As North Korea prepares for a major conflict with the United States, a new and powerful defense system is ready to take the North Koreans head on.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been testing missiles for months and has openly threatened the U.S. on numerous occasions.
Enough is enough!
According to reports, North Korea has even developed an ICBM that they believe is capable of reaching Alaska, directly putting our country’s safety at risk.
That is set to change after America’s Pacific commander Adm. Harry Harris Jr. revealed the new Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, better known as the THAAD system.
In a report, Harris revealed that “any North Korean missile fired at U.S. forces would be destroyed,” adding,” if it flies, it will die.”
“South Korea’s trumpeting of progress in setting up the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, comes as high-powered U.S. military vessels converge on the Korean Peninsula and as a combative North Korea signals possible nuclear and missile testing. Harris said the THAAD would be operational within days,” according to Business Insider.

A recent test showed the THAAD system annihilate a test ICBM that was launched over Alaska.
“The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system has successfully shot down a target over Alaska, in the system’s first intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) intercept, according to the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA).”
“THAAD managed to shoot down the IRBM target launched from the Pacific Spaceport Complex in Kodiak, Alaska, on Tuesday, the MDA said in a statement cited by Reuters.”
“’The successful demonstration of THAAD against an IRBM-range missile threat bolsters the country’s defensive capability against developing missile threats in North Korea and other countries around the globe and contributes to the broader strategic deterrence architecture’, the MDA said in the statement.”
