Once the US Open campaign began attacking North Korea, Pyongyang will surely respond with nuclear weapons aimed at South Korea, Japan and U.s. bases in the area.
One of the reasons the U.S. Government avoids interfering in the situation in North Korea is by the power of destruction that Pyongyang could use if war broke out.
The people of South Korea and Japan are the principal victims once Washington provoke Pyongyang to war.
“If war breaks out, there is no way America can prevent the terrible damage in South Korea and Japan devastated ability significantly,” Vasily Kashin, expert in strategic analysis Center and Russian technologies speaks with National Interest.
“This will become a humanitarian disaster, an earthquake for the world economy. South Korea currently has 24-25 is located in the reactor of the nuclear power plant. Meanwhile, North Korea has hundreds of missiles, it is difficult to intercept, “said Kashin identified.
The missiles in Pyongyang’s arsenal capable of hitting most targets on the soil of South Korea and Japan After the military parade on 15 April, North Korean missiles even have enough ability to penetrate America’s defenses and allies.
“2,000 short-range ballistic missiles by North Korea is always ready to fire missiles, including Scud and Nodong-02, KN,” Professor Jeffrey Lewis came from Middlebury International Research Institute said.
North Korea has extended range Scud missiles with up to 1,000 km, while the Nodong ballistic missiles can hit targets 1,200 km. Mr Lewis said the rocket, Pyongyang can meet the technical malfunctioning but still enough number can cause substantial losses to South Korea and Japan.
In the future, North Korea continued to manufacture Scud missile improvements to increase the number of combat-ready missiles. “Scud missile manufacturing costs cheaper than the Nodong lots should be the backbone of the strategic missile forces of North Korea,” Mr. Lewis explained.
In case war broke out, North Korea more likely will use nuclear weapons to the downside from conventional weapons. Military of North Korea generally inferior to us and so many allies, but nuclear weapons back to the force.
“Right from the first days of the outbreak of the war, North Korea ready for nuclear blow Christmas aimed at u.s. forces in South Korea and Japan,” Mr. Lewis said. The U.S. report estimated, the number of people killed if North Korea uses nuclear blow can be up to millions of people.
Unclear how much ownership of the North Korean nuclear weapons but is definitely Pyongyang captures weapons of destruction.
Moreover, Pyongyang about to perfect the ability to shrink a nuclear weapon to fit into the ballistic missiles. “That is the goal of the 5-time nuclear test on last year, to create a miniature nuclear weapons standards, all mounted missile warhead,” Mr. Lewis explained.
World experts have yet to determine the exact number of nuclear weapons that North Korea possesses. “It is difficult to say,” said Lewis. “More than 10 numbers, less than 100. But perhaps is almost 10 more than 100 “.
