North Korea attempts but fails to launch missile: South Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is not dumb, despite his often freaky behavior.

The source said: 'News of cadres of the second army corps slandering Kim Jong-un reached all the way to the People's Army's General Political Bureau, and the arrested cadres are to be severely punished'.

North Korea has paraded its range of missiles in a massive military display in central Pyongyang, with ruler Kim Jong-un looking on with delight as his nation flaunted its military hardware amid rising tensions across the region.

The United States, South Korea and other countries have vowed to apply more pressure on the North, but so far nothing has worked to stop Pyongyang's nuclear program.

"We're prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war and we are ready to hit back with nuclear attacks of our own style against any nuclear attacks", Choe said. The move triggered questions about Trump's plans for North Korea, which has conducted several missile and nuclear tests.

The parade comes as tensions have been simmering between North Korea and the United States in recent weeks, raising fears of a potential military confrontation between the two sides.

Kim Dong-yub, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Institute for Far Eastern Studies, said the canisters and trucks suggested that the North was developing technology to "cold launch" ICBMs, ejecting them from the canisters before they ignite.

United States nuclear warning system DefCon has been upgraded the threat to world safety to level four in the face of the stand off. "So that's why. It's not the [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] but the USA and Trump that makes trouble", Han told the Associated Press, via the Post.


American intelligence officials have reportedly said the U.S. is ready to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea if it is sure Pyongyang is about to stage another nuclear weapons test. Outside analysts consider Choe to be North Korea's number two official.

All eyes are on the Trump administration's plans for North Korea, with concern growing since last week's USA missile strike in Syria, in response to a deadly gas attack.

"North Korea is a problem", President Donald Trump told reporters Thursday.

The festivities took place amid concerns that North Korea may be preparing for its sixth nuclear test or a major rocket launch, such as its first flight test of an ICBM.

The North regularly launches short-range missiles, but is also developing mid-range and long-range missiles meant to target US troops in Asia and, eventually, the USA mainland.

The North also past year launched a long-range rocket that put a satellite into orbit, which Washington, Seoul and others saw as a banned test of missile technology.

Always high animosity has risen on the Korean Peninsula in recent months, as the United States and South Korea conduct annual war games that North Korea claims are invasion preparation and the North prepared for Saturday's anniversary celebrations.
