North Korea Seen Moving ICBM Into Position For Launch

Well, here we go.

In what would appear to be confirmation of something Seoul suggested less than 24 hours ago, North Korea is said to preparing for another ICBM launch.

Here’s the headline:


“North Korea started moving an ICBM-class missile produced from Pyongyang research center on Monday after the nuclear test on Sunday,” Asia Business Daily reports, citing an unidentified official.

According to the report, Kim is “moving the projectile slowly during the nighttime” on a mobile launcher in order to avoid being detected by South Korean and U.S. intel – so that’s amusing, in a morbid kind of way.

There’s now a “good chance” they’ll fire something before September 9 (national founding day), and the Daily also says it will likely be “unexpected” and could be coordinated with simultaneously launched missiles from other sites.

I guess that means Kim’s long VIX.

And USDJPY reacted immediately, hitting a day low before bouncing a bit…


Finally, as if on cue:

Stay tuned.

    • Like the time that Trump authorized the use of tens of millions of dollars worth of cruise missiles at an airfield and it was up and running the next day? We couldn’t even reliably hit aircraft that were sitting still.

      What makes you think that launching missiles at Kim Jong Un, and getting a million South Koreans killed by artillery is a good idea?
