Rumors of War - Kings of the North

UPI - North Korea releases photo of miniaturized nuclear warhead
UPI reports: "North Korean state media showed off a photo of what it says is leader Kim Jong Un with a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile. [...] If true, this could pose a serious threat to North Korea's neighbors as well as to the United States. North Korea said it tested a nuclear bomb on Jan. 6, and has recently accelerated its belligerent rhetoric in response to recent additional sanctions imposed by the United Nations."

Reuters - North Korea fires missiles, liquidates Seoul's assets
Reuters reports: "North Korea fired two short-range ballistic missiles into the sea on Thursday, Seoul said, as South Korea and the United States conducted massive war games. The North also announced it has scrapped all agreements with the South on commercial exchange projects and would 'liquidate' South Korean assets left behind in its territory. North Korea has a large stockpile of short-range missiles and is developing long-range and intercontinental missiles as well. "

Comment: Well, that didn't take long. A day after China signaled a new willingness to enforce UN sanctions North Korea has reminded the world that not only to they have nuclear weapons, they now have warheads small enough to fit on a ballistic missile. This is a very dangerous situation.
