As reported by Zero Hedge, North Korea now states:
...we have demonstrated our ability to fire our intercontinental ballistic rocket at any time and place and that the entire U.S. territory is within our shooting range.
...Melissa Hanham, a researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in California, confirmed the findings saying that the test showed North Korea is now capable of hitting U.S. cities such as Denver or Chicago.
Essentially, Kim Jong-Un just declared, "All your base are belong to us."
Washington D.C. appears to be just out of range for the moment, as the missiles fly over the North Pole and enter the atmosphere over the Northwest portion of the United States. This means Miami is the farthest away from North Korea's reach. Houston, New Orleans and other Southern cities are also on the extreme edge of potential range.
In a show of force, the United States Air Force is currently running supersonic bomber drills over North Korea, and President Trump is warning that world that the United States can "no longer allow" North Korea to continue threatening the world with nuclear missile launches that might set off World War III.
Kim Jong-Un is known to already possess an estimated two dozen nuclear warheads, and Natural News has previously explained why any attack on the United States by North Korea could trigger a devastating implosion of the U.S. economy. The miniaturization process to fit nuclear warheads onto missiles is child's play for any nation that already possess nuclear capability. This means North Korea almost certainly has ICBMs right now that can deliver nuclear strikes to major U.S. cities, including Chicago, Seattle, Denver, Los Angeles, Phoenix and so on. It is even conceivable that North Korea could launch a volley of missiles to strike multiple cities at the same time.
North Korea's strike options also include EMP weapons which could indirectly kill up to 90% of all Americans by destroying the power grid, thrusting the United States into the 18th century in terms of technology, almost instantly collapsing the food supply, money system, water supply, medical logistics, police forces and just about everything else.
If you are not yet prepping for the possibility of a nuclear event on U.S. soil, you are living in denial.
Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
