The West consistently and unwittingly cooperates with North Korea and Iran by underestimating the advancement, sophistication, and strategic implications of their nuclear weapon and missile programs.
Despite North Korea's successful long-range missile test in December 2012, and now its third successful nuclear test on February 12, 2013, the Obama administration and the press keep reassuring the American people that North Korea is not yet a fully fledged nuclear weapons state - that a North Korean nuclear missile threat to the United States is still years in the future.
The facts do not support this judgment. North Korea is already a major nuclear threat to the United States--an existential threat.
Common wisdom in the press, encouraged by the Obama Administration and North Korea, is that North Korea has not yet miniaturized nuclear warheads for missile delivery, and that its nuclear tests are in pursuit of designing a nuclear missile warhead. Indeed, the Obama administration and the western press both naively took at face value and parroted North Korea's public claim that their third nuclear test is for nuclear warhead miniaturization.
Yet this claim is almost certainly disinformation designed to conceal that North Korea's nuclear weapon program is advanced far beyond warhead miniaturization. Miniaturization to develop a nuclear warhead is not difficult to do, and can be accomplished even without nuclear testing.

This astronautics prof says North Korea’s December 2012 ICBM satellite launch was more advanced than the media and US gov’t sources are saying. Watch his video starting around the 15:00 minutes mark.
“Professor of Astronautics Mike Gruntman uses principles of ASTE 520 Spacecraft Design to look at the North Korea satellite launch on December 12, 2012.”
This is a MUST READ.. Small EMP bomb could already be in orbit ready for drop. American’s nearly all ASSUME we are technologically immune to a NOKO punk. The threat is real and imminent.
A chilling analysis, plausible and apocalyptic.
Everyone should read ‘One Second After’.
Who do you believe. 0bama ... or Israeli intelligence?
I’m not sure if an EMP bomb turning off our federal government would be such a bad thing.
I don’t know who she is or what crime she’s been accused of, but I say definitely not guilty.
Google ‘Ziva David’.
Israel National News is a serious news agency. Kinda like news used to be in the old days.
I’m not buying it.
However, the gap between implausible and probable, as presented in the article, is disturbingly small.
“Everyone should read One Second After.”
You’re kidding, right? I put more trust in the Israelis than the Obama administration, and I’m not kidding.
Quickgun just felt an EMP. Watch out for drooling from orbit...
And I think the two coordinate. North Korea is acting up because they think we are about to attack Iran.
They are trying to split our attention. And hoping to cause us to fear a two sided war.
