>> North Korea firing yet another missile from its capital Pyongyang early Friday morning local time. Again flying it over Japan. The launch coming just a day after North Korea threatened to sink Japan and reduce the United States to quote, ashes and darkness, for supporting a UN Security Council resolution imposing new sanctions against it for its nuclear test in early September.
Japanese television NHK reporting that the latest missile landed roughly 1,000 miles east of Japan's Hokkaido Island. South Korean military says its full flight went more than 2,000 miles. The North previously launched a ballistic missile on August 29th, which flew over Hokkaido and landed in the Pacific waters. As for the September 3rd nuclear test, a senior US general on Thursday saying that given the size of the blast, he now has to assume that it was a hydrogen bomb, which is much more destructive than a simple traditional fission atomic bomb.
The senior general saying North Korea still has not demonstrated it has a missile that could deliver a nuclear warhead, although it was only a matter of when, not if.
