The mainstream media and their stable of “experts” consistently underestimate North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapon capabilities. The gap between how the media report on the North Korean nuclear missile threat and the reality of the threat has become so wide as to be dangerous.


In 2008, the CIA’s top East Asia analyst publicly stated that North Korea had successfully miniaturized nuclear warheads for delivery on its Nodong medium-range missile. This capability indicates that the Nodong is able to strike South Korea and Japan, or, if launched off a freighter, even the United States.

In 2009, European intelligence agencies at NATO headquarters also told the media that North Korea’s Nodong missiles were armed with nuclear warheads.

In 2011, the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Lt. General Ronald Burgess, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that North Korea has weaponized its nuclear devices into warheads for arming ballistic missiles.


North Korea achieved a long-range missile capability to strike the U.S. at least as early as 2012, according to testimony of administration officials before Congress. North Korea’s accomplishment occurred a bare two years outside of the fifteen-year “safe” window promised by the CIA in 1995.


On April 7, 2015, at a Pentagon press conference, Admiral William Gortney, Commander of North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD), responsible for protecting the U.S. from long-range missiles, warned that the intelligence community assesses North Korea’s KN-08 mobile ICBM could strike the U.S. with a nuclear warhead.

Given this overwhelming evidence of North Korea’s ability to strike the U.S., how strange that network and cable television and most major news outlets have never informed the American public that North Korea already has nuclear-armed missiles that can strike the United States.

The DoD report — finally released on February 12, 2016 — acknowledges that North Korea does indeed have a mobile ICBM: the KN-08. It is armed with a nuclear warhead that “likely would be capable” of striking the U.S. mainland, but “current reliability as a weapon system would be low” because the KN-08 has not been flight-tested.

The earlier DoD report from 2015 had also downplayed the North Korean nuclear missile threat by comforting readers that, “The pace of its progress will also depend, in part, on how much aid it can acquire from other countries.” Yet the DoD report is replete with evidence that North Korea is in fact receiving copious aid from Russia and China — including Golf-class ballistic missile submarines and an SS-N-6 submarine-launched ballistic missile from Russia.

With such blatant evidence proving contrary to what mainstream media reports, makes one wonder, are they “underestimating” or are they telling the American public what they are told to report?

All one has to do is take the time to dig through the DoD reports on North Korea and the truth is revealed, it is tedious and extremely mind-numbing, but a person simply cannot argue with the blunt truth.

On Friday, North Korea launched its missile into a very high arc, and Japan’s NHK reported it may have landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone. But if the missile had been pointed in a 45 degree angle, it could have traveled much farther.

Physics doesn’t lie, an object achieves max distance if launched at a 45 degree angle, with that in mind:

A projectile that achieves 2,314 miles altitude on a nearly vertical path (NK’s test launch trajectory) can achieve, at an optimal launch trajectory (45 deg), a maximum fight distance of about 6,500 miles.

Flight distances from Pyongyang to:

USA – NAS – Guam/Anderson AFB – Guam – 2114 miles

USA – Alaska – Anchorage – 3737 miles

USA – Hawaii – Honolulu – 4600 miles

USA – California – Los Angeles – 5952 miles

USA – New York – New York – 6804 miles

USA – District of Columbia – Washington DC – 6878 miles

Given the information that’s been reported so far, Jeffrey Lewis, the publisher of Arms Control Wonk, estimated that the missile could have a range of 6,200 miles. That reach would put almost all of the continental US in range.

People will still argue and live in denial, regardless of facts and physics, however, I have provided the blunt truth.  These so called “experts” believe that the American public will not dig for truth nor look at simple physics to shatter their lies.
