    Report: North Korea may have almost 250 nuclear weapons by 2027 - UPI.com

    The report recommends deploying tactical nuclear weapons in South Korea as a deterrent.

    Of course, if they did strike at South Korea or the U.S., we could certainly retaliate and leave nothing left standing in North Korea.

    The report suggests that future negotiations would likely fail at the goal of denuclearization and recommends that the US and South Korea explore alternatives, such as deploying tactical nukes in South Korea and increase our intelligence collection capabilities.

    As of January 2020, North Korea had 30 to 40 nuclear warheads and could produce enough fissile material for six or seven bombs a year, according to an estimate by the Arms Control Association.
