ok now then the link says "North Korea is believed to have more than 1,000 missiles of varying capabilities, including long-range missiles which could one day strike the US." and from this i will say about 200 could hit the US main land , 500 or so could hit Hawaii that is 700 missiles now lets say 10% get through the MDS, er thats Missile Defense System or "star wars" Ronald Reagan plan for you that remember , so we have 70 missiles that could in theory hit the US mainland and Hawaii, 300 is more than enough to take out South Korea. also from the link

North Korea is believed to have more than 1,000 missiles of varying capabilities, including long-range missiles which could one day strike the US.
Pyongyang's programme has progressed over the last few decades from tactical artillery rockets in the 1960s and 70s to short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles in the 1980s and 90s. Systems capable of greater ranges are understood to be under research and development.
According to the Council on Foreign Relations, an independent think-tank, some of North Korea's missiles also have the capability to carry nuclear warheads. However, the country is not yet thought to have developed such warheads.
now they did launch a sat missile in Dec and have one ready to go, my thinking is if you have one then you 2 if you have that then you 10 get to that then you can have as many as you want, for what we do know about DPRK is only what they say , and that is not that much. If you now what to look for then you can see behind the curtain or obscurity. missile parts, missile fuel, missile factory's x output x days weeks,then test flights in Dec they got it right so by that calculation they might have as many, 700 to go, not all will have nukes some with Bio or Chem or a mix there of english.sina.com... now lets look at their new missile missilethreat.com... and then look at China's Missiles and their build up to getting it right missilethreat.com... so what does this have to do with DPRK and Un's nuke passion?
Short range: 1,000km or less
Medium range: 1,000-3,000km
Intermediate range: 3,000-5,500 km
Intercontinental: Greater than 5,500km
With its statement, it raised the possibility of a limited military clash between North and South Korea escalating into all-out war. A problem is, the JSC did not clearly define what “commanding forces” would entail.
Also unusual is the fact that the vow to retaliate to any provocations came with President Park Geun-hye’s stamp of approval.
"For 60 years, the Armistice Agreement has ensured peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. It concerns me when any signatory to a mutual agreement makes a public statement contrary to that agreement," Gen. James Thurman, the UNC commander, said in a statement. "As the UNC Commander, I am charged to fully enforce the conditions of the armistice."

I sincerely believe that North Korea is nothing more than China's launch pad. North Korea has nothing, is nothing. But, if they launched a nuke at the US, no one would be looking at China as the bad guy - would they.
China is the one who historically hates Japan and the US positions over there - why wouldn't China use North Korea as a launch pad and blame it on them.. China has it's own economic implosion soon to happen.

Its not actually a divine law that the USA must get deeply involved in the politics of every other country in the world.
Drones are not really a great option if the other country have an Air Force.
Seems threats of nuclear Armageddon concern Americans!
