On the Brink with North Korea

Americans will watch in anticipatory anxiety as the Trump administration handles its first real foreign policy conflict.

On the Brink

Pyongyang reached a dreaded milestone in its nuclear weapon capabilities on Tuesday, firing a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) – the Hwasong-15 – which flew 2,800 miles into space and demonstrated the ability to reach any part of the American homeland. The entire United States is now within range of Pyongyang. Or as Defense Secretary Mattis clarified, they can reach “everywhere in the world basically.”
