The rogue regime in North Korea on Thursday triggered evacuation warnings and railway closures in Japan after firing a barrage of at least six missiles, including an ICBM, according to reports.

The LA Times said the missiles, fired into the sea, continued a series of “weapons tests that ha[ve] escalated tensions in the region.”

The launch of the intercontinental ballistic missile was a prelude to the launch of several short-range missiles, prompting the United States to extend its joint air force exercises with South Korea.

Japanese officials said the North Korean missiles traveled as far as 300 miles.

A day earlier, North Korea launched 20 missiles, leaving nations in the region on edge.

“North Korea has further dialed up its testing activity since late September, including what it described as simulated nuclear attacks on South Korean and U.S. targets. It has said its tests are meant as a warning against the United States’ military drills with allies South Korea and Japan, exercises that it portrays as rehearsals for a potential invasion,” the report explained.

The report continued with speculation that experts believe North Korea is trying to force the U.S. to accept it as a nuclear power, and give it power to negotiate economy and security concessions.

The Biden administration responded with a promise of “costs and consequences” for North Korea.

The report explained Japanese officials had feared North Korea’s missile was over its northern territory, but later revised that assessment.

Spokesman Hirokazu Matsuno explained the evacuation alerts and such were “based on a trajectory analysis that indicted a flyover.”

Adrienne Watson of the U.S. National Security Council said Joe Biden and his national security team members were reviewing the situation.

Reuters reported that the ICBM might have “failed.”

A coalition from the free countries around the world has expressed concern that North Korea will test a nuclear device, which it is banned from doing by the U.N. Security Council, which also ordered that it not launch ICBMs.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
