USA assesses NKorea can fit nuke inside a missile

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned North Korea it would be met with "fire and fury" if it threatens the United States. Japan, a key US ally, is also a potential target of North Korean aggression.

Haley praised both Russian Federation and China for the UN Security Council vote on North Korean sanctions.

It's the first time these missiles have been deployed on this type of platform since 2014, USA officials with knowledge of the latest intelligence in the region told Fox News on Monday. A total of 2,760 adults living in all 50 US states and the District of Columbia were surveyed, with a margin of error of plus or minus 1.9 percentage points.

If enforced, the measures could lop an estimated $1 billion annually off North Korea's meager export revenue of US$3 billion.

Republicans were more inclined than Democrats to say North Korea's nuclear program is "a threat to the U.S. that requires military action now", with 48% of surveyed Republicans and 22% of surveyed Democrats saying that reflects their views.

"North Korea had best not make any more threats to the United States".

Kazianis said it still is not clear whether North Korea has developed heat shield technology required to allow a missile to leave and re-enter the atmosphere.

Asked about the story on "Fox & Friends", U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said, "I can't talk about anything that's classified and if that's in a newspaper, that's a shame".

Navy personnel sit in front of a submarine-launched "Pukguksong" ballistic missile as it is paraded through Pyongyang, North Korea.

"He has been very threatening", he said of Kim Jong-Un.

The President's warning come amid reports that a US intelligence has concluded that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile as well as an intercontinental missile that can reach the USA.

"While sanctions have yet to slow North Korea's progress, increasing sanctions is the option that receives the most support from the American public [76 percent]".

North Korea's foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho, echoed the hostility later in a statement released at an annual meeting of foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Manila that also was attended by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats announced Friday increased efforts against these kinds of leaks Friday, which Sessions said were undermining "the ability of our government to protect this country". Cooperation from China and Russian Federation will be critical if the sanctions-which ban exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead ore, and seafood from the Asian country, and cap the number of North Korean workers abroad-are to be successful.

The Post said a separate intelligence assessment concluded the North has built up to 60 nuclear warheads, a number far larger than independent experts' estimates.
