North Korea said Wednesday it had achieved its goal of becoming a nuclear state after successfully testing a new intercontinental ballistic missile that put the “whole mainland of the US” within its range.
SEE HIGHLIGHTED UPDATE BELOW -- In a brutally blunt statement about the growing North Korea threat to the United States, Senator Lindsay Graham, appearing on CNN "The Situation Room" with Wolf Blitzer discussing today's ICBM launch by North Korea said "If we have to go to war over this, we will."
It is important to note that Congress (The US House and Senate) is the ONLY branch of the US Government which has the authority to Declare War. When men like him start saying things like this on TV, people had better prepare.

As of 9:09 PM EST today, reports are now coming out from North Korean officials saying to "expect a 7th nuclear test detonation."
Previously, North Korean officials said they were only two steps away from completing their needed testing:
