Four North Korean missiles have failed in the past month. Five have failed in the past 2 months.
This is not a good year to be a North Korean engineer. (Although, technically, no year is a good year to be a North Korean engineer….)
In the past 24 hours, not one, but two North Korean intermediate-range ballistic missiles exploded shortly after launch, a U.S. official briefed on the latest intelligence in the region told Fox News on Thursday. The first Musudan missile exploded at approximately 5:00 p.m. ET Wednesday. The second exploded early Thursday morning at 6:30 am ET, according to the official.
This is the third time North Korea’s new Musudan missile, which has never been successfully tested, has failed to launch. On North Korea’s “Founder’s Day” on April 15, the first test of a Musudan missile with a range of 2,500 miles failed spectacularly in an embarrassing setback for the communist regime. North Korea now has had four missile launches fail in the past month.
Without a doubt, the North Korean state-run propaganda machine reported all tests were massive successes.
