  •  Guam. (0+ / 0-)

    I have family living in Guam; two weeks in the mainland, two weeks in Guam, and I am very glad that said family member's mainland two weeks began yesterday morning.  DPRK could easily hit Guam and they may miscalculate that, by not hitting the mainland or Hawai'i, they could extract concessions without starting a war.  After all, it worked for when the DPRK struck the South - they've sunken an ROK naval vessel and shelled an island off the ROK's west coast with substantially no negative consequences.

    Anyhow, we know they have nuclear weapons, they blow one up as a test every few years; that part is basically undisputed. What is less clear is whether or not they have been miniaturized to fit on an ICBM.
