OSINT News believes that, with countries like North Korea and Iran acquiring the capability to launch ICBM's, Western government's negotiation positions in the future will be severely weakened. Despite North Korea's failure yesterday, eventually, she will develop these capabilities; that's the nature of mankind! She has learned much from her missile failure and her ICBM technology will, over time, improve greatly.
OSINT News also feels that emerging and wannabe nuclear-armed ICBM countries will band together and merge their technologies. And, as they build and develop their ICBM numbers, payloads, and accuracy, they will have the capacity to change life as we know it in the U.S. less than 33 minutes. Regrettably, whatever location on Earth a missile is launched from, it would take 33 minutes or less to hit the U.S. target it was programmed to destroy.

A reasonable person would conclude that North Korea will sell ICBM and nuclear technology to rogue nations and threaten to use her ICBM's if she perceives to be threatened. As Iran continues to develop ICBM capabilities, as the world frets over the possibility of radical Islam taking over nuclear Pakistan, and when North Korea has already threatened use of her missile warheads offensively if the world places sanctions upon her (several years ago)...I think it's time for America to grow concerned. Perhaps, we should dig in and rethink President Reagan's Star Wars program.
