Last quote about ICBM

Thomas O. Karako
They've clearly expressed their intent to have that [ICBM] capability. They've signaled and displayed missiles already that could have that capability. They haven't yet tested it in a full ICBM test. But it's one of those things folks are anticipating because they've come a long way over the past couple of decades.feedback

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

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

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

Donald J. Trump

North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won't happen! The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.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
