With tensions understandably high, some are trying to reassure Americans that even though North Korea does have nuclear weapons, it doesn't have the ability to strike the US. What it does have, however, is the ability to fire nukes at the surrounding countries, as well as any American soldiers stationed within them:
“Most experts say it's highly unlikely that the North currently has a reliable, intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching U.S. shores, let alone the ability to arm it with a miniaturized nuclear warhead. But the North can probably place nuclear warheads on its shorter-range Scuds and its 1,300-kilometer-range Rodong missiles, which can strike targets in South Korea and Japan, said Lee Choon Geun, an analyst from the South's state-funded Science and Technology Policy Institute. Other analysts, however, question this.
Kim made the most recent warning while guiding the test-firing of a new large-caliber multiple launch rocket system, the report said.
The North's report didn't say when the test-firing happened, but many in South Korea believe it likely refers to the six short-range projectiles that Seoul said North Korea fired into the sea on Thursday.
South Korea's Defense Ministry said the North Korean projectiles, fired from the eastern coastal town of Wonsan, flew about 60 to 90 miles. Ministry officials said they couldn't confirm whether the projectiles were those fired by the weapons system KCNA referred to.
Thursday's firings were seen as a ‘low-level' response to the U.N. sanctions, with North Korea unlikely to launch any major provocation until its landmark ruling Workers' Party convention in May, according to Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.”

Somebody in charge, such as our “commander in chief” should grow a pair of gonads and put this North Korean in his place. Do we even have such a person at this time?
