Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.

North Korea Warns U.S. Shootdown of Test-Fired Missiles Would Be “Declaration of War”

HeadlineMar 07, 2023

North Korea’s government has warned the United States against shooting down any of its missile tests. Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, said any such interception would be viewed as a “declaration of war.” Her warning came a day after the U.S. flew a nuclear-capable B-52 bomber over the Korean Peninsula in a joint drill with South Korean warplanes.

Meanwhile, Japan’s space agency failed in its debut attempt to launch its new H3 rocket to orbit on Tuesday after the vehicle’s second-stage engine failed to ignite. The malfunction destroyed a land observation satellite that was designed to help detect North Korean ballistic missile launches.
