US denies report North Korea already has nuclear missile capability

"While I cannot speak to all the details of a report that is classified in its entirety, it would be inaccurate to suggest that the North Korean regime has fully tested, developed, or demonstrated the kinds of nuclear capabilities referenced in the passage," said George Little, the Pentagon spokesman.

The US denial was followed quickly by the South Korean defence ministry, which said the North had still not developed a warhead small enough to place on top of a a missile.

"Our military's assessment is that the North has not yet miniaturised," ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told a news briefing.

"North Korea has conducted three nuclear tests but there is doubt whether it is at the stage where they can reduce the weight and miniaturise to mount on a missile."

NK boasting reminds me of that photo-shopped Iranian steal fighter in front of the mountain.

LOL.

From the article:

"it would be inaccurate to suggest that the North Korean regime has fully tested"

Of course the launch platforms and weapons aren't "fully tested". The missile system (Musudan) has never even been launched. This is word weaseling. There is still substantial danger. This isn't to say they can't put the thing together and conduct the first test on Guam or Tokyo.

Good point. Our first test of an air drop was on Hiroshima.

Correct, I keep forgetting that, even though we are a Hanford family from way back (Nagasaki material).

The DIA says they do, and Barry is saying he “ ... will take all necessary steps to protect (his adopted country) the USA” so, get your story straight, Pentagon.
The DIA is right there, and the Obama might happen to be between vacations.

Maybe this one of those, “Comrades! We have glorious news for you ... “ piles of warm horse-droppings?

You know that we can thank William Jefferson Blythe Clinton for North Korea's ability to put nukes on top of missles.
Remember this (?): Remember Globalstar Satellite Scam?
Yes, you can thank TRAITOR BILL CLINTON for North Korea's nuclear missile technology, and their capabilities.

And if one of those non-existent warheads hits the USA mainland, Obama will STILL not get blamed by the MSM.

Of course the launch platforms and weapons aren't "fully tested".

There are very few things in the world that are "fully tested." Do we test every single nuke by blowing it up, to see if it blows up? If not then it's not fully tested. Engineers believe that a device will work based on this and that indirect measurement; but the only truly full test is by exploding it.

Re: “Our first test of an air drop was on Hiroshima.”

That was also our first test of a uranium-based gun type bomb.

The bomb dropped on Nagasaki was an implosion type plutonium device, which had been tested in the desert about 3 weeks prior.

Kim Jong Fatso is the joke. Are the Norkie generals really ready to sacrifice their perks, privileges, medals, and most of all their awesome HATS, for the sake of Kim Jong Il’s grandson’s personal pride?

They’re communists, fer goodness sake! This life is all they’ve got. Throw it all away for little Pudgie’s sake? I don’t think so.

Probably the same clowns who haven’t got a clue about what happened in Benghazi.

The U.S. and other intelligence agencies have been surprised before.

‘The U.S. and other intelligence agencies have been surprised before.’........

And THAT my friend, is NO SURPRISE. Our country has been soooooo dumbed down these past few years, we have put ourselves in the cross-hairs of every madman from around the world and NO ONE here is leading.

Should a REAL WAR start tomorrow, name one Admiral, General or real “leader” (leave Odumbo out) that is capable of sterring the ship?
