A recent nuclear weapons explosion drill in New York City. President Obama saying in March that he “continues to be much more concerned when it comes to our security with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan.” And North Korea’s continued nuclear weapons development. Are all of these connected somehow?

That’s at least a possibility, given what a top U.S. general said recently regarding Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities.

The U.S. and the world already know that North Korea has a nuclear capability; the North has tested nuclear devices in 2006, 2009 and 2013. But thus far, few experts have said they believe the North has the capability to miniaturize nuclear warheads and place them atop ballistic missiles.

But Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, speaking to reporters at the Pentagon October 24, said while the changes are “pretty darn low” that such a missile system would be accurate, because the North has not yet tested one, it is highly possible that Pyongyang may nevertheless possess a ballistic missile capable of reaching the U.S.

Scaparrotti, currently the commander of United Nations Command, R.O.K.-U.S. Combined Forces Command and U.S. Forces Korea, says the North has claimed to possess such a missile, which it says would be launched from a road-mobile launcher, which makes it more difficult to track and monitor via satellite.

‘They have been working on this a long time’
