South Korean military officials assessed North Korea fired missiles from both the ground and from airborne fighter jets, Fox News reported.

 

The launches likely come as a show of force on the eve of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung’s 108th birthday, as well as a distraction ahead of South Korea’s upcoming parliamentary elections.

While the world is focused on the COVID-19 virus, especially the United States and the politicians currently lashing out at each other on who has the right to open for business, North Korea just broke every agreement made with the United States by launching a cruise missile with the capability of hitting U.S. soil.

 

Fox News reported:

North’s first cruise missile launch since June 2017, per the defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

 



Later on Tuesday, North Korea launched fighter jets which fired an unspecified number of air-to-surface missiles towards the same waters, the official added. Military drills had previously been scaled back in the North due to the coronavirus outbreak.

 

A test of a missile capable of reaching the U.S. homeland would end North Korea’s self-imposed moratorium on major weapons tests and likely completely derail nuclear diplomacy with the United States.

 

At some point the President will now have to deal with rocket boy again and his blatant violations.
