download (9)North Korea’s missile program is progressing faster than expected, South Korea’s defense minister said on Tuesday, after the UN Security Council demanded the North halt all nuclear and ballistic missile tests and condemned Sunday’s test-launch.

The reclusive North, which has defied all calls to rein in its weapons programs, even from its lone major ally, China, said the missile test was a legitimate defense against U.S. hostility.

The North has been working on a missile, mounted with a nuclear warhead, capable of striking the U.S. mainland.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has called for an immediate halt to Pyongyang’s provocations and has warned that the “era of strategic patience” with North Korea is over. U.S. Disarmament Ambassador Robert Wood said on Tuesday China’s leverage was key and it could do more.

    If North Korea gets too rambunctious with his missiles pointed toward Russia like the last one, Russia would be justified in taking that little “crazy one” out by any means necessary.

    All I want to know is just how much money barry obama provided them of our tax payer money so as to aid in the development of their nuclear program? Syria received 1.7 BILLION and several key terrorist leaders freed from incarceration!

    The North is a little millennial punk that has never seen the rest of the world. He lives in the little world in his head figuring he can rule it all with a bomb. I think America has taken precautions to have multiple weapons pointed his direction at ready. My concern is when he pulls the trigger will North Korea be the only weapon fling, targeting America. I believe we would need an incident that North Korea presents that would allow us to take out his fire power. Destroying the infrastructure without killing the civilian population would be advantages to us. Be concerned but be vigilant.

      Humble Servant – Nah! Let him attack us or Russia and then let the Russians “Take Him Out” then WE won’t be blamed for it.
