The second-highest ranking military officer in the U.S. told Congress on Tuesday that while North Korea “clearly” has missiles with the capability to reach the United States, it does not have the capacity to strike accurately or successfully.

Take it with a grain of salt…

On July 4, North Korea successfully tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which traveled into a high-altitude trajectory of 1,730 miles and flew horizontally about 575 miles into the Sea of Japan, Military.com reports.

“I … am not sanguine that the test on the Fourth of July demonstrates that they have the capacity to strike the United States with any degree of accuracy or reasonable confidence of success,” Gen. Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“On range, they clearly have the capability,” he added.

The test did demonstrate that this new missile — if fired at the proper trajectory — was capable of reaching Alaska.

“Testing an ICBM represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement following the test earlier this month.

As with some previous missile tests, the ICBM was fired via a mobile-launcher, making it harder for U.S. intelligence to track the movement of North Korea’s weapons, something Selva said concerned him.

“I’m reasonably confident in the ability of our intelligence community to monitor the testing but not the deployment of these missile systems,” he said. “Kim Jong-un and his forces are very good at camouflage, concealment and deception.”

Despite Tillerson’s assertion that the ICBM test represented an “escalation of the threat” to the U.S., the Trump administration has insisted it will use diplomacy first in dealing with this latest provocation.

If the military is telling the truth to the American public, which some of us know that politics and brass go hand-in-hand, they admit North Korea is capable of hitting U.S. soil.

If they launch an ICBM with a warhead, pinpoint accuracy really isn’t needed, unless they are attempting to hit a specific target.  Otherwise, the warhead will do its job and cause some FUBAR in the vicinity it hits.

Lets face it, our government cannot be 100% open with the public because the public could overreact and cause panic.

God Bless.
