SEOUL—For decades, the U.S. kept tight limits on how far and how potent South Korea’s ballistic missiles could be, reflecting concerns that Seoul might unilaterally raise tensions with nearby China, North Korea and Russia.

But last month, the Biden administration removed the final limits on Seoul’s missile program, abolishing what had been a roughly 500-mile cap on South Korea’s ballistic-missile range. It is a key change: Seoul’s missiles, in theory, can now fly far enough to strike Beijing, Moscow or anywhere else.

Haha, South Korea can make missile to reach Beijing, but they will never target Beijing. South Korea will only dare to aim their missiles at Japan and Russia. And the US now depends on South Korea for a number of key technologies.

But North Korea current intercontinental missiles, which are more than capable to destroy Washington DC within minutes, are now aiming at Washington and New York, I do believe.

South Korea dares not launch a missile to North Korea. If a war breaks out between US and China, South Korea will be the first place that suffers intense attacks from China and North Korea.

He just doesn't understand the South Koreans. As if they have a grudge against the Chinese lol.
When US recently begged Vietnam for a military base with missiles pointing at China, Vietnamese told them to take a hike.
