Experts say North Korea is probably years away from perfecting the technology to back up its bold threats of a pre-emptive nuclear strike on America, but some aren't sure about nearby targets like South Korea and Japan.
North Korea vowed on Thursday to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the United States, amplifying its threatening rhetoric as U.N. diplomats voted on whether to level new sanctions against Pyongyang for its recent nuclear test.
South Korea says it suspects a nuclear test caused an earthquake Tuesday in North Korea just north of a site where the country conducted two previous atomic tests. North Korea has yet to confirm whether the tremor resulted from a widely anticipated third nuclear test.
I'm fascinated by North Korea. If I could, I'd love to see it for myself some day. I think the most interesting part is the fact that, in general, the North Korean people are closed off from being exposed to the world outside their borders.
