North Korea conducted its second missile test within a week, sending a medium-range ballistic missile into the waters off its east coast Sunday. The missile as labeled “combat ready”.

A MISSILE launched by North Korea has been confirmed as powerful enough to strike the US
The ballistic missile launched by North Korea on May 14 successfully re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere, according to analysts, a significant breakthrough for Pyongyang’s missile program.
It was a successful launch and re-entry. A maniac has the power to hit us with a nuclear-capable missile.
North Korea claimed that the weapon reached an altitude of 2,111.5 km (1,312 miles) and travelled a distance of 489 miles before breaching Japan’s Air Defence Identification Zone and splashing down in the Sea of Japan.
The North Koreans were testing the missile re-entry capabilities and it was successful.
The missile was capable of carrying a “large-size, heavy nuclear warhead” to a target on the US mainland and it came through the worst re-entry conditions.
South Korean government sources confirmed the warhead survived 5,000 degrees Celsius and extreme vibration.
They have previously mastered long-range guidance and control capabilities.
The USS Ronald Reagan put to sea on May 16 and the two strike groups are now scheduled to carry out manoeuvres with South Korean warships in the coming weeks.
A maniac has the power to hit us and our allies with a nuclear-capable missile.
We should thank Bill Clinton for this great deal we had to keep North Korea from obtaining a nuclear weapons.
