The article says that Seongju is sufficiently far enough from the North Korean border to be out of range of Pyongyang’s high-caliber multiple rocket launchers.

The Korea Herald said selecting Seongju as the deployment site for the THAAD system could lead to criticism that the location leaves the metropolis around Seoul, home to 20 million people, vulnerable. But it noted the government has budgeted to acquire PAC-3 Patriot missiles to deploy around the nation’s capital by 2018.

Like I said - THAAD has been positioned too far south to prevent an attack on Seoul. It suggests, therefore, that that is not the prime objective of the THAAD deployment.

THAAD deployed in Seongju covers most of the major air bases and lines of communication and supply in the country. It also places the THAAD battery beyond the range of many of the North’s more proven weapons, such as its long range artillery and even the KN-02 ER,”

A former high-ranking South Korean military officer told NK News under the condition of anonymity that in terms of strategy Seoul would not be a top defense priority in case of attack. “During a possible war with North Korea, places like Yongsan, where South Korea’s Defense Ministry and U.S. Forces Korea’s headquarters are located, would be the North’s primary target for strikes. So once there is chance of an outbreak of war is certain, every major office and VIP would evacuate.”

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
