North Korea Threatens New York.


The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has suggested that it would be testing a missile capable of hitting New York. This is coming months after President Donald Trump said: “It won’t happen”.

Trump’s tweet was a reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s announcement earlier this year that the country was in the final stages of developing an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

North Koreas state newspaper “Rodong Sinmum” in a statement said  “The DPRK is about 10,400km [6,462 miles] far away from New York. But this is just not a long distance for its strike today”.

Jeffrey Lewis, an American expert on Kim’s Jong-un’s military, believes the only hurdle left is to develop a warhead capable of handling the extreme heat encountered during re-entry into our atmosphere.

Mr. Lewis said: “North Korea almost certainly has a compact fission warhead capable of fitting on a future ICBM”.

North Korea maintains that its pursuit of nuclear weapons is solely a means of defending itself from foreign powers such as the United States Of America.
