New satellite images show North Korea is developing a submarine capable of launching long-range ballistic missiles.
Between North Korea and Russia, people are starting to accept the reality that a nuclear exchange is once again possible...if not likely. If Putin or Kim was looking for some sort of strategic advantage, they've basically given it away already by so carefully establishing themselves as threats. The targeting has been dialed in to US nuclear assets, you can be sure of that.
seriously? They can't even get a orbital launch from a perfectly good platform site... they can't get a potentially massively heavy nuclear weapon that will go off properly underground (1 kiloton yield after claiming 4 kilotons minimum to Chinese and Russian embassies a hour before)... and now they are claiming to have a ballistic missile sub that can not only do a trans-orbital launch, but can also carry a nuclear weapon
North Korea overplayed their hand and they have to live with not being taken seriously anymore because no one can rely on them for anything good or bad. As Obama said the era where they could "exact concessions" through threats is over.
Okay we all know this will likely fail. But if it does work well see you in the draft
The US needs this boogeyman.
