Analysis: N. Korean Sneak Attack on Seoul Possible

Foreign Confidential™ analysts believe that North Korea, while readying its next nuclear test, may also be preparing to launch a spectacular sneak attack on South Korea's capital, Seoul, following the North's threat to reduce the South Korean government to ashes within minutes.

Analysts say the attack possibilities include aerial assaults involving ballistic missiles or airplanes, suicide bombings, and a bomb strike using smuggled explosives, including a radiological (dirty) bomb.

An attack by the North on the South "by unprecedented peculiar means and methods" would be designed to avoid a confrontation with U.S. forces, analysts say. The United States has approximately 30,000 troops stationed in South Korea.
