North Korea’s nuclear weapons program is advancing quickly. This year, it has tested a suite of short- and medium-range ballistic missiles that can hit neighbors and American bases in East Asia, submarine-launched ballistic missiles, two intercontinental-range ballistic missiles and a purported thermonuclear weapon capable of flattening a city. Soon Kim Jong In will be able to deliver it to our shores, if he cannot do so already.
"Why Kim Jong-In Wouldn’t Be Irrational to Use a Nuclear Bomb First" is from the September 08, 2017 Outlook section of The Washington Post. It was written by Vipin Narang and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
