CNN is reporting that a new study conducted by an agency under the U.S. Department of Defense claims that North Korea may have a nuclear warhead that has the potential to be launched on a ballistic missile, which comes as a surprise because no one really thought they had these types of weapons yet. The warhead itself apparently does not have great accuracy, but it can be fired.

"Quoting from the unclassified portion, which I believe has not yet been made public, they say, quote, 'DIA assesses with moderate confidence the North currently has nuclear weapons capable of delivering by ballistic missiles. However, the reliability will be low.'" Lamborn told Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, who was testifying before the committee.
This comes after North Korea "prepares" its Musudan missiles to be launched. A U.S. intelligence official said that the missile they were allegedly going to "test" was raised to an upright launching position, but then another U.S. intelligence official stated that the same missile was placed back into its launcher. I suppose that this is a scare tactic to antagonize the international community, as Kim Jon-Un knows that the world is closely watching his country's every move.
