North Korea has working rickets but what they don't have is working guidance systems. They have no chance of hitting anything on purpose. The limiting factor for them on ICBMS is they can't control where they go on reentry.

North Korean announcement live stream is up, expected in 30 minutes from now.

Heh. I was just wondering the same thing.

They said it was a Hwasong-14 which reached an altitude of 2,800km and hit target after 39 minutes flight.

Experts estimate it's maximum range is 8,000-10,000km

Photos show they have a minimum of 5 more of these.

From your source:


The missile is believed to be an Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile, not an ICBM, according to the U.S. military.

The altitude of the North Korean ballistic missile "greatly exceeded" 2,500km, according to the Japanese defence ministry.

North Korea is expected to make a major announcement today at 3:30 local time (7:30 BST), according to media reports.

The US military was wrong.

Either that or they're being deceptive because the political consequences of this being an ICBM.

I think they were wrong and briefed Trump wrong, which explain his tweet; the tweet didn't seem to acknowledged the possibility of anything out of the norm, or an ICBM

That's somewhat comforting, but shouldn't the world stop them before they achieve this capability?

So where did this missile actually go anyway, anyone heard where it landed yet?


Sea of Japan.



The environmentalists must be incensed. South Korea has polluted that portion of The Sea of Japan with at least 10 toxic missiles this year alone, haven't they?



I think I would prefer the environmentalist who actually knows which of the two Koreas is the bad guy. Try again smart guy. There's only two choices.

ICBM = Inter Continental Ballistic Missile

What continent is North Korea part of, and what major countries are on that continent?

I'm attempting to determine what makes this ICBM test so much more dangerous than all previous tests...none of which were an ICBM.

The global News Media is making a really big deal about this being an ICBM.

because this one can hit Alaska or maybe even Seattle.

Japan says they observed the missile traveled 600 miles and was airborne for approx 40 minutes.

Doesn't the USA have the capability to stop a missile, if it's flying for 40 minute to get to Alaska or Seattle? For that length of time, we should have at least a few "shots" at destroying it, from both ground and airborne intercepts.

The N Korean ICBM super countermeasures are capable of blocking such information

Our best chance of stopping a foreign ICBM is to shoot it down on its upward trajectory. The reason being, the speeds at which icbm warheads travel on their way down makes them almost impossible to shoot.

Not to mention a single missle can carry like 10 warheads.. they shoot down like buckshot from a shotgun. You would have to hit every


The problem with shooting it down on its upward trajectory.. is.. it already has a head start and you need a missle fast enough to catch it after it's already been launched.. and accurate enough to hit it before it deploys warheads.

It's like hitting a supersonic needle in a massive haystack

Thank-you LucidParadox for that information. I didn't know that we were so defenseless once the warhead is in it's downward trajectory!

Speaking of trajectory, what is the best trajectory for North Korea to obtain the greatest distance...to strike a target at maximum range?

For instance, a long-jump competitor can't launch him/herself too vertically, or too horizontally, if he/she wants to obtain maximum horizontal distance.

I wonder if North Korea even has a clue at what trajectory/angle will yield maximum down-range distance? They've not tested this yet.

That's intentional. North Korea isn't ready to kill anyone by launching into a land mass. Not yet...
