Army Report Says North Korea has Nukes

Could have as many as 100 nuclear devices by the end of the year.

The U.S. Army has published its “North Korean Tactics” assessment that says they believe North Korea has 20-60 nuclear weapons, the capacity to create six new bombs each year, and a stockpile of as much as 5,000 tons of 20 different chemical weapons. It also added that it does not believe the government in Pyongyang will ever surrender the weapons in order to maintain its survival.

“North Korea sought nuclear weapons because its leaders thought the threat of a nuclear attack would prevent other countries from contemplating a regime change,” the report reads. “External powers intervened in Libya when the domestic revolts began in 2011. The Kim family does not want something similar to happen in North Korea.”

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un witnessed the demise of Libya’s Muammar Gadhafi and “does not want something similar to happen in North Korea.”

In addition to the estimate of as many as 60 nuclear devices, the Army report noted other accounts that North Korea could obtain as many as 100 by the end of the year. The Army also believes North Korea has stockpiled biological weapons.

“North Korea possibly has weaponized anthrax or smallpox that could be mounted on missiles for use,” the report said, adding that 1 kilogram of anthrax could kill up to 50,000 people in the 10-million strong South Korean capital, Seoul.

North Korea also maintains a Cyber Warfare Guidance Unit with more than 6,000 hackers operating in countries such as Belarus, China, India, Malaysia, and Russia. They can “successfully conduct invasive computer warfare activities from the safety of its own territory,” the report said. “It has the distributed ability to reach targeted computers anywhere in the world, as long as they are connected to the Internet.”
