Experts Now Claim North Korea Missile Capabilities Are Much Further Along.
Kim Jong Un Fired A Ballistic Missile Today And Threatened The Lives Of Countless Japanese. This new test revealed that North Korea is more of a global threat than Experts originally predicted. The missile was fired from Pyongyang and had a trajectory that was going to hit a prominent economic area in Japan had it hit. Luckily for Japan and North Korea, the missile broke up in the atmosphere before it could do any damage.
Our Pacific Forces tracked the missile and tweeted the following.
The U.S. @DeptofDefense detected and tracked a single #NorthKorea missile launch today at about 1:17 p.m. EST. Initial assessment indicates that this missile was an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). More: https://t.co/AjOGOhd6HF

This missile technology shown in North Korea’s test today is a threat to the world. The test showed that North Korea now has Intercontinental missiles which have the ability to carry nuclear payloads and the range to hit the US East Coast. This is news as previously experts had predicted that they would not be capable of hitting the US until the end of Trump’s first term.
The US Pacific Forces reassured Americans stating:
“Our commitment to the defense of our allies, including the Republic of Korea and Japan, in the face of these threats, remains ironclad. We remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies from any attack or provocation.”
Trump also addressed the missile launch today and said “We will take care of it.” It’s getting to the point where North Korea needs to be handled they are no longer a threat to just the local countries and after the test they ran today, simple sanctions may not be enough to stop the Dangerous Dictator.

First launch in months
The launch in the early hours of Wednesday was the first since September 15, when North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the Japanese island Hokkaido, eventually crashing into the Pacific Ocean.
That launch was condemned by leaders around the world.
The UN Security Council implemented new economic sanctions on North Korea as a result of that nuclear test.
