Yeah, he is sending quite the message to the world. He basically just spit in the eye of us, Japan, and South Korea and told China to mid your own business. It's a scary time and the fact this missile was as capable as it was makes it even scarier.

Well, it appears they are at it again. There is going to come a time they miscalculate and a lot of people will die because of it.
I don't know about that. Iran has been testing more and ore capable ballistic missiles and no one has bombed them. Pakistan tests missiles on occasion and they aren't being bombed. I think they would only bombed the next day if they used the missile to harm others.
A very scary time over in the East Asian peninsula. I can only see this ending in war sadly. It almost feels like Iraq all over, but without the increased importance of oil being involved. I don't understand why China & Russia seem happy to sit back and watch this all play out, surely they can see that they are witnessing a mad man at work and it is only going to result in innocent deaths at some point. "Let the snake roam free in your backyard and one day you are going to get bit."
Scary times indeed… as if we didn't have enough to worry about with a new cold war on the horizon and all the ISIS terror attacks in Europe and the atrocities going on in the Middle East. Just feels like things are bubbling up under the surface waiting to explode!
