Entire US mainland in range of N. Korean nukes after latest test – Kim Jong-un

The North Korean ICBM system is now able to fire at “random regions and locations at random times” with the “entire” US mainland within its range, according to the latest statement by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

He spoke shortly after the second flight test of yet another long-range missile, the Hwasong-14.

According to the Korean Central News Agency as cited by AP, Kim expressed “great satisfaction” with the test aimed at reaffirming that the missile was able to deliver a “large-sized, heavy nuclear warhead.”

Kim said that the latest launch confirmed that the missile system is reliable, and is able to fire at “random regions and locations at random times,” with the “entire” US mainland now within range.

The North Korean leader went on with a “serious warning” to the US, which has been “meaninglessly blowing its trumpet” in threatening Pyongyang.  read more
