Latest North Korean ICBM Can Reach Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago

While North Korea has test fired numerous ballistic missiles (mostly intermediate-range, including one intercontinental) in the past, and as such today’s launch was largely seen as merely the latest political provocation to Trump by a seemingly oblivious Kim John-Un, there was one notable difference in the launch post-mortem: according to press and Pentagon reports, the maximum altitude attained by the ICBM was 3,700 km (2,300 miles) with a flight time of about 47 minutes. This is material because according to All Things Nuclear, based on the latest information, today’s missile test by North Korea could easily reach not only the US West Coast, but also a number of major US cities.

There’s also the possibility that a US-targeted Nork missile would have to fly over parts of Canada, placing the country at risk in case of a shoot-down or malfunction.

    Not to mention a submarine launch, or more easily, from a container ship module. Or the risk of an EMP strike.

    Time to confirm NORK’s intent and act pragmatically, ASAP.

    Maybe we should back off on our obsession with trannys perhaps, and start dealing with real problems?

    Please Dear Leader,
    Strike decisively at the city of San Francisco, as it is the only thing preventing the worldwide adoption of the wisdom of Juche.

      Add L.A. and you’ve got a deal

  • Start treating North Korea’s backer – China – as a pariah and do as the South Koreans do – break the illusion of North Korea being an advanced country.

    Maybe just time to turn the place into a glowing radioactive ash pile.

    • If the regime can be brought down (and many believe it can), there would be no need for it.

    And remember, the iranians have tech deals with that fat man in the north!
    So whatever the norks develop, the other whackjob 12th imam followers will have as well… But don’t worry, let’s just worry about tranny’s and destroying what little capability our armed forces had before tali-trudeau took over.

      Don’t forget about Pakistan which is likely where North Korea got some of its nuclear “knowhow” on centrifuges if not more.

      • Bla Bla

        Ah yes, totally forgot about the esteemed Mr Khan and his dealings.

  • Bla Bla

    Oh, and memo to the yanks, be sure to take out the nork nuke when it’s just over wynni the crook’s house.

    lol

    It’s easy to launch a missile for range, now accuracy, that’s the real problem.

    • Alain

      Doesn’t need much accuracy to do a lot of damage.

  • Cat-astrophe

    No wonder Justin stays out of Ottawa.

      No problem, just set the coordinates on the location of his latest selfie.

    A destroyed America would be the greatest thing to ever happen for the left

  • The only solution for the US, SK and Japan is to attack NK within the next few months, in a massive war operation. First, try to assassinate the NK leader and his closest henchmen using commandos; then blow up all known missile launches, If necessary, bomb whole cities that may house leaders. Then invade the country with a large and well-equipped army, navy and air force contingent. Take no prisoners till the job is done. Any armed resistance to be annihilated without hesitation. In short, make war and beat the NK enemy to a pulp. Advise China, Russia that no interference from them will be tolerated. Ignore the UN and EU.

    Wait, can hit L.A. and Chicago? Is this supposed to be bad news or good news?
