North Korea claims it can hit US, 'shake the world' with missile after month of increased testing​

North Korea on Tuesday touted its military capabilities, including a missile it claimed could strike the U.S. and "shake the world."

"In today's world where many countries waste time dealing with the United States with submission and blind obedience, there’s only our country on this planet that can shake the world by firing a missile with the U.S. mainland in its range," a statement by the Foreign Ministry said, according to Reuters. "There are more than 200 countries in the world, but only a few have hydrogen bombs, intercontinental ballistic missiles, and hypersonic missiles."

Pyongyang created the Hwasong-15 in 2017 and has not tested it, but the Foreign Ministry cited it as a vital weapon in its arsenal. The Hwasong-15 supposedly is the country’s longest-range intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and is believed to have the range to strike the U.S.

January marked a significant increase in testing activity as Pyongyang launched seven missiles in the first month of this year – more than it tested during all of last year. Those tests included a supposed hypersonic glide vehicle and the intermediate-range ballistic missile Hwasong-12.

Only China and Russia have otherwise completed supposed tests on hypersonic glide vehicles, which would prove difficult for current U.S. systems to track after launch due to its heightened maneuverability at lower altitudes.

The recent tests present a dangerous step in North Korea’s international relations: North Korea self-imposed sanctions after a series of mid-range ballistic missile tests led to direct negotiations between then-President Donald Trump and General Secretary Kim Jong Un.

But Kim has discussed the possibility of backtracking on that moratorium in response to recent U.S. sanctions, which targeted five North Korean officials living outside the country who assisted in the acquisition of materials for and the development of possible hypersonic glide weapons.

The U.S. first hit North Korea with sanctions over weapons tests and nuclear activity in 2006.

A State Department spokesperson called North Korea a threat to international peace and security as well as global nonproliferation efforts.

"The United States has a vital interest in deterring (North Korea), defending against its provocations or uses of force, limiting the reach of its most dangerous weapons programs, and above all keeping the American people, our deployed forces, and our allies safe," the spokesperson told Reuters.

What do you expect when it being reported by the western media, don't read their comment piece, just read what exactly North Korea said.

What will US achieve after occupying poor N.Koreans?In fact,US will have to feed them from her own pocket.
Look what damage US has already done to N.Korea.
Didn't stop them from trying in 1950, they didn't stop before suffering hundreds of thousands casualties.

Maybe my question should be: Why US doesn't have the guts to attack North Korea AGAING?

The risk of even a single nuke hitting a US city is too high a price to pay for attacking some worthless poor hermit state.

Let us not use the phrase "Hermit state" because it is a BBC / CNN invention. I have read of people's delegations from other countries, say Bangladesh, visit North Korea. There is even a "Pyongyang Restaurant" in Dhaka ( @Bilal9 bhai, do give it a try and review here ). Visitors from other countries visit North Korea.

North Korea faces illegal sanctions and is forcibly isolated because of Western governments and not because it itself wants to. A hermit isolates himself or herself but such is not the case with North Korea. The isolation is from the Western Bloc.

During Donald Trump era, usa media was pushing the news of an imminent attack on N Korea, after weeks of propaganda they started to talk about Usa carrier getting close to North Korea to attack, then the silent China spoke very clearly "we will defend N Korea". Suddenly all propaganda went offline.

Power is the only language the US understands.

They will at best sink a couple of South Korean tugboats or naval corvettes at their most provoked self. Let the negotiations for more financial aid begin.

Did Syria, Iraq, Lybia... do anything ?

You seem to be a little confused. We aren't fighting the Syrian army.

The Syrians and Russian's are blowing up all the cities.

We are dealing with ISIS...and so are the Russians.


Iraq invaded Kuwait. There was a UN resolution to get rid of them.


Libya..there was a UN resolution...China abstained...no objection at all...now 10 years later you cry. :no:
"The abstentions included China and Russia"

What did ISS do to US? North Korea threatens you with nuclear weapons, is this more than what ISS did to you. The second time you went for Iraq, Iraq had been out of Kuwait for over a decades, your pretext was Iraq possessed WMD, which turned out a lie, North Korea dose possess WMD, why you don't dare to attack?

I can see you have a very favorable opinion of terrorists groups blowing up policemen and civilians across the world (except China..hmm) so trying to reason with you will be impossible.

ISIS in Iraq

ISIS in Uganda


ISIS in Syria

ISIS in Afghanistan
