With nuclear weapons, total accuracy is not any more so important. Anyway these are intercontinental ballistic missiles, ballistic means they go where they are pointed; just like artillery shells.
Even the first ICBMs built in the '50s landed with 5 Km of their targets so Panama is not likely
They've not had much luck in launching missiles, many have exploded shortly after or during launch. And it's still not clear whether they have a warhead that would fit on to any missile at the present time.

And besides, even if they were to hit California, it wouldn't be the end of the world. They voted for Hillary after all

KK, is this satire or anti-American?

Actually that would be the ideal solution. They mount a nuclear warhead on their rocket, they fire it at Guam and it blows up on take off. Wipes out the entire NK political blockheads in one go.

Only problem with that is the hundreds of thousands of poor NK citizens who get killed as well.

Trump's hair being a separate entity makes sense. Means there's real brains behind him talking off the top of his head!
Ah that's what it is. I thought it was a badly-drawn tardigrade.

I bet you've already checked the provisions in your bunker.

As I said yesterday, the missile that could reach California from NK, the KN08, could also reach Switzerland.

Kusong - Los Angeles 9,518 km
Kusong - Bern 8,554 km

Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 4 hours ago

Senator Mitch McConnell said I had "excessive expectations," but I don't think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?
Picking a fight with the Republican Senate leader does not seem the best way to get one's legislation passed?
This will all end in tears!!

Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!

There was never a really strong link between Trump and the GOP and now Trump seems to be working on weakening the link. The White House people close to the GOP have mostly gone, e.g. Priebus, Spicer, Katie Walsh.

I foresee the GOP more and more sidelining Trump and writing new Bills that further their own aims rather than reflecting Trump's agenda. That leaves Trump with little recourse other than refusing to sign new bills which would likely bounce back negatively on him!

Standards are really slipping over at the KKK.
Used to be you'd have to hang a black man, these days you point out that CA is majority Hispanic and they'll let you in. It's become a joke.

Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing. You can do it!
The more time McConnell and Trump spend fighting each other then the less time they have to work on any new legislation; fine by me

Only it isn't - but the truth never much got in the way of the KKK anyway.

No Tom,
The Hispanics voted massively against him. You did read the stats, right?
Whose stats? You may have missed it in Zurich but we learned most of our news and statistics were indeed fiction in the past fifteen months. Many here are still in denial.
