“Sorry ’bout that”

What happens when a North Korean ballistic missile test fails in flight and explodes in a populated area? On April 28, 2017, North Korea launched a single Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) from Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province (the Korean People’s Army’s Air and Anti-Air Force Unit 447 in Ryongak-dong, Sunchon City, to be more precise). That missile failed shortly after launch and crashed in the Chongsin-dong, in North Korean city of Tokchon, causing considerable damage to a complex of industrial or agricultural buildings.

    What happens is that the Supreme Leader kills those rocket scientists in a horrifying way, then puts their extended families into concentration camps. Hey, they knew the price when they agreed to help Kim Jong Nutjob deliver world-wide terror in exchange for food and shelter.

    The NORK citizens in the area are told it was an unprovoked attack by that running-dog imperialist Donald Trump and that they all must work harder and make more sacrifices to ensure the triumph of the glorious people’s revolution.

    I’ve read that NK put the families of the rocket techs downrange to give them an incentive not to fail.
