4. It's as bad as the opening line.

Unless there's an announcement by North Korea as to purpose, that's some commentator's interpretation being passed off as objective fact without attribution to the commentator or acknowledgement that it's not actual fact. (It might be. I'm not sure what proof there'd be, however.)

At least missiles are projectiles.

As for the capabilities of the missiles, they're unknown. That they're more that tubes with rocket engines on one end and fins is more than we know. (Of course, they could have just said, "These are a specific type of missile, code named Orange Crush, nuclear capable, designed with the assistance of Russia on Syrian soil," with just as much devotion to truth as they showed in the first sentence. And, of course, everybody would accept it as fact.)
