According to a recent report from Reuters: "North Korea conducted at least one engine test for the KN-08 missile in late March or early April ...marking the latest in a series of tests for a missile believed to have a range of more than 10,000 km (6,000 miles)"
In addition, Reuters reports that "North Korea is believed to be developing on a nuclear weapon and the technology to miniaturize a warhead to mount it on a long-range missile."
Do these developments represent an eventual existential threat to the United States?
Any nuclear bomb is a threat. If a nuclear bomb can reach America, it's a greater threat. If a nuclear bomb can reach America, and it's controlled by a nut, it's a serious threat. That's why we need to do more about Iran. We can't allow another nut to have nuclear bombs.

North Korea recently tested their third nuclear missile, bringing them a step closer to their goal of having missiles that can reach the U.S. In light of this, N. Korea also "vowed" to end the cease-fire that ended the Korean War in 1953 (AP News). The claim for doing this is...

So now that U. N. Security Council wants nothing to do with this man. North Korea has been thrown back into Washington's lap. Well, that's just great. For all those who don't live in this country, it might surprise you when I say, "America wants nothing to do with this guy." ...
