North Korea’s Missile Launch Failed

North Korea’s missile launch today was a dud! K.T. McFarland, Deputy National Security Adviser, was asked if the US cyber-sabotaged the missile launch. He refused to answer “yes” or “no” but simply said it was “a fizzle.” He said, “You know we can’t talk about secret intelligence and things that might have been done, covert operations. I really have no comment.” He also said that the missile test was one of about 30 failed attempts by North Korea and that cyber war is now a big part of the geo-political landscape.

Missile Failed Shortly After Launch

The missile test failed just seconds after launching. This was somewhat of an embarrassment to Kim Jong-un as the launch occurred just a day after the regime showed off a wide collection of new missiles and launchers during the large-scale military parade on its most important holiday.

US intelligence officials, as well as South Korean officials are trying to determine the type of missile used in the launch. Initial reports said it might be a medium-range missile, according to a White House foreign policy adviser.

North Korea’s launching comes at a time when tensions have built between the isolated country and the US. As a result the US Navy dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group to the region last weekend. President Donald Trump said this week that if China cannot step-in with the North Korean nuclear program then the US will.
