACY, itself infers, that the will of the Mass is the correct decision .


    North Korea, is as nothing to you,
    whatever happens will happen, as with the rising and setting of the sun.


    IGNORE ,the distractions of the Prostitutional Charades.

    They are designed to distract you from, being EFFECTIVE, in the LIVING of what PETER says is just filling the space between living and dieing.

    FOCUS. DEAL with what you CAN AFFECT, and you will not just FILL a space between living and dieing.
    You will still fill it but WITH POSITIVE EFFECT and change for the better.
