Earlier this week, we saw an encouraging sign that China is willing to at least help in the effort to get North Korea to settle down with the whole nuclear program thing.
However, North Korea is very much still a major threat to our allies in Asia.
Not only that, it looks like they are making some serious strides in their ability to attack us directly.
Check out this recent report…
From Washington Free Beacon:
North Korea could soon have the capacity to launch an attack on Hawaii that would devastate America’s Pacific military bases, accelerating the need for the United States to upgrade missile defenses in the area.
The United States today relies on ground-based ballistic missile interceptors deployed in California and Alaska to protect Hawaii, but these defenses would do little to guard U.S. territory in the Pacific against a North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which officials believe is nearing completion.
Doesn’t sound like we are prepared for a potential attack either.
Trump has shown signs he is taking the threat seriously and this report will likely solidify that.
