UPDATE:
"The U.S. administration “does not believe” North Korea has developed a nuclear warhead, an administration official tells CNN.

The statement comes after Rep. Doug Lamborn told the House Armed Services Committee that a study just completed by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency says North Korea may have nuclear weapons that could be delivered by ballistic missiles. "However, the reliability will be low," Lamborn said.

That intelligence was "mistakenly" marked unclassified, according to an administration and a defense sources."

"North Korea may have nuclear weapons that could be delivered by ballistic missiles, a congressman said.

Rep. Doug Lamborn quoted an assessment by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency during a House Intelligence Committee meeting: "'DIA assesses with moderate confidence the North currently has nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles. However, the reliability will be low.'" "

2. If they let one sucker go and it smashed into China or Japan it will be devastating.

This Korean leader seems to like the adrenaline rush he gets from baiting the USA. Problem is he'll just need more and more stimulus. He doesn't seem to know where 'the line' is. He's never been out of power. He's never known loss. He's never known war. He knows nothing except his own, and his family's narcissism. And he is already used to millions suffering for his actions.

4. If we (or China) think they are close to a nuke launch

I'd wager good money that one of us would hit it while its still on the pad. I'm actually shocked we haven't already done this

5. Why would China hit it?

The nuke wouldn't be aimed at them.

It would be aimed at China's best customers.

7. That tea bagging psycho (Doug Lambert) doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground!

 

Look at the list of defense contractors he's "owned by" in CO-5!

11. Welcome to "The Club" Mr. Un.

Welcome to the Big Boys Club Mr. Un. We weren't expecting you quite so soon. No matter however, nuclear missiles are the international equivalent of "busting your cherry". Welcome to having an actual vote at the table of nations. As you've always suspected, a mere fission bomb is all it takes. An H-bomb is just for bragging rights and, frankly, it's not worth the trouble. You see, the only atomic bombs ever used in wartime were no bigger than yours. Still, each killed over seventy thousand innocent people. It created more critical burn casualties than all the burn units on earth could possibly treat. And the RADIATION! You know, just the thought of CNN broadcasting video footage of people vomiting out their own teeth is enough to scare the world into leaving you be from now on (obviously what you had in mind). Got to hand it to you, a lot of us thought you were all bluff. But you showed them. So enjoy your newfound prestige. After all, we still measure the strength of a nation by how many innocent people you could kill, and you have clearly made the grade.
