Crisis Averted: Look What Happened With North Korea Over The Weekend

According to specialists and satellite imagery at Punggye-ri in North Korea, it showed the country’s nuclear site was “primed and ready” for its a sixth nuclear test this weekend. It was preparing to detonate a nuclear bomb to go along with its national “Day of the Sun” on Saturday. The country’s current ruler, Kim Jong Un, has hinted that he had something big planned for the day.

On Saturday, the regime said they had new missiles that could reach the United States and warned that it was ready to “hit back with nuclear attacks of our own.” When Pyongyang tried to show off it’s potential by firing up a medium-range missile on Sunday which completely failed as it exploded mere seconds after it launched. It was also a reminder of how bluster from North Korea should always be taken with a grain of salt.

The White House foreign policy adviser who was traveling with Vice President Mike Pence to the region said, Washington had good intelligence before and after the launch. “It's a failed test. It follows another failed test,” the adviser said. “So really no need to reinforce their failure. We don't need to expend any resources against that.” Of the five missile tests that North Korea has carried out this year, three were considered failures.

In North Korea, the news has been really quiet about the failed test and even government workers claimed not to know what had happened.
