Will Congress tax every American taxpayer $20,000 to pay for a new Korean war? Will Russia sit by quietly while the US blows apart North Korea? Does anyone in the White House know that North Korea borders on Russia and is less than 200km from the key Russian port of Vladivostok?

North Korea’s Solid-Fuel Missiles Are Scarier Than Another Nuclear Test | War is Boring

Specifically, during the annual Day of the Sun military parade, North Korea showed off new solid-fuel rocket technology for its medium- and longer-range missiles, which if Pyongyang can perfect, would significantly shorten its rockets’ launch time. This would make the North Korean military more capable of fighting a nuclear war, while sharply increasing the risk of a conflict.
