Not sure if this is Chumph directed saber-rattling, or the Military Brass has decided to let Mr Kim know what we can do. But the US has launched two Minuteman III missile in the last week or so, the last to hit a target 5000 miles away in the middle of the Pacific. How far these missiles can go is classified – but assuming there were some of these based in Alaska – 5,000 miles is more than enough to reach North Korea. They are capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads, and are renowned for their accuracy – claimed to be able to his within 20 ft of a target at 5,000 miles.
With China doing a fast walk backwards on North Korea’s agit-prop, this could go two ways. Something stupid, like a missile failure hitting Japan or South Korea, precipitating war…Or Mr Kim follows China’s advice and sits down and STFU.
The Chumph is just stupid, and desperate enough to want a war to prop up his opinion polls. With the only National Leader with more loose marbles than Putin’s Bitch has.
