‘Matter of very short time’ before N. Korea has capability to send nuke to US – Pentagon

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford told Congress that the US should assume that North Korea already has the capability to attack the US with a nuclear weapon, and plan accordingly.

It is the US military’s judgement that it is a matter of a “very short time” before North Korea is able to attack the US, Dunford told Senators of the Armed Services Committee on Tuesday.

“We should assume now that they have the capability,” although there are still some technical details that the North is working on, he said, adding that Pyongyang has already demonstrated the willingness to use the weapon.
