For months now, North Korea has been threatening to launch a nuclear missile strike against the U.S. mainland.
However, the Pentagon has been quite confident in its assertions that the reclusive country doesn't have the technology to actually put a nuclear warhead atop a ballistic missile.
And even if North Korea were able to match a nuke with an ICBM, our military leaders said it could never reach the U.S. mainland.
But we knew better than to be so dismissive.
North Korea has sold so many missiles to Iran, Syria, Pakistan and others that intelligence analysts refer to the arms-dealer as "Missiles "R' Us."
That's why – back in February and March, in reports in both Private Briefing and Money Morning – we cautioned that North Korea's weapons technologies were likely much more advanced than the Pentagon would have us believe.
Now it looks like we were right to be so cautious.
