North Korea Threatens Japan with Missiles and Calls PM “Most Stupid” Man in the History of the World
After another ballistic missile test this week, North Korea has gotten into a war of words and threats with their island neighbor, Japan. On Saturday, the North Korean government said that Japan would soon be facing “real ballistic missiles” and the their Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is “most stupid man ever known in history”.
Following a missile test from the rouge state, 2 missiles came down in the Sea of Japan. Prime Minister Abe declared them to be ballistic missiles which would be in violation of a UN resolution. In response to these allegations a North Korean minister went on state TV and said, “It can be said that Abe is the only one idiot in the world and the most stupid man ever known in history as he fails to distinguish a missile from multiple launch rocket system while seeing the photo-accompanied report.” The North Korean’s also continued to call Abe a “political dwarf” and a “disgrace”.
The North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un personally supervised this missile test which he says they need to conduct to defend against a possible attack from the U.S. However, his government is currently under multiple sets of international sanctions in regard to its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs.

U.S. and North Korean talks have been at a standstill recently and North Korea has issued a warning that the U.S. must changes its approach to the negotiators by the end of the year. As the deadline approaches, North Korea has been increasingly more hostile in its language and testing.
