North Korea Getting Very Close to Nuclear Missile According to South Korea

According to South Korea's defense minister, North Korea may have created a nuclear warhead small enough to be launched in a missile. This is a first for those nutters, who had previously only detonated two nuclear devices that were too big for rockets.
Today, a typical thermonuclear weapon weighs about 2,400 pounds (1,100 kg), and has a destructive capability of 1.2 megatons of TNT. Compare this to the 0.013 megatons of TNT of Little Boy, the 9,700-pound nuclear bomb dropped by Enola Gay over Hiroshima.
If South Korea is right, this type of warhead would allow North Korea to create missiles capable of reaching South Korea or Japan just few minutes after launch. These nuclear devices can use their current and tested rocket technology, completely destroying a city as large as Tokyo or Seoul.
North Korea is also working on a missile capable of reaching as far as the West Coast of the United States. According to NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) and USNORTHCOM (US Northern Command), Kim Jong Il and his cronies failed on testing such a rocket in April 2009. However, the Guardian later reportedthat North Korea may actually be able to reach Hawaii. Whatever the outcome of those tests was, what is clear that they will not stop at that failure.
Of course, South Korea has plenty of reasons to exaggerate and pressure the international community, but their neighbor's war efforts and defiant attitude is well known. And, not so long ago, the latter launched an unprovoked attack over the former.
What is clear is that, if true, this development bring very dark and frightening possibilities to the world. And Kim Jong Il legally changing his name to Kim Kaboom is only one of them. 


  1. Cool stuff man!! keep it up.

  2. That is frightening to hear, but I don't know how much propaganda it is from South-Korea.

  3. Well that is something we need? no w8 we don't

  4. I guess that is why people are saying that North Korea is best Korea.

  5. They would have no other place to test it than sending one over to South Korea, right?
    WWIII here we come.

  6. North Korea isn't a country stable enough for Nuclear Warheads, as far as their leader's sanity goes. They're quite a threat, especially when they're so desperate to have nuclear missiles that can reach anywhere in the globe.

    I hope someone teaches them the theory of nuclear deterrence and of the self-destruction that firing a missile on someone else would cause.

  7. Damn, it seems that showing 'Bend it like Beckham' in North Korea had less of a pacifistic factor than we thought! Seriously though, I don't like this piece of news...
