North Korea is really rattling its cage, threatening — or perhaps promising — to send atom bomb-tipped missiles toward the American territory of Guam. They are also making a follow-up threat of launching nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) at the western United States — including Hawaii and Alaska — as well as states along the Pacific Coast — Washington, Oregon, and California, along with Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and perhaps even parts of Rocky Mountain states.

The “iffy” quality of these threats is based on the relatively poor performance during tests of Korean war rockets. For instance, North Korea — when threatening Guam — said they would send missiles to detonate within 17 miles of Guam, suggesting that their accuracy is, by U.S. and Russian standards, pathetic. The small nuclear bomb their Hwasong-12 rockets are able to carry, when detonating 17 miles from Guam, will cause relatively little damage to the island. However, if one of those missiles landed close to Anderson AFB, one of the other American bases on Guam or on the island’s capital city, Hagåtña — known to Americans as Agana — casualties would reach the tens of thousands.

However, if the North Koreans’ new ICBM — the Taepodong-2, with a reported range of more than 6,000 miles, becomes war-capable — and it has a way to go before that can be proven — it might put cities as far east as Denver and Chicago at risk of a nuclear strike. The nuclear bomb it could carry would be small — very likely smaller than the bomb which vaporized much of Hiroshima — but even a small nuke would make the 9/11/2001 terror attack look like a walk in the park.
