Multiple reports allege the U.S. and South Korea participated in a joint “show of force” in the wake of the North Korea ICBM test by firing missiles into the South China Sea.
The rebuttal to the successful North Korean ICBM test comes at a time when tensions continue to escalate. The U.S. just recently called for a UN Security Council meeting regarding the “Hermit Kingdom”.

U.S. and South Korean troops fired missiles into the waters off South Korea, the U.S. military said on Tuesday, in a show of force after North Korea’s ICBM test.
“The deep strike precision capability enables the (South Korean)-U.S. alliance to engage the full array of time critical targets under all weather conditions,” the U.S. Army said in a statement, adding that the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) and the Republic of Korea’s Hyunmoo Missile II were utilized.
