North Korea facts for missile range shown on map

Popular social media website and blog, Mashable has highlighted just how far North Korea’s missile range could be, although you should remember that these so-called North Korea facts are still based on a lot of speculation.

The North Korea missile range map above shows the impact areas if a nuclear missile were to launch, and this is a major concern for those that reside near to North Korea, the charts also shows that countries such as Alaska may not be at threat, it also shows Australia, Canada and Hawaii need not worry.

North Korea facts note that the long-range missiles are unreliable, so much so that the Taepodong-2 was tested and literally after one minute after launch it failed. It is still worrying that the North Korea missile launch in 2013 could happen and no one really knows the true state of impact, especially when it comes to the range.

Two mobile missiles have apparently been moved so that they are in range to North Korea’s east cost, and the missiles could potentially reach Guam, but at the moment no one knows what kind have been moved to the east coast of North Korea, but they are said to have intermediate range.

These threats are being seen as a “bluff”, it does stand to reason because the nuclear attack would be impractical given the North’s rudimentary missile programme. The North Korea provocations has prompted the Pentagon to deploy a defense shield to Guam, please do read more via the BBC website where they talk more in-depth of what is happening.

What the people are saying
One commenter over on Mashable commented that its article lacks common sense; they say that the missiles could leave a sub and not North Korea and that the missiles are nuke tipped. The missiles could be sitting in US via the OPEN BORDER.

Another comment stood out a little on Mashable’s site, the commenter said, “What will happen if someone hacks controls of North Korean’s missiles and launches it?”
