TRUMP’S HEART ‘MISSES A BEAT’: JONG-UN DECLARES MARCH 18 REVOLUTION WITH SUCCESSFUL TEST OF ‘HIGH-THRUST’ MISSILE ENGINE CAPABLE OF REACHING AMERICA

The dictator observed the “high-thrust” engine being tested at Tongchang-ri rocket launch station today.It follows the shock launch of multiple missiles towards US bases in Japan earlier this month.

Watching today’s test, Kim declared a “new birth” for North Korea’s rockets.

And the “Dear Leader” warned the world it would soon witness the Hermit Kingdom’s “great victory”.

The engine will help the country achieve world-class “satellite” launch capability, state news agency KCNA said.

This indicates it was a new type of rocket engine for long-range missiles.

Space rockets have a similar design to intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The UN believes North Korea is using its so-called space programme to design a missile capable of hitting the US.Trigger-happy leader Kim has boasted the country is close to a test-launch of an ICBM.

KCNA – which the Communist regime’s official propaganda mouthpiece – said: “He (Kim) noted that the success made in the current test marked a great event of historic significance as it declared a new birth of the ‘Juche-based’ rocket industry.”The term “Juche” refers to North Korea’s homegrown ideology, or unique way of thought.

The news agency added: “He emphasised that the whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries.”

Kim gave the order for the launch and watched from an observation tower as the engine fired up.The test was conducted to check various technical parts of the engine, such as the thrust power in its combustion chamber, the accurate movement of its turbine pump, its control system and various valves and their structural safety and reliability.

North Korea declared the test a success.

Kim hailed the country’s weapons industry for a “series of unprecedented successes”.The despot said the test was a great leap forward for North Korea’s rocket industry – matching the space programme of other countries.

He declared the “historic” launch day would now be known as the “March 18 revolution”.

The high-thrust engine was developed by Kim’s scientists at the Academy of the National Defence Science.

North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests and a series of missile launches and is believed by experts and government officials to be working to develop nuclear-warhead missiles that can reach the US.

The US and China have pledged to work together to get the North to take “a different course” and move away from its weapons programmes.

US president Donald Trump’s new right hand man Rex Tillerson met with his Chinese counterpart on Saturday.

But The Donald later blamed China for failing to rein in pal Kim.
