Yes, and this one had the longest possible range of any of their launches. They postulate that it can even hit cities on the east coast of the US. That is a huge gain. Now, that depends on the size of the warhead and they may not even have the capability of miniaturizing a warhead so it can fit on this missile… but they may and we have to consider this now.

If their missile can hit some of our major cities then we should be worried as the loose nut in charge of North Korea will not hesitate to attack us.
I'm reading where they are threatening to attack Guam, which is a major base of ours in the Pacific. Their missiles definitely have the range to hit Guam, I don't know if they are accurate enough though.
I still say send in all the special forces we have. The mission is to kill the dictator. We might as well send in Chuck Norris. He could do it by himself *smile*. Not that this is a laughing matter.

We can not send in the special forces in something like this. We have to do something else in a way that we can safely remove the head of the snake. It is not something that will be very easy for anyone.
What makes NK's military formidable is their kamikaze type thinking. They will die before surrendering so long as their god-leader tells them to do it.

Yes they are fanatics like that and that will make it harder to do anything or even infiltrate them to the point you get close enough to cut the head off the snake.
