The latest launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile by the rogue regime of North Korea could have dire consequences for much of the United States.
Previous missile launches by the despotic dictatorship had proven to be a comedy of errors. Projectiles were often destroyed under their own shortcomings just moments after launch, further embarrassing their tiny tyrant Kim Jong Un. Kim, like the other “supreme” leaders who came before him, is hellbent on destroying the United States through the use of atomic weapons that the nation may or may not already possess.
This has led to the U.S. keeping a keen eye on the military advancements of the hermit kingdom. July 4th’s missile launch out of North Korea had piqued America’s interest in the program, as that projectile was thought to be capable of reaching as far as Anchorage, Alaska or perhaps even Los Angeles. Just last week, however, Kim ordered a second ICBM test that defied all previous odds, demonstrating a missile that many experts believe is easily capable of touching down in Denver or Chicago…a vast improvement on previous models.
Throughout the crisis, President Trump had been leaning heavily on China to corral Kim and his maddening militaristic vision, but to no avail. Now, the Commander in Chief is ready to “handle” North Korea all by himself, presumably with military action.
“President Donald Trump convened his first White House cabinet meeting since his staff shakeup.
“Asked about the continuing provocations by North Korea, the president said the situation ‘will be handled.’
“‘We’re gonna be able to handle North Korea. It will be handled. We handle everything,’ he said.
“Trump tapped retired Gen. John Kelly, who was serving as DHS secretary, as his new chief of staff after the departure of Reince Priebus.
“Trump was seated between Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis (Ret.) at the table as he addressed reporters.”
Trump’s casually vague response was delivered with confidence, indicating that a plan may already be in place for admonishing the aggressive nature of Kim and gang.
It is likely that North Korea has a number of atomic weapons, including devices created using both hydrogen and plutonium, capable of wiping out entire cities in the U.S., South Korea, or Japan. The only question that remains is how likely it is that the DPRK military has developed a way to include these devices on the warhead of an ICBM. Should the North Korean military be able to actually deliver one of these weapons to a majorly populated area, the ensuing global conflict would likely be catastrophic.
