Military Analysts: N. Korean Submarine Missile Launch a 'Successful Failure'

North Korea is calling its submarine-launched ballistic missile test on Saturday a “great success,” while South Korea labeled it a failure. Military analysts, however, are classifying the missile launch as a “successful failure.” They say with each test Pyongyang is coming closer to developing a new capability to strike its enemies in the region and even target the U.S. mainland. “Even test failures push development forward,” said North Korea analyst Daniel Pinkston via Twitter on Sunday.
