Bombshell Washington Post Report Confirms the Worst About North Korea

According to a report today from the Washington Post, North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead able to fit inside its missiles.

The communist country is now on the verge of becoming a “full-fledged nuclear power,” according to the Post, and intelligence reports have estimated that Kim Jong Un now controls as many as 60 nuclear weapons, although experts say it could be less.

Kim Jong Un’s regime has grown confident in its military capabilities resulting in an emboldened leader who lacks reason and who refuses to discontinue nuclear weapons testing despite crippling economic sanctions imposed on North Korea by the U.N. Security Council.

The rogue country’s arsenal is advancing much faster than analysts had anticipated, but the key question remains: “How are they accelerating so quickly?” asked TheBlaze’s Brandon Morse on Tuesday's installment of Think Tank.

The disturbing report reveals even more troubling details than from just last month. The Post said, “U.S. officials last month concluded that Pyongyang is also outpacing expectations in its effort to build an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking cities on the American mainland.” Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York are all in range of North Korea’s ICBM.

They’ve also vowed to make the U.S. pay immensely for the sanctions against the country that will cost them $1 billion and ban coal, iron, seafood, and other exports from the country.

On Tuesday’s show, the panel discussed the implications of the recent report and the likelihood of full on war with North Korea if things don’t de-escalate.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
