North Korea capable of producing a nuke every 6 weeks

Recommended Posts

From the New York Times

Behind the Trump administration’s sudden urgency in dealing with the North Korean nuclear crisis lies a stark calculus: a growing body of expert studies and classified intelligence reports that conclude the country is capable of producing a nuclear bomb every six or seven weeks.

That acceleration in pace — impossible to verify until experts get beyond the limited access to North Korean facilities that ended years ago — explains why President Trump and his aides fear they are running out of time. For years, American presidents decided that each incremental improvement in the North’s program — another nuclear test, a new variant of a missile — was worrisome, but not worth a confrontation that could spill into open conflict.

In six weeks it will be less than 11...

In twelve weeks it will be less than 12...

More than zero is too many. How did we get to the point where we let a guy like this have any.

It happened when the U.S. policy became "strategic patience". 
I'll leave it up to you to determine when that was adopted. :)

The other point is they have no long range icbm to put them on. Farthest they can go is Japan.

Their 3 stage ICBM has been successfully launched (tested). 
It's the last 2 single-stage Scuds that blew up... gee, I wonder how that happened???

Like i said they havent got one....

One what?  They have 20 nuclear devices.  They have a large number of Scuds.  They have an ICBM. 
They are working on a miniature warhead. They are having a problem with their "Polaris" type missile.
