North Korea Test Fires ‘Revolutionary’ Rocket Engine That Can Propel ICBMs

Written by  Robert Gehl

North Korea has upped the ante in their saber-rattling of the free world.

The Associated Press is reporting that the totalitarian regime has just conducted a test of a new type of high-thrust rocket engine that is supposed to be a “revolutionary breakthrough” in their space program.

Hereditary dictator Kim Jong Un attended a test Saturday at the Sohae launch site, state media reports. They said the test was intended to confirm the “new type” of engine’s thrust power and determine the reliability of it’s control system and stability.

The Korean Central News Agency reports that Kim called the test “a great event of historic significance.”

He also said the “whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries” and claimed the test marks what will be known as the “March 18 revolution” in the development of the country’s rocket industry.

The engine is supposedly to be used for North Korea’s space and satellite-launching program.

All this is happening while the country is officially banned by the United Nations from conducting any long-range missile tests. It claims, however, it’s satellite program is strictly for “peaceful use,” but few believe that.

North Korean officials have said that under a five-year plan, they intend to launch more Earth observation satellites and what would be the country’s first geostationary communications satellite – which would be a major technological advance.

"you complete brainwashed assholes of that paranoid egotistical narcissist delusional pathetic asshole obama", There, George boy, I fixed it. I believe you made a typo. God! you have no idea how refreshing it is to see all of you liberal snow flakes like you go ape shit over yourselves. The president of The United States, Donald J. Trump is doing just great, God bless him! Now, sit down and get your lolly pop before you hurt yourself. lol!!!

Yup just another one of Obama's pussy snowflake kiss ass punks. You haven't a clue what Obama did to this country and what another Democrat would have done. Crawl back to your friggin safe place and sit back and watch how real men work.

We Kno how to do a decapitation attack to eliminate the NK leadership. May day we nuke Pyongyang during the height of there May day parade. The city would be leveled including most of the leadership including Kim. This would have to be followed with taking out there nuke and launch facilities that same day. This would cripple NK and lead to instability which the Chinese would have to step in to the void. This might create more problems than doing nothing though as we would be in direct confrontation with both China and Russia at that point.

Lets hope it goes astray and flies up that fat commie psychopath's ass. You would think there would be one braveheart that would slit his throat or shoot him in the head ? McAuthor was right..we should have nuked the Chinese and captured North Korea. Presidents and Congress....once they say we need to wage war need to shut up and let the military win without P.C. rules of engagement. Same goes for the one I was in..Vietnam..!

I firmly believe our country closely monitors North Korea (and I am sure we do) We also build our defenses to the point that no one will mess with us (What Regan said years ago)

However the one most important thing we should do is pray: Ask our Lord Jesus Christ to protect our great Republic and He will, however there are things we must do and that is we all must come individually to Christ to receive His wonderful blessings. Ignore this message if you wish, but ask yourself as to our country: have we grown or gone down hill over the past 50years? At my age of 84 we are losing the battle if we don't get back to prayer. Also thank the Lord for President Trump. Art LeBeau, Villa Ridge, MO (Christian & Conservative)

The country with the best cyber technology is likely to win the war today. If we know where Kim is, we can take him out. Remember, though, that North Koreans are related to the Koreans living below the 38th Parallel. More than anything, they would like the countries to be reunified. With Kim gone, a negotiated settlement might be possible. Where is China in this? North Korea is a buffer that protects their southern border. What China does not want is a bunch of fleeing North Koreans pouring across the border. A settlement with the Americans gone would be right up China's alley.

The only North Koreans headed to China would be those now in power. The rest would be looking for their relatives.

Nuke the bastards before they nuke South Korea, Japan, Hawaii, the west coast....... oh well, the first three locations are worrisome.
