North Korea now said likely to have deployable nuclear weapons already


Richard Engel and others at NBC have been reporting that North Korea may have a few dozen “advanced” (nuclear) weapons and could do an underground nuclear test this week.  The MSNBC story is here.  
 
Recently, a spokesperson for North Korea made a bald treat to obliterate South Korea with a quick invasion or aerial attack.  Such threats have been made before, but now the idea is taken more seriously since North Korea has a “new” president.

Some have suggested that North Korea could be capable of threatening Hawaii, Alaska, or the Pacific Northwest. 

The open report that North Korea may have small nukes now came as a surprise. 
 
A high altitude small nuke blast could cause an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) effect over a large, subcontinent-sized area.
