North Korea’s “Dear Leader” knows America loves fireworks. His most spectacular missile tests often come on or near the Fourth of July. This year’s shot had a highly lofted trajectory, meaning it went high enough to prove it could go far enough to reach American territory – including America’s largest state. A macabre July 5 New York Post cover page translated “Crazy Kim’s” message as “KISS YOUR ALASKA GOODBYE.” All opinion articles are the opinion of the author and not necessarily of American Military News. If you are interested in submitting an Op-Ed, please email info@AmericanMilitaryNews.com  Well, I live in Alaska, and I have no immediate intention to kiss my state, any

After North Korea conducted its most successful-ever test of an intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday, the US and South Korea responded the way they always do — with a massive display of force. South Korea displayed a particularly interesting capability with a domestically-designed Hyunmoo-II missile launch that penetrated deep into an underground bunker and vaporized a dummy. After the initial test of the new Hyunmoo variant on June 23, a spokesman for the South Korea’s president said the missile “will be a key component in our kill chain to counter possible North Korean missile attacks.” The launch resembled an operational strike as it was quickly announced, carried out, and devastated its target.

President Donald Trump says there will be war with North Korea over missiles, especially if North Korea continues to aim intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) at the U.S., according to Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham. Graham appeared on NBC’s TODAY Show on Tuesday and said Trump “[…] has told me that. I believe him. If I were China, I would believe him, too, and do something about it.” The president will not allow Kim Jong Un to “hit America” with an ICBM, Graham said. “If there’s going to be a war to stop [Kim Jong Un], it will be over there [on the Korean Peninsula]. If thousands die, they’re going to die over there.

The United States sent two Air Force B-1B bombers over the Korean Peninsula on Saturday in response to North Korea’s second test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) this month. The show of force was in direct response to North Korea’s most recent ICBM test on Friday, which landed in the Sea of Japan but experts say could have reached as far as New York City, based on how long it flew and distance travelled. U.S. Pacific Command tweeted that “bombers maintain 24/7 strategic forward presence in the Pacific, ready to deter North Korea or any other aggressor.” (Twitter) The B-1 bombers took off from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and

The North Korean threat is one of the most pressing military issues today. A week doesn’t go by without news on this ongoing issue that threatens the physical security of our nation. Intelligence agencies confirm that the dictatorial regime governing North Korea has developed the technology to hit Alaska with an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), and it’s on the verge of developing it further within one year. Such a missile could be fitted with a nuclear warhead, exposing America to a very real nuclear threat from a hostile nation. So, how does the US defend against such a threat? ICBM Intercept Test This footage from May shows one answer. The U.S. Missile Defense Agency, in cooperation

North Korea marked the “Day of Victory in the Great Fatherland Liberation War” Thursday, a national holiday that celebrates the end of the Korean war in 1953, which may indicate a missile test is forthcoming as tensions between the US, Pyongyang, and China mount. US intelligence agencies have said for some time that they expect another North Korean missile test soon, as North Korea’s July 4th missile test only demonstrated a limited capability. Since then, CIA director Mike Pompeo has spoken candidly about the possibility that the US may look to take out Kim Jong Un, and China has pressed on with an increasingly assertive military posture towards North Korea.

North Korea’s successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile on July 4 heightened global fears about the deadly threat of nuclear war. But nuclear weapons are not the only weapons of mass destruction that experts think North Korea is developing. They warn that the secretive state also possesses chemical weapon stores and may maintain an ongoing biological weapons program as well. Biological weapons are particularly scary, since they could ignite a global disease pandemic as devastating as nuclear war — a threat Bill Gates wrote about in an op-ed for Business Insider in February. The status and capabilities of North Korea’s biological weapons program are mysterious, Sonia Ben Ouagrham-Gormley, an associate professor at George Mason University
