Pentagon: North Korea Could Launch Nuclear Missile

WASHINGTON – 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.

  1. So,Mr Obama wants North Korea to calm down and take every possible step to protect Americans in that country.
    Is he nuts!
    Liberals thought George W Bush was nuts when he said that Iran and North Korea are evil.
    What countries are threating nuclear war?
    That’s right boys and girls,Iran and North Korea.
    I say we get all Americans out of North Korea and start hitting their military bases like we did in the middle east.Maybe Kim Young Punk will get the message loud and clear then, and go play his video games and behave himself like a “nice little boy”.
