los angeles - The American armed forces tried a long-distance raid on Wednesday in California. The Minuteman III rocket was fired on the Vandenberg Air Force Base northwest of Los Angeles and landed 6780 kilometers west of the American Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The US stresses that this has nothing to do with the North Korean trial with a long-distance racket last Friday. It was already the fourth test with such a rocket this year.
North Korea shot twice a long distance racket in July. The first time at the beginning of that month was a prime for North Korea. The missiles might be able to reach Alaska or even the California coast.
