    North Korea Rebukes Russia’s Denial of Its ICBM Launch Russia called North Korea’s missile fired on July 4 an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) rather than an ICBM By Charlotte Gao August 11, 2017 As The Diplomat asked earlier: why is Russia denying that North Korea successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on July 4, 2017? North Korea is also asking the same question, and is apparently furious about Russia’s denial. On July 4, North Korea successfully flew an ICBM, the Hwasong-14. The ICBM launch was acknowledged around the world including United States, Japan, and South Korea — but not...

    Pakistan has built a 'hardened, secure, underground' complex in a remote mountainous region in the restive Balochistan province that could serve as a storage site for nuclear warheads, an American think tank said on Wednesday. The Institute for Science and International Security, a nonprofit and non-governmental institution, said its observation is based on satellite imagery and investigation. It said in a report that the underground complex in the southwestern province 'could serve as a ballistic missile and nuclear warhead storage site'. The purpose of the complex is not yet available publicly. But, the report authored by David Albright, Sarah Burkhard,...

    North Korea’s Next Missile Test Could be Launched From a Submarine By Conor Gaffey On 7/20/17 at 3:25 AM North Korea may be preparing for another missile launch aimed at the United States. Kim Jong Un’s regime conducted its first successful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test on July 4—Independence Day in the U.S.—with some experts speculating that the missile could reach the U.S. states of Alaska and Hawaii, or even the Pacific Northwest. And now the totalitarian regime appears to be preparing for submarine-based missile launches in the future. Two U.S. defense officials told CNN on Thursday that a North...

Ed Lasky responds: Yeah.. because all the previous presidents weren't naive and pathetic. Obama, the Nobel Peace Prize winner? Carter, Clinton, two Bushes?

    President Donald Trump called an emergency meeting on the Fourth of July to formulate a 'measured response' to North Korea's first intercontinental ballistic missile test, amid fears it could reach as far as Alaska. North Korea declared Tuesday that it had finally achieved its dream of building an intercontinental ballistic missile, saying it would 'fundamentally put an end to the US nuclear war threat and blackmail'. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was with an intercontinental ballistic missile.

    North Korea fired what appeared to be several land-to-ship missiles off its east coast on Thursday, South Korea's military said, the latest in a fast-paced series of missile tests defying world pressure to rein in its weapons program. The launches come less than a week after the United Nations Security Council passed fresh sanctions on the reclusive state, which said it would continued to pursue its nuclear and missile program without delay. The warship-killing cruise missiles were launched Thursday morning from the North Korean coastal city of Wonsan and flew about 200km, South Korea's Office of Joint Chiefs of Staff...

    The Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system destroyed a mock intercontinental ballistic missile over the Pacific last Tuesday.  The test revealed the efficacy of a new hit-to-kill vehicle meant to protect the United States against ballistic missile threats. The interception of the mock ICBM fired from Reagan Test Site on Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands validated the performance of the GMD interceptor missile which was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.  The test was necessary to move forward with US plans to add eight more interceptors to the inventory by the end of 2017, bringing the total to...
