INTELLIGENCE agencies have obtained information that North Korea has assembled several nuclear warheads for its medium-range Rodong missiles capable of targeting Japan, an analyst says.
Daniel Pinkston, senior analyst with the Brussels-based International Crisis Group, said he had received the information from agencies he declined to identify.
He said the agencies believe that probably five to eight warheads have been assembled.
Mr Pinkston said the agencies did not reveal the source of their information to him.
"It might be right, it might be wrong - but if others believe it is true, it has implications for the psychological aspects of deterrence," he said, describing the assessment as "quite significant".

He can't do crap. Everything he does is for show. If he launched anything on any country, he would be annihilated almost immediately. There is absolutely no threat from North Korea.

According to Worldtribune, Japan and the US do not have the capacity to intercept the missiles, so why mobilize the ships?
NK want to show of their pride, especially to South Korea, to show that a united Korea would have a much greater power.
Seoul - North Korea will view any interception by Japan of its satellite launch as an aggressive act and respond with its "most powerful military means", the communist state's news agency said on Tuesday. If Japan dares to shoot down the satellite, the Korean Central News Agency said, "our military will consider it as gunfire from the war criminal Japan that signals a re-invasion 60 years after World War II". The North Korean military will "mercilessly crush all interceptors... with our most powerful military means", it added.
