Because of Joe Biden’s big mouth and weakness, several of our enemies spent last week saber-rattling and humiliating the US.
North Korea conducted a missile test over the weekend, the first to occur since Joe Biden took office.
According to Reuters, Pyongyang fired two short-range missiles over the weekend in a challenge to Joe Biden after his triple-fall going up the steps to board Air Force One.
Update: North Korea fired two ballistic missiles according to senior US officials.
North Korea launched two ballistic missiles on Thursday, according to an intelligence assessment, a senior US official tells CNN.
The US military and intelligence community is still analyzing the data from the test launch to determine what kind of missile was fired and how far it went.
It is not known yet whether the missiles were short, medium or long range, such as an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
Earlier in the day Yonhap reported that NK fired at least one unidentified projectile into the East Sea.
March 25 (Yonhap) — North Korea has fired at least one unidentified projectile into the East Sea, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said Thursday.
Other details, including how many and what type of projectile was launched, were not immediately available.
It marks the North’s second missile launch in a week after its firing of cruise missiles off the west coast over the weekend was belatedly made public the previous day.

Pyongyang is saber-rattling and fired off the missiles after it was reported that North Korea is not responding to any behind-the-scenes diplomatic outreach by Biden’s Admin.
“To date, we have not received any response from Pyongyang,” a senior Biden official told Reuters.
Last week Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un threatened Biden in a first public comment directed toward the Biden Administration.
“If it wants to sleep in peace for the coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step,” she said, according to KCNA.
When asked about North Korea’s provocation Tuesday night after he returned to the White House, Biden laughed it off and walked away.
REPORTER: On North Korea: Do you consider that to be a real provocation by North Korea?
BIDEN: No. According to the Defense Department, it’s business as usual. There’s no new—there’s no new wrinkle in what they did.
REPORTER: Will it affect diplomacy at all?
BIDEN: *Laughs* pic.twitter.com/sc1sHjhwZV
