U.S. Military Responds After North Korea’s Latest Missile Test


IN LOS ANGELES, THIS IS KCAL9 NEWS JEFF: WELCOME BACK VAUGHN. I’M LEYNA WENT. A MILITARY RESPONSE FROM THE U.S. AFTER NORTH KOREA’S LATEST MISSILE TEST. JEFF: IT PROMPTED TOUGH TALK FOR THE SECRETARY OF STATE. ELSA: DAVE BRYAN SHOWS YOU THE RESPONSE FROM AMERICAN AND SOUTH KOREAN FORCES REALLY LOOKS LIKE THIS LAUNCH MAY HAVE BEEN TIMED TO SOCKET TO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THE STORY IS DEVELOPING QUICKLY. THE MISSILE LAUNCH TODAY WAS IN FACT AN INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE. THROWING FUEL ON THE FIRE, KIM JONG-UN TAUNTED THE U.S. BY DECLARING THE LAUNCH WAS A FOURTH OF JULY GIFT FOR THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. IT WAS A MISSILE LAUNCH WITH A MESSAGE. NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR MISSILE PROGRAM IS MOVING FASTER THAN ANYONE IMAGINED. I BALLISTIC MISSILE CAPABLE OF STRIKING AT LEAST ONE AMERICAN STATE. IT ONLY TRAVELED ABOUT 600 MILES BECAUSE IT WAS LAUNCHED AT A HIGH ANGLE, RISING ABOUT 1500 MILES. IT FLEW FOR 37 MINUTES, LONG ENOUGH TO BE AN INTERCONTINENTAL MISSILE AND IF IT HAD BEEN LAUNCHED ON A STANDARD TRAJECTORY IT COULD HAVE TRAVELED ABOUT 4000 MILES. THAT MEANS IT COULD REACH ALASKA. IN JANUARY, KIM JONG-UN BRAGGED HIS COUNTRY WAS GETTING CLOSE TO LAUNCHING AN ICBM, PRESIDENT-ELECT TWEETED, IT WON’T HAPPEN. HE WAS WRONG. THE TUESDAY LAUNCH TOOK AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES BY SURPRISE. JUST A FEW HOURS LATER, THE U.S. AND SOUTH KOREA RESPONDED BY LAUNCHING MISSILES INTO WATERS OFF KOREA’S EAST COAST. A SHOW OF FORCE AND COMMITMENT TO SOUTH KOREA. THE MISSILES ARE CAPABLE OF DELIVERING POWERFUL WARHEADS INTO NORTH KOREAN TERRITORY. DAVID WRIGHT SAYS NORTH KOREA IS STILL A COUPLE YEARS AWAY FROM REACHING U.S. SOIL. I WOULD SAY A BIGGER THREAT THAN ANYTHING NORTH KOREA HAS LAUNCHED BEFORE, IN PART BECAUSE IT CAN REACH ALASKA, BUT IN PART BECAUSE IT SHOWS THE KOREANS ARE MOVING FORWARD AT A SURPRISINGLY RAPID PACE REALLY NOW THE QUESTION IS, WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT? AFTER A SUMMIT MEETING IN MOSCOW, RUSSIA AND CHINA ADVOCATED A PLAN WHERE MISSILE AND NUCLEAR TESTING WOULD BE FROZEN AND IN RETURN THE U.S. AND SOUTH KOREA WOULD FREEZE THE JOINT MILITARY EXERCISES LIKE THE FIRING OF THOSE MISSILES ON TUESDAY. CBS NEWS REPORTS THE PENTAGON IS WORKING ON MILITARY SHOW OF FORCE OPTIONS. INCREASING TEST FIRING OF U.S. MISSILES BASED IN SOUTH KOREA. ONE OFFICIAL SAID THE OPTIONS DON’T INCLUDE ANY FORM OF MILITARY STRIKE AGAINST NORTH KOREA. U.S. WHO WAS INVOLVED IN PAST NEGOTIATIONS TOLD THE CBS EVENING NEWS HE’S NOT SURE ANY OPTIONS WOULD ACTUALLY WORK. THERE ARE TWO OPTIONS AND THEY’RE ALL BAD. THERE IS PUBLIC STATEMENTS AND DIPLOMACY AND MILITARY STRIKE OPTION WHICH I DON’T THINK IS REALISTIC. IT COULD PROVOKE A TERRIBLE WAR. I THINK IN BETWEEN THERE MIGHT BE SOME ADDITIONAL PRESSURES. A NEW APPROACH TO BRING INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE, NOT JUST THE SURROUNDING COUNTRIES. REPORTER: THE G20 SUMMIT IS JUST A COUPLE DAYS AWAY AND THE DEBATE IS CERTAIN TO HEAT UP. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS PUSHING CHINA TO GET TOUGH BUT THEY FEEL THEY HAVE ALREADY DONE PLENTY TO REIN IN NORTH KOREA, NO LONGER BUYING COAL AND COMING BACK DIESEL EXPORTS. THEY BELIEVE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING THE RIGHT THING BY PRESSURING CHINA. I THINK EVENTUALLY WE HAVE TO MAKE A DEAL, BUT WE NEED CHINA. CHINA IS NOT STEPPING UP. I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS RIGHT TO JAB THEM A LITTLE BIT WITH THESE INITIATIVES THAT STIR THE CHINESE UP. IF THEY REALLY WANT TO HELP, THEY CAN DO IT. REPORTER: THE DEBATE WILL MOVE TO THE UNITED NATIONS AFTER THE U.S. PUSHED FOR AN EMERGENCY MEETING. THAT MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE TOMORROW AFTERNOON. NIKKI HALEY WILL PRESENT THE CASE AGAINST NORTH KOREA. SECRETARY OF STATE REX TENNYSON SAID IT WILL TAKE GLOBAL ACTION TO STOP THE GLOBAL THREAT POSED BY NORTH KOREA. TELLERS AND SAID THEY WOULD BE ENACT STRONGER MEASURES AGAINST

  1. Trump lowered taxes for the richest one percent of Americans while breaking his promise NOT to cut medicare!

  2. fuck china and trading with them get americans to work make our own. Made in China is cheaply made. Buff up our military. Now is the time. To work out and flex flex flex!

  3. Just send in Special Forces with a sniper and be done with it. It's not like they don't where he is at all times.

  4. Up to now, I had thought it prudent to show self-restraint, and treat Little Kim as not credible threat. Assuming this was a real launch (landing inside Japanese territorial waters ??), and not fake news : This though, is an act of war. The time for diplomacy and sanctions are over.
    A direct and full-scale military offence is now justified, with two objectives : Deposing and eliminating Little Kim, and destroying all armament, nuclear, biological and any other in North Korea, as well as demolishing any nuclear facilities.

  5. action speak louder than word, , , ill admit there president do more action than words … but hope it won't affect us civilians ..

  6. We are currently at war in 7 countries so going to war in N. Korea would collapse our economy. More tax breaks would be given to the 1% and more taxes piled on the rest of the country. Not to mention all the dead sons the billionaires will lose fighting a drawn out war, no wait billionaires profit from wars they don't suffer them. I wonder who owns all the news outlets flaming a war with N. Korea.

  7. Kim must realize that one of his ICBM will be retaleated with multiple nukes fired from a America and its Allies then NK will liberated, hope there is peace.

  8. North Korea= no war in 2 decades
    USA = 9 wars in 2 decades 3+million deads.
    North Korea is a hostile country!

  9. i find this so funny… people in the comments dont really understand that you can just take out north korea even if you could take over that country in 3 days that guy still has nukes like wtf you going to do once you start to kill them they can just nuke them selves and end the world this is not a problem that can be solved just buy killing them…

  10. He needs to be hit hard and fast its going to take a lot blood and guts to stop him from getting any further in his development.

  11. Lets not wait until they can hurt us, we need to stop them now and make it so they never can rise again, total destruction!!!!

  12. i can't wait for North Korea to nuke America or give it to ISIS for nuclear suicide bombing. The world would cheer the death of America. The world will be free. It would be like the end of the star wars trilogy, the death of the empire. When dust has cleared, the world celebrates its independence day. China takes most of the West coast. Mexico takes much of the South. Russia takes back Alaska and the Natives can finally reclaim there god given lands in the east coast and the remaining bulk of the north. All thanks to North Korean martyrs.

  13. North Korea has been flirting with disaster for a longtime. Sleep with ease Americans, they will be obliterated when they finally make a mistake. They have a standing military with 500,000 troops. Really no navy. Their airforce will be wiped out under 72 hours are less. Then that 500,000 troops will be whittled away from our bombs, South Korea, and Japan. It is only inevitable.

  14. .President Vladimir Putin is only one guy here that is seeking peace and that is PUTIN .Its pointless, the US warmongers will just break the agreement as usual..;;The U.S. is just another puppet state ruled by a shadow of the Globalists Cartels Zio government …..ISIS is the CIA ,Mossad and M15 operation same as Al Qaeda and Taliban are all paid mercenaries by the U.S. and CIA operation ….Radical Islamic terrorism" is a tool that is fueled and exploited by the U.S,.U.K,Saudi arabia and Zio interests. Time for everyone to wake up .What has Donald Trump accomplished since he got elected ? bullying Mexico about building a Wall and Harrasing and warmongering North Korea and forgetting his country is on the way down sinking like a titanic ship distraction from the real economic problems in the U.S. .The Long, Dirty History of U.S. Warmongering Against North Korea…The US. wants to nuke north Korea and Disarming the North Koreans is what the US wants.

  15. "It'll provoke a terrible war"

    There's going to be a terrible war regardless, how terrible depends on how long we pretend that diplomatic means will do anything to stop North Korea from acting like this.

  16. The real solution is to send the The Navy SEAL Team and take this bastard . Same type of operation when Osama was killed.

  17. kick their ass america we in aussie are ready for war we have nz who have just completed their missile launchΒ  we have allies to help

  18. I come from 5 generations of US Military family. We live in California. I don't appreciate you complete ignorance that you didn't care if California was taken out in an attack. Your an ungrateful human being. It's on the backs of these Brave Men and Women, you are free to hide behind the internet.

  19. I not even sure why we are even tolerating this guy. Drop couple of nuke on this guy and clean this communist terrorism.

  20. Did you not pay attention 5 generations of Military? 100% American raised here. It amazes me that Men and Women serve for all Americans- even idiots like you that want are family dead. God bless our troops and keep them all safe. I pray we don't go to war. But you one day you will answer to God for your hatred.

  21. The North Korean leaders do not seem to know that the US has ICBMs too. The US has thousands of nuclear weapons too which could reach all of North Korea. If the North Korean regime wants to commit suicide we may oblige them in thirty minutes. Have a nice day.

  22. NKorea tested a Mickey-mouse rocket and US media is calling for a military response while inciting hysteria among the gullible masses. In response US government is a screaming chicken little. USA is even blaming China for not reigning in NKorea, a sovereign nation. The American media is intentionally deceiving the gullible mass. Facts: USA has several thousands of operational MIRV ICBM and SLBM, hundreds of land and sea based nuke cruise missile and strategic bombers. Just one US naval task force has enough nuke weapons to destroy NKorea several times over. In contrast NKorea does not even have one operational short range nuke missile, no naval task force, no SLBM, no missile shield, no strategic bomber, no cruise missile. The war mongers within the US Government have instigated this entire NKorea-missile threat so as to justify more installation of THAAD in South Korea, Japan, and beyond. USA wants to encircle Russia and China airspace by installing THAAD in nations closest to their borders: Japan, SKorea, Turkey, and former Warsaw Pact nations. The installation of missile shield batteries has been accomplished in Japan and several Eastern European nations, despite the danger that THAAD missile site invites 1st strike nuke attacks. When The political leadership of Turkey and SKorea resisted US pressure to allow installation of THAAD, the CIA attempted to overthrow the Turkish government while in SKorea the CIA fabricated corruption evidence against the former SKorean PM who subsequently was forced to step-down. As predicted the installation of the new SKorean PM paved the way for THAAD on SKorean soil. Working behind the scene, the US hopes to have THAAD in Turkey, Burma, Vietnam, and one of the '-stan' nations such as Afghanistan. The Big Media is in cahoots with the war mongers of the US government by publishing fake news and withholding the facts from the people.

  23. all the world is a stage, this is just more propaganda for the idiots to soak up. idiots fail to realize that all these countries are colluding with each other to push an agenda.. I call you a bad guy because I want something out of you.. natural resources? colonization? power? massive indoctrination?.. all these little events are orchestrated and are put on display for the world to see. it's all just a big act

  24. These dumb Americans can't get out of their small bubble and realize that China is actually behind all this. How can a small country like NK with no food to feed its people, can build technology so fast on their own.
    China is feeding it's dogs like NK and Pakistan who can bite anyone China wants.

  25. Just take out Washington, it will solve most of the world problems in the long run. I have no hate for the American public, but fuck the deep state. Also don't forget Langley, FBI, NSA, Hillary Clinton's and john McCain's house etc.

  26. A fuckin dem agreeing with President Trump is more of a shocker than the DPRK using a multi stage missile!

  27. If we could get them to nuke LA, San Francisco, and San Diego they could take care of our liberal problem for us.

  28. even if Kim Jong il wanted peace he can't back down they'll dethrone him from power if he shows weakness he's trying to show he's people and everybody else that he's just as tough as his father he's not going to back down no matter what intimidation is not going to work

  29. this is just bullshit because if somebody started intimidating you a think you would do something about it. especially if your meant to be a world super power.

  30. Bullshit. All these missile testing threats are rubbish. Just another false flag to get people to start building up the hate for North Korea. Where is the absolute proof of these tests. Oh but the CIA told us. Just like the WOMD. BULLSHIT. The video clip have to be a deception to start with. You really think North Korea let Joe Blogs in to stand 500m away from the Missile and video it. BULLSHIT. MEDIA DOING WHAT THEY DO, Spreading PROPAGANDA for the Cabal

  31. country teared apart,trying to survive from american threats, did they bomb nagasaki or hiroshima, north korea is a threat because they did't, Americans don't make me laugh

  32. Fuck why don't the CIA knock his ass off, that square head of his would split like a melon !!!

  33. Leave this fat ass alone in a couple years will explode from stealing the countries cheese and eating it all. He will never first strike the news media is hyping this up for advertising dollars. Nk is and will always be bluffers the know we can wipe them off this planet within hours but will keep this bullshit up for corporate dollars. This fat worthless garbage has no money no food and 1950s garbage threatening us hoping China will step up and protect so this is all bullshit and nk knows it. Why keep launching those old ass rockets know we can only shoot down less then half would have hit sk along time ago but nooooo he is waiting for us to get 75% hit rate right? Come on guys you know this is all bullshit for ratings

  34. Americans don't make policy. It's the paid representatives, but paid by whom??!! As an individual American and a veteran, I hate war. But America's fighting forces does as ordered. But make no mistake who gives the orders. And according to the U.C.M.J. active duty personnel cannot openly disparage a sitting commander in chief.

  35. Is it just me or firing america and South Korea's missiles into nk waters may allow nk to recover them? Providing them with more potentioanl warheads (provided they weren't removed).

  36. Since when has anyone ever gotten The FAT IDIOT to keep any promise. ANYONE that believes he will live up to any promise is as stupid as he is. HE believes he is a god and will not stop until everyone praises him as a god. He believes that IF he hits the US with a single missile we will beg him to take over the world. The only response that will have any effect would be to kill him. The US needs to tell China and Russia they will take him out and they have a choice of either taking over north Korea with military forces or they will be looking at American forces across the border.

  37. He Will Only Launch One if it hits a country IT WILL BE THE LAST ONE HE EVER FIRES
    OFF !! HE WILL BE WIPED OUT & HE KNOWS IT !! HE IS MESSING WITH PEOPLE !! IGNORE THIS ATENTION SEEKER !!!

  38. what's ironic is how usa makes the rules for the whole world lmao u can't make nuclear weapons or we will put sanctions like come on dude is it usa = united states of America or is it USA = united sanctions of authorities who is one country to control another

  39. Respect for USA from Italy, come on Americans friends, you're the most powerful country in world after Russia and China…

  40. Maybe we should finish the Korean war? Japan, USMC and the ROK can do it in less then 2 months! They are well trained, highly mobile, well fed and at least 50 years in advence in technologies and tactics. The Supply and comunications of the enemy could be defeated easily by such a mobile and well organised force.

  41. does North Korea know what the yanks can do lol, honestly god help anyone who picks a fight with the Americans…😚

  42. US is trying China to check NK but if that does not work, then US will ramp up the pressure on South China Sea Islands. If that does not still work, then US might fight a "limited area" Falklands type air war with China. NK action will come only after than.

  43. i don't understand why does everything have to be about trump north Korea said this is a gift for those American bastards. let me give you some news media North Korea hates us no matter who's in office and stop trying to push your agenda that Republicans are fascist and democrats are angels because neither of those are true last time I check it was a Bernie supporter trying to kill republicans not a trump supporter trying to kill democrats enough with the hypocrisy. If you want respect in the media here's a thought be honest there's always going to be a bias but be honest assholes

  44. Special Forces, U.S or Russian, should Go Into North Korea and Put That Little Imp Out of Our Misery…Enough is Enough.!!!

  45. And everyone is saying that muslims are a threat, lol.
    If we wanted to, we could wipe out the entire middle east.
    The only real threat to the world is North Korea.

  46. many veterans that served in korea&vietnam have wanted justice for our dead in both conflicts.those that were elected have failed us since then and they will continue to fail us unless we pull the plug on our enemies once and for all.do not believe for a second the rhetoric of negotiations will be the means to an end.do not lower yourself to the level of the liberal fools that preach an end to global conflict thru negotiation,love,peace,
    hugs&mutual understanding.thats not how we are wired.

  47. Whatever happened to that movie about sending a couple of comics to take him out?
    Is it on the 99-cent rack yet?

  48. Will China and Russia stop defending these bastards already?? The US does not want war for god sake. North Korea does, which US always has to be blamed afterwards.

  49. I sure hope North Korea is over thrown fast so the people starving can eat and live in peace, It's sad to see all the suffering people being lead by a cruel dictator, sadem Hussain found out the hard way of war and Kim Jung un is about to learn also, pray for them all for not know what they do

  50. North Korea is going to hit Alaska soon real soon north Korea is not going to hit hawaii people who live in Alaska please run now

  51. You fucken uncivilized russiams are so fucken jealous that you'll never have what the Great USA has , you NEVER WILL , SO GET USED TO IT STUPID FUCKEN RUSSIANS !

  52. He fire a short range to show Japan he can blow there ass off the map.. And now he launch a ICBM to show Amerikkka she's in range. Make peace now or face the consequences.

  53. I hope Governor Brown can toss the rocks necessary to stop an NK Nuke from hitting California, because they are the easiest U.S. target to strike. Of course, the illegals won't be hurt by the blast, because… sanctuary state 'force field'.

  54. The Fish must be having one hell of a game dodging missiles. Give'em a break.!! I think an interesting question might be……..If we had a nuclear war, what are the chances the blasts could trigger other world events? Tsunami ? ? Supervolcano eruption and land masses washed away?

  55. Korea launches missiles because thats what China wants. Notice this happened again last year and year before that. And nothing ever happens to Korea. They are clearly under protection
