JUST IN: NK Says They’re “Not Far Away” from Doing the 1 Thing the World Fears

A story from North Korea’s state media said the nation is “not far away” from testing an ICBM, Bloomberg reported Saturday.

Such a missile would be capable of hitting the U.S. mainland, making it the first missile that could reach the United States — and much of the rest of the world — from the belligerent pariah state.

“U.S. President Donald Trump has said the world will never see North Korea reach the final stage of developing nuclear weapons that could reach the U.S., but recent strategic weapon tests have proved the country is ‘not far away’ from testing an ICBM,” a report from the Korean Central News Agency said.

This means, according to state media, that America’s anti-North Korean policies coming to an end could be a “near reality.”

While this is pretty doubtful, it’s rather clear that the ability to fire a missile that could reliably reach the United States would be a huge step forward for the North Korean military.

Park Jiyoung, a nuclear engineer who is a senior fellow with The Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul, South Korea, said such a test could take place in just a few months, with completion of the ICBM coming in a year.

“The North has already conducted a number of experiments to test various elements of the missile,” Park said. “It would now want to test all the elements put together.”

Of course, North Korean propaganda can often be taken with a grain of salt, but the fact is that Kim Jong Un’s regime is moving closer and closer to being able to attack the United States of America.

The Trump administration desperately needs to do something to stop North Korea’s missile testing before it’s too late. As Reuters reported last week, the country has even begun testing surface-to-ship missiles, firing several last week. The rogue state should not be allowed to hold the world at the brink of war with its behavior. It’s time to take action.
