WaPo and CNN report that, according to some US intelligence sources, North Korea now has a miniaturized nuclear warhead. One that can fit in the nose cone of an Inter Continental Ballistic Missile. One that he is planning to go far enough to reach the west coast of the United States.
If this doesn’t focus your attention in a laser-like fashion, you either don’t know what that means, you have not educated yourself on the reality of what this threat is or you’re too young to remember the Cuban Missile Crisis.
The USA is busy updating its THAAD missile defense system, but it takes only one getting past us to absolutely ruin the day for San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and/or Seattle. And as the wind spreads the radiation and fallout, the rest of America - for a very long time.
After decades of basically ignoring North Korea’s research into miniaturization and missile technology (with copious help from China and Iran) Kim Jung Un believes the USA is a clawless Eagle. One that will rant and rave, but do nothing. And that means there is nothing to prevent him from becoming the greatest threat in the world. Unfortunately, he is has misjudged the current America as he is no longer dealing with pacifiers in the White House.
This is the most serious threat our country has faced since Kennedy stood nose-to-nose with Kruschev twenty-six miles from our Florida border …refusing to allow Russia to put nuclear missiles in Cuba.
