On Saturday, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency reported that the North Korean government had conducted a ground test of a new rocket engine intended to power the first stage of an intercontinental ballistic missile. The test, which took place at Sohae Space Center in North Phyongan Province near the Chinese border, was hailed as a success.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un boasted that the engine would make it possible to launch nuclear strikes against the US. “Now the DPRK can tip new type inter-continental ballistic rockets with more powerful nuclear warheads and keep any cesspool of evils in the earth including the US mainland within our striking range and reduce them to ashes,” Kim was quoted as saying, according to North Korea watchdog site NK News.

  1. Dear Kim –

    Remember – “ashes” is a two-way street, and it will be a lot easier for us to turn your tiny country into rubble than it will for you to do any widespread damage to ours.
