The latest missiles were fired from a base near Wonsan into the Sea of Japan, South Korea's defence ministry said.

Edited at 8:28 pm with new quote and source.

The new source link is suggesting a long-range missile test could be days away.

Eek. Did I do something wrong? Is it not an acceptable source (I can assume it's not in general, but from BNO News?)

Sorry. I'm still moderately new at posting threads!

No you did nothing wrong. Thanks for posting!

It's just that twitter sucks in a propoganda type of way.

Even the twitter stated Yonhap, which is South Korea's main news source.

If it was just a twitter with no source, I would hold off until confirmed as there is a lot of bunk on there.

But not in this case.

I think it could be reliable. Just that I'm afraid I see where this is going. The twitter again. Theres gonna be no news, just that crappy website. Not a good situation if you know what I mean.

It usually takes 15-20 minutes before hitting MSM.

I have noticed that BBC and SKY news usually have it up first. (on the news sites I frequent anyway's)

Your source article says North Korea fired two missiles off its East Coast.

Do you know what at?

The ocean I would guess.


It is breaking on BBC now.

Here's an article that mentions it.

itn.co.uk...

Edit to add: I am not sure of the time stamp of this happening. UK time? North Korean time?

Unfortunately no. It's "breaking" so ias far as I can tell no details are filled in yet

It's 10:30 am in NK, and the missiles were fired at 8AM, so I'm assuming since it's breaking news that it's on NK time, so it happened 2.5 hrs ago.

Thoughts on this? I personally don't think we'll get anything big tomorrow, but what is Kim up to? All talk and no walk, or something more sinister?

Well it is July 4th in North Korea right now.

It wouldn't surprise me at all to see a few more go off today although I don't think they will launch a "big" one.

That's what I'm wondering. The MSM and talks about ATS were hyping up something for the 4th because it's our holiday, so I dunno if this was his example of a "show" or if more will come tomorrow (night time for them?), on our actual 4th.

Nothing big, I don't think, but I'm torn between wondering if it's leading to something more, or if he's just showing off. The MSM isn't touching NKorea hardly at all, and if I've learned anything from this site, the "big" things are often intentionally flown under the MSMs radar.

edit: my fingers are broken today
