Provocation: North Korea Moves Missile With ‘Considerable Range’ To Its East Coast, US ‘Poised To Respond’ At Border


Matthew 24:6, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”

Fox News – “South Korea says North Korea has moved a missile with ‘considerable range’ to its east coast after an unnamed spokesman for the North Korean army warned the U.S. Wednesday that its military has been cleared to wage an attack using ‘smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear’ weapons.

South Korea’s defense minister said Thursday the missile moved is not capable of hitting the United States.

Kim Kwan-jin dismissed reports in Japanese and South Korean media that the missile could be a KN-08, which is believed to be a long-range missile that if operable could hit the United States.

Kim told lawmakers at a hearing that the missile’s range is considerable but not far enough to hit the U.S. mainland. He said he did not know the reasons behind the missile movement, saying it ‘could be for testing or drills.’

The range he described could refer to a mobile North Korean missile known as the Musudan, which has a range of 1,800 miles. That would make Japan and South Korea potential targets, but little is known about the missile’s accuracy.

U.S. Troops Stand ‘Poised to Respond’ at North Korea Border – “The United States says it stands ‘poised to respond’ at the border of North and South Korea, where U.S. troops are on high alert. ‘They have ratcheted up their bellicose, dangerous rhetoric and some of the actions they’ve taken over the last few weeks present a real and clear danger,’ Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said. The U.S. is sending a missile battery to Guam and two guided missile destroyers are on the border of South Korea, joining Navy warships already poised to shoot down an incoming missile. U.S. warplanes, including fighter jets, U-2 spy planes and an A-10 attack jet, are in the South Korean skies today as part of a massive military exercise overseen by the U.S. lieutenant general who brought in F-22 stealth fighters as well. They’d be first into the North if war broke out.” Read more.
