Last quote about ICBM

James Syring - the Pentagon
The intercept of a complex, threat-representative ICBM target is an incredible accomplishment for the GMD system and a critical milestone for this program. This system is vitally important to the defense of our homeland, and this test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat. I am incredibly proud of the warfighters who executed this test and who operate this system every day. This did represent a very real operational scenario in the Pacific.feedback

What is very significant is that the North Koreans have paraded two canisters that could possible contain ICBM. We are not sure how far down that path they have got, but now we know they have got the shell capacity. It could be a mock-up, - they could just be at the design stage, or they could have gone further. Having a solid fuel missiles means you can launch it far quicker, and it is easier to hide. The US is goading them but they are playing with the wrong country. The North Koreans are not going to back down.feedback

The development of an ICBM would be particularly concerning for South Korea and Japan, because once the US know they can be targeted at home that may change their calculus as to whether they are prepared to help defend those countries if they are attacked by North Korea.feedback

But if it's not an ICBM itself, it's bridge to an ICBM. What's inside those is a mystery too. I think this is that. But this year, with all this other stuff, nobody cares about something that can go only 100 or 200 km.feedback

Cheong Seong-chang

North Korea made sure that the world saw that they are working on ICBMs and what we saw at the military parade was a prototype ICBM that will become the real deal after the necessary tests in the future. The prototype we saw [Saturday] is longer in the length from the ones NK has previously shown the world.feedback

Kim Hong-kyun

Both sides agreed that despite the international community's warnings, if North Korea makes strategic provocations such as a nuclear test or an ICBM launch, there should be strong additional measures in accordance with United Nations Security Council resolutions.feedback

John Schilling

An ICBM variant of the Unha could be sufficiently similar to the space launch vehicle in that it would be very likely to succeed, making it a good candidate for a political demonstration even though the Unha would make for a poor missile. Even a failure might put the North on a path to success. This is literally rocket science, one of the archetypal hard problems, and success can only be achieved through perseverance.feedback

Kim Jong-un

Once he sees that there is any kind of sign of a tank or an imminent threat from America, then he would use his nuclear weapons with ICBM. All of my family members were a little bit frightened, you know, on that day. But I always told them that we have to try to be as peaceful as possible. We should carry the normal faces and normal feelings so that our plan of defection should not be noticed by anyone in the embassy.feedback

Karl Dewey - IHS

It appears that an ICBM won't be available until the medium-to-long-term, but the North does have a habit of surprising us.feedback

Karl Dewey - IHS

Using computer modelling, we arrived at the tentative assessment that the reentry vehicle on the [ICBM] could survive atmospheric reentry.feedback

Kim Dong-yub

This was a comprehensive test for the first-stage rocket for an ICBM, and that is why it was dangerous. It appears that North Korea has worked out much of its development of the first-stage rocket booster.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

The ICBM program is real. They've showed us their static engine test. They showed us the mock-up of the nuclear warhead. They have done everything short of actually testing the ICBM. When they do test it, the first time it will probably fail. But eventually it will work. And when it works, people are going to freak out.feedback

Allan von Mehren - Danske Bank

Any remarks made by Trump should be taken with a grain of salt. However, the combination of more hawkish security advisors in the U.S. administration and North Korea's progression in developing an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) that could reach the US with a nuclear warhead points to a rising risk of a military confrontation.feedback

Thomas O. Karako

I think that this particular test, while falling short of an ICBM demonstration, ought be seen as a technological advance. If North Korea is getting solid rocket motors right, then that really is a potential step function to making it harder for the United States to target these things on the ground, because they're more mobile. Moreover if they can get the motors right, and they stack them and configure them with other motors in a multi-stage configuration, you may already have the pieces of an ICBM laying on the ground, even if they've not been tested altogether yet.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

It's not a guarantee, but it's a really important step. It's the straw that stirs the drink. If we get any bright ideas about rolling into Pyongyang, they have this retaliatory capability. And that really enables them to use their theater capabilities much more aggressively because we're not going to want to escalate. So if they have an ICBM capability that they can rely upon, it could be very destabilizing.feedback

Han Min-Koo

We are keeping an eye out, thinking data and technology from the latest test can be applied (to an ICBM).feedback

Joshua Pollack

I don't recognise the missiles from this description. But as we saw in 2016, there's certainly a variety of active missile programmes underway in North Korea.feedback

Joshua Pollack

It's also possible that they are simply conducting field exercises with no plans to launch, or the option to launch if decided.feedback

Narushige Michishita

(North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un said in his New Year speech that North Korea will finalize the process of developing an ICBM, so South Korea knows security cooperation with Japan and the United States is pretty important. But if they are to upgrade cooperation ... the political problem might affect a decision to go ahead, especially on the Korean side.feedback

Ash Carter

Saying "We only would shoot them down ... if it was threatening, that is if it were coming toward our territory or the territory of our friends and allies.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

There's a warren of tunnels under the nuclear site. And an ICBM can be launched from anywhere in the country because it's mobile. You might as well invade the country.feedback

Melissa Hanham

The bottom line is Pyongyang is much further along in their missile development than most people realize. The liquid engine test was astounding. For years, we knew that North Korea had a Soviet R-27 missile engine design. They re-engineered the design of that engine to double its propulsion.feedback

Melissa Hanham

Marked the year North Korea truly ramped up their WMD programme. I think we're going to see a [ICBM] flight test in 2017.feedback

Joshua Pollack

They're answering the public criticisms of U.S. experts.feedback

Kim Jong-un

S development of long-range missiles in 'final stages. Research and development of cutting-edge arms equipment is actively progressing and ICBM rocket test launch preparation is in its last stage.feedback
