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

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).

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.

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.

"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.

I worked in the program. You have a 50:50 chance if youalready 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.THE POINT IS, DPRK DOESN'T HAVE GUIDANCE SYSTEM,AND THE MISSILES ARE ALL BEING FIRED OFF *EMPTY*.

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.

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.
