President Donald Trump has not been kind to the North Koreans as of late. And that is understandable, as he is not going to put up with their direct threats to the United States anymore. We are a nation that is not to be messed with and that is the message that President Trump wants to send out. It now looks like he has a very special message for Kim Jong Un.
That message would be in the form of a new $40 million missile that was just test fired as a direct threat to North Korea. The tensions between the two countries have grown ever since North Korea announced that it would be testing nuclear missiles in the near future. Trump has declared this unacceptable and has finally taken matters into his own hands.
This intercontinental ballistic missile is named The Minuteman III and is able to carry nuclear warheads. It was originally built in the 1970s and they all cost $7 million each. In the current economic climate that translates to $40 million a piece. The missile has since been upgraded heavily and is capable of doing some serious damage.
The missile traveled about 4,200 miles to be tested in the Marshall Islands. This is a direct threat to North Korea that is meant to show them what we are capable of as a nation. Kim Jong Un better be very careful moving forward. It looks like President Trump is no longer messing around.
Col John Moss said about the launch, “Test launches like this one are vital to calidating the effectiveness and readiness of our operational nuclear systems, so it is critical that they are successful.”
Let’s hope President Trump continues forward with these tests, as this is what we need to do to keep the United States safe.
What do you think about this test missile?
