Authentic North Korean Doom, to go

Quote:Early this morning on the Korean Peninsula, the launchers were in position… more missiles took to the sky.

Unlike yesterday though, these surface-to-surface weapons were fired by U.S. and South Korean forces. It was partly a military exercise to counter "North Korea's destabilizing and unlawful actions," said a statement from U.S. Forces Korea.

Experts say if you flatten out that path, the missile has enough range to hit North America. David Wright, a physicist with the respected Union of Concerned Scientists, estimates the distance at 6,700 kilometres.

"That range would not be enough to reach the lower 48 states … but would allow it to reach all of Alaska," he writes in his blog.
At that rate, it could also hit Whitehorse in Yukon. Other international experts say the potential distance could be more than 9,000 kilometres, which would put San Francisco, as well as Vancouver, at risk.

Granted any missiles would be shot down long before they reach the continent, but if any get through...
