North Korea Is Claiming To Have Successfully Tested A New Rocket Engine

NBC: North Korea Says It Tested New ‘High-Thrust’ Rocket Engine

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un announced the ground test of a "high-thrust" rocket engine, the country's state-run media said Saturday.

State-run media KCNA said that the rocket engine would help the country's plans to launch satellites, but the isolated regime has also in the past conducted nuclear tests and has said it is preparing to test an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Kim Jong Un "emphasized that the whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries," KCNA said on its website. He said the test was a "success," according to the state-run media outlet.

Since he's already doing it, think he'd take my satellite with it.

The author of the article begins by referring to North Korea as "isolated." North Korea counts as allies nations such as China, Russia, and Iran. These are among the world's most powerful nations. Having China alone as an ally is a huge plus for North Korea.

As such, with whom North Korea has as friends it is incorrect to refer to North Korea as "isolated." The author has begun the analysis with a flawed premise. Anytime we begin an analysis with a flawed assumption we are unlikely to reach a correct conclusion. Ezsentially, while I will read the entire article time permitting, it is probably unworthy of the bandwidth it is taking up and to think people get paid for sufh superficial analysis.

They are isolated, apart from china. Iran and Russia are not in a position to financially help as they themselves are and were recovering from economic sanctions.
Militarily Russia has abandoned the nth many years ago and Iran is far from a powerful nation with a paper military populated with obsolete and reverse engineered equipment whilst staffed with 3rd world operators.
How did those sams supplied and fired by thise who were equiped and trained by the worlds most powerful military fare against israel recently?

Of course North Korea is not isolated "stricto sensus", but the only ally they have to fight for them is China.
