US might be forced to destroy a North Korean missile over Russian airspace if Kim Jong-un’s regime declares warSeptember 29, 2017
The US could be forced to intercept a North Korean missile over Russian airspace if Kim Jong-un’s regime attempts to strike its arch-foe.
Any missile fired at the US by the totalitarian dictatorship would most likely fly over the North Pole and may even have to be destroyed over Russia itself.
General Lori Robinson, the head of the US Northern Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (or NORAD), said it was something she is ‘aware of’.
She added, as reported in Defense One: ‘It’s something we work our way through. What you have to do is sit down and go, okay, what is the azimuth. When would be the right time to take the best shot to defend? That’s about all I’ll say.’
