DPRK missiles could reach Michigan some day (Economist)

The May 28-June 3 issue of The Economist has a couple of disturbing stories,

One of them concerns North Korea’s missiles.   A KN-08 in development would have a range of 9000 KM and could reach the US mainland northwest.  An enhance version could, along the great circle, reach as far east as Detroit, and as far as New Mexico on the southern US border.

There is also a 14-page report on the Syrian refugee crisis in Europe (and Kenya), but it tends to stress problems only on a macro level, as to how governments can house and try to train huge numbers of people, many of whom will not be allowed to stay if they don’t assimilate.
