The Denver Post - - NEWS -

U.S. Sen. Cory Gard­ner is again sound­ing the alarm over North Korea af­ter the rogue na­tion on Fri­day fired an­other mis­sile to­ward Ja­pan in its lat­est provo­ca­tion of Amer­ica and its al­lies.

“As North Korea’s Kim Jong Un con­tin­ues to defy in­ter­na­tional sanc­tions and threaten the United States and our al­lies with an­other bal­lis­tic mis­sile launch, our re­sponse is clear: We will not tol­er­ate this bel­liger­ent be­hav­ior,” the Colorado Repub­li­can said in a writ­ten state­ment.

The As­so­ci­ated Press re­ports the bal­lis­tic mis­sile flew longer than any of North Korea’s pre­vi­ous mis­siles and landed in the ocean off Ja­pan.

Gard­ner has had sev­eral clashes with Kim in the past year, in­clud­ing call­ing the North Korean leader a “whack job” dur­ing a TV in­ter­view. Py­ongyang’s Korean Cen­tral News Agency re­sponded by say­ing Gard­ner was “psy­chopath” who had “per­pe­trated wicked blas­phemy” against Kim.
