World U.S.-North Korea Nuclear War ‘May Break Out at Any Moment,’ Pyongyang’s UN Ambassador Says Jason Le Miere,Newsweek 5 hours ago Comments Like Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email North Korea’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations, Kim In-ryong, said at a press conference Monday that the United States has “created a dangerous situation in which a thermo-nuclear war may break out at any moment.” Related: Mike Pence Reminds North Korea It Could Be in for Same Treatment As Syria and Afghanistan The comments come at a time of rapidly increasing tension between North Korea and the United States over its continued nuclear and missile tests. Speaking at the United Nations headquarters in New York, Kim excoriated the U.S. for more than 30 minutes, stating that it was solely to blame for an escalation in rhetoric and the push toward military confrontation.

I guess they want to show the world they can get a nuke to its target before showing off more nuclear abilities ?
North Korea already has the ability to get a nuke anywhere it may want to in the world. They have some highly developed shipping routes and ample ability to supply a nuclear weapon to a third party actor that would be able to deploy it without the use of a ballistic missile.
In the more conventional sense, the ballistic missiles that everyone seems to be more worried about are called the KN-08 and the KN-14. These are supposedly the ones that can be fitted with a nuclear warhead. It's foolish to underestimate North Korea. Any engagement with them is going to get really bloody, really fast. And they are obviously not opposed to using their nuclear arsenal.
The Carl Vinson carrier group is still about 3,500 miles away from the DPRK. Once it gets closer you can expect the rhetoric to ramp up quite a bit. Foal Eagle 2017 is already underway and will get much bigger once the Carl Vinson arrives later this month. Be ready for some fireworks, then. These exercises are always considered offensive to the DPRK and under such heightened tensions as we have right now they may just be the spark that lights the North Korean fire everyone apparently wants to see.

Thermo-nuclear war? They can't even launch a rocket successfully. We'll flash-fry that place before 'Lil Kim even presses his launch button.
