Internal U.S. intelligence reports out today confirm that North Korea does indeed have nuclear warheads that can be used in its missiles. The threat that many feared North Korea would be has come to fruition, and the U.S. might have no other choice but to preemptively deal with the problem.
The reports also show that North Korea might have as many as 60 nuclear warheads, poised and ready to signal the start of World War III.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has made no secret of the fact that he wants to take some other countries down a few notches, and the United States is right at the top of his list.
The Washington Post reported on this disturbing turn of events on the North Korea nuclear threat.
North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, U.S. intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment.
The new analysis completed last month by the Defense Intelligence Agency comes on the heels of another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country’s atomic arsenal. The U.S. calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Some independent experts believe the number of bombs is much smaller.
The findings are likely to deepen concerns about an evolving North Korean military threat that appears to be advancing far more rapidly than many experts had predicted. U.S. officials last month concluded that Pyongyang is also outpacing expectations in its effort to build an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking cities on the American mainland.
President Trump has made no bones about his intention to keep America safe, no matter the cost.
(WP) In an interview broadcast Saturday on MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt Show, national security adviser H.R. McMaster said the prospect of a North Korea armed with nuclear-tipped ICBMs would be “intolerable, from the president’s perspective.”
“We have to provide all options . . . and that includes a military option,” he said. But McMaster said the administration would do everything short of war to “pressure Kim Jong Un and those around him, such that they conclude it is in their interest to denuclearize.”
We can hope and pray that we’re not thrown into all out war with the petty dictator Kim Jong-un and the people he has enslaved, but if that does become the case, it would decrease our possible loss of life if we throw the first nuclear punch. No one wants to see innocents die, but it’s America’s first priority that Americans not die. The knowledge that a country who openly threatens us has a nuke, ready to go, is knowledge that should make us brace for a war that we have the responsibility to win.
