U.S. Defense officials alarmed by North Korea missile launch, this could be bad for us

Please share and comment if you want Trump to take action against North Korea.

According to two U.S. defense officials, the latest missile test by North Korea has the possible potential of being used against the United States.

cnn.com reports: Two US defense officials told CNN Monday that the rocket engine North Korea tested Sunday could possibly be used in an eventual intercontinental ballistic missile.


The officials added that it is still not clear whether the engine would require some adjustment to be used in an ICBM, if it can indeed be used that way at all, noting that the Pentagon is still analyzing the test.

Possession of an intercontinental ballistic missile could allow North Korea to threaten the continental United States. ICBM technology is considered difficult to develop, with advanced rocket design being a necessary step.

The engine had been camouflaged under netting prior to the test. There is a major effort underway to keep track of North Korean mobile launchers.
