The official state media of North Korea implied in an announcement on Monday that Hawaii and Alaska may be potential targets for an ICBM missile strike.

North Korea conducted a successful intercontinental ballistic missile test on the 4th of July holiday.

Check it out (per The Daily Caller):

“Hawaii, where the U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM) is stationed, and Alaska,” where part of the U.S. missile shield is based, are in range of North Korea’s missiles, the Rodong Sinmun wrote Sunday, according to NK News. North Korea successfully tested the Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile earlier this month, and the weapon is believed to have a range between 4,500 and 6,000 miles, which would give Pyongyang the ability to strike targets in Hawaii, Alaska, and possibly even parts of the West Coast.

Many believe that the odds of a North Korean missile strike are low, given the devastating blowback that would ensue.

Defectors have said it could happen, however, should a conflict or regime collapse occur.
