Posted on 10/06/2017 5:10:17 PM PDT by Enlightened1
North Korea claims it has a missile that could reach the West Coast of the United States and plans to test it in the very near future, according to Russian lawmakers who visited the reclusive nation this week.
“They are preparing for new tests of a long-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the West Coast of the United States,” Anton Morozov, a member of the Russian Duma’s international affairs committee, told the RIA news agency, Reuters reports.
“In general, [North Korea’s] mood is rather belligerent,” Morozov added. “The situation, of course, demands the swiftest intervention of all interested states, particularly those represented in the region, in order to prevent wide-scale military action.”
The CIA, South Korea and Japan have all speculated North Korea might conduct a nuclear test or missile launch on or around October 10—the anniversary of the establishment of the North Korean Communist Party. North Korea conducted its first ever nuclear test on October 9, 2006.
North Korea had carried out a series of missile tests over the course of the past year and its sixth nuclear test in early September, which has put the U.S. on high alert.
Some believe North Korea already has an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of striking targets on the U.S. mainland. Others question whether Pyongyang has actually developed the technology that would allow an ICBM armed with a nuclear weapon to successfully reach its intended destination.

I imagine this next missile test will be fired between now and then.
Furthermore, I read an article about 2 hours ago that North Korea accused the U.S. of attempting to assassinate their Dictator last May.
This is probably the calm before the storm that President Trump was ominous telling us yesterday.
Here is the other article.
I think I read where the CIA expects something to happen on Columbus Day which is Monday.

BFD - lots of countries have nukes
ignore the Norks - they are only trolling us.
Did Russia remove all it’s markings before it gave it to NK ?
I dont think the Russsians did it.
Thats what Im thinking too? Perhaps one week at the most?
Time will tell.
“Governor Jerry Brown? Call from L’il Kim in North Korea. Please pick up the White Courtesy Phone in your Sanctuary State Lobby!” ;)
“ignore the Norks “
I don’t think you realize that Obama is no longer the president.
After Brown’s asinine sanctuary stunt .... LET THEM SHOOT THE DAMNED THING !
It is observed on Monday so folks have 3-day weekend. Actually it is officially October 12.
And then check out:
Think China, Think Loral, Think Clinton. Iran is just a benevolent customer.
China enables Korea to do its out of bounds testing while trying to give the impression that Korea is rogue. It serves to be the boogie man.
How do we know this?
Clintons needed cash. Remember the illegal campaign cash and Charlie Trie? The Buddhists monks with a vow of poverty giving millions? But still they needed more. Loral space systems were all of a sudden able to sell their missile guidance systems components to China.
Fast forward and people are asking why we are not shooting down the Korean test missiles. Why? Because we needed to know what was in them. Let it splash down, use our subs to retrieve the remains, do our forensics and what do we find? Loral missile guidance parts.
Iran is the shiny little object off in the corner that is about to be snuffed out. Trump nixes the Iran Deal. Iran challenges our Navy again in the Straights in an effort to humiliate the US, again. But a funny thing happens on the way as they are the ones are humiliated in a very big way. They react typically and launch against Israel, we are prepared and take them out on the ascent and in such the retaliation against their nuke and missile programs is launched all at once.
The end result, the ethnic Persians take back control of their heritage from the Arab invaders and the end starts for not only the 12th Imam but also for Islamism’s reign of terror.
As Trump stated it’s the calm before the storm...
The Nork Pig can squeeeeel at the lift off of his phalic projection of manhood. I will sit back, listen to my music from my Harmen Karden and sip some Crown Royal. No need to worry, it is the calm before the storm.
Sounds like a good plan...
Well that will whittle down some of California’s 55 electoral votes.
Okay! they may be able to reach the west coast. So we may still have time to negotiate with them as to what the targets will be. My vote is San Francisco with Sacramento a very close second. Los Angeles tops out the top three so long as they can guarantee to not impact San Diego (Orange County) or Santa Barbara. After that Seattle and Portland round out the list.
