US radar to monitor North Korea’s missile tests


A $900 million dollar radar is set to arrive at the end of January to monitor missile launch testing of North Korea. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said in his new year’s message that the country was nearing a test phase for (intercontinental) missiles capable of reaching the U.S.

This January 10th U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said that “If the missile is threatening, it will be intercepted. If it’s not threatening, we won’t necessarily do so…it may be more to our advantage to, … save our interceptor inventory, and, … to gather intelligence from the flight, rather [intercept a missile] when it’s not threatening.”
