Kim Jong Un Orders MYSTERIOUS Launch – What’s Happening?!
(DailyDig.com) – With tensions sky-high around the world due to the ongoing Russia/Ukraine fight, North Korea is putting itself into the mix. Just as talks of possible nuclear war circulate the globe, Kim Jong Un decided it would be a good time to test one of his country’s missiles. Is the dictator trying to tell the world something?

In what the Associated Press (AP) said was their 14th launch this year, North Korea tested a ballistic missile, which landed in the water off its east coast. A week prior to the launch, the North Korean leader promised to ramp up his country’s production of nuclear weapons. The launch also comes less than a week before Yoon Suk-yeol takes over as the President of South Korea.
The Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea (DPRK) has certainly turned up the heat. It already has 14 missiles tested in 2022 alone, when it only launched eight missiles total in 2021. One of the tests that took place more recently saw the country launch an intercontinental ballistic missile, capable of hitting the United States. With the threat of nuclear war already on the horizon, North Korea is causing even more concern with its testing, especially as Kim Jong-un says they could preemptively strike with nuclear weapons if the country feels a sufficient threat.
According to the AP, experts are claiming the Russia/Ukraine war has hindered Biden’s ability to correctly assess and address the situation in the DPRK. Pyongyang says it’s not open to talks until the US drops its hostile policies. Is North Korea trying to make a point? If so, what’s the point?
