Of course, at the time several countries had already reason to believe, and proof, that such weapons existed within Korean borders, but this was the first public announcement, made in the second year of their war on the United States of America. An article published yesterday by Fox News states that every day, the entire country works feverishly toward the finish line – achieving the advancement in “rocket power” that their developers need to give their explosive missiles enough of a boost to cross the Pacific. So, for about ten years, North Korea has worked to find the “secret ingredient” which, put with their nukes, would make a deadly missile, with the hopes of obliterating the United States of America. Nice.
Let’s Be Prepared: If Their Technology Advances, Could We React?
- The bomb is so close to the ground when it detonates after being intercepted that a huge portion of the western U.S. is damaged.
- The missile isn’t low enough to cause physical damage, but is low enough when it explodes that the EMP stops every electronic or circuit from ever working again. Judy Haar writes an excellent article about the particulars of an electromagnetic pulse or EMP and how it works.
