North Korea’s Kim Jong Un having a good time building and testing the nukes the Clinton administration made possible.

Take them seriously. The next president will be the one to deal with this.

Via The Hill.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday claimed the U.S. mainland is now within range of his country’s nuclear weapons, according to a report from Public Radio International (PRI).

The statement comes after North Korea successfully tested its first submarine-launched missile.

But a former U.S. nuclear negotiator with North Korea, Joel Wit, told PRI the U.S. is not in danger.

“We’re not within striking range of their nuclear weapons,” he said.
Wit said there is ground for alarm over North Korea’s nuclear development, however.

“This is just one more step in terms of steady progress that North Korea is making in building nuclear weapons and building missiles to deliver them.”

He said the larger worry should be North Korea’s current Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) project.

“I’m concerned, and I think it should be ongoing concern for everyone,” he said. “If they get that thing [ICBM] working then they will be able to reach the United States, and that, of course, is a serious concern for all of us.”

As of today, North Korea does not possess the ability to miniaturize their nuclear weapons into a small warhead or launch their missiles beyond a range of 600 miles the report added.

    Obama has substituted payoffs for deterrence, and now the world is reaping the fruits of his suicidal idiocy. I take some comfort in knowing that in this case, South Korea and Japan are closer to the action, so if anything starts, they’ll inevitably be pulled in. They’ll be fighting for their lives, so they’ll do what needs to be done. This is a strange reversal; it wasn’t long ago that our adversaries were afraid to attack our allies because they knew it would bring an American reprisal. Things change.

    N. Korea may have a missile that could reach Alaska, but a long way from reaching the lower 48. Even to Alaska, plenty of time to take down with BMD.
