American politics and economics depend on warfare. War is necessary for the United States in terms of ideology, politics and economics. That is why the US military-industrial complex is one of the most influential forces in the state.
Lavrov said that the risk of military conflict between the U.S. and North Korea are quite high. It is also worth noting that, according to information released today the new White House administration there is a discreet channel of communication with North Korean leadership, but that did not help current relationships between the United States and the DPRK.
Reports say that North Korea again launched its missile on a very highly lofted trajectory, which allowed the missile to fall in the Sea of Japan rather than overflying Japan. It appears the ground range of the test was around 1,000 km (600 miles), which put it in or close to Japanese territorial waters. Reports also say the maximum altitude of the launch was 3,700 km (2,300 miles) with a flight time of about 47 minutes.
The USA, because of the launch of a rocket hypothetically able to hit targets in Alaska, wanted to push through the UN Security Council a statement condemning North Korea for “aggressive challenge to the world community”, which was supposed to open the way to discussion on the practice of a new package of sanctions against the DPRK and most importantly, to create the ground for pressure on China, which the US demanded to have a stronger economic pressure on North Korea, that Kim ceased to launch rockets without any preconditions.
The DPRK has successfully tested a new version of its Intercontinental ballistic missiles Hwaong-14.
The rocket has successfully overcome a height of 2 000 km and flew a total of 930 kilometers in the direction of Japan.
Pyongyang has traditionally stated that it will continue to develop its missile and nuclear program to put an end to American threats of nuclear war.
Grinning broadly, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un delighted in the global furor created by his nation’s first launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, vowing Wednesday to never abandon nuclear weapons and to keep sending Washington more “gift packages” of missile and atomic tests.

Monday’s launch followed two successful tests of medium-to-long-range missiles in as many weeks by the North, which has been conducting such tests at an unprecedented pace in an effort to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting the mainland United States.
The North’s official Korean Central News Agency said leader Kim Jong Un had observed the Pukguksong-2 missile test Sunday, which had verified the reliability and accuracy of the solid-fuel engine’s operations, stage separation and late-stage nuclear warhead guidance.
North Korea has finally tested (successfully) a new missile — and boy it is a doozy. After the April 15 parade, we called this missile the KN-08 Mod Odd and the KN-08 +/-. But North Korea calls it the Hwasong-12 and it contains a surprise: the brand-new “indigenous” engine that North Korea debuted in March.
Launch of a ballistic missile Hwasong-12, which took place yesterday in the DPRK. The missile is capable not only of hitting U.S. bases and other targets in South Korea and Japan, but with a margin to fly to US base on GUAM.
Ultimately, the transition from liquid to solid propellant missiles will bring about a fundamental paradigm shift in North Korean missile systems (Figure 8). A road-mobile ICBM, tentatively named the Pukguksong-3, employing solid propellant rocket motors could easily achieve the range performance required to hit the US mainland in the future, making it a serious potential threat to the United States.
North Korea, despite a stream of threats against it, again went to the principle and made a new launch of a ballistic missile medium-range KN-1.
According to the Pentagon, the rocket after you start having some problems and she soon fell into North Korean territory.
NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong-un is ready to send up to 500,000 women soldiers to the front line if war with the US breaks out, according to defectors’ estimates.
The DPRK Artillery celebrated 85 years since the establishment of the Korean people’s Army.
It began with snarky Wonks ironically tweeting about North Korea, and then suddenly it became a terrifying nightmare for capitalist rat-pigs.
“We’ll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis,” the BBC quoted Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol as saying in an interview.
“If the U.S. is reckless enough to use military means it would mean from that very day, an all out war.”
Is Commander-in-Chief Trump, who somehow managed to avoid military service during the Vietnam War, really ready to launch a big war in Asia? Most Americans still can’t locate Korea on a map. Will Congress tax every American taxpayer $20,000 to pay for a new Korean war? Will Russia sit by quietly while the US blows apart North Korea? Does anyone in the White House know that North Korea borders on Russia and is less than 200km from the key Russian port of Vladivostok?
Despite the fact that the alleged missile tests were unsuccessful, and the US pretended that they didn’t happen, the tension around North Korea continues unabated, the crisis continues to evolve in the medium-intensive mode.
Specifically, during the annual Day of the Sun military parade, North Korea showed off new solid-fuel rocket technology for its medium- and longer-range missiles, which if Pyongyang can perfect, would significantly shorten its rockets’ launch time. This would make the North Korean military more capable of fighting a nuclear war, while sharply increasing the risk of a conflict.
