Tillerson: China agrees on ‘action’ on North Korea as navy strike group sails
Massachusetts senator Ed Markey, a Democratic member of the Senate’s foreign relations committee, said such moves would cause “an escalation of tension that could lead to nuclear war”.
I have questions. What is the range of North Korean missiles? Can they carry nuclear warheads? The BBC has some answers. South Korea and Japan are going to feel the brunt of any retaliation, but there are submarine launched missiles with a range of several thousand kilometers, which pey uts the entire West Coast of the US at risk. There are also long range missiles that could reach all of Alaska, Hawaii, and the Pacific Northwest. The belief is that all these have conventional warheads.
