North Korea Launches Another Missle, Tensions With U.S. Increases

On Sunday, May 14, North Korea test-fired another ballistic missile after warnings of “catastrophic consequences” from the US government increasing tensions between both countries.

The test which was the first since South Korea elected a new president, follows a ballistic missile test launch which many U.S and South Korean officials say failed. While reports are unclear as to what type of missile North Korea tested, this incident adds to the already heightened tensions between the U.S and North Korea.

Following the previous rocket launch which failed Trump tweeted “North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & it’s highly respected President when it launched, though, unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!” While Trump hasn’t yet mentioned anything about the new ballistic test, he has as recently as April stated that a “major, major conflict” with North Korea was possible.
