Kim

Kim hails the new rocket engine test when the new Secretary of Defense was meeting with President Xi in China.

Source is KCNA whatever that is.

I think you mean: Kim Jong-Un Hails Engine Test As 'New Birth' For North Korea's Rocket Industry

SEOUL: North Korea has tested a powerful new rocket engine, state media said on Sunday, with leader Kim Jong-Un hailing the successful test as a "new birth" for the nation's rocket industry.
The test was apparently timed to coincide with the visit of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Beijing on Saturday, where he warned that regional tensions had reached a "dangerous level".

Sister, did you have a comment on Mr. Kim Jong-Un??

Thanks from Twisted Sister

I will bet a dime against a donut that is solid fuel but doubt they can achieve orbit to bomb The District and to do that they need celestial navigation unless they cracked the GPS code.

Actually, this was front page on the BBC and the CBC this morning.

North Korea's state media says its military has tested a new high-performance rocket engine.

Leader Kim Jong-un declared the test "a new birth" for the North's rocket industry, state news agency KCNA said.

He said the engine would help North Korea achieve world-class satellite launch capability, it added.
The development, not confirmed elsewhere, comes as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visits China - Pyongyang's main ally.

After personally overseeing the test, Mr Kim "emphasised that the world will soon witness the great significance of the epoch-making victory we achieved today", KCNA reported, adding that it marked the birth of the country's rocket industry.

Mr Tillerson's East Asian tour has been dominated by anxieties over North Korea's nuclear capabilities.

DTRM, dual thrust rocket motor which has solid fuel. Dual thrust because she (da bird) has boost and then sustainer grooves cut in the solid fuel rocket motor. 66,000 HP in boost.

In "related" news:
North Korea ‘White Paper’ Labels U.S. a ‘Human Rights Desert’

Compared to the orderly workers’ paradise in North Korea, the United States is a nightmarish wasteland of democracy with a horrific social system based on “the law of the jungle and extreme individualism.”
That is the crux of a report released this week by the North Korean government’s Institute of International Studies, as reported in Rodong Sinmun, the newsletter of North Korea’s Communist Party.

“The U.S. is loud in its advocacy of ‘universal respect for human rights,’ publishing ‘annual reports’ that deal with the human rights situations in other countries. However, it can never cover up nor negate its own human rights situation that has been the subject of international criticism and condemnation,” Rodong reported.

In the paper, the authors question how the United States dares lecture North Korea for throwing dissidents in concentration camps or blowing inconvenient public officials to shreds with anti-aircraft guns when American dentists charge $500 for tooth extractions.
