North Korea Claims That It’s Obtained Nuclear Weapons That Can Nuke US Mainland
North Korea is thrilled to celebrate its first successful test of a submarine-launched missile. Kim Jong Un says the U.S. mainland is now within striking range of his nuclear weapons.
Before you start making plans to purchase a bomb shelter, let’s hear what former U.S nuclear negotiator has to say.
“Because — despite this success — we’re not within striking range of their nuclear weapons.” – Joel Wit
Kim Jong Un is known to make empty threats, there’s no evidence North Korea has yet been able to miniaturize its nuclear weapons to fit into a warhead. Their missile only appears to have a range of about 600 miles.
However, there is some cause for concern, “because this is just one more step in terms of steady progress that North Korea is making in building nuclear weapons and building missiles to deliver them.”
“I’m concerned, and I think it should be ongoing concern for everyone.” The biggest concern, says Wit, is that North Korea is working to develop a working Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, or ICBM. “If they get that thing working then they will be able to reach the United States, and that, of course, is a serious concern for all of us.”
We pray God keeps humanity safe from terror like this ever striking.
