The unthinkable could be about to happen.
Kim Jong Un could strike America with a nuclear weapon.
And all it would take is 20 minutes for there to be a mushroom cloud over America.
Tensions with North Korea are ratcheting up.
Kim Jong Un continues to hurl threats at America and Donald Trump.
And Trump has said that while his goal is to resolve the crisis peacefully, North Korea must not be allowed to obtain a nuclear weapon that can strike anywhere in America.
But they already possess ICMB’s that can reach America.
And Alaska is squarely in Kim Jong Un’s range of fire.
In fact, state emergency officials are warning residents to stock up on extra food, water, radios, and emergency supplies in case a nuclear missile is fired at the state.
Missile defense and radar technology reside in Alaska which makes it a prime target for a surprise first strike.
And it would take just 20 minutes for a North Korea’s ICBM to obliterate targets in Alaska.
The Mirror reports:
“Alaska is being urged to prepare for a North Korean nuclear attack – amid fears that a warhead ‘could reach residents in 20 minutes’.
The country will NOT attempt evacuations if maniac despot Kim Jong-un fires a nuclear missile, emergency planners have warned.
Jeremy Zidek, from the state’s disaster planning team, urged locals to shelter in place should an attack happen – rather than risk being caught in the open for the blast.
He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights and radios.
And while he insisted that Alaska was unlikely target for a nuclear strike, Mr Zidek admitted that the state’s defensive facilities could be picked for attack.
Alaska is home to Fort Greely, where the US has interceptor rockets designed to destroy incoming intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).
The state also has missile defences at the Pacific Spaceport Complex as well as radar warning systems at Clear Air Force Station.
“We have the missile defence system here,” Mr Zidek said. “We have missiles and radars in number of different locations.”
“Perhaps there would be some type of attack on those military facilities to try to hinder our ability to react to any missile launches.”
Donald Trump has stated his goal is to resolve the situation peacefully and have a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.
But he has also declared that the era of “strategic patience” is over.
Will this result in war?
