North Korea recently crashed a missile into its own town outside of Pyongyang, possibly causing an explosion and casualties while testing weapons for their nuclear program, U.S. government sources claimed.
One United States Diplomat reported on Wednesday that a Hwasong-12 Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) was launched in April 2017 near Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province, before crashing into the city of Tokchun after traveling around 24 miles from a minute in flight.
The crash reportedly caused “considerable damage to a complex of industrial or agricultural buildings.” However, the exact extent of the damage and casualties caused related to this accident remain unknown due to the nature of North Korea’s censorship of information.
Google Earth images show “ground disturbances in an area that previously contained a building with fencing,” and also “portion of the seasonal greenhouse had been damaged near the side of the complex where the debris fell.”
“The United States can never fight a war against me and our state,” KJU warned. “It should properly know that the whole territory of the U.S. is within the range of our nuclear strike and a nuclear button is always on the desk of my office, and this is just a reality, not a threat.
I am not sure whether or not I believe KJU. It certainly is in his best interest to bluff and keep President Trump on his heels as much as possible out of fear that KJU could return fire if we did fire anything his way.
