NORTH KOREAN LEADER KIM JONG UN SAID THEIR 2ND. ICBM TEST PUTS MUST OF US IN RANGE :

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said  the second flight test of an intercontinental ballistic missile demonstrated his country can hit the US mainland, hours after the launch left analysts concluding that a wide swath of the United States, including Los Angeles and
Chicago, is now in range of North Korean weapons. The Korean Central News Agency said that Kim expressed “great satisfaction” after the Hwasong-14 missile reached a maximum height of 3,725 kilometres and traveled 998 kilometres before accurately landing in waters off Japan. Analysts had estimated that the North’s first ICBM on July 4 could have reached Alaska, and said that the latest missile appeared to extend that range significantly. Immediately after the launch, US and South Korean forces conducted live-fire exercises. South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo called for the deployment of strategic US military assets which usually means stealth bombers and aircraft carriers as well as additional launchers of an advanced US anti-missile system.  Rediff.com : 29th.
