N.Korea says missiles can strike US mainland



SEOUL — North Korea said it possessed "strategic rocket forces" capable of striking the US mainland, as it responded to a new US-South Korean deal to extend the range of the South's missile systems.

In a series of bulletins released on the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Tuesday, the spokesman of the National Defense Commission also said Pyongyang was ready to match any enemy, "nuclear for nuclear, missile for missile".

The warnings came two days after South Korea announced an agreement with the United States to almost triple the range of its missiles to cover the whole of North Korea.

"We are not concealing the fact that (North Korea's) revolutionary military, including strategic rocket forces, has placed not only South Korean enemy forces and US forces in the Korean peninsula but also Japan, Guam and even the US mainland within its target range," the spokesman said.

More bluff from North Korea, or consider this to be a very serious threat?

Didn't they test an ICBM a couple years ago and almost hit Australia it was so far off their aim


I recall something along the lines a while back...

Nothing to worry about. That government is nothing but a bunch of buffoons. They'd be a bloody smear in short order if they tried anything...... And if it were a nuke, most of the world would help take them down. Can't fight a ground war when you're people are starving.... Screw 'em.

Okay, so they can hit us. Hmm.. They said this garbage in the 90's to play Clinton for more food and fuel oil aid too. Maybe they do...Maybe they don't. I don't believe it until they shoot one that actually works for a change....in a safe direction...and it lands within a full map grid box of where they intended it to.

When they have that part down, I'd just note to them that while they may have 'some missiles'....the U.S. had 4 thousand nuclear warheads last I checked and a little over 1,000 in deployed status. They could hurt us....we'd literally erase them as if mankind had never discovered that little piece of Asia.

Oh no, i'm shaking in fear of an attack from Korea!
what a joke. Korea is as fierce and scary as a kitten. Not to mention every country says crap like this to strike fear into citizens, like an alpha male. When in reality, its never true, or it just would never happen. Especially not with Korea rofl. Again, what a joke. They should also be careful with how they say things, if they say that to another country, then that country could take that as a threat.

Whatever they got going on, we can vaporize it from space before it gets close. There's no way in hell I'm going to take this as an actual threat we should be concerned about.

Who cares? We can't be hit with missiles anyway.

Considering it takes them a month to set up a missile test I wouldn't worry too much about a mass attack. Though I guess it only takes one but it has to fly straight first.

I'm not as concerned with them shooting the missiles directly at us as I am them shooting them miles above us and exploding a nuke causing an Electromagnetic Pulse in turn frying our power infrastructure.
It's our Achilles heel.

I'll believe it when I see it, did they think everyone forgot about that dud a few months back? Also, if they think AK counts as striking the mainland, I guess they would be right...but I don't see how destroying a small island in a chain of small islands off the coast of Alaska is going to affect anyone.


These turds need to hang up their military ambitions and focus on something productive.

If we laughed mercilessly at Il what makes Un think he has a chance. South Korea isn't afraid of you and their right next door.

If the Americans can hit a satellite with a missile I am sure they can manage a long range missile from north korea


On Feb. 14, 2008, President George W. Bush announced the United States would shoot down its own USA 193 spy satellite. The U.S. lost contact with the satellite only a few hours after its launch in December 2006 by the National Office of Reconnaissance (NRO). A year later, USA 193 entered into a decaying orbit -- moving toward Earth -- and would re-enter the Earth's sometime in March 2008, out of any kind of human control. A missile fired from the U.S.S. Lake Erie hit the satellite at 10:26 p.m. on Feb. 20, successfully destroying the errant bird.

They were test firing a missile which could possibly land off the North coast of Australia. Looking at the world map, that is a very good range.

Actually, South Korea are sh!tting themselves. They wouldn't have the USA otherwise.

I think North Korea would opportunists. Lets say a war started with Iran, I think they would try and knock out US influence in the region just as iran have said they might do in the Middle East. They are good buddies also aren't they?
