4/4/2013 - North Korea Moves Missiles Toward East Coast

After numerous recent threats of nuclear war  towards the United States and South Korea, North Korean forces have been observed moving what appear to be mid-range missiles towards the country’s east coast.
According to Reuters, intelligence officials are unsure whether or not the Musudan mid-range missiles are carry explosive warheads. The news organization suggests that the missiles may simply be “a show of force.”
"South Korean and U.S. intelligence authorities have obtained indications the North has moved an object that appears to be a mid-range missile to the east coast," an anonymous South Korean source told Reuters.
According to the Guardian, the North Korean Musudan missile has an estimated range of about 3,000 km (1,875 miles), placing the entirety of South Korea and Japan in the range of North Korea’s mid-range arsenal. Some reports also suggest that the United States territory of Guam is in range of these North Korean missiles as well. Reuters notes, however, that most experts believe the missiles remain untested. North Korea has also not successfully tested a long-range missile capable of hitting the mainland United States.
