the north face boys Korea believed to be moving intercontinental missile
All eyes have been on North Korea following the country’s sixth test of a nuclear weapon Sunday. Seismological data indicated the weapon was the most powerful ever detonated by the rogue nation, nuclear experts said.
North Korean state media claimed it detonated a hydrogen bomb, also known as a thermonuclear weapon, which could be fitted atop a long range missile capable of striking the United States.
Weapons experts say it’s almost impossible to verify if the warhead and missile could be successfully paired unless North Korea were to actually fire a nuclear tipped ICBM.
The country has test fired a number of missiles this summer, including two long range ones in July and an intermediate range one in August that overflew the Japanese island of Hokkaido.
The South Korean Navy announced Tuesday it conducted live fire drills off the east coast of the Korean Peninsula to check its “immediate operational readiness.”
“Wherever it is, whether on or under water, if North Korea provokes, we will immediately destroy and bury them at sea,” the Navy said in a statement
Haley says the United States will circulate a draft resolution this week pushing further sanctions against North Korea.
“I think that North Korea basically has slapped everyone in the face in the international community that has asked them to stop,” Haley said. She added that she was aiming to put the resolution to a vote next Monday.
