North Korea claims to have test-launched its first ICBM

It will be difficult to confirm many of the details of the Hwasgon-14 launch, but if it is determined to be an ICBM test then it could be a potential game-changing development in what may be the world’s most dangerous nuclear standoff and a direct rebuke to President Trump.

  • South Korean President Moon Jae-In promised to keep THAAD (the missile defense system) but then halted it after the election due “environmental concerns” (rather like Trudeau). He has no choice to keep it up and running now. Should he stall it, Park Geun-Hye’s exit from office will look tame by comparison.

    As a rogue nuclear state with a cash flow problem, I wonder how much North Korea would charge for a contract nuking of mecca??? Would they throw in Ottawa as well?

      Considering that they were helped by Iran and Pakistan, maybe.
      How strong is the Iranian desire to destroy Mecca?
      It might be higher than we think.

    I can’t see this guy’s end game. Aside from “Glorious Leader” propaganda for internal consumption or eventual billions from the international community to stop being such an annoying asshole, I just can’t believe he thinks he will rule the world with his limited nuclear arsenal and fledgling delivery systems. Noboby can be that big of an idiot, can they?

    If all they can nuke is Hawaii, LA, San Francisco then what’s the downside? I heard all those people pinky swore to move to Canada anyway.

        And for the liberals who live there and remind me “But fallout will drift east; you will suffer!” I remind them that the US detonated hundreds of atomic bombs above ground in Nevada and New Mexico and we’re all still here.
