North Korea’s Kim Jong-un Tests Pukguksong-2 Missile — What Does It Mean For The Rest Of The World?

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un reportedly showed that in the event of World War 3 or the first nuclear missile attack since World War 2, his country is ready to strike any country within a few minutes.

Kim Jong-un’s latest missile launch showed that the North Korea’s military is finally able to operate weapons from anywhere in the country, not just from an exact predefined position.

The reported testing of Korean Peninsula’s medium-range Pukguksong-2 missile on Sunday was the latest in the series of ballistic missile test launches this year. Based on Kim’s recent statements released by his foreign ministry and his continued experiment to test his missile has proved that Pyongyang is finally stepping up its efforts to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile, which will be capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the mainland United States of America.

North Korea’s New Missile Test Grounds:

According to 38 North, the US-Korea Institute at John Hopkins SAIS, if Kim Jong-un can launch his missiles from anywhere, it would be extremely difficult for countries like Japan, China, and the United States to target launch positions with air strikes.

Prior to the reports submitted by 38 North, it was addressed by South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff’s statement that the test of Pukguksong-2 took place near Pukchang in Pyeongannam-do. However, when the updated satellite images and videos from 38 North were observed, it appeared that it was not the exact location of the missile test.
