On the night of July 3 in Washington, or July 4 in Asia, North Korea successfully launched an intercontinental ballistic missile, marking a new frontier in the threat that they pose to the United States.
In the days immediately following the launch, it came to light that the United States military had actually been watching the North Koreans prepare to launch the missile, and they even had North Korean despot Kim Jong Unin their sights, Business Insider reported.
For over an hour, the United States watched Kim walk around the launch site. All we would have needed to do was push a button, launch a precision missile and Kim would have been turned into a pile of ash.
While our ability to strike deep into the heart of North Korea isn’t exactly something new, what is shocking is that the United States would broadcast to the world the fact that we were watching Kim that night.
Clearly, President Donald Trump’s administration and the American military were sending a message to Kim that we can get him anytime, anywhere.
Good luck sleeping well at night, Kim — we’ll be watching.
