With fears of World War 3 looming in the minds of many, the Doomsday Clock has been pushed forward as the United States stands in the middle of tensions with North Korea and Seattle has now been cited as a major target for when North Korea has working missiles.
“There are missiles that are under development that will certainly be able to hit the West Coast and especially Seattle, which is an ultimate target. We are the ultimate target to hold hostage, from a North Korean perspective.”
You’ re pretty much on your own if North Korea hits #Seattle with a nuclear missile. https: //t.co/H1axmaF1Du

The reason Seattle is given as a North Korean missile target is multifold and includes its close proximity to the joint base Lewis-McChord, its Trident submarine base and Boeing. And given that it is also a major population center, many of Seattle’s citizens are on edge for fear of World War 3 with North Korea. Even Washington’s former Senator Slade Gorton agrees that action must be taken to stop North Korea from developing their nuclear program and missiles.
“As long as no one takes any action with North Korea, it will keep making itself more and more dangerous to us and everyone else in the world. North Korea is the single greatest challenge the United States faces today with respect to its own security. Bluntly, the United States today faces just one of two stark choices: Quit, effectively surrender, or take them out.”
“Gen. Michael Hayden: N Korea will make nuke capable of hitting Seattle! Situation will be dire as soon as they can hit a city worth saving.”
Are you concerned that the Doomsday Clock has been moved forward and do you think North Korea will try to use a missile to strike Seattle and bring about World War 3 if they are not stopped?
