North Korea recently tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that is reportedly capable of carrying nuclear warheads—and of reaching any part of the U.S. mainland.

NTD spoke to retired U.S. Army Col. John Mills, a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy, about the development. He described countermeasures such as U.S. missile interceptors in Alaska and California, AEGIS weapon system-capable ships in nearby waters, and South Korean “arsenal ships” that are to be deployed to counter the North Korean threat.

He also described the role North Korea plays as an arms manufacturer, supplying both China and Russia.
