Nuclear War May Be Break Out At Any Moment?

This words warned Monday by North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador that the situation on the Korean peninsula “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”

And even we know that Kim In Ryong told the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee that North Korea is the only country in the world that has been subjected to “such an extreme and direct nuclear threat” from the United States since the 1970s.

As up to know Kim’s speech follows escalating threats between North Korea and the United States and increasingly tough U.N. sanctions. Even to know better we below gathered some information about North Korea successful and failure operations below here.

Let’s Just Have A Look Of Failures And Success Of North Korea 

North Korea has had some notable failures in its missile program. The Musudan missiles failed nearly all of their flights.

“We would see North Korea moving Musudans around,” said Postol. “They hadn’t been tested though. Once they started to fly it, it failed almost all the time.”

“They made a bad design choice in this case and had a large number of failures,” he said. “Maybe they hoped to get their manufacturing ability to a higher level. They were wrong.”

The Hwasong-12 and 14, unlike the Musudan, have been very successful. Out of eight launches, there have been only three unconfirmed failures.

These recent increase in missile launches and the apparent higher performance of these missiles seemingly indicate a vast improvement in North Korea’s nuclear missile capabilities.

However, Schiller agrees with Postol that these capabilities could not have occurred without Russian motors.

“For a first-generation rocket, dozens of launches and over 10 years of development are typically required. At least five more years of development and 10 more launches are usually needed to verify a weapon is ready for war,” he said.


“North Korea’s highest priority is to survive as a state,” said Postol. “They are abundantly aware that the U.S. has a history of trying to destabilize countries that the U.S. doesn’t like. They’re saying, don’t try it with us.”

“They want to look dangerous to deter any foreign interference,” said Schiller. “That’s all they really want.”
