The window of opportunity for halting North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missiles program is rapidly closing.
The north already has 30 nuclear warheads, and is working flat out to produce as many more as possible.
“In just three years, the North’s unpredictable leader, Kim Jong-un, will control sufficient fissile material to double that arsenal to as many as 60 weapons, says the Institute for Science and International Security in Washington.”
“The bottom line is that North Korea has an improving nuclear weapons arsenal,” said David Albright, founder and director of the Institute for Science and International Security. “The last several years have witnessed a dramatic and overt buildup in North Korea’s nuclear weapons capabilities.”
The numbers show that North Korea is becoming a true nuclear power with the ability to hit its neighbors and, one day, the U.S.
