Whenever one of our adversaries conducts one of these types of tests, our media almost invariably portrays it as a provocation. Of course, (I'm
thinking N. Korea here) usually their tests are accompanied by threatening rhetoric.
One can downplay the test as normal preparedness - but all factors such as timing, test location, and trajectory are carefully calculated and are
meant to send a message. Testing is necessary, practice is prudent, improvement is imperative. Just don't forget to take into account everything else
that's being played-out on the global stage at the moment.
So China... You have a problem with us sailing too close to your "island"?
How about we just send a little ICBM 'thinking of you' greeting card your way?
I can only imagine what their media, along with N. Korea's media has to say about this. Maybe someone can do some digging and give us a peek.
