Is this the missile Donald Trump is afraid of? Kim Jong-un puts show of nuclear strength in Pyongyang

Tension between North Korea and the United States rose to new levels on Saturday after the Pyongyang regime unveiled what could be a missile capable of striking the American mainland.

The new long-range weapon – the KN14 – was the centrepiece of an array of weaponry put on show at a military parade in the North Korean capital.

    So Hawaii or Seattle get nuked. What’s the downside?

      They can also reach California. Maybe that’s Trump’s plan from the beginning.

        San Diego is outta reach, the rest of this state above San Louis Obisbo County can go hang (or be swept away in a flash of some real K-Pop) for all I care.
        NorCal (the other NorCs) wishes the same for SoCal.

        Clearsky, ahem…Perhaps this is the goal? Maybe not, but still fun to watch.

      I hope they screw up and target ‘Frisco.

      My little piece of paradise in on the route to Seattle. Big possible downside for me.

      Why can’t they nuke San Francisco?

      Tulsi Gabbard supports islam which I find odd for a Hindu when islam slaughter close to 80,000,000 of her people.
      She’s a democrat and they love to volunteer to be killed .

    I wonder if their pride parades are as “vibrant” as their Communist counterpart in Vietnam. This is what the world is coming down to Homosexuality, Communism/Socialism and Islam. Meanwhile religions mainly Christianity, Judaism are increasingly facing greater persecution.

      That’s because it’s not an islamic state yet.

    The Americans probably know where every one of those launchers are and they probably have cruise missiles pointed at each and every one of them. They could probably destroy every one on the launch pad in a few hours.

      There is some thought that they have developed mobile launch capacity for their big missiles, meaning that they take much less time to launch (they’re pre-fueled) and can be moved around. It will be virtually impossible to prevent such missiles from being fired (though after one fires, declaring its location, it may be able to take out the launcher during reloading).

    Another success story for the UN . They didn’t want to end the war in 1953 , so they came up with a peace treaty because it was easier.

    Now N.Korea is a Nuclear threat .

    After about 160 wars , the UN only sanctioned about 4 of them to stop the slaughters….but millions have died from the wars they didn’t stop.
