Title: N. Korea successfully miniaturizes nuclear warheads, officials say

North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead to mount on a ballistic missile, according to a new report.

The assessment from the Defense Intelligence Agency, reported Tuesday by The Washington Post, puts Pyongyang closer than ever before to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power capable of striking the United States with a nuclear weapon, something it has often threatened to do.

The development raises the stakes for President Trump, who has vowed that he will not allow North Korea to obtain a nuclear weapon that can strike the U.S.

Still, officials and experts have said that North Korea has yet to cross key technological hurdles with its nuclear program, including building a re-entry vehicle that can withstand traveling through the atmosphere and developing the guidance and control systems to accurately and reliably target its missiles.

The intelligence analysis reported on by the Post was dated July 28, the same day North Korea carried out its second intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test.

“The [intelligence community] assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles,” the assessment says, according to the Post, which was read the excerpt.

The Defense Intelligence Agency and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to comment to the Post.

The assessment tracks with Japan’s annual defense white paper, also released Tuesday, which said that it’s “possible” North Korea has miniaturized a nuclear warhead, as well as warnings from U.S. officials of the grave threat from Pyongyang.

The July 28 analysis also comes after another Defense Intelligence Agency assessment, first reported by the Post, that found North Korea could have a reliable nuclear-capable ICBM as early as next year, two years earlier than previously estimated.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has pursued an aggressive testing schedule; he carried out two nuclear tests in 2016 and has conducted more than a dozen missile tests this year.

In July, North Korea conducted its first two ICBM tests. The second test appeared to show that the continental United States is now within its range.

Yet video captured by a Japanese weather camera showed the missile’s re-entry vehicle breaking up during descent, suggesting North Korea does not yet have the capability to carry out a strike.

In mid-July, Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman Gen. Paul Selva also said the “North Koreans have yet to demonstrate the capacity to do the guidance and control that would be required” to strike the United States “with any degree of accuracy or reasonable confidence of success.”

U.S. officials have been warning of the pace of North Korea’s progress for months.

On Sunday, national security adviser H.R. McMaster said in an interview on MSNBC that “it’s impossible to overstate the danger” posed by North Korea.

The day prior, the United Nations voted 15-0 to impose tough new sanctions on North Korea in hopes of halting the progress.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has also indicated the United States is open to talks with North Korea, but only if it halts its missile tests.

“The best signal that North Korea could give us that they’re prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches,” Tillerson said Monday at a security conference in the Philippines. “We’ve not had an extended period of time where they have not taken some type of provocative action by launching ballistic missiles.”

Kim Jong Fat Kid is nuts. He is like giving a fully loaded Thompson to a Chimpanzee. If China wants to avoid a big mess, they should go to N Korea for a meeting with Fat Boy. If anybody can get in close, it would be them. When the meeting starts, pull out a couple 12ga with 00 Buck, and light him up, and everybody with him. If they do not, I think Trump is going to light him up.

What the repercussions & reactions will be, we can only guess. We should all pray hard, and often for Divine Intervention, to take out the little fart, and to guide China & Trump, and others to take the appropriate action, and to protect these united States and our citizens. Oh, and to Bill & Shitlerly for giving the Norks their first nuclear reactor, here is a big F*CK YOU !!! I hope you two rot in hell !!!

When we're finally forced to destroy KimFatFuk, I hope the administration has in place a plan to make it clear that Odumbass did nothing but kick the can down the road for eight years - and do a Powerpoint on Madeline Halfbright kissing Kim Jong Il's ass.

I'd like to shove one of those ugly broaches right up her withered barack.

Have you noticed that the MSM, political commentators, and even members of Congress are strangely silent on what to do about North Korea? No demands on the President. No advice. No warnings. No nothing.

All of these f**king cowards are waiting for Trump to act so they can criticize whatever he does.

If we act against North Korea it would be an act of war. So Trump can tell Congress right now that he will be expecting them to declare it. After all, ever since Trump was sworn in Congress has been hinting at taking away the President's war powers.

Congress wants the responsibility? They can have it and THEY will be held accountable to the American people.

Yeah, they are a worthless bunch. We need to load all of them up, take them to NK, air drop them with Dennis Rodman, all wearing signs that say " Kim Jong Fatfuk is a shit head, and he sucks pigs ". When the door opens, shove McTurd out first. Let Kim Jong Fat Fuk take them out, with AA guns.

Or, if you feel really mean & cruel, dump them off on a uninhabited island with Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney, and Rosa DeLauro. LOL

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
