I would never say that we aren't vulnerable, no matter who we are dealing with. We don't know if NK has a deal going with say, Cuba to bring one
of these bad boys over and hit Florida or something.
We don't know if they may have a way to install a launch bay on say, a container ship or something and fire it from some distance off shore that would
guarantee it reach us before our scramble/intercept times could catch up with it. I don't know, guessing 100 Miles off shore or something.
What if they do that and fire something in on a near horizontal trajectory that ends up under our radar so to speak. Maybe it doesn't drop and
detonate but maybe it just explodes over a large city at extremely low elevation. The fallout and the shockwave would certainly do something more
than just wake every one up.
Underestimation is hard to avoid some times but when dealing with nukes and whackos, it's better to do the best estimating you can an then double
