Could an Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile test be the next North Korean provocation? I guess we will find out:
The Pentagon says the U.S. is “well postured” to deal with a possible submarine-launched ballistic missile from North Korea.
The Japanese daily Tokyo Shimbun reported last week that North Korea has completed development of five prototypes for an upgraded SLBM and will likely test it soon.
Pentagon spokesman Robert Manning wouldn’t comment on any matters of specific intelligence regarding North Korea on Monday – but said within the deep arsenal of U.S. capabilities, Washington is well postured to deal with it. [KBS Global]
