This test of a nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) comes just one week after a similar test and on the heels of North Korea's flipping us off with a series of military ballistic tests that were as successful as a Hillary Clinton campaign strategy.
The missile, a Minuteman III that's to be launched Wednesday will be unarmed . . . at least that's what we're standing by.
Pentagon officials said this test had been "long planned" and thus has nothing to do with our macho posturing with Kim Jong Un and his patented haircut.
The same launch point and Pacific test range will be used, officials said, implying that the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California will be the launch site. Last week, a Minuteman III flew about 4,201 miles before splashing down in the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. (No animals were hurt in the testing of that product.)
If this doesn't get Kim to think twice before going all "Dirty Harry" on us, nothing will.
President Trump said of the Minuteman III: "It's a really tremendous missile, right folks?"
