North Korea Claims It Can Load Hydrogen Bomb Onto Missile

In this undated image distributed on Sunday Sept. 3 2017 by the North Korean government shows North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at an undisclosed location. North Korea’s state media on Sunday Sept 3 2017 said leader Kim Jong Un inspected the loadin

Top North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has inspected a nuclear bomb producing institute where a H-bomb to be loaded into an intercontinental ballistic missile was recently produced.

North Korea hasn't tested a nuclear device since September a year ago, meaning its possible the DPRK could now be preparing for another test, something South Korean intelligence officials recently stated can happen at any time.

Rice speculated that China "must have talked to him" Kim Jong Un about the threats, as they quickly stood down from the situation following President Trump's comments that the USA would respond with "fire and fury" if North Korea continued its threats.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who guided work for "nuclear weaponization" during a visit to the institute, "watched a H-bomb to be loaded into new ICBM", it reported.

North Korea last tested a nuclear device about a year ago.

The latest claim also comes as South Korea, the US, and Japan press China to impose stronger economic measures to stop Kim's nuclear ambitions. Analysts say Kim wants nuclear power-to nuclear power conversation with the US without the South's involvement.

Angels leap into playoff race with deals for Upton, Phillips
Tigers acquired RHP Grayson Long and a player to be named later or cash considerations from the Angels for OF Justin Upton . He's been on a tear this season for Detroit , with a 138 wRC+, a.264 ISO and 28 home runs in 125 games.

The United States and South Korea on September 1 said they agreed to strengthen Seoul's defenses, and Washington approved the sale of billions of dollars worth of arms to the South to counter the North. There is also scepticism about the North's claims to have developed a hydrogen bomb, which is more powerful than an atomic bomb.

There was no independent confirmation of the North Korean reports, and Western officials did not comment directly on the claims.

It is clear, however, that each new missile and nuclear test gives the North invaluable information that allows big jumps in capability.

"Though we cannot verify the claim, (North Korea) wants us to believe that it can launch a thermonuclear strike now, if it is attacked".

The report came just days after a Trump administration ban on travel by Americans to North Korea took effect.

North Korea is thought to have a growing arsenal of nuclear bombs and has spent decades trying to ideal a multistage, long-range missile to eventually carry smaller versions of those bombs.
