    North Korea 'capable of attaching nuclear warheads to missiles'



    North Korea is now capable of attaching nuclear warheads to missiles but has not mastered hitting a target, a senior US defence official has said.

    Pyongyang has conducted a series of missile launches in the wake of its fourth nuclear test in January, despite international condemnation.

    Experts have concluded North Korea is able to make nuclear warheads small enough to arm Scud missiles, but it is unclear if they can put weapons on larger rockets which travel further and can deploy warheads from space.

    The defence official said: "Truthfully, they have the capability right now to be able to deliver a nuclear weapon, they are just not sure about re-entry, that's why they continue to test their systems out there."

    He added that he believed North Korea can already "mate" a missile with a warhead.

    Is this a concern?

    Should action be taken?


    Serious questions.

    But more importantly, WILL....action be taken?


    It'd turn the Seoul (aka the Killbox) and SK into a mess.

    Can the missile, once loaded with the truck sized warhead, actually go further than 200 metres?

    Desperately looking for an excuse for a preemptive strike.

    If they do that the Norths 4 million strong conventional army will be across the DMZ in days and will over-run the US missile sites and turn the missiles against the US while the Norths old subs will torpedo the US carrier that has launched the planes.

    So what to do now, bomb the South as well as the north to international condemnation.
    In 2 weeks fat boy will be in Seoul declaring it the new capital of a unified Korea.

    Any warring by either sides would lead to massive fatalities and unspeakable carnage.

    We know why Seoul is called the "Kill Box."

    The question remains can North Korea stop incoming missiles from a preemptive strike against their nuclear enrichment facilities and missile launch platforms.

    I believe the answer is 'No'.
    I'm sad for the future of the Korean people that must live and die under such a repressive regime.
    (But not that sad as to follow in Dennis Rodman's footsteps of basketball diplomacy.)

    Thaimeme, I'm a socialist in certain situations with dick-taters.

    I ask myself, "What would Josef Stalin do when faced with this matter?"
    Yup, works every time.

    They need to evacuate the northern half of South Korea - not kidding... the impact of any kicking off of matters will be truly awful, Japan too, needs to prepare for this... Fukuoka and other parts of Kyushu, might get rather full.

    I think I know what you're insinuating, but I do consider KJU to be a bogeyman.

    Why does everyone get so hot under the collar about North Koreas' Nuclear missiles? Having been built with the usual North Korean quality assurance, if launched, they're just as likely to land on Shanghai, the Mariana trench or Pyongyang.

    Pity, that the developed countries are not allowed to sell their weapons to NK.
    Otherwise, they could buy something more sophisticated:

    I guess there'd be a chance of hacking into their systems if they had any.

    Looking at the picture that wooden template could be at least a few 0.0001 mm out just due to humidity. Would it matter though?

    Sending a Carrier strike group is a way of sending a message.

    But could this be the real deal?

    What did Trump and Xi discuss?


    Sending US warships is to North Korea 'prudent', says US, as world braces for further missile tests

    America's decision to move a Navy strike group towards the Korean peninsula is a "prudent" reaction to a pattern of provocative behaviour from North Korea, the White House national security adviser said on Sunday, as the secretary of state insisted he was hopeful that China would put pressure on Pyongyang.

    The Pentagon announced late on Saturday that a Navy carrier strike group is moving toward the western Pacific Ocean to provide a physical presence near the Korean Peninsula. The carrier group includes the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, with support from several missile destroyers and missile cruisers.

    "It's prudent to do it, isn't it?" said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser.

    "This is a rogue regime that is now a nuclear-capable regime, and President Xi and President Trump agreed that that is unacceptable, that what must happen is the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."

    Is this really what Trump and Xinping discussed ?

    Wouldn't it simply "be prudent" and make more economic sense for China to do a couple of fly-overs from carriers based at the mouth of the Yalu ?
    (Missile strikes understanding 500 miles Beijing - Pyongyang)

    That area of the Korean Peninsula has many population centres of NK, SK, Japan and China located in close proximity...no place to be 'practicing' nuclear missile strikes or playing nuclear poker.

    What, is this going to be a tag-team event ?

    I did not mean to imply a strike was discussed but was curious as to what indeed, was discussed with regards to NK.

    This issue is heating up, IMO.

    Yes of course the NK tension in the region has existed for decades, but NK will have longer range ballistic missiles in the near future.

    This is why perhaps....something like a strike may be carried out - or not be.

    Wouldn't it simply "be prudent" and make more economic sense for China to do a couple of fly-overs from carriers based at the mouth of the Yalu ?
    (Missile strikes understanding 500 miles Beijing - Pyongyang)

    Yes, lots of population centers and I assume there would be massive casualties and destruction. Very ugly scenario.

    What, is this going to be a tag-team event ?
    I doubt it.

    Yeah, it's a concern; Fat Boy would sell nuclear technology to any terrorist group in a heart beat.

    Action? That's the problem. Clinton, Bush and Obama all waited for China to solve the problem. That's not gonna happen...

    Anybody state that never let in UN atomic commission, can sell nuclear technology to any terrorist group.
    BTW, where the terrorists (some call them "rebels") buy their powerful weapons from? E.g. The chemical ones?
