North Korea, Ballistic missles, and us

I just saw that NK launched four missiles this morning. One landing within 190 miles fro Japan. I think this is going to be the next biggest issue our country will have to deal with. I would bet that by years end, we will have taken some form of action against NK.

Yes, looney tunes Korean ruler doesn't trust looney tunes US ruler so he wants to make sure he can strike the US bases in Japan. First thing I have ever heard anything logical from dear leader.

Bullshit. North Korea has literally thousands of artillery pieces within range of and pointed at Seoul and nearly 10 million active duty and reserve soldiers. Its standing army is ~50% bigger than the Russians and is the fourth biggest in the world.

"North Korea has experienced a string of rocket failures over the past year. Of at least nine launches, six were failures. Several of the test failures involved the more advanced, longer-range Musudan missile. These missiles launched earlier this week were older, more reliable Hwasong-7 types. Descended from the famous Scud missile and otherwise known as Scud ER (Extended Range), Hwasong-7s are short-range range ballistic missiles with an operational range of about 600 miles.
Within hours, the United States military deployed a pair of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile systems to South Korea. The missiles were delivered by C-17 transport to Osan Air Base 40 miles south of the capital Seoul. Developed by the U.S. Army, THAAD is designed to intercept incoming ballistic missile warheads at high altitude. THAAD can defend a larger geographic area from missile attack that the shorter-range Patriot PAC-3 system." PM

Last I heard Seoul was not a city in the United States.

Sounds like this is South Koreas problem not ours.

I was countering your ridiculous assertion that NK was a paper pussycat.
