“The U.S. is wholly to blame for pushing North Korea to have developed an ICBM as it has desperately resorted to anachronistic policy hostile toward North Korea for decades to encroach upon its sovereignty and vital rights,” ~DPRK Foreign Ministry

 

Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Sunday that North Korea had demonstrated a “qualitative” improvement in its nuclear and missile capabilities after an unprecedented level of tests last year.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Sunday that North Korea’s nuclear weapons capabilities and ballistic missile defense programs constituted a “serious threat” to the United States and that it was prepared to shoot down a North Korean missile launch or test.

“We only would shoot them down … if it was threatening, that is, if it were coming toward our territory or the territory of our friends and allies,” ~ Defense Secretary Ash Carter

 

North Korea has been testing rocket engines and heat shields for an ICBM while developing the technology to guide a missile after re-entry into the atmosphere following liftoff, experts have said.

Once fully developed, a North Korean ICBM could threaten the continental United States, about 5,500 miles away. ICBMs have a minimum range of about 3,400 miles, but some are designed to travel 6,200 miles or farther.

Obama’s failed policy, “strategic patience,” has been a complete disaster and allowed the DPRK to do as they please.

The policy was built around placing sanctions and harsh words towards North Korea and ruling out talks or contacts until North Korea made the first move toward denuclearization.

So essentially, Obama gave Kim Jong Un exactly what he wanted and publicly placing failed sanctions against North Korea.

President Elect Trump is either being fed bad intel or does not take the threat serious enough. Trump responded with a tweet two days later, saying the possibility of the North developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching the U.S. “won’t happen!”

Mr. President, with all due respect, North Korea is ready and very willing to confront the U.S. with Nuclear capabilities.  Do not make the same mistakes Obama did for 8 years.

Asked for comment Sunday, the White House referred to comments last week in which White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the U.S. military believed it could protect against the threat emanating from North Korea.

North Korea has been under U.N. sanctions since 2006 over its nuclear and ballistic missile tests. The sanctions were tightened last month after Pyongyang conducted its fifth and largest nuclear test on Sept. 9.
