The North Korean ICBM just fired could reach any point on US mainland

US Pentagon confirms that a North Korean missile fired Tuesday was an intercontinental ballistic missile which stayed aloft for 50 minutes and reached a 2800-mile trajectory before dropping into Japan’s exclusive economic water 200 miles of its coast. Pentagon analysts say this means that North Korea has an ICBM that can theoretically reach any point on the US mainland. The missile was launched from Pyongsong in South Pyongan Province, in the face of US warnings and sanctions by China and Russia. After the last mission launch on Sept. 15, the Trump administration branded North Korea a state-sponsor of terror. This was the third ICBM North Korea has tested.

President Trump’s response: “We’ll take care of it. We are building a stronger US military than ever before.” Defense Secretary James Mattis: The latest North Korean missile went higher and further than any before it. “Pyongyang has a missile capability that can reach any point in the world.”

    What an ignorant comment. Trump has already done more to bolster the US military in 1 year than the muslim obama did in 8 years.

      Increased defense spending by 60 billion. Stationed aircraft Carrier Groups around N Korea. Moral of troops up 100%. Appointed Mattis and McMaster to lead military..Let the world know that there is a new sheriff in town who will take no crap from our enemies. Stopped interfering in Israel’s right of self defense. Many other big changes.. MAGA.. G-d Bless President Trump.

        …All these are great, BUT every day the odious super-fat piglet Kim continues walking this Earth, U.S. reputation of just a huge “paper tiger” continues to grow and increase — something not lost on
        Iran, Saudi Arabia, and of course Russia !

    2800 miles east of Pyongyang is almost at the Int’l Date Line – but the missile ended its trajectory 200 miles west of Japan – how did it get to travel 2800 miles ??

      The missile went almost straight up and straight down. It was a test of how far it could go had it been angled in a different direction The conclusion apparently is – as far as your back yard and then some.

    Maybe it turned around and tried to go back home when it saw big, bad Trump making his ‘scowly’ face.

    Mr. President, If you decide to flatten the launch site, you have my unqualified support.

    Is the big, bad U.S.A. just a “paper tiger” – with all its aircraft carriers, enormous Super-Power weaponry and
    17 intelligence agencies ?! Sure begins to look it…

    The first task is to understand the extent of the danger from a North Korean nuclear missile. The website at IranScam.com addresses that issue.
    The next task is to assess whether the North Korean leader is insane enough to use the weapon that he has built. Personally, I am not willing to bet on his soundness of mind or unwillingness to act as a proxy for China, Russia, Iran etc.
    My sense is that this is a time for adult decision making, rather than kicking the can down a possibly very short road. At this stage, the risks are too great. The only sane conclusion is that the North Korean leadership needs to be eliminated ASAP.

    The U.S. should deploy Nuclear tipped ballistic missiles across all our allies in the pacific. Japan, Guam, Philippines, Taiwan and South Korea. This will infuriate China and maybe then they will do something to curtail North Korea’s nuclear program in exchange for our removing the missiles.

    Other than that we probably should shoot down their next ballistic missile launch.

    This boy Sick Ass Kim has a small country, isolated, very low in ressources, he could not get a grab on ICBMs and minimised (transportable) nuclear weapons without a strong money, technology, training, and know-how support from some other sick asses, to be more specific the Sick Yellow Ass and the Sick Red Ass.

      Kim is getting funding and support from Iran. Thanks Obama and Hillary for lifting sanctions on Iran with your unbelievably dumb JCPOA.
