North Korea Stirs the Pot with Kim Jong’s New Toy Missiles
We must conclude that Kim Jong-un (# 2) , the revered leader of North Korea, doesn’t want any friends. Or thinks he doesn’t need any. North Korea has once again stirred the pot and raised red flags everywhere with Kim Jong’s new toy missiles. Korean versions of ICBMs have been once again been test-fired, successfully, setting the world on edge. Red flags were raised internationally when Kim Jong announced that long-distance launches on the U.S. territory of Guam were supposed to be his next target, which would precipitate an understandable and in kind response from U.S. President Donald Trump.
Kim Jong’s new toy missiles can hit what? Really…
The latest test was pushed to an altitude of 3700km and at that steep angle and altitude, a range of 1,000 km was achieved. A matter of simple physics, it hasn’t taken the world long to do the rest of the math. Toronto and perhaps half of the continental United States is now within range of Kim Jong’s new toy missiles. How concerned should the world be at this time? Very. Kim has announced that NK is now capable of mounting small nukes on the same missiles. The resulting hit on any population would be disastrous. Is the world suddenly at risk of a nuclear war because of this madman? Not impossible.
Kim Jong II displays instability, a reckless abandonment of responsibility to the world of nations —and disregard for humanity itself.
Have you noticed how Kim claps like an excited child when his soldiers are paraded past, or his toys are launched? **We would not be surprised if Kim would clap equally enthusiastically sitting in a sandbox with Justin in Canada, both dramatically knocking down sand castles, comparing pee-pee’s, and playing with plastic pails, shovels, toys whilst taking grinning ga-ga selfies.
**It seems Kim and Justin have much in common; both display childish, unhappy, gigantic egos, and appear to have equally unstable, unpredictable minds The only differences is that Kimmy has bad hair, a million-man standing army, murders uncooperative relatives, and does not have a sock fetish. Yet, that is. (Oops, yes, we do tend to digress upon occasion. Is it any wonder?)
Kim Jong’s new toy missiles can hit what? Where?
ICBM’s can hit a lot. Far away, too. And do a lot of damage, especially if equipped with nuclear warheads. They can be used to strike almost anywhere on the globe if trajectory is perfected and both power and accuracy issues are resolved. Innocent populations, cities, and infrastructure can all be destroyed at the push of a button by any madman. Try these distances from Pyongyang, North Korea, to North American and major international cities and sites for purposes of comparison:
From: North Korea to Toronto, it is: 10, 288 km.
From North Korea to Vancouver, it is: 7733 km
From N. Korea to *Fort MacMurray it is: 7893 km.
From N. Korea to Calgary it is : 8,225 km.
*Why is Fort MacMurray included in this list? The crippling of major energy sources and self-sufficiency of an ‘enemy’ can be a significantly desirable advantage in times of international warfare.
To The United States
From N. Korea to Honolulu, Hawaii it is 7,386 km
From N. Korea to Chicago, it is 10, 205 km
From N. Korea to Washington, it is 10, 850 km
From N. Korea to New York N. Y. it is 10, 737 km
From N. Korea to Los Angeles it is 9,343 km
From N. Korea to Missouri it is 10, 425 km
From N. Korea to Seoul, South Korea it is 194 km
From N. Korea to London, England it is 8687 km
From N. Korea to Tokyo, Japan, it is : 1280 km
From N. Korea to Moscow, Russia, it is 6400 km
From N. Korea to Paris, France, it is 8728 km
The all-important Chinese Factor
Can Kim Jong’s new toy missiles gob-smack ‘big brother in China’? Yes. At these distances? ICBM’s and even shorter-range missiles with modern electronic guidance can now achieve these puny distances easily:
From N. Korea to Beijing, China, it is 944 km
From N.Korea to Hong Kong, China, it is 2358 km
China is clearly and easily within range of the unstable Kim Jong’s new toy missiles. Traditionally N. Korea’s ally, it seems logical that China, now arguably a major world power, should take responsibility, move in and and immediately remove the unstable Kim’s Jong’s new toy missiles from his sandbox before Kim does something really stupid.
Will China act? Not likely, at least not spank Kim in a public forum. China and N. Korea have been allies. With Kim Jong’s extreme commitment to militarism, his million-man standing army could come in handy in any dust-up with the U.S.A., Russia, or other major world powers. China is unlikely to upset Kim Jong with anything other than ancient words of wisdom: “Keep big NK secrets in fortune cookie and please, no clapping to look like Canada Trudeau-fool”.
China’s response, by the way, was “If Kimmie fires any missiles at Guam that initiate, 14 minutes later, any scuffle with the U.S. of A., he would be on his own. “
Isn’t that priceless fortune-cookie slap-down encouraging?
Only time will tell if Kim Jong’s new toy missiles can or will ever hit anything—or even be used to do anything other than delight fools, help starve more of the N. Korean economy —or perhaps shoot the arrogant Kim Jong II in the foot. How appropriate.
Justin in Canada must be green with envy…
Is that Incoming I hear?
