Pyongyang is capable of launching an ICBM with a nuclear warhead from a hard-to-track mobile launcher at the US West Coast, the US aerospace defense commander has said. The capability is disputed by a study from leading North Korea-watchers, however.

“Our assessment is that they have the ability to put a nuclear weapon on a KN-08 [ballistic missile] and shoot it at the homeland. We assess that it’s operational today, and so we practice to go against it,” Admiral William Gortney, the head of NORAD and the US Northern Command, told reporters Tuesday, citing intelligence assessments.

According to Gortney, despite no clear evidence the missile has been tested, such assessment was a “prudent decision” due to the re-locatable nature of the truck-like system it is based on, which “makes it very difficult for us to be able to counter it.”
