Late last week an un-named senior US military official was quoted (anonymously) as saying that North Korea now has the capability to launch missiles equipped with nuclear warheads. This isn’t the first time a US military source has said that North Korea has this capability.
The unnamed individual qualified this statement by saying that it was unclear if they had the technology to actually hit an intended target or for the weapon to survive reentry.
Of course, there is no mention of the fact that in order to deliver an EMP strike that could devastate the US there is no need for the weapon to reenter the atmosphere. Nor would they need to be able to hit a target any more precise that somewhere over the central US.
We live in very scary times folks…
