A website that monitors military activity within North Korea claims they have spotted a newly-installed barge that could mean Kim’s military is planning to accelerate their SLBM test program.

An SLBM is a ballistic missile, along with a submarine-housed counterpart that is essentially a rocket capable of carrying nuclear bombs at a distance that could reach the United States.

North Korea could essentially strike Los Angeles or Seattle if this report from 38North is correct. This also sparked the impulse for President Trump to consider meeting with Kim for a face-to-face discussion to slow aggressions.
