Default OT - Regarding North-Korea

Firstly this is NOT a political debate.

Anyway...I was wondering if anyone has info regarding what kind of nukes this country has?

Range,yield,how many etc....

I think North Koreas nuclear capacity is as follows

number of warheads : 0
( but could possibly make 1 evey 6-12 months )

yield : 20- 40 kt ( twice or trippel Hiroshima bombs)

range : 0 meter
(their bombs are all built in place )

I dont know about the nukes, I read this story

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asi...ic/8069457.stm

which in short shows that they have and are testing long range rockets presumably to deploy the warheads. Rather worrying I think.

North Korea is not capable of deploying a nuclear warhead via missile -ther are no warheads !

They are ,however , capable of creating a nuclear chain reaction and setting of a bomb for testing .These are not weapon grade munitions though .

Quite possibly there will be a North Korean Nuclear missile in the near future .

There are missiles today , but no nukes that could be used with them .

If and when they have bomb transportable it will not be done as we think about, via missile or bomber. Think low tech, what they are doing now is posturing. The only reason they have been testing missile is to take focus of how else such a bomb could be transported to it target.

It kinda like Soviet Union to build hundreds of military airstrips, hangers, and the Anti-Aircraft measures and missile silos for their Air Force and Startegic Rocket forces. In many the aircraft at the airfields were just frames that would be moved from time to time, while the real aircraft were moved from base to base, and the operational aircraft were used for that too. It was all show them game they played, and the type of game they have always been good at.

What is scarier is China and Russia are allowing their client State to do such posturing. Then again great cover. Oh well.

If it wasn't for the likely deaths of huge numbers of civilians I would welcome some sort of military end game to the existance of North Korea as an independent state. Their leadership hasn't made a whole lot of sense during my whole lifetime. Much as I hate to say it a small part of me would like to see those idiots do something rash and bring destruction down upon themselves. Germany got to be one Germany again. It is way past time that Korea had the same happen to it.

Currently I feel the DPRK may have enough fuel for 3 fission devices. None of these devices would be deployable via missile of aircraft. The only way they could be used militarily now is in conjunction with a massive assault across the DMZ into Seoul and Inchon and by moving the bombs into those cities by truck. This would give the DPRK leadership millions of instantly incineratable hostages in such a situation.

However I do not feel that is the goal of these tests. The goal IMO is International sale of missile and nuclear technology.
