Fears of a U.S., North Korea Nuclear Conflict Rises

President Donald Trump threatened North Korea with “fire and fury” and
 designated North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism over North Korean leader Kim Jong-un continual threat to drop a bomb over the Pacific Ocean.


Trump on November 11 during his 12-day tour of Asia, addressed U.S. troops at a military base and stressed that “no dictator should underestimate U.S. resolve in a clear shot at Kim.
While Cuban President Raul Castro met with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong to show solidarity with the impoverished nation amid fears of a nuclear conflict.
Information available from North Koreans missile tests point to the fact that any missile launched from that country can easily reach the United States west coast and a number of US major cities.
In total, North Korea is believed to have around 1,000 ballistic missiles, under the control of the Strategic Rocket Forces, based in the South Pyongyang province, outside Pyongyang, though the majority of these are shorter-range weapons - with ranges of between 30 miles and 300 miles - aimed at targets in South Korea. That country's regime in recent years has invested heavily in developing advanced new missiles from its early missiles copies of Russian Scud-class.

As the leaders of the U.S. and North Korea has engaged in an increasingly fiery rhetoric towards one another, amid heightened tensions over North Korean missile launches over Japan and nuclear tests the potential for nuclear conflict has increased over the past few months, according to retired Admiral Mike Mullen former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Speaking in an interview with ABC’s on Sunday this Week, has admitted to the probability of nuclear weapons use. The unpredictability of the isolated nation demonstrating the increasing likelihood of Kim John Un using nuclear weapons has risen, he said.
The Korean People's Army missile arsenal is a branch of its armed forces and operates six primary fixed launch sites with mobile tractor-erector-launcher units that are able to travel around the country and launch missiles, making them more difficult to track.
If North Korea launches a missile, officials estimate it could take about 20 minutes to reach Hawaii. It would take about five minutes for the U.S. to determine where it’s going, which would leave about 12 to 15 minutes to warn the public.
