North Korea launches new missile...

First topic message reminder :

What a Face

North Korea has finally done it...

Yesterday they launched their latest ICBM,  this one with a predicted range of 13,000 kms,  compared to 10,000 kms for the previous model..

That means that NK now has the capability to reach Washington D.C. to the east, whereas last week they would have landed in the Pacific.

That previous 10k mark also meant that they now also could hit Tasmania to the south (and LA and Alaska to the east..) --  before this year,  their other missiles would have landed still well north of New Guinea..

Without a doubt, North Korea will be wiped out within the first day or two if they did attack anyone --  but they could still do a lot of damage if they launch a few pre-emptive hostile strikes...

A.   Because they can't spell  'piss'..

That's racist

No, that's "statist"...

It would be a pretty one-sided "world war"...

America and a few of its allies vs. North Korea..

With China and Russia abstaining -- but still strengthening their borders against the inevitable flood of refugees from the Korean Peninsula.
