UPDATE: WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. military said on Thursday that it had detected the launch of a single North Korean intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) that flew over northern Japan before landing in the Pacific Ocean.

The missile did not pose a threat to North America or the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, Commander Dave Benham, a spokesman for U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement, citing an initial assessment.

Benham said the launch was detected at 11:57 a.m. Hawaii time (5:17 p.m. EDT/2117 GMT) and the missile had been launched from Sunan in Pyongyang, North Korea.

  1. If the US backs down and lets Kim keep his nukes every little tin pot dictator in the world will atart building or buying nuclear weapons. The Propaganda Media talking heads never take this into consideration when they talk about what our option are. We either take out North Korea now when the causalities will be horrific or wait several years until Iran as well as Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and many others build or buy nuclear weapons for self defense or agression and then when the war starts the causalities will be several orders of magnitude higher.

    Do you want hundreds of thousands of causalities? Or do you want what will probably be hundreds of millions of causalities?
