This one flew longer and higher than the first ICBM missile, launched July 4l. Leading analysts believe North Korean missiles could know travel as far as Miami Florida, analysts estimated that the first missile could only have reached Alaska and/or Hawaii, maybe the west coast of the U.S.
Japan's chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga said the missile, launched late Friday night, landed about 240 miles from mainland Japan after flying for about 45 minutes, NHK reported.
It was launched on a very high trajectory and landed close to the west coast of Hokkaido in Japan.
U.S. plans to test missile-defense system to counter North Korea
Bruce Klingner, a Korean and Japanese affairs specialist at the Heritage Foundation think tank in Washington, warned that the entire United States has come within range of North Korean missiles.
Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called a meeting of Japan's National Security Council after the missile launched Friday.
"I have received information that North Korea once again conducted a missile firing," he said. "We will immediately analyze information and do our utmost to protect the safety of the Japanese people."

"We assess that this missile was an intercontinental ballistic missile, as had been expected," Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis said.
U.S. officials said Tuesday they anticipated a missile test from the reclusive nation within days, after spotting missile-launching equipment moving into a site in Kusong.
In early July, North Korea said it had conducted its first test of an intercontinental ballistic missile, capable of deploying a nuclear warhead that could reach Alaska or Hawaii, according to experts.

Friday's missile flew about five minutes longer than the first ICMB missile North Korea test-fired.
President Trump weighed in on Friday's test launch, calling it "the latest reckless and dangerous action by the North Korean regime." Saying "The United States condemns this test and rejects the regime's claim that these tests — and these weapons — ensure North Korea's security."
THE BOTTOM LINE: THAAD has less than a 40 percent kill rate shooting down missiles under the most ideal conditions knowing beforehand the trajectory and speed of the target. But in reality everything is unknown. It might be a good idea to start practicing shooting down North Koreas test missiles before they fire a real one at us.
Yeah yah think??? Or we could always “Duck and cover.” We don’t even have our “cold war early warning air raid sirens” anymore.
I hope you at least have your gas mask canisters up to date, and a little Iodide wouldn’t hurt either.
Thanks for listening. Now go do the right thing and fight for truth and freedom.
