North Korea threatens Biden, then launches two more ballistic missiles for the third time this month
North Korea today launched two more missiles for the third time this month and is threatening Biden with a response because of sanctions. Biden is silent.
American Military News reported:
North Korea tested two more ballistic missiles for the third time this month on Friday, just hours after threatening the United States with a “stronger and safer reaction” to sanctions.
The US Indo-Pacific Command confirmed the North Korean launch in a statement on Friday, saying: “We are aware of the ballistic missile launch and are consulting closely with our allies and partners. While we have assessed that this event does not pose an immediate threat to US personnel or territory, or to our allies, the missile launch highlights the destabilizing impact of the DPRK’s illicit weapons program. The United States’ commitment to the defense of the Republic of Korea and Japan remains strong.”

The launch came just hours after a spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry expressed anger at the sanctions implemented by the United States this week. On Wednesday, the US State Department sanctioned eight individuals and entities linked to North Korea’s weapons programs. The United States also suggested that the UN Security Council impose new sanctions on North Korea.
Cheong Seong-Change of South Korea’s Sejong Institute said Friday’s releases reflected North Korea’s irritation with US sanctions.
The Biden Administration has not responded to these actions by the North Koreans. It’s as if Biden doesn’t know what to do or is too afraid to do it. Biden has been silent on the actions of China, Russia, North Korea and Iran in recent weeks.
Just a few days ago, on the 11th (Tuesday), US air travel came to a halt due to a North Korean launch at the time. According to the far-left CNN:
The official says it was not a national ground stop and may have been issued by a regional air traffic control facility.
“NORAD headquarters did not issue any warnings” regarding a potential threat to the US, according to Capt. Pamela Kunze, NORAD’s chief spokeswoman.
The Federal Aviation Administration, responsible for the nation’s air traffic control system, said the ground stop was to err on the side of safety.
“As a matter of precaution, the FAA temporarily halted departures at some airports along the West Coast on Monday night,” the FAA said in a statement. “Full operations resumed in less than 15 minutes. The FAA regularly takes precautionary measures. We are reviewing the process around this ground stop as we do after all those events.”
