EPIC FAIL: Wait till you see North Korea’s sad missile test

This was the last thing the pudgy leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, needed:

North Korea has attempted to fire a missile it introduced just hours ago at a military parade – but the launch was an embarrassing failure after the weapon blew up almost immediately.

It is thought to be one of the country’s new ‘game-changer’ intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) which was revealed to the world in a display of military might yesterday.

The South Korean defence ministry said it had detected a failed launch from Sinpo – where North Korea’s biggest submarine base is located.

According to a military official the weapon is ‘presumed to be a new ICBM’ as it is longer than the existing KN-08 or KN-14 missiles.

If a war breaks out between North Korea and the US, I think it’s a valid question to ask how many of their weapons will actually work. The country’s weaponry is aging, outdated and poorly maintained, and I would suspect morale among their troops is extremely bad as well. That doesn’t mean a decision to go to war should be taken lightly, but North Korea is in pretty poor shape.
