That is what they want everyone to believe.
The buildup of west coast missile defenses have little to do with the North Korean threats and much more to do with Chinese threats. China has more
than once threatened to nuke the west coast, and specifically threatened to nuke Los Angeles.
Tensions are quietly building between the US and China over a number of issues... Using the empty threats from NK as justification for the buildup is
good cover for the actual reasons for it. North Korea's ability to even reach the west coast isn't close enough yet. The defenses already in place
can handle any real threats from NK. But not from Chinese sub, or air, or sea-surface launched cruise missiles.
No need to be alarmed.
