North Korea test fires more missiles on 4th of July

July 4, 2009

(ChattahBox) — In the fifth set of tests since April, North Korea has fired another series of missiles, in an apparent act of defiance timed for America’s Independence Day. It’s getting to be a tradition for North Korea, who also did a nuclear test in May, which coincided with the US Memorial Day holiday. Japan had previously predicted that North Korea might fire a long range missile toward Hawaii on July 4th, but those missiles fired today, were only of medium range, with a reported limit of about 500km (312 miles).

North Korea is banned from all ballistic missile-related activities under UN sanctions imposed after the second underground nuclear test in May. Japan’s Foreign Ministry has condemned the latest missile launches as a serious act of provocation against the security of neighboring countries. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missiles were fired from one of the North’s east coast launch sites on Saturday morning. All landed in the Sea of Japan, known in South Korea as the East Sea.

In related news South Korean reported Saturday that the North Korean cargo ship Kang Nam 1 that was believed to be on its way to Burma, but changed course after being tracked by U.S. vessels, appears to be carrying conventional small weapons, including Soviet-era rifles and missile launchers.  Anyway Kim Jong-Il, thanks for the 4th of July fireworks, now go crawl back into your bunker and die please!
