IHT: U.S. doesn't fear North Korean missile: "U.S. doesn't fear North Korean missile

WASHINGTON North Korea's reported readiness to deploy a new mobile ballistic missile represents a worrisome increase in that nation's military capacity, according to U.S. officials, but they say the weapon could not reach the continental United States.

The missile could be hidden inside freighters to be sailed closer to U.S. shores for launching, but officials expressed doubts that the missile was developed for that purpose. North Korea does not have a submarine capable of carrying the missile to within striking range of the continental United States.

'There is no way this can hit the mainland,' a U.S. official said in an interview, speaking on condition of anonymity."
