South Korea's military says North Korea has fired at least one unidentified ballistic missile toward its eastern sea.

On Wednesday, 38North, a North Korea-focused website, said its analysis of commercial satellite imagery shows multiple barges and other vessels gathered at the eastern port of Sinpo, where North Korea has a major shipyard building submarines. The report said the North was possibly preparing to launch a new submarine capable of firing ballistic missiles.

North Korea has been pushing hard to acquire an ability to fire nuclear-armed missiles from submarines, which it sees as a key piece in building a nuclear arsenal that can viably threaten its neighbors and eventually the American homeland. Such weapons in theory would bolster North Korea’s deterrent by ensuring retaliation after absorbing a nuclear attack on land. Ballistic missile submarines would also add a new maritime threat to the North’s growing collection of solid-fuel weapons fired from land vehicles, which are being developed with an apparent aim to overwhelm missile defense systems in South Korea and Japan.

South Korea’s military in March detected the North flight-testing a ballistic missile from a submarine in March that flew 600 kilometers before landing in waters between the Korean Peninsula and Japan. The March launch was North Korea’s first testing of a submarine-launched ballistic missile system since October of last year, when it fired a new short-range missile from the 8.24 Yongung – its only known submarine capable of launching a missile. The October underwater launch was the North’s first in two years.

What seems to get lost

Man. North Korea sure does hate that sea.

Has anyone told Emperor Tater Tot that Godzilla isn't real? And if he was he wouldn't be in the sea that close to Korea?

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missile North Korea launched from the western inland town of Taechon flew cross-country before landing off the eastern coast. The South’s military didn’t immediately release further specifics about the weapon.

The rocket man is in action again smh.

So much for that American aircraft carrier in the region stoping North Korea from making bold moves.

Ffs guys. Can we just have a couple seconds to breathe between global disasters.

At least they're not embarrassing themselves by saying what they are actually aiming for anymore. 'Umm, yea, this time we were actually just trying to hit the sea.'
