But he’s got a button and can blow up his own cities.
Via Daily Caller:
North Korea appears to have accidentally sent a missile crashing down into a city during a test that went awry last April, a new open source intelligence report revealed Wednesday.
North Korea tested a new intermediate-range ballistic missile six times last year. The first three tests ended in failure, with one test sending a ballistic missile into a town not too far from the test site.
North Korea conducted its third test of the previously-unseen Hwasong-12 IRBM, an impressive weapon that served as a stepping stone in the development of a longer-range missile able to range the U.S. mainland, on April 28, 2017. The missile fell out of the sky over North Korean territory after its first-stage engines failed after about a minute of powered flight, The Diplomat reports, citing U.S. government sources with knowledge of the North’s weapons programs.
