(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Joe Biden’s slogan has been “Build Back Better,” except the only thing Biden and his regime have done since being in office is destroy and break down and that includes international relations.
The world in general is a much less safe place since Biden usurped the White House. The Taliban has taken over Afghanistan and there’s a full-blown war going on between Russia and Ukraine.
Now, reports indicate that North Korea is getting in the game.
After Joe Biden told South Korean leaders that he was going to be stepping up deterrence against North Korea, North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile with a potential range that would cover much of the US, according to The New York Times.
The ICBM tested was not the only one. North Korea also tested two other missiles but those are not believed to involve ICBMs, CNN reported. One was a missile that reportedly disintegrated after reaching a height of 12 inches and the other was a short-range ballistic missile that flew about 472 miles and climbed to an altitude of 37 miles, according to CNN.
The ICBM went 223 miles and reached up to 335 miles in altitude.
In response, both the US and South Korea launched their own missile tests showing North Korea their willingness to respond to any aggression with force.
South Korea’s deputy national security adviser, Kim Tae-hyo, reported that the missile being tested was the Hwasong-17 missile that has a potential range of the entire US mainland.
He noted the test appeared to be focused on the missile’s propellant and stage separations.
The test comes as the Pyongyang government builds up its nuclear missile capabilities.
“North Korea continues to improve, expand and diversify its conventional and nuclear missile capabilities, posing an increasing risk to the U.S. homeland and U.S. forces, allies, and partners in the region,” John Plumb, the U.S. assistant secretary of defense for space policy, said in an appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week.
“Most of North Korea’s ballistic missiles have an assessed capability to carry nuclear payloads,” he said.
According to Chang Young-keun, a missile expert at Korea Aerospace University in South Korea, the missile tests weren’t just a military exercise on North Korea’s part but a “political message” and the message is “they feel bad” about Biden’s recent summit with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, as reported by ABC.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has stepped-up his missile testing throughout this year which indicates to assistant professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Sung-Yoon Lee, that “The US will find it impossible to turn its back on Kim. Hence, NK will negotiate from a position of strength,” according to Tokyo-based news magazine Nikkei Asia.
While President Trump made history with his meeting and diplomatic efforts with Kim Jung Un, Biden has yet to meet with North Korea.
A Biden regime official told CNN that this has “not been for lack of trying” which would then make the missile launches a slap in the face to the Biden regime.
Naturally, Biden said on Sunday that he was “not concerned” about the weapons tests that had been cited as a possibility.
“We are prepared for anything North Korea does. We’ve thought through how we would respond to whatever they do,” he said, according to The Washington Post.
Meanwhile, American military and intelligence agencies believe North Korea could be planning for its first underground nuclear weapons test in five years. South Korea has said they believe the North is testing a nuclear weapons detonation device, a probable first step in a nuclear test.
Surely you feel totally safe with Biden at the helm. What could possibly go wrong?
