Not good.

Also, for all of those who said "if we're going into Iraq because we think they're trying to get nuclear weapons, why aren't we going into North Korea, who we're pretty sure already has them?" your thesis and this recent report offer your explanation. We can't treat North Korea the way we treated Iraq precisely because they already had them, whether they would admit it or not.

The problem is, their border with South Korea is within artillery range of Seoul, South Korea—meaning that even if we took out all of their missiles, all they'd need to do is put one warhead on one artillery shell, and wipe out the South Korean capital.

And the people who make this argument are the same ones who refuse to acknowledge the good offered by the bunker-buster technology the DoD is trying to develop—the mini-nukes that would allow us to take out any underground warhead storage.
