On March 6, North Korea tested the new administration in Washington for a second time by simultaneously launching four ballistic missiles, which Pyongyong claims can be mounted with nuclear warheads. Three of them landed just 200 miles shy of Japan's coastline. A month earlier, the rogue nation had sent a mid-range missile hurtling eastward, traveling just over 300 miles before dropping into the Sea of Japan. January was no less eventful. The supreme leader, Kim Jong Un, promised in his new year's address that North Korea would soon be testing its first interncontinetal ballistic missile—one capable of reaching the United States' West Coast.
