My Way News - SKorea: North Korea moved missile to east coast
The missile in question is thought to have a range of about 3000 km, which puts US bases in Japan and S. Korea in range. Kim Jong Un has been dialing up the heat on an almost daily basis, and there is all sorts of speculation as to what it means, including the idea that Un might not be in control of his military.SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korea has moved a missile with "considerable range" to its east coast, South Korea's defense minister said Thursday, but he added that there are no signs that Pyongyang is preparing for a full-scale conflict.
The report came hours after North Korea's military warned that it has been authorized to attack the U.S. using "smaller, lighter and diversified" nuclear weapons. It was the North's latest war cry against America in recent weeks. The reference to smaller weapons could be a claim that Pyongyang has improved its nuclear technology. Or a bluff.
...Hecker has estimated that North Korea has enough plutonium to make several crude nuclear bombs. Its announcement Tuesday that it would restart a plutonium reactor indicated that it intends to produce more nuclear weapons material.
