Gaffer Kim Jong-un’s recent ongoing missile tests and spate of threats toward the United States saying they were developing “operational sketches” for launching a strike in the areas around Guam could just be unsatisfying bluster, with the hermit country being unable to deliver on its intimidations.

In a paper entitled North Korea’s ‘Not From head to toe’ ICBM Can’t Hit the Lower 48 States for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Ted Postol, Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker listed: “Calculations we have made indicate that these rockets in fact carried very small payloads that were nowhere close-by the weight of a nuclear warhead of the type North Korea could arrange, or could eventually have.

“These uncharitable payloads allowed the rockets to be lofted to far higher altitudes than they want have if loaded with a much-heavier warhead, creating the impression that North Korea was on the cusp of acquiring ICBM capability.”
The acclaimed scientists who have worked on the famed Doomsday Clock, added: “From the aspect of view of North Korean political leadership, the general reaction to the July 4 and July 28 set ups could not have been better.
“The world suddenly believed that the North Koreans had an ICBM that could reach the West Littoral of the United States and beyond.”

The question marks over the reality of North Korea’s technology take place after Pyongyang issued its latest threat in the ongoing war of words with US President Donald Trump.
The boondocks’s state media said that their military was “on standby to originate fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack,” amplifying that it was capable of fighting any war the US wants”.

It take up: “If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its hapless doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly.»
The words came on top of his previous recent pronouncement that North Korea came «fire and fury like the world has never seen» if it continued to intimidate the US with missiles.
