Experts Say N. Korea Can Nuke S. Korea and Japan
Arms experts say North Korea is capable of firing nuclear-tipped missiles at South Korea and Japan, but probably not yet capable of nuking targets in the United States.
The article overlooks the North's test-firing of ballistic missiles from cargo vessels.
Additionally, Pyongyang and its partner in nuclear and missile crimes, Iran, are suspected of working on a Fractional Orbital Bombardment System, which could create a path over the South Pole for a nuclear ICBM or satellite/warhead attack on the U.S.
Is there a Deterrent?
Key question: what … exactly … is the deterrent against a North Korean nuclear attack on the U.S. homeland or overseas bases, or on U.S. allies?
Considering the unprecedented threats by North Korea to strike the U.S. homeland with nuclear weapons … and the trillions of taxpayer dollars spent on U.S. defense … don't the American people deserve an answer to the above question?
Diplomacy and sanctions have failed to stop the rogue states' atomic advances and aggressive moves. Perhaps it's time for a radically different approach--say, a little less Jimmy Carter and a lot more Al Capone. He would have known how to deal … and do away … with menacing, threatening gangsters.
