North Korea’s “Mini Nuke” Might Be Real After All

mini nuke north korea

When North Korea released this photo of their dear leader standing behind a miniaturized nuke earlier this month, the world gave out a collective chuckle. I know I did. The device in that photo looks like a prop for a sci-fi movie. On social media, everyone pointed out that it looked like a disco ball. Clearly Kim Jong-un had his lackeys cook up an intimidating looking model for the cameras. His threats are hollow right?

Normally yes. In this case however, there appears to be some truth behind that image. Undoubtedly, the device is a mock-up of some kind. If it were completely real, and loaded with plutonium or uranium, everyone standing around it would need protective gear. But according to some experts the model is surprisingly accurate.

Melisa Hanham, a North Korea analyst working for East Asia Nonproliferation Program, told NPR recently that “They definitely know what a bomb looks like. I mean, that model didn’t come out of thin air. It’s not a weird unicorn or anything. It has roots in the truth.”

Bruce Kinlinger, a former CIA analyst who was an expert on North Korea, said that while there’s no evidence to suggest that North Korea has a functioning ICBM to carry a miniaturized warhead, they are definitely making progress in that direction. “They’re on a path to achieving a nuclear warhead capability that they can deliver to the U.S., Japan and South Korea.”

Both analysts agreed that mini nuke model wasn’t just for show, and that many of its details were spot on. Its accuracy suggests that the regime in Pyongyang is on the right track to building a nuclear ICBM.

  • What is the difference between a nuclear and a non-nuclear ICBM?
    Seriously, the warhead is the only difference, so it is indicative of extreme ignorance to refer to the vehicle as nuclear or non-nuclear. Of course, the public fool system has reduced most of us to the intellect of a Bill Nye fan, so…
    It would take a very sensitive hand-holdable scintillation counter to detect neutrons and/or gamma rays from the warhead in the picture, assuming it was functional, so likelihood of radiation poisoning in the period of time that it was ogled is quite slight.

    Do they really need an ICBM? If they have a bona-fide mini nuke then all they need is a Cessna 172 with long range tanks and crazy martyr-wanna-be pilot to push the button when he’s over Los Angeles (or San Francisco, Seattle…) None of which is in short supply, especially the crazy pilot.

      Or they could just put them in any of their 50 submarines and sail them to the port they want to nuke in a kamikazi attack. In the future they won’t have to do it that way. They are currently in the final stages of developing a submarine launched ballistic missile.

    “They definitely know what a bomb looks like.”

    No they don’t. They’ve got the color wrong. But the rest is OK.

    That is not a mock up. It is a real bomb. Kim Jong Un was supervising the mounting of warheads to missiles. You don’t need protective clothing. You can hold plutonium in your hand as long as you don’t scratch it. Since the plutonium and tritium are inside the bomb, there is no danger to the surrounding people. Any gamma, x rays, and neutrons probably are absorbed by the casing. Neutrons have a mean free path in plutonium that is a not much more than the diameter of the core. The same thing goes for the U-238 tamper. Any escaping radiation is mostly from the outer surface of the U-238 tamper which is surrounded by explosives and the outer metal casing. That should be the only possible issue since alpha particles can be stopped by paper and beta particles by aluminum foil. Of course they could be wearing lead aprons under those heavy jackets just to be sure.

    They would be likely to use it before the Nerogro leaves office. They would not want to face a Donald Trump.

    The negro they don’t mind knowing he has no backbone. But will they take that chance that the American people will remove the negro and bring the downfall of the Fatman’s kingdom?
