As North Korea Fires Missile, The Only Question Worth Asking Is…

Well, Kim fired another missile.

Speculation has been building for days, and at this point, we’re all becoming kind of numb to it.

But nevertheless, here are the headlines:

  • North Korea Seen to Have Fired Missile, Japan Says
  • S. KOREA HOLDS EMERGENCY MEETING ON N. KOREA MISSILE: YONHAP
  • NORTH KOREA’S MISSILE MAY HAVE LANDED IN JAPAN’S EEZ: NHK
  • U.S. HAS DETECTED NORTH KOREA BALLISTIC MISSILE LAUNCH: DAVIS

Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis says they’re still trying to determine if this was (another) ICBM.

He’ll “have more information for you soon.”

Trump has been informed, apparently, which means he’s probably mulling whether this is a good time to boost his poll numbers by wiping Pyongyang off the face of the map.

So far, markets aren’t reacting.

Or actually, maybe that’s not entirely true. Here’s something amusing that hit with the headline:

Do Dip Buyers Like North Korea Missile Headlines?

A little jitter in markets there as a headline appears that North Korea appears to have fired a missile. No follow up yet (as to where it has gone), and it appears that someone’s used to opportunity to JBTD.

Dip

As you can see, the only question worth asking is this: “Do Dip Buyers Like North Korea Missile Headlines?

  1. 1000 more km straight up. Bye, bye Chicago. Really, they cut the engines on the last launch because they were afraid to drift too close to Japan. Probably more concerned at to the fate of the re-entry vehicle.

  2. It seems the game is afoot. Kim and Trump, are these two really holding the fate of much of the planet in their “little” hands, lordy, I hope not. This is more than serious with two count them two infantile brains ready to do the “wrong” thing at any moment. We really need some “republican intervention” here, are we going to get it? There is a sliver of hope because Mr, McCain finally has stepped up, so maybe his pals in the senate will do the same. Come on guys can you stop worrying about your billionaire friends for just a little while and do the “right” thing (no pun intended).
