A sworn enemy of the United States, North Korea, tests a missile that lands in the Sea of Japan.
But, it seems that the official position of the United States of America is that the test may have displeased Putin.
Let me repeat - THE OFFICIAL POSITION OF THE UNITED STATES ABOUT A NORTH KOREAN MISSILE TEST IS THIS: '"With the missile impacting so close to Russian soil –- in fact, closer to Russia than to Japan –- the President cannot imagine that Russia is pleased."'
It appears that the most important thing about our enemy action is that it might have 'displeased' our enemy Putin.
Russia under Putin is our enemy; Putin is a murdering thug who will use any means to advance his financial status and embarrass the United States.
A better response is this: 'Watch your back asshole. We will protect our friends, not you'
' A U.S. official said the missile landed in the Sea of Japan after being launched from western North Korea. The type of missile launched today is still being assessed.
According to U.S. Pacific Command, the missile was launched near Kusung and landed in the Sea of Japan.
The type of missile is being assessed, but the flight was not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile, according to a statement from U.S. PACOM spokesman Major Rob Shuford.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America, the statement said.
A statement released late Saturday night by the White House said President Trump was "briefed on the latest missile test by North Korea."
It continued, "North Korea has been a flagrant menace for far too long. South Korea and Japan have been watching this situation closely with us. The United States maintains our ironclad commitment to stand with our allies in the face of the serious threat posed by North Korea. Let this latest provocation serve as a call for all nations to implement far stronger sanctions against North Korea."
The statement also acknowledged the missile test's close proximity to Russia: "With the missile impacting so close to Russian soil –- in fact, closer to Russia than to Japan –- the President cannot imagine that Russia is pleased."
