    North Korea Reportedly Just Moved Its Missiles a Little Closer to the U.S.

    A number of sources have told South Korea's Yonhap news agency that North Korea just moved its mid-range Musudan missile to the east coast of the country. That's towards the United States. But don't worry. It's towards a lot of other stuff, too, notably the Pacific Ocean where many of North Korea's failed missile tests have landed.

    Before getting into the specifics of this latest provocation, let us remind you that the escalation of North Korea's threatening rhetoric is just that: threatening rhetoric. Kim Jong-Un and friends have been slinging increasingly threatening threats at the United States and allies (read: South Korea) for weeks now, and yet, we're not swimming in a river of fire and our waists are not broken, as Kim Jong-Un promised they would be.

    Things get a little more worrisome when North Korea actually starts moving its arsenal around. According to Yonhap's sources, a Musudan missile made its way by train to the country's east coast early Thursday morning. Japan's Asahi Shimbun published similar reports, signaling that this is no false alarm. It's so far unclear if had been moved to the spot on the northeastern coast where North Korea has launched many (failed) missile launches in the past. But it's never a good sign to see North Korea translating its trash-talk into arming weapons.

    Realize, the range of the reported missiles puts Guam more in range...the US west coast, not so much.
    I hear she was stationed at a silo once...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    The chances of this thing hitting an island, as opposed to an entire continent, are virtually nil. In addition to only having the range to get a third of the way to most West Coast American targets, this particular vehicle has an accuracy that is more in the 'Artillery rocket' category than the 'Guided missile' one, for those who understand the difference involved, and that's on the occasions when it actually works and makes it to maximum ordinate without exploding.
