What about the 28,500 american troops that are stationed in South Korea? I don't think they'd need a long range missile to hit them. There was a guy on Fox News lastnight saying; that he believed it was more likely that they'd share this technology with terrorists and smuggle a bomb here piece by piece.

I fear the nearest target would be South Korea & the 30,000 Americans living there. Possibly?

Sorry OmTE, I need to just jump in here for a minute to make a statement as the post were written by me. You may add anything you like in your own response.
Jeb, If you had actually carefully read my post which were post#4571 and 4587 you would see that I said that I didn't know what weapons they actually had and I used the word several times, IF, if they actually had nuclear capabilities that would change the whole picture. They would then become a serious threat and IF N. Korea did not retract the statements that they were going to nuke us then I would probably make a first strike.
Remember it would take but one nuclear explosion 150 miles high above the U.S. to cause an EMP to destroy most if not all of our electrical and electronic systems. How would you like to go without electricity for 4 to 5 years? Think what would happen to our country. The thought of this happening is intolerable.
I happened to come across this article today which might unnerve you somewhat but give it a read. It is a distinct possibility.

and you base this on a fox news story?maybe they do have have a gun.but just look at how many times that they have threatened to take back south korea,how has that worked for them?do you know that,on average,a south korean is 2" taller than a north korean?our current policy is working.side by side labratories,capatalism vs. communism,we win.it is an idle threat.again, can we afford to maintain some world order?if so, what exactly is this world order?

They could do that anytime with the conventional weapons that they have. N.Korea probably has the largest number of heavy artillery batteries in the world. Their shells can easily reach many areas of S. Korea. They have a million man army which would be pretty hard to stop if they came charging across the border into the south. If they wanted to really hurt S.Korea and our forces they could have done that at any time. The oriental thought would be not to cut off the tail of the snake but to cut off the head, which would be a direct hit on the U.S.
You do realize that the U.S. would also have to fight Iran at the same time. Russia and would just arm them and watch with great delight. China would not like N.Korean refuges but would probably give aid to the North.
I think their favorite target would be the good ole U.S.A. That is what they have said, and I believe them.

The point is they made a threat and we're a dam fool if we underestimate anyone. I'd give their a$$ a deadline to retract or be annihilated. We invaded Iraq on the assumption that they had WMD. These people have already set off three miniature bombs. That's why the sanctions are in place. Who will be held accountable if they blow up the troops in South Korea?

The article posted was just something to think about as I had already wondered about the same thing myself. Even that article doesn't know what the N.Koreans really have and they are just looking at what could be, just as I have done.
Just remember never judge a book by its cover. If you do you are going to get burnt.

I don't think they would want to destroy S.Korea because the South is so prosperous and has such good manufacturing facilities, technology and a very progressive capitalistic society. This is worth billions of dollars to them. They would want to capture S.Korea whole and mostly unharmed which would give the North a huge leap into the modern world of technology and it's society.
This is how I would look at it, but I really have no idea how the North is looking at it. They aren't totally stupid.

The U.S. would have to use the neutron bomb or some of its newer high tech weapons to assure there would be no radiation in the South.

That's correct if they tell our guys to get the hell out of there before they level the place.
