Best estimates say NK has 4 or 5 nuclear warheads & between 12 & 21 missiles with a range of up to 10,000 miles capable of delivering them.
Its highly doubtful that they have the capability to launch a missile swarm concealing their 4 or 5 nukes.

I suspect they'd have a better chance putting them aboard freighters & sailing them into western ports rather than pooping of missiles that in all likelihood would be intercepted.

Theyre acquiring their misssile tech from Russia/China..
Russia has an ABM system
You think NK dont know ABM systems exist?
Dont think NK would dare ask the Russians about strategies to circumvent?

As I said best estimates are they have only 4 or 5 nukes with very few missiles capable of delivering them.

I'm not the least bit worried about NK. There will be a war but it will happen with Venezuela. Nicolas Maduro has started listing oil prices in Chinese Yuan, which means he just signed his death warrant.

I'm almost surprised at how belligerent they are given the proximity& track record of US interventions in Central/SAmerica..

I'm not sure the endless needling by Trump over Twitter is helping the situation. It seems to me that Trump is antagonizing N. Korea in hopes of getting them to act first and try something stupid so that he can back up his rhetoric with military action.
Personally, I think Trump is needling NK in hopes of demonstrating to the UN just how unstable NK is, so he can get international support. I don't think he really wants war with NK (or at least those advising him don't really want war with NK). The political and economic fallout would be absolutely disastrous.

The problem for Trump though is that his attempt to show NK's instability is also serving to highlight his own instability. Anyone who wants to re-start (or hints about re-starting) the Korean conflict has got to be a special kind of stupid.

Headline today in several news services is that NK missed last B-1b flyby. Now they are scrambling to beef up their east coast defences. Which is what we want. The real punch, if it comes to that, fill be B-2 and cruise missiles heading in from the west coast of Korea.

I'm not actually sure what the game plan is, or if he even has one. He seems too busy fighting with the NFL at the moment to worry about a nuclear armed nation that thinks we are at war.

The game plan is to take on the NFL and NBA--they are a much bigger threat.

You all can post on here AND work at the same time?

Then why can't the president, who apparently needs little to no sleep, address domestic issues as well as international ones???

Granted, I wish he used a bit more tact, but New York and all . . .

To me this is all just a joke.. our whole govn-military-industrial setup is a joke
North Korea would never purposefully hit us with nuke unprovoked
(it would be the end of their lil puppet ginseng republic immediately)
tantamount to committing suicide.. who the hell wants to do that?
given the above, given North Korea is no longer provoked, North and South will by slow osmosis begin to reunite/talk/deal/whatever

this is what we want right? PEACE? coming-together?
no.. our defense industry needs enemies ALL OVER THE GLOBE and to be able to sell arms and equipment because of "threats" which dont really exist but MSM leads you to think there are
remember generals without a war are what? pencil-pushing desk clerks
militrary industrial factories without orders are ? not making profits!

If Christ returned this very moment on his "second-coming" tour concert and viewed this "Christian" country of ours what would he think? LOL
hipocrasy.. Christian soldiers of the second Roman Empire w/ regalia of the eagle and everything

You're not nearly as insane as your name implies.

I too feel that if Jesus returned he'd be horrified with what he sees. There would be some serious smiting of biblical proportion going on.

I'd think they'd try to drone him after labeling Him a "terrorist"
