The world is simply unraveling before our very eyes.
North Korea has just launched two ballistic missiles into international waters according to a military report from the Japanese Coast Guards
The missiles were launched at the command of Dictator Kim Jong Un and were sent to the East Coast of the Korean Peninsula.
In response South Korea also launched missiles from their new 3,7000 ton submarine and was able to hit their targets successfully.
The ongoing tension between both North and South Korea could change the world within minutes if conflict was to ensue.
A recent report concluded that North Korea could send out over 10,000 missiles towards the capital of South Korea in minutes which would results to over 300,000 people dying.
Those numbers are without North Korea even using their Nuclear weapons which could bring the death toll to millions.
North Korea fired two missiles off its east coast Wednesday, South Korean and Japanese officials said.
If confirmed, it would be the first such test since March and a violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions. https://t.co/SIOqBasDmg

Fox News covered the story, check out what they reported:
North Korea reportedly fired two ballistic missiles into waters off its east coast Wednesday, in the direction of Japan, prompting Japan’s prime minister to denounce the action as “absolutely outrageous,” according to reports.
The latest missile firings by North Korea came several days after it reportedly tested newly developed long-range missiles over the weekend, reports said.
“The firings threaten the peace and safety of Japan and the region and are absolutely outrageous,” Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said, according to The Associated Press. “The government of Japan is determined to further step up our vigilance and surveillance to be prepared for any contingencies.”
Hours after the North Korean launch, South Korea fired a missile of its own from a submarine in an event that had been scheduled in advance, Yonhap reported.
The U.S. military’s Indo-Pacific Command also confirmed Wednesday’s test in a statement, pledging commitment to America’s allies in the region:

NBC News didn’t stay silent either:
North Korea fired two ballistic missiles off its east coast Wednesday and South Korea said hours later that it had carried out a successful test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile.
The rival launches intensified an arms race between the two countries amid stalled nuclear diplomacy with the United States and just two days after Pyongyang said it had tested a new cruise missile.
The first weapons activity by Kim Jong Un’s regime in almost six months came as President Joe Biden’s envoy for North Korea, Sung Kim, was in Tokyo for talks with Japan and South Korea on how to end the diplomatic standoff.
Wednesday’s dueling tests will likely give fresh impetus to that effort — and add to the foreign policy headaches facing the White House.
