Skip to comments.Fox News: North Korea Capable of Arming Missile With Nuclear Warhead, According to Pentagon
Posted on 04/11/2013 8:20:30 PM PDT by drewh
A U.S. intelligence report concludes that North Korea has advanced its nuclear knowhow to the point that it could arm a ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead, a jarring revelation in the midst of bellicose threats from the unpredictable communist regime.
President Barack Obama urged calm, calling on Pyongyang to end its saber-rattling while sternly warning that he would "take all necessary steps" to protect American citizens.
The new American intelligence analysis, disclosed Thursday at a hearing on Capitol Hill, says the Pentagon's intelligence wing has "moderate confidence" that North Korea has nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles but that the weapon was unreliable.
Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., read aloud what he said was an unclassified paragraph from a secret Defense Intelligence Agency report that was supplied to some members of Congress. The reading seemed to take Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, by surprise, who said he hadn't seen the report and declined to answer questions about it.
The DIA conclusion was confirmed by a senior congressional aide who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Pentagon had not officially released the contents. The aide said the report was produced in March.

Now might be a good time for the boys in the Pentagon to toss their anti-Christian propaganda and dig out their rosaries.
U.S. intelligence stopped becoming intelligent Jan 2009
This looks like CYA time. Normally this kind of stuff is released on Friday evenings...
Obama would protect us? We would be better off with Kim Jong Un as our leader. Obama is disarming us and terrorizing citizens. At least Kim would give us all weapons and employment for all. (But no food...)
As evidenced by Hillary Clinton saying "What difference does it make?" - clowns running our government.
We may not make it to Friday evening.
Maybe Chairman Marty oughta start reading his e-mail? Especially stuff from the DIA.
At the rate their technology has advanced over the past couple of days, we’ll be hearing that they have nuke bases on the moon by Monday.
Does this mean he's going to take another vacation? Where to, this time?
This is the real news, and imagine what they will have 10 years from now.
But we have no serious discussion of eliminating these threats. Should have been done 10 or 20 years ago.
You speak the language of fools who’ve never served your country in the service of arms. The almighty Reagan “Cut & Ran”, after 241 of our bravest Marines were slaughtered in Beirut in 1985. Regan’s cowardice served as the catalyst for the killing of over 2,000 Americans duriing the attacks of 911.
Yeah, they’re capable of arming their warhead and then sending on a one way trip into the sea of Japan.
Sounds like a personal problem.
Sounds like a personal problem.
From what I understand, N Korea has between 50-200 of these warheads; and a small handful of nukes.
Drudge said yesterday we had the capability to intercept 3 of them (oh, nice hand tip to some genius on that one ..... libtards!).
So, all ol’Crazy-pants has to do is arm 1 or 2 and launch a dozen; and let us guess which one is loaded. Some are carrying dirt and rocks for payload, while the one’s that count are carrying some “bad news”.
Now, ask yourself - do you trust Obama to make the right call should a nuke go off? I mean, he took over 100 days to decide what to do about Osama Bin Laden. Then we have the incredible debt that has grounded several squadrons and is forcing us to keep from re-deploying some of our fleets. We have 2 wars on 2 fronts that don’t have clear exit strategies.
If we wipe out N. Korea over the weekend, then we have a nation of 50 Million souls without any skills other than knowing how to survive under a totalitarian regime. They have no clue as to how to think for themselves, grow their own food, produce anything or even govern their own cities.
Do you think Obama can make the right decision on any of these important issues? All we can do is hope that Kim’s crazy pills wear off soon.
Supposedly Reagan contemplated how many more marines would have been lost if we had gotten fully involved within the Lebanon Civil War. He did let one of the ole Battleships teach em a few lessons though.
