North Korea Planning To Test Fire Missile Capable Of Reaching U.S. West Coast; Stocks Slide

Tyler Durden's picture

Is this the stormy weather that Donald Trump was referring to yesterday?

Russian news agency Sputnik reports, that according to a Russian lawmaker, who has just returned from North Korea, Pyongyang is ready to test a missile capable of reaching the US western coast.

"They are preparing for a new test of a longer-range missile. They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the western coast of the United States," Morozov said.

"In the near future, they are going to carry out, as far as we understand, yet another launch of a missile, but this time with a longer range," the lawmaker said, adding that the general mood in Pyongyang is "rather belligerent."

Sputnik adds that "Pyongyang is planning to test-fire a missile that is capable of reaching the western coast of the US, Anton Morozov, a member of the Russian State Duma Committee on International Affairs told RIA Novosoti."

"They [North Korea] are preparing to launch a new high range missile. They even gave us calculations, showing that the missile was capable of reachen the western coast of the US," Morozov said.


The Russian delegation was on an official visit in the North Korean capital on October 2-6, the Russian embassy in North Korea said earlier. The lawmakers discussed bilateral cooperation with the Russian ambassador to North Korea.

The market reaction upon hearing the news has been quite negative, with a trapdoor opening below the S&P as safe-haven bonds are bid.

While gold spiked higher (as USDJPY tumbled back below 113.00).

Trump !!

you niggers got some balls thinking you can shoot one of those ICBM's down. Maybe just maybe if it's over your own territory but the tech has barely been proven.

North Korea is a joke - people still care about this?  Country barely has electrical power and we're worried they are going to send a nuke over??

People you are BEING PLAYED - stop globalists wars and spend our dollars (and worries) at home!

spastic_colon's picture

a missile laden with a rice warhead maybe...........a nuke warhead not so much..........the fact that anyone thinks ANY of our major trading partners would allow NK to bomb us is ridiculous let alone one that "may" "could" reach our would be like a pop bottle rocket.

I have to say that I am heartened by the sincere efforts being made to achieve a peaceful settlement and accomodation.

Hope it's a direct hit.


And the next one heads for Wall St.


Team Kim.

If it lands in San Francisco should we be angry or should we send a thank you note.  I am kinda torn on this one.

Depends.  If the bomb releases a smug cloud that travels to different states and spreads the stupidity it would be very bad.

... this video, and particularly beginning @0:55, explains why DPRK armed themselves to prevent another (((Red Shield)))-inspired attack ...

... as a reminder, NK is one of the last 4 countries resisting membership in the (((Global Central Banking Cabal))) ...

... all wars are banksters' wars ...


yogibear's picture

Even WWII.

Started by the central banksters from WWI debt.

These banksters would have won with either side as the victor.

Just a huge  banking/money-changer cabal.

Profiting from death.

I'm ok with that.

How about you?

Engdahl says Kim Jong Un is false opposition.

Engdahl says that Kim Jong Un lived in Switzerland from 1991 until 2000. He attended the Liebefeld Steinhölzli school in Köniz near Bern. The strongest hint that Kim Jong Un is a "Pentagon" puppet and not a communist (Chinese) puppet is that he had China's best friend in Pyongyang, Jang Sung-taek, executed. He also ordered the systematic execution of all other members of Jang's family including children and grandchildren (and others that were considered too close to China).

Other hints are that he is usefully (to the US) provocative and doesn't seem to listen to China.

Engdahl also thinks North Korea is an Pentagon Vassal State, but it seems more likely that Kim Jong Un is indeed a "Pentagon" man but that North Korea is (i.e., will be treated as) an enemy state.

Remember: The first rule for fighting a (real) war is to place your own puppet as the leader of the enemy.

Also, one should not forget that Trump, Obama, Bush and Clinton are all Jews.

And as an example of how real wars are fought,....

Proof that Adolf Hitler was a double agent.

It seems pretty weird when you first read it, but its clearly true.

There are now "transgendered" 4-year olds showing up in the grocery stores. Sigh. The human-zoo creatures here continue to degenerate.

"But they exploded an H bomb!"

"Making it small enough to go on top of an ICBM is another story all together."

"We can't afford to wait to see if they can"


jaxville's picture

Excellent point.  I seen a pic of the first H bomb that was tested in the Pacific some years ago.  It weighed several tons.  The early bombs were enormous.  It took years to miniaturize the technology to make a deliverable missile warhead.

Well we don't really let them, but if they do there's not much we can do, right?

Maybe the Japs, thank god you've never had quarrels with them...

whom do you mean: our partners?

we in EU see you as occupation force, being here on our continent since 70 years, since the end of the WWII.

Dream on, that you have anypartners somewhere.

UK paid back the WWII debt in 2015 to you.

I do not believe, that UK people love you.

Nothing happens.  WSJ had a great video this morning about DPRK's nuke program, basically said they've already got them and have the ability to fuel their rockets horizontally. 

Basically, if we were to try and decapitate the regime, we might end up with one less Tokoyo and Seoul as the Norks will just incinerate these cities after dear leader gets offed. 

Kim will still be "Chairman" long after Trump is no longer POTUS. 

Big Hugh's picture

Nonsense. There are options other than global nuclear war.

Why not a tiny vial of whatever they've cooked up in the germ labs lately?

"Basically, if we were to try and decapitate the regime, we might end up with one less Tokoyo and Seoul as the Norks will just incinerate these cities after dear leader gets offed."  

I doubt the blow back will be limited to Tokyo or Seoul.  The Norks have plenty of sleeper cells here in the good old USA.  My bet is that they will will take out the megatransformers that power our grid.   A dozen two man teams equiped with 50 cal AP ammo could put us in the dark for a long long time.

Out of curiosity.

Who is "we"? Does Kimmy threaten Vaterland?

keep cool. Kim Jong-Un is just a pissed gold bug taking on the short seller cartel.

Nuking D.C. would cause an economic rebirth for America.  So NK will let America spiral into 3rd world balkanized backwater with D.C. tearing it apart

The banking parasites are already salivating.  

Perimetr's picture

you won't be laughing when a nuke goes off in a container vessel or in a hold of a ship sitting in San Diego

Anteater's picture

I worked in the program. You have a 50:50 chance if you

already know the launch time, trajectory and the target.

If you don't know one of those things, it drops to 33:67.

If you don't know two of those things, it drops to 10:90.

If you don't know any of those things, it drops to 0:100.

You know this how exactly ?

As all our IC assessments have been totally FUBAR, unless you're little Kim behind that avatar,

are you willing to bet millions of lives on that bullshit assumption.

consider me gone's picture

So we have exactly how much time before they get to 100% capability? Even if you could answer that question exactly, what does Miss Manners say regarding the socially acceptable time frame for a first strike to avoid a nuclear holocaust on ye homeland? 

consider me gone's picture

So you're saying a first strike is the way to go. Otay! You got it.

He can't. The only way to stop it is to bomb the launch site

Ntoxic8ingWave's picture

Oh wait, I thought they already had one capable of hitting the east coast...

Golden Breakout's picture

I guess now they can hit both coasts... bummer.

icedoc's picture

They have secret midrange refueling option. I can make up stories, too.

Agent P's picture

I has a question on that....for an ICBM to reach the US from NK, it has to go into orbit, right?  If yes, then why is the west coast the extent of its range?  Orbit and re-entry should allow them to target anywhere on the globe, right?  Anyone with background care to enlighten me on this?  

Mr.BlingBling's picture

No, suborbital is sufficient because they don’t have to completely circle the earth (i.e. orbit it) in order to reach the west coast

Things will get interesting when they have to power to place the “physics package” in orbit because they can then just let it sit in orbit until a time of their choosing. If it’s in a polar orbit then any point on earth will eventually be within reach and the accuracy will be phenomenal because they’ll have the leisure to track its location precisely and time the deorbit perfectly. That, combined with the lack of warning, is why we and the USSR entered into a treaty prohibiting such orbital weapons.

oncemore's picture

they fly a balistic trajectory, parabolic curve. not orbital trajectory.

Old  russian stans are capable of flying orbital trajectory, they are nowdays, being used to launch civilian satellites.


Those times 800 Satans have been the hammer against US missile shield, because you could never know, from which direction and when Satans start their decent from orbit. Real Satans. US has never had a slightest chance against them. 8 tons throw weight, means 20 nukes and 20 decoys delivered with one shot. Like 12 gauge rifle shooting a hen from 5m distance.

One Satan saturates the US defence to 100%, all others go through.

Now Sarmat has to replace Satan in 2018.Forget THAAD, forget Standard missiles SM3, the shooting has not to take place first, everybody will loose, should Clinton, now Trump, provoke a war.

Sarmat is capable of orbital trajectory, ballistic trajectory and even a trajectory in upper atmosphere, like 90km or 100km, simply forget all radars, they will see nothng, just a ball of plasma, unpredictable and you will not be able to aim at it, there are  no such sensors. Sarmat has even a bigger throw weight, then Satan. Simply Russia is not a beduin tribe.

It is better to collaborate with Russia, then have them as enemies. Ask Poland, Sweden, Napolen, or Hitler.

HRClinton's picture

Give it a rest or a real test.

You can't rely on any of the propaganda on any side, until you see their ICBM fly to its Apex over the Pacific, and then made to detonate. 

Until then, it's just hype, jive and fluff.

If Kim can't get his rocket to fly that high, it means he needs Flyagara.
