Not sure how "quiet" it is, since they are publishing it! Sabre rattling or threat?

“Being prepared” is not actually the same thing as “readying”.

So they can’t launch any Non-Nuc attacks? This title is really stupid, even if it was verbatim.

Perhaps released to put the idea in their heads. An intermediate capability the NORKS need to consider. I hate to say it but I’m very uncomfortable relying on US intelligence. It was bad enough in the Iraqi build up, after 8 years of Barry’s meddling who knows.

Two MIRV’d 8 payloaded missiles more like or better 48 lower yield Sub launched nuclear cruise missiles- nap of the earth. No need to expend rather expensive strategic weapons. These could be neutron and/or with graphite crystals conventional and shut the place down.

BS to the Max.
The only country who ever did anything even remotely like this was Israel after the ‘73 war.
The country was very close to collapse and as a backup plan, loaded nuclear weapons on some of their fighter-bombers.

You don’t use tactical nuclear weapons as a first strike unless you are really fat and live in North Korea.
