SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korea has moved what appears to be a mid-range Musudan missile to its east coast, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said on Thursday, quoting multiple government sources privy to intelligence from U.S. and South Korean authorities.

It was not clear if the missile was mounted with a warhead or whether the North was planning to fire it or was just putting it on display as a show of force, one South Korean government source was quoted as saying.

“South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities have obtained indications the North has moved an object that appears to be a mid-range missile to the east coast,” the source said.

The Musudan missile is believed to have a range of 3,000 km (1,875 miles) or more, which would put all of South Korea and Japan in range and possibly also the U.S. territory of Guam in the Pacific Ocean. North Korea is not believed to have tested these mid-range missiles, according to most independent experts

South Korea’s defense ministry declined to comment.

  1. When you launch a missile etc you are suppose to put in a notice to the Maritime & aviation communities.

    There is the US Notice to Mariners & others

    It prevents lawsuits and civilian deaths. I could be wrong but North Korea does non of this thus potentially putting civilian airline passengers & sailors at risk.

    Since they do this, I think the best response is to shoot down their missiles as they reenter the atmosphere.

    It is a two-fer. They get embarrassed & we get to test our missile defense tech.

    Plus we put them on notice that we cannot be threated or pushed over.

  2. LOL

    Someone have put an insane amount of pictures ( of Musudan missiles ) the last day or 2 🙂

    I smell a (Nork)rat.
