 Kim Jong Un Has A Special Message For The U.S After Successful North Korean Missile Test

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is a dangerous man, and on July 4th launched a successful intercontinental missile that has capabilities of reaching as far as Alaska. After the launch, the dictator had a message to send to the United States.

According to The Blaze:

This missile test was hailed as a direct response to President Donald Trump, who said that a North Korean missile reaching American soil “won’t happen.”

“American bastards would be not very happy with this gift sent on the July 4 anniversary,” Kim reportedly said.

Kim laughed and “added that we should send them gifts once in a while to help break their boredom,” according to KCNA, the Telegraph reported.

The missile was said to be a Hwasong-14, capable of escaping and re-entering Earth’s atmosphere. KCNA reported that Kim inspected the missile himself and “expressed satisfaction, saying it looked as handsome as a good-looking boy and was well made.”

The missile reportedly traveled 580 miles for 39 minutes and reached an altitude of 2,802 km. This has “all the technological requirements including heat resistance and structural stability of the re-entry nose cone.”

“That’s it. It’s an ICBM,” tweeted arms control specialist Jeffrey Lewis, commenting on the missile’s achieved altitude. “An ICBM that can hit Anchorage not San Francisco, but still,” Lewis added.

“That range would not be enough to reach the lower 48 states or the large islands of Hawaii, but would allow it to reach all of Alaska,” David Wright, co-director of the Global Security Program, said, noting that the missiles standard flight range is roughly 6,700 km.

The Japanese government reports that the missile landed in Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone, noting a clear violation of U.N. resolutions.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the tests “represents a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world,” and added that the U.S. “will never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea.”

In late June, national security adviser H.R. McMaster said that the White House was developing new strategies to deal with North Korea, including military options. As the White House makes these plans, the U.S. military has been building its forces in the Korean peninsula, as well as putting on displays of strength, including flying two supersonic bombers over the Korean peninsula.

According to the New York Times, Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, the top U.S. general in South Korea, said that the only thing stopping war between U.S./South Korean joint forces and North Korea is “self-restraint.” The Wall Street Journal reported that Brooks’ statement was the U.S. telling “North Korea it is prepared to go to war.”

North Korea has also been accused of using drones to spy on South Korea and American anti-missile defense. A downed drone was discovered in a remote area of South Korea. At this rate, something will need to be done about North Korea as the country continues to threaten South Korea and America with war.
